You have not specified your OS...will assume it is Windows XP. Anyways, 2000/XP/2003 covered by this article.
Will not go furthur into details, just visit Add/Remove Programs tool displays installed programs incorrectly (link on the source below) and it will explain what happened and how to go about it.
Be sure to backup your registry before proceeding.Source(s): http://support.microsoft.com/kb/266668

First It's not your Computer not letting you remove those files and registry entry's. It's called windows.
If you want to remove something that is malicious, you'll need more than a uninstaller.
Another reason why Linux is the best OS now.
