Can you perform a regedit and get rid of all traces - then do a re-install?
I just had to do that with an app yesterday.

you can try using the windows cleanup tool which is very useful for getting rid of pesky programs. also you can try reinstalling and uninstalling

Well, my first search criteria would be "power director"... moving on to search for "name of company"
carefully removing all the keys found... with the exception of those I am unsure of
