Program files in C drive

A couple of weeks ago I was having trouble with pre-installed Pinnacle Instant DVD/CD, so removed it. Since then that particular problem was solved. I removed it using Add/remove as it did not have its own uninstallation tool. Yesterday I noticed that when I ran an AVG scan I saw Pinnacle Instant DVD/CD in the program files. Being a computer novice could some tell me why software and applications have program files seperate from the files I removed using add/remove and in addition how do I know which ones I can delete as they are not all clearly marked. I addition to Pinnacle I've noticed other program files that came pre-installed like Tiscali Internet which I don't use. Can I just delete them or should I leave alone?

It will have left Registry entry's when you uninstalled it also check Program Files for a Folder and remove it

Using add/remove programs, you HAVE deleted the program from your disk. Sometimes uninstallers leave behind some parts of it such as folders and the odd piece of program. You can delete the pinnacle folder and everything inside it without worry....TT
