Most of the time ...

it helps to reinstall the program you want to uninstall. The act of reinstalling fixes all those little errors which make you can't uninstall them.

If you can't uninstall it immediately after a succesful install, it's time to contact the maker on how to do it. They might have it on the FAQ on their site, or they might have support by telephone or email.

Hope this helps.

How do I uninstall Panda Titanium?
To remove Titanium from your computer, go to Start, Control Panel, and open Add/Remove Programs. Locate Panda on the list and highlight it, then click on the 'remove' button. Follow the on-screen instructions to completely remove Panda from your computer.
If you get any error messages or problems, follow the additional steps below to ensure that Panda Titanium is complete removed from your computer:
Make sure that there are no Panda Services running in the Services section in the Control Panel. Ensure they are stopped and set to disabled.
Then open the Registry from Start, Run, write 'REGEDIT', and click on 'ok'. Highlight 'My Computer' at the top of the list, then go to 'Edit' and 'Find'. Type 'panda' into the box and then click on 'Find Next'. This will search the Registry for panda files. When it brings up a folder or file, press 'delete' or right-click on the highlighted file/folder and select 'delete' from the menu to remove it. Click 'ok' to confirm that you want to delete the folder/key. Then press 'F3' to search again and find the next Panda entry.
Continue to search and delete Panda entries in the Registry until no more entries are found. Then close the Registry and restart the computer.
Once this operation has been carried out, make sure that the Panda Software folder in
C:\Program Files has been deleted. If it hasn't, delete it now. You should also delete the following files Windows \system: PAV.SIG, APVXD.VXD, APVXDUT.VXD, PANDA.CHP.
By carrying out these operations, Panda Antivirus Titanium will be uninstalled.

HOpe this helps.
