✔ Best Answer
Use Revo uninstaller free http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo...
Revo will first try to uninstall the program using the native uninstall method which, of course, will not work. Just click on the next step and it will reveal the program's location. Select the branch and sub branch and it will remove all remnants of it.

Edit. If it tells you that the program is still running then go into Task Manager and kill it. Then you should be able to uninstall it.

In case you are not sure how to get to Task Manager, hold down the keys Control, Alt and press Delete, then select Task Manager. In the new window, under Processes you should see that particular program. Click on it and then click End Task.
