If a program is still displayed in the “Add or Remove Programs Tool” after removal open the registry:

  1. Windows Key + R type regedit then press Enter
  2. Open the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall and make a backup prior to do any changes
  3. Find the program that you wish to remove from the list (DisplayName key represents the name that is displayed on the tool)
  4. To remove it right click the node and then click delete
