Yes the solution that "Nailed it" for me was this one :-
Well if this is the problem then you could try out this method... although it is quite tricky one and can some time cause unexpected results.
as we all know even if we delete software from the installation directory but it is yet not removed form the registry.
so the software you want to remove, first search for it in the system registry.
to open it type"regedit" in the run dialog box.
when it opens press ctrl+f and type the name of the program and search for it.
delete all the keys you find, and continue it by pressing F3 key.
when you have deleted all, then delete it from the installation directory.
Try cleaning the TEMP folder also and then restart your compuer.
Although it might happen that it is still visible in the Add or Remove program, but don't worry its all done.
A big :-) all round .............
