Registries getting removed on uninstallation

I have a setup capture. On uninstallation it deletes 3 registry entries, but those are not a part of the application. I found this using picture taker. And those registries seems to be empty.
Any comments on why those registries are reflecting.

Is the RemoveRegistry table populated?

No. There are no entries in RemoveRegistry table.

The only other thing I can think of is perhaps there's a Custom Action. Step through the MSI with your authoring tool's debugger and with ProcMon running alongside. As soon as you see the registry settings being removed in ProcMon, whichever CA is running is likely to be responsible. You can then comment-out the CA and re-run the uninstall.
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
