there are several option:
go to http://www.tune-up.com/and download tuneup utilities (trial for 15 days), use their uninstaller to remove it.
another option is your unistaller - http://www.ursoftware.com/ which do the same function.

couldn't install http://www.tune-up.com/ it gave me the "another installation is currently in progress," message
the other one i installed successfully
but it does the same as i tried to remove fences manually trough the control panel
its running for 30 min now without doing anything (it probably run the windows program)...i will give it another 30 min

Boot into safe mode.  Use system restore to restore your system to an earlier point (before you tried to uninstall fences).

If you don't have a restore point to go to, install the uninstaller program (the program that you could not install) from safe mode.
