uninstall COMPLETELY suggestions

Question

ok after 2 years of trying to get Corel Paintshop Pro 2018 to FINALLY uninstall when the computer said it wasn't even on there, I found a solution on their site to erase the hidden items that did NOT erase and would not uninstall. Roxio used to have a similar thing that would completely erase everything Roxio. Under PROGRAMS nothing titled Roxio shows BUT when I pull up menus and similar things Roxio Pro Creator 7 STILL shows up AND files were STILL listed. GONE NOW! FINALLY I CAN SAY 'THANKS COREL!"

Here's my question - when something "Roxio" does NOT show under PROGRAMS but is STILL there (obviously), does Roxio (or anyone else) have a program that COMPLETELY OBLITERATES anything Roxio WHEN IT DOES NOT SHOW UNDER PROGRAMS? I need to TOTALLY free this computer of all the bug STILL created by this program that NEVER worked. When it was uninstalled CORRECTLY, it STILL had the content files, program files, etc..which were erased BY CUSTOMER SERVICES ADVICE AND CONSOLTATION- BUT issues are STILL there because of hidden leftover files. 

The issue I'm facing is that the leftovers are creating HUGE problems with other programs like Adobe's WHOLE LIST of video/audio programs for one AND codec issues.

If anyone's got a solution or an idea, let me know. I'd really appreciate it - BUT do NOT suggest I reinstall it and uninstall. Have done that literally 100x's already WITH CUSTOMER SERVICE and it hasn't ever worked that way. btw - typical i7 megafast 8-core PC but works like a Commodore 64 with Roxio.

In paragraph one, you say " GONE NOW! FINALLY I CAN SAY 'THANKS COREL!"

In paragraph two, you say and want " does Roxio (or anyone else) have a program that COMPLETELY OBLITERATES anything Roxio WHEN IT DOES NOT SHOW UNDER PROGRAMS? I need to TOTALLY free this computer of all the bug STILL created by this program that NEVER worked."

What is it, gone or not?

I'm assuming you're asking what program I am having problems with trying to totally uninstall. Since this was originally asked under the forum topic Roxio Creator Pro 7, it has to do with Roxio Creator Pro 7. Just to refresh, I uninstalled (with customer service assistance), it does NOT show under installed programs BUT ALL the files that were installed are STILL there (videowave, MyDVD, ect...everything that comes with Creator Pro 7 - which is creating havoc because the program application is NOT installed or listed but all 20gbs of info IS still there. Have uninstalled, reinstalled NUMEROUS TIMES along WITH customer service. Their reply - I don't know what the problem is. NO VIRSUS, NO MALWARE OR SPYWARE. Logged as Admin - one person computer. Can't get any clearer than that. Just looked to see if anyone knows if there's still a program around that used to be around years ago that uninstalls everything Roxio. I believe it was called Roxizap or something like that (but that was years ago). Looking for something current and for Creator Pro 7 specifically. 

Just to clarify, the ONLY thing that completely erased from Roxio Creator Pro 7 was the Corel Paintshop Pro part, which was a WHOLE DIFFERENT CUSTOMER SERVICE other than Roxio.

Your talking Roxio 'zap' Roxio quit using it many many version ago!

Download Revo Uninstaller Free here.

Use moderate mode, read and understand what your doing before starting or you may end up in worse shape!

Or reformat your C Drive and reload your operating system and programs?
