Im curious, when upgrading from WB 7.2 to WB 7.4, would it be better to uninstall WB 7.2 first, then install WB 7.4 if I want all traces of the old version to be gone?  Does WB leave any orphaned files/registry settings behind after an uninstall?  I know some Windows applications leave a mess behind in the registry after an uninstall.

You should be fine with installing overtop.  With a minor version update, there's not much, if anything, that changes in the registry, it's typically program side.
