Some times when you do figure out how to uninstall little program their are still little things hanging around. Even after checking regedit. I found things today that were removed 2 weeks ago while I was doing a little sneak and peak through files and folders on my computer. Sometimes things are left behind in a running service and won't let you remove then until you go into safe mode and turn them off and then remove them. I can't tell you how all this works but it has happened to me many times. I use add and remove, Revo, Ccleaner, Search Everything, and regedit and still at times their are left overs I find weeks later. I have never had add and remove see all programs on my computers.
A work-around to removing all of the left-over remnants from "deleted" apps/programs is to go into Advanced Search and manually remove them. Search the name of the app/program and in addition, search any other key words that might be used in the files. Also, be sure to search the entire computer, rather than just the Index, and check the box that says: "Include non-indexed, hidden, and system files." If any files turn up, you can just delete them right from the Advanced Search screen.
