I have had the same problem uninstalling some programs. To completely
uninstall McAfee Security Center, Norton SystemWorks, or MusicMatch Jukebox
you have to try using Vista to uninstall and then use an uninstall tool you
download from the software maker's website to completely uninstall. Even
then, sometimes you have to go through your files and registry and delete
references to parts of the uninstalled software that remain.
