I know that when I uninstall something it doesn’t completely uninstall. How do I remove all of the things I’m uninstalling from all parts of my computer?
Revo Uninstaller is good, but I prefer ZSoft Uninstaller which has a simpler interface and is, to my mind, much more focused on that particular task.
Agreed, Revo Uninstaller is one of the best utilities out there for clean removals.
Revo Unistaller, like Tina suggested is a great option. If you are trying to uninstall a Windows program, Windows has its own removal utility at:
Or you can make a backup of your computer, install the program, then install the backup again? But that would probably take a while.

Stefan wrote a very good article that should answer your question:
How To Uninstall Applications Efficiently And Remove Obsolete Files
In short, rather than using the respective program's uninstall option or going through add/remove programs in Windows, you should use an external application to uninstall applications. Stefan recommends Piriform CCleaner and Revo Uninstaller.
I second Revo Uninstaller, been using it for a while now and pretty happy with it.
