Windows Cleanup Utility only works for MSI installers so it may work for some of them.

I prefer Revo uninstaller. Start with the moderate removal setting and move up to aggressive if you have issues. It tires to run the uninstaller if it is there, it clears the registry and the. Deletes any files. It lets you select everything you want to remove.

Just download the free version:
