If you have a program that won't uninstall, you could simply start in safe mode, then delete the directory where the program lives. Now you have to remove it from the Add/Remove program list. Simple, though.

Run the Registry Editor (REGEDIT).

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Uninstall
and remove any unwanted subkeys under “Uninstall.”
