Could you give a little more information, please.

1. How did you "restore" your windows 7 64bit? Did you use a restore point and System Restore? Did you do a Repair Install? Something else?

2. Where does it show that the game is still installed? The Start menu > All Programs? Control Panel > Programs and Features? A desktop shortcut icon? Someplace else?

It may be that the uninstaller is now missing.Sometimes its best oddly enough to re-install the game then run the un-installer to remove it fully. Or if its a 32bit game you could have a look at revo uninstaller which may be able to uninstall it for you - Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems.
Wait and see what marsmimar comes back with.

I agree with Danny's advice. If you can reinstall the program it will also reinstall the uninstaller. If you no longer have access to the game Revo is a pretty good tool. Since the game is showing up in control panel, what happens if you click on the game to highlight it and then click uninstall? Do you get any error message?

If you do use Revo, make sure you use the default settings for the registry scan. The deep scan is pretty ruthless and can cause problems if used unwisely.

As ever, it's always best to either backup the full registry or create a restore point before you use Revo.

I get this error:

I borrowed that game for little bit and after that person who owned it, sold it. when I didn't want it.
So I don't have any possible way to reinstall it and uninstall.

I did that scan with Revo.. and here it found loftover registry items.. what should I do with them..

Just let Revo delete them - you might want to create a restore point first - you're not using the game any more so there's no point in leaving the registry cluttered up with these unwanted leftovers.
