I'm hardly trying to remove squid completly, to reinstall it clearly. (Debian 6). So i used as root:

apt-get remove --purge squid
apt-get remove --purge squid3

but

find / -name squid*

returns

/var/cache/squid
/var/lib/dpkg/info/squid-cgi.conffiles
/var/lib/dpkg/info/squidclient.md5sums
/var/lib/dpkg/info/squid-cgi.md5sums
/var/lib/dpkg/info/squidclient.list
/var/lib/dpkg/info/squid-cgi.list
/var/spool/squid
/etc/squid3
/etc/squid3/squid.conf.orig
/etc/squid
/etc/logcheck/ignore.d.workstation/squid
/etc/logcheck/ignore.d.paranoid/squid
/etc/logcheck/ignore.d.server/squid
/usr/share/doc/squid-cgi
/usr/share/doc/squidclient
/usr/share/man/man1/squidclient.1.gz
/usr/share/vim/vim72/syntax/squid.vim
/usr/bin/squidclient 

Besides the Log and the dpkg files. Should i remove some of this files/folders to be able to work without old issues?

squidclient and squid-cgi are separate packages, uninstall them too? :) apt-get --purge squidclient squid-cgi should do the trick.

To check what package owns/installed a specific file, type: dpkg -S /usr/bin/squidclient for example.

    apt-get install squid3
