1.Click on the Start menu
2.Type: msconfig
3.Press Enter to open msconfig
4.Click on Startup
5.Find this '80 days' file
6.Uncheck it
7.Close msconfig
8.Restart your computer when it asks you to restart it
9.This should work, but if it doesn't, click on the Start menu again, type msconfig and open msconfig again.
10.Click on Services
11.At the bottom click on Hide all Microsoft services, so that it is checked
12.Now in Services find this '80 days' file
13.If you find it, uncheck it. If you don't, there is nothing more I can help you with
14.Close msconfig
15.Restart your computer when it asks you to restart it
That's it! :)

I find no such game or website as you listed.  Are you sure that the posted wording is correct?

@D Willis
 
 
I have found many many sources to get the game from including Amazon so I'm not sure if they all follow these rules.
 
Looks like you will be searching your hard drive for the files to remove.
 
I'm not real sure of the software they offer to remove this game so I Don't recommend that you click the blue button "Remove Around The World in 80 Days" it looks like some shady program that may cause more problems.
 
Use the search query "removing around the world in 80 days game" I didn't give you the proper link, or search for other removal steps.
.
Hope this is helpful
