Make sure that the procedure of the software you're trying to uninstall is not running, right-click the taskbar and select the "Start Task Manager" option, go to the "Processes" tab and look for the process of the software (To make sure it's the right one, look in the last column to see the Description of the process). Right-click the process and select the "End Process Tree" option and then try uninstalling it. If it doesn't work or the process doesn't show up, try a third-party software to uninstall the software, such as CCleaner, and try it from there. If the problem persists,try restoring your machine to a date previous to the installation of the software. If you cannot do this or there's no restoration point, try by permanently eliminating the folder where the software is installed on. It might still show up in the installed software, but you've already eliminated it from the computer.
