HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\services

check if the service is correctly uninstalled

If there are entries left at
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services
then check, if the service is correctly uninstalled. Look in the setup log of your software removal.
Can you see the service name in the service applet?
The entries in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\services
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\services
are copies of the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services entries, which are used for the "last known good".
Which operating system are you using?
