    program wont uninstall

    how do you delete a program that wont uninstall?
    normal uninstall just hangs, deleting the program folder and running ccleaner to clear the registry still has it showing up.

    Give this 3rd party uninstall program a try.
    It is called Revo Uninstaller.
    It has a free version. Install that and see if it can help you uninstall what you failed to do.
    Go to Revo Uninstaller Freeware section, and click the Free Download button.

    You could also try GeekUninstaller. It's free and it has got an option to force delete any installed app.
