Default Uninstalling problem

So I had 2 demos installed on my computer for a while:
Age of Empires III
Chessmaster 10th Edition

Now I got the full version of both games and decided I was going to uninstall the demos. I go to Control Panel and remove them, it says it was unistalled succesfully. I restart my computer and the games are still there. I tried to do this many times but is still there. Is there any way I can do this manually without leaving parts of the program on my computer?
Thanks!

wouldn't that leave traces in the registry and in the windows folder? Plus the program name will still be in the add/remove section

you can go in the registry and find them using find. Use words that pertain to the game but be careful and back it up first

I wouldnt recommend using any registry software except ccleaner. Make sure you back your registry up first then scan.
