For Future reference you can use a nice uninstall tool like Revo uninstaller Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems
Works Great for getting rid of stubborn programs. One caviat though is that the program must be installed for Revo to see it. You can use the target mode but it is not quite as successful. I use it for uninstalling everything period and I believe my system to be pretty clean as it gets files AND reg keys.

I had a strange problem some time ago on W7 with a deleted file (or one that I though was long deleted anyway). It was a .jpg

It was only using a forum (such as this) and using the "advanced" and "manage attachements" option that the small window that opens and allows you to browse for a file to attach showed this long deleted file in its original location. I couldn't quite believe it. I closed the forum and went to search for this file and couldn't locate it. I went back and again used the forum to open the small "browse for files" window and there it was. By right clicking the file in that window I could delete it.

How weird was that ?
