Sometimes this can happen if you have recently installed a microsoft update and it did not install correctly. If you have the option, try uninstalling some recent microsoft updates and see if that makes a difference.

Also have you tried looking in the programs folder in Windows Explorer for the program you would like to remove. Is there an uninstalll file in there?

Did you try and delete the programs folder before uninstalling. If so use the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility.
