Sometimes the program's folder will have an uninstall file that you can run. You can also try removing in safemode. There are also uninstall programs out there that you could try
Example: myuninstaller

Hi, I did as you suggested and run unistaller but it still says log cannot be found I then tried opening the folder with the uninstall and says the same thing. Is there anything else I could try?

If it is an empty file try renaming it and then delete it.

If you still have (or can get) the original installation file or disk for a program that cannot be un-installed, you can try installing it again. Some installers will detect the existing installation, and offer to repair or un-install. If these are not offered, re-installing the program anyway may correct the corruption and allow the un-install to then work correctly.
