Cannot Find the Installation Log File

I am having a rather bizarre problem.  I'm trying to uninstall MySQL and everything has run smoothly for uninstalling version 4.0.21.  However, under Add/Remove Programs, there's another listing for version 4.0.15.  I've tried uninstalling it and receive the following error:

Unable to locate the installation log file 'C:\mysql\Uninst.isu'.  Uninstallation will not continue.

I've tried everything, leaving the old mySQL folder intact as well as making sure the mySQL folder was deleted and removing the mysql service but it just won't go away.  I'm wondering if I may have to delete it's entry in the system registry. However, before I start messing around with regedit I thought I would see if anyone else has a better idea as to how to fix this.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

try with this..

Check which one works for you..(use the below command upon ur service..say u have mysqld then use 1 ..)

C:\>mysql\bin>mysqld --remove

C:\>mysql\bin>mysqld-max --remove
C:\>mysql\bin>mysqld-max-nt --remove
C:\>mysql\bin>mysqld-nt --remove

If everything goes fine.. u'll see a message lie.. mySQL service removed Successfully

This would remove the service..

I actually have already uninstalled the service.  My problem is there's a reference for MySQL 4.0.15 under Add/Remove Programs and it won't go away.
