I was having trouble reinstalling a game recently and since I couldn't find all of it's data in the registry I just used this: Revo Uninstaller. It works great. I was able to reinstall my game after I ran this.

With the CD in the drive, right click it, select Explore or Open, and then search for the install exe.
