The standard way to uninstall programs is through Control panel-Programs & Features. If you're talking about left over folders/files and registry entries, you can remove the orphaned registry entries with CCleaner, as for the folders/files they'll need to be removed manually.
Bottomline is whether the computer's performance is as expected given whatever hardware it has. If that is so, dont bother too much about what used to be installed, and if it does bother you a clean install is the way.
