Many of the Epson printers have several modules that may not have been
removed properly. Depending upon the exact model, a "cleanup" utility
may be available on the Epson support web site. Other models require a
full install/uninstall, driven by software included on the support CD/DVD.
As to registry entries, the first search term to try is epson. I'd print
a text copy of these entries, so that references to "sub entries" are
readable, and thus actionable.
