Normally the reason a program is not listed in the Windows Add/Remove List is due to the fact that the installed did not put a link to it there, or it did not modify your registry This means that you dont need to worry about using add/remove for this program, you can either use its uninstaller that it came with or if it does not have one, browse to wherever you installed the program and right click the folder and delete it.
