    Hi, no, unlikely.

    Well, that answers your question....

    So..I guess you actually want more. it's probably a more complex program, so will have
    - folder(s) in %userprofile%
    - some programs install software drivers (maybe that doesn't)
    - start menu entries
    - registry entries (which Ccleaner is most likely to have missed.

    What can you do?

    Reinstall it in exactly the same location. Ideally monitor the installation with Revo Uninstaller Pro (or a similar free prog- if you can find one). Then uninstall t using Revo... if the program is listed it can be uninstalled, then Revo (free) can scan for leftovers.

    If you use Revo Pro, it will be a monitored program, and you can uninstall it as such.

    Had you not deleted the program folder, you could probably have used Revo (free) to do a forced uninstall.

    Do you get an error message when you try to install it? What exactly happens?
