Have you tried a disk cleaning program such as CCleaner?

How did you uninstall the program? Through the control panel or using the program's uninstaller or Revo or ??

Do you get any particular error message when you attempt to delete the shortcut?

You might reinstall it and then uninstall again, possibly with Revo.
