Default Help with registry cleanup Win7 Blufftitler

I need help totally removing a copy of Blufftitler. I 'removed' the older version using the control panel 'modify or remove' options and it seemed to work. I downloaded the new version from the Bufftitler website and there was no installation process in the zip package... which I thought was strange. I simply unzipped it all into the Blufftitler folder which was still there. It worked for a while... but I could not make any file associations. That was only the beginning. Now projects I've been working on are missing and parts of the program itself are missing.
I've looked on the Internet for help... I really don't trust anything anymore when it comes to what appears to be registry problems.
I've run all my malware and virus programs against this and it has found nothing. Seems that the only thing that is affected is Blufftitler. and yes, I own a licensed 'Pro' copy.
Anyone know of a trusted program that will help?

Hit the start button, then type regedit

open it by clicking the .exe, then hit control + F and type in 'Blufftitler', then delete everything that pops up, keep hitting find next until you get to the end.

If that makes you nervous, back up your computer first and set a restore point.

If you are just looking to uninstall that program along with it's registry associations, I use this.

http://www.iobit.com/advanceduninstaller.html

free, also comes as part of a larger cleanup program suite (advanced system care)
uninstall the program in question then run the advanced /powerful scan to get rid of the "loose ends"

if you still have other issues, jump to one of the antivirus threads or post in here again

Thanks guys for the rapid response.

zero- I downloaded iobit and ran it, but it couldn't find Blufftitler. I'm guessing that the original uninstall attempt got enough to where iobit couldn't find it.
I did see an uninstalled two other programs that I had 'uninstalled' before. iobit did a great job.

Dad- I went into regedit and deleted everything that came up related to Blufftitler. iobit had already made a restore point.

The bottom line... it used to take about 5 minutes for my system to boot up. Now it takes less than a minute! thanks guys!

Next, I'm going to contact Blufftitler support and ask about the so-called 'install' program.

Thanks again!

Try CCleaner.
It contains a safe registry cleaner as well in that it backs it up first.
Other wise Google uninstall whatever it is.

Thank you everyone who posted. I finally got things to work normally. This little section of LiveLeak is definitely the best source for information of this sort... on the entire Internet. I can't tell you how many times I've gone to sites out there and downloaded programs that were absolute crap; added toolbars and other 'helpers' that were no more than viruses.
Thank you so much!
