Go to the game folder by browsing through C:, or if you can't find it, search for the name of the folder. The folder will be the name of the game, or the company who made it. When you find it, delete the folder(s).

If I do this it does delete the data, but the game is not removed from the add/remove programs list. is it in the registry and needs to be deleted? If so how do i do this?

Just try to uninstall it from the control panel. It will say there has been an error and asks you if you want to remove the game from the add/remove programs list.

Okay, now problem <_<. Just download TweakUI from Microsoft. It has the option to let you remove items from the add/remove programs list.
