Game demo will not uninstall

  1. I downloaded a demo of PainKiller and it ran nicely, but now I noticed since I went to uninstall it....there is no uninstaller...and the game does not show on the program list of any uninstaller I try to use.
    I tried using the computers "ad / remove" program but it is not there either.
    I looked at Program Files folders and I see the folder of the game 'DreamCatcher' but it contains no self uninstaller.
    Does anyone know how to get rid of this demo?
    I run Windows XP.Home Edition.
    Thank you.

    I re- installed the game and then it showed on Programs......I then used the Revo Uninstaller....so now it is uninstalled problem solved.

    If I get stuck like that I just "Shift + delete" all the files that comes with the game and then I let ccleaner remove the registry entry :p ...I know it's not right to do it that way but it works :D
