Did you install it before? What program? Old version of the program? Where did you install Windows (C partition or somewhere else)?

Slide over to MajorGeeks.com and download TweakNow (http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4134.html).

Run it. Tell it to delete everything that it finds in the Safe part. Anything it says it is unsure of, look over. If it belonged to something that you uninstalled, delete it.

See if that helps.
