uninstall problem

please help. i installed this file but there was an error before it finished. then i wanted to remove it but there's no icon in the remove programs section in the control panel. i tried looking in drive C my program files, in the folder of the program which installed erroneously, but there's no uninstall icon in there. i also checked in the start menu but i can only see the icon to run the program, no uninstall icon. so in my frustration, i deleted every file that i can see relating this program. In drive C, and in the start menu. but when i tried to install the program again, it says that I cannot continue the installation because the program is already installed. please help out folks.... How can I remove the program entirely from my computer... I don't know where to look for any more files that's clinging on my system.

The easy answer to this is to do a system restore to the point just before this program was installed.

So, go to system restore and then restore to the point previous to installation of bogus program was installed...

this would restore all the other programs that I installed also, and some settings in my OS that i customized which is a lot... Is there any other way aside from that?

@ richc46: have ccleaner latest version and used it after deleting the program files, also used 1click maintenance from TuneUp Utilities 2011. but still, when I reinstall the program it still detects the same way, that the program has already been installed.

Never ever use TuneUp utilities, it can damage your OS, did you try Revo?
