cant uninstall Windows Live Wave 4 Beta

well i made the grave mistake of installing this without a backup. now it thinks its still installed, but there is no windows live folders on my computer and my registry from what i can tell has no mention of them. now i jsut have to figure out how to get the OS to think that there is no windows live so i can reinstall windows live wave 3. anyone have any ideas?

It is part of that group.
Uninstall

Or

Use system restore from a point prior to your installation.

Since I have to go soon. Here is my answer, to any answer that you give

If installed a short time ago, use system restore. Look for the box, lower left. That says check for additional points.

If that does not work
Use this and then try to install
