Hello coxmaster,

If the uninstall program won't work, try it the old fashioned way:

Delete an Entry from the Uninstall List
  • Open HiJackThis
  • Click on the "Config..." button on the bottom right
  • Click on the tab "Misc Tools"
  • Click on the Box that says "Uninstall Manager"
  • Click on star wars empire at war?
  • Click on Delete this entry
  • Click "Yes"
Then just delete the corresponding C:\Program Files\star wars empire at war? folder where the demo is located on your hard drive.

Some of those uninstall programs really do make you wonder these days.. It's interesting that this is usually the case with the demo/trial products.
