I somehow have a feature that appears twice in the "Site Collection Features"  list I was able to look it up, see that its scoped at the site level, I was able to deactivate it but whenever I try to Uninstall it completely I get the error "Cannot fine a feature object with path or ID "NameOfMyFeature" in scope Local Farm.  

I did some reading, specifically This article, my problem is identical.  http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/sharepointgeneralprevious/thread/4b736c93-9ec7-4fbd-824c-422bee0217ae

I wasnt able to get the suggested Powershell script to work
#Checking against a specific Site Collection and it's subsites
$WebScopedFeatureID="<FeatureGUID>";
Get-SPSite "<SiteCollectionUrl>"|Get-SPWeb -limit ALL|%{
$FeatureExists = Get-SPFeature -Identity $WebScopedFeatureID -Web $_;
if($FeatureExists){
Write-Host $_.Url;
}
}

Also, I've tried FeatureAdmin from Codeplex and when I activate the feature it shows up in the list, I can then tell it to remove it but all that does is deactivate it... the blasted thing still shows up in the list.  

Help ????
