After uninstalling MySQL and restarting the computer windows still try to start the service.

How to repeat:
just uninstall MySQL and restart your computer. I used automatic.

Suggested fix:
please remove from registry:

The un-install process currently doesn't remove the service,
is necessary to remove it before, using the mysqld-nt server
or any other server:

mysqld-nt --remove 
or for a custom name service:
mysqld-nt --remove service_name

Mark, I assume this will be resolved with our new installer? Or is this 
something that Greg should look into?

Look at the bugreport #6780 I just entered it and afterwards saw similarities between yours and mine

MySQL-4.1 uses new installer, the old one is obsolete now.
