My go-to solvent for non-ionized glue residues (use water for ionized) on all
sorts of materials has been, for many years, mineral spirits (US name; 'white
spirit', in the UK):

It scores highly on both i) 'doesn't harm underlying material' and ii) 'softens residues'
axes. (I've mostly used it on books, to remove stickers, but my experience should
transfer to use on computers.)

Sage, and important, advice for _any_ removal method.
