Hello yanky128,

It's not uncommon for the Windows uninstaller to leave remnants of files and folders on the hard drive after an app has been "uninstalled." One way around this is to use software such as Revo Uninstaller. With Revo, you will get a more complete uninstall.

If you use CCleaner, you may wish to add CCEnhancer. This software integrates with CCleaner to add more programs to the clean list.

Regarding existing files/folders on your system:
  • "C:\Program Files" contain 64-bit software that is or was installed.
  • "C:\Program Files (x86)" contain 32-bit software that is or was installed.
  • "C:\Users\<yourUserName>\Downloads" is the typical downloaded files folder.
Examine these folders for remnants of deleted programs.

Use CAUTION when removing any files/folders. Delete them to the Recycling Bin. Remnant files/folders generally cause no harm to your computer nor will removing them necessarily improve computing performance. Removing the wrong file or folder by mistake; however, can have profound consequences.

Good luck.
