Attempting to remove this from one of my computers but the Change/Remove button in Add remove programmes does nothing. I've also tried the uninstall option in the start menu with the same result. Does this mean that it cannot be removed or is there another solution?

You could reinstall it over the top of itself to regenerate the uninstall logs then uninstall or go through the install log manually and delete the files then use tweakui to remove the entry from the add/remove list.

Thanks guys, will have another go today.
Synak: The files.log and installation.log were not there.
I've ended up having to do a manual delete of all the files and deleted all references in the registry.
