Ugh, this is one of those cases where a little bit of install data gets stuck in the system registry. It's easy enough to remove if you know what you're doing but if you don't and you goof up it can cause a lot of unpleasantness. Unfortunately I do not know of an easy way to resolve this that doesn't involve manually digging into the registry.

You can try running CCleaner and hope that it finds the dangling uninstall information. If that doesn't work, hopefully someone else will be able to provide solution.
