Hi, I don't know much about computers so please bear with me.

I've installed a cookie/files cleanup (Evidence Eliminator), which is actually a 30 day trial program. Not even a day past, I decided to uninstall it. Unfortunately, I experienced problem uninstalling it with my pc's Add/Remove Program, so crazy to say I tried to remove them manually.
Now, I've noticed that "Evidence Eliminator" items still appear on context menu list when I right-click one of the items in Start Menu or any one of the files in My Documents and Desktop Icons. So, how can I delete and stop all these items (Evidence Eliminator Safe Delete, Evid. Elim. Quick Mode, Evid. Elim. Safe Start, etc.) to appear on right-clikck (context menu) list?

Someone told me about going to Registry Editor, but did not find them. Then, I also tried to run window thorough search, and nothing found either.

Its kind of frustraing doing research about this problem and it always takes me to a dead end. I hope I expressed my problem with my computer clearly and also hope to hear from you guys, soon.

PLEASE HELP..I NEED YOUR EXPERTISE!
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!!!

Find Search assistant (the one with the yellow dog) and click "All files and folders". Right click every line it shows and choose delete. Be careful. After deleting a folder, some extra lines may show up on the Search assistant GUI. Do not delete those. Instead: run a second search to make sure.

If some files or folders won't delete do it again in safe mode. That should do it.

Can't find the actual files but "Evidence Eliminator" still appears as a context menu item. Thanks for your advice anyway..
