    Do a search for the name of the file, and see if it has an uninstallation, if not then just delete it and delete the recycle bin.

    You can also reinstall the app.....that should return anything that's missing.

    If you manually delete the folder from Program Files, their might be other files in other folders associated with it. Also....use a good registry cleaner like RegSeeker or CCleaner to help with the leftover reg entries.

    Just deleting the files/folders will leave entries behind in your System Registry.

    Try using CCleaner. It has an uninstall function. Or use it to clean up the entries left behind if you go the manual route.

    Find it here: http://www.ccleaner.com/

    I would just go manual. Then use Regedit to clean up any debris. If you are uncomfortable with that, use Ccleaner after deleting the files/folders.
