Windows 7: Uninstalling the game that cannot be uninstall in Programs and Feature

Uninstalling the game that cannot be uninstall in Programs and Feature

First I would put a Brief History on how I got this problem;

I Uninstall some game then later I downloaded AVG without knowing that it can slow my Laptop then I cannot Uninstall AVG so i use "System Restore" then it goes back to the previous restore point which is the time where the game I uninstall is not deleted and when I'am trying to uninstall the game then this pops out cannot be uninstall doesn't exist and I try if the game can be open or play but it doesn't open. I try to use CCleaner but same pops out cannot be uninstall doesn't exist. I also try Revo Uninstaller but cannot uninstall the only thing that Revo Uninstaller do is to clean the files that the game made.

Now after the Revo Uninstaller clean/delete the files created by game I try to Uninstall Using Revo Uninstaller this pops out cannot be uninstall doesn't exist while in CCLeaner this pops out "Error 2 - The system cannot find the file specified"

Later I uninstall Revo Uninstaller

In Programs and features this pops out please see the upload file.

If download the game it is possible to uninstall but it will took me for days since it is a large file.

My question is it okay to remove from the programs and features that does exactly deleted the file?
Other ways to do to permanently delete the game.

If the game isn't messing with the system it is ok to delete its listing at Programs. But I would instead use Wise Program Uninstaller to Forcibly Remove it. This might get other things that were left behind from an incomplete install. I then would check c:\program files, c:\program data and c:\users\<user name>\apppdata\roaming for any files left over. You could also do a registry search, but it isn't really necessary, and I would back up the entire registry and make a recovery disk first.

As for AVG, go to their site and download their own uninstall utility. This is a must if you had a problem uninstall. If you want a lightweight, effective AV I recommend Panda.
