Removed program but blank icon is still in control panel, help.

Please see the attached pic.

I have uninstalled Avira weeks ago and only just now noticed it's blank icon is still present in the control panel when using "small" icon view.

When I click it, Windows tells me "application not found", is there a way to remove it from the list?

thanks you two, I was able to remove it by deleting it from the registry and then rebooting

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ ControlPanel \ NameSpace
