Default How to remove a program that doesn't show up in Add/Remove Programs?

I don't recall a specific example, but I DO remember deleting an icon on my desktop, then getting that link that says "This will not remove the program, just the icon, go HERE to add/remove programs to remove the program." and then the program was NOT on the list!!

There is a program called 'The uninstaller' it finds programs for you to uninstall even if they are not in add/remove programs. Go to http://www.downloads.com - That is where I found it.

It is quite possible that the icon name is differnt from the entry in add/remove programs.
Other wise u need to remove entries from registry and files manually.
