So tekkan, I remove all my Nomadsoft folders, yet when I reinstall RAT it still seems to be finding some configuration somewhere.
Any ideas?

Nothing I can think of, those folders are literally the only place I know of and I've done this many times. Make sure that you do both the Roaming and Local folders.
