Hi Rigz

Try to delete it from this location rather that the start menu itself see if that will remove it for you.

C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\StartMenu

What is the error message you are receiving

Securely delete files you want to erase forever
If you can recover your files with Recuva, then a hacker can too. Anyone with access to your drives can run Recuva or a similar program to retrieve old files that may contain financial records, passwords, confidential documents, or other information you simply want to keep private.
Although our program is called Recuva (for "recover"), we understand the potential for abuse that recovery software has. That's why we've built in a way to erase traces of your files. It's an added safeguard that only Recuva has.
Here's an example of how Recuva can protect your privacy:
After completing your budget for 2009, you delete the old budget file and start a new one for 2010. Most likely, the 2009 budget file will remain recoverable on your Windows PC for a good while, especially with a strong recovery program.
To make sure the 2009 budget is gone for good, run Recuva and search for documents on that drive. When Recuva finds the 2009BUDGET.xls file, right-click it and select Secure Overwrite.
Recuva overwrites the portion of the hard drive where the ghost of 2009BUDGET.xls lives repeatedly until no recovery software (Recuva included) can ever get the file back.
If you're looking for more advanced privacy and cleaning features, you'll want to check out our acclaimed CCleaner software. You can use CCleaner to erase cookies, passwords, browsing histories, names of recently-used documents and more.

Hello Rigz,

You might see if you may be able to delete it with the free program Unlocker from the location below.

C:\Users\(user name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

or

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Did you restart your system after the uninstallation?
Mayn such issues will be solved after uninstallation, as some files stay in use during the uninstall process.

Another option, reinstall the same program and then uninstall it.
