Windows 7: How can i completely uninstall Free Player in Win 7?

How can i completely uninstall Free Player in Win 7?

Hi guys,

I've installed Free Player converter from but later uninstalled it using the uninstall function they've provided.

However, the application icon can't seem to be uninstalled! I've tried to remove it by deleting it in program files AND uninstall program through control panel. Either way, there's a message saying the "file is open in another program" that's why I can't delete it. But it's not open anywhere.

Every time I log on, the player comes up with "Failed to set data for" error message. It's annoying.

Please help. Thank you!
