    Try going to the game's home folder and look for an uninstall entry there.
    If perchance it was written to not use the registry, there may not be
    anything to do but delete certain folders: Check the gam'e documentation for
    ways to uninstall it.

    you might try uninstalling
    it via safe mode.

    if all else fails, simply
    delete the parent folder
    and run a registry cleaner
    called eusing.

    it will reconcile the registry
    keys to the file system and
    any remaining keys/orphans
    will be removed.

    the above manual steps will
    complete the removal of that
    program.

    If no uninstaller is available at the game vendors web site for it, use
    this program.
