Anaconda uninstall breaks cmd

Wasn’t quite sure where to put this but hopefully it’ll get to the right place. When uninstalling Anaconda, a registry key is left in the Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor part of the registry, which causes cmd to always exist with code 1. I know I’m not the only one to have this issue because after months of searching for an answer I finally stumbled across someone else who had the exact problem I did and got it fixed on StackExchange here: crash - Cmd crashes with exit code 1 after uninstalling anaconda - Stack Overflow
So…yeah. To the developers, please fix this. Anaconda is, frankly, invasive enough as is. It doesn’t need to be breaking something as critical as cmd for just uninstalling it on top of that.
