deleting ACT 2006 from startup menu

I tried to reinstall ACT! 2006 on my computer after a total reformat of windows.  Now I can't get the program to take and it won't delete from my startup menu?  Can anyone tell me how to get this off my computer so I can try another clean install?

 

Thanks

Tom

Re: deleting ACT 2006 from startup menu

This is a procedure I wrote to get the most clean install possible:
Uninstall any version of ACT! from Windows Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs
Use the Uninstaller.exe from the ACT! KB 19338 (the exe, not the manual uninstall)
Uninstall .Net Framework (all versions)

Perform a Selective restart with MSCONFIG as per ACT! KB 14499
Install .Net 1.1 Framework from MS web site
Install ACT! full install
Install ACT!  patch and hotfix if the previous install was the previous build

You can download the current patch from http://www.act.com/support/updates/index.cfm
Restore from Selective Startup Mode with MSCONFIG
Reboot

Thanks Does any of the SQL files need to be deleted or should this take care of it?
