Windows 7: Internet Explorer installed by Webshots?

Internet Explorer installed by Webshots?

I recently UN-installed Webshots, but I am left with a shell [it appears] of some version of IE. It is not listed in the programs to be uninstalled, but it is still in my start programs list. If I click on it, it does come up, and gives me a message that "Smile" cannot find ... etc.. That's why I'm assuming it is something Webshots/Smile installed.

How do I get rid of it, if it's not in the uninstall programs list? I want to get rid of it before I install IE 10.

Right click on it in the start menu and click on Open file location and see whats in the folder. If there is and uninstaller run it, if you uninstalled it already then delete the folder and it will be gone.

Right clicking on the Start menu listing doesn't give me an open file location, but it was under the Properties option, which shows iexplore.exe under Programs.

Also there was no delete option when I right clicked the Start Menu option. Wonder what will happen if I install IE 10 without deleting that?
