What program is it?  Some programs install with dependencies (one drive), that will cause the same error.

Not all programs uninstall correctly or completely...

I would contact the vendor and ask for assistance with what it might be looking for to determine it is still installed...
This might be Registry entries, or files that were not properly deleted...

If this does not help, you might consider a 3rd party solution like Revo (free trial available):

or Glary Uninstaller:

How did you uninstall the program? Was it a trial version of a program? Very often trial versions will prevent you from reinstalling the program after it was uninstalled, as that would allow you to bypass restrictions you get by using trial versions. If that is the case no one here will be able to help, of course, as that would be helping you violate licensing requirements.

Do you think the issue maybe because the computer joins a domain which has other computers on that domain that have this software installed?
n2fcCommented:
No... so long as you have administrative rights to install & uninstall software, being in a domain is not an issue...

Have you tried any of my suggestions yet?
nobusCommented:
if the above are no help - do a system restore to before you uninstalled the program
then install REVO uninstaller (as suggested by n2fc), and use it to uninstall your program

http://www.revouninstaller.com/ did the job. I took me a wile to figure out how the program I wanted to uninstall named itself, but after I got the name revouninstaller detected all leftovers and removed it so I could install the new version.
PS I think http://www.glarysoft.com/absolute-uninstaller/ it not at all a comparison to revouninstaller, revouninstaller is "much" more powerfull. Thank you for your help, and introducing me to such a powerful tool.
