    Boot into safe mode and search your computer for references to the programme and delete them. See if that helps.

    If you want to uninstall an appliction that has no uninstall program and it is not listed in the Add/Remove applet of Control Panel
    (or that uninstall doesn't work), then just delete the directory/files.
    Start Regedit and drill down to :

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ and
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE

    locating the applications entry and delete them.

    Use Explorer to to remove the entries from the Start Menu in either
    C:\Documents and Folders\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\ and/or
    C:\Documents and Folders\(your username)\Start Menu\Programs\

    If there is an entry in the Add/Remove list, start regedit go to:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
    locate the entry and delete it.

    If the app has a service, edit:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services
    and scroll down till you locate it. Then delete it.

    If this app starts automatically and there is no entry in the StartUp folder(s), then use Regedt32 to edit:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Windows
