Give these a try: Windows Installer Cleanup

Revo Uninstaller - Revo

After using the aforementioned utilities manually delete any left over folders containing the programs you intend to remove.

Download Cleanup & CCleaner from my sig.

Install/Run both programs, including the Registry cleaner in CCleaner.

Next, in CCleaner click Tools >> Startup >> remove the program your refering to.

A registry cleaner will not increase your system's speed or performance, and has the potential to break your registry to the point that your PC is no longer bootable. We strongly advise that people stay away from any of the registry cleaners out there. Go HERE to get more information about why registry cleaners aren't needed.


Thanks to Sari for the explanation

Simply unzip Autoruns.zip file, and double click on autoruns.exe file to run the program.
Click Options, then Hide Microsoft Entries.
Click File, then Refresh.
Go File>Export As, and save AutoRuns.txt file to know location.
Attach AutoRuns.txt file to your next reply.
