    You shouldn't try to uninstall a program by deleting its individual files. This will leave dead ends in the registry and may cause instability. You should use its uninstaller or preferably a specialized program like Revo Uninstaller.

    How did it get on your computer?

    Can you now see the program in start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs?
