Adware

My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit, and I had previously had installed the Torch web browser, but since deleted it as the Technician who cleaned my infected pc said that it had piggy backed some malwares.
While analyzing my pc, I found some icons like : Free Music, and the icon points to : C:\Users\Jothy\AppData\Local\Torch\Application\torch.exe http://music.torchbrowser.com,
There is also another called Free Games but pointing to games.torchbrowser.com.  These programs do not show up in the Control panel or under Revo uninstaller.  
how do I remove these possible Trojans completely from my pc including the registry.  Thank u.

I suggest you run Malwarebytes again. The issue with registry removal is that there may be multiple entries. Malwarebytes is good at this.
