Can't Uninstall Certain Programs

Hello!

I have an issue, there is a couple programs on my computer that I can't uninstall, now don't get me wrong, I don't have a virus and all the programs I can't uninstall are trusted programs used by many people.

First, I'll list off the things I can't uninstall.

Battlefield 3.
Ralink RT2870 Wireless Lan Card. (A driver for a wireless internet card I used a very long time ago).

When I try to uninstall them, nothing happens, and if I try to uninstall something else after I've tried to uninstall, for example Battlefield 3, it tells me to wait until the program is finished uninstalling, after 5 minutes or so I can uninstall other programs without that box popping up.

Hey, I downloaded CCleaner, it did not want to uninstall them, but it gave me the option to delete them from my list of programs, so I did that, seeing as I have tried to many things now, thank you very much :).
