Default program uninstaller...?

anyone know of an program uninstaller...there's a program that i've uninstalled/removed from my phone, but there's still icons and other things sitting in some of the directories of my phone. i remember seeing something around here in the wizard or kaiser forum. i've searched for removal, remover and uninstall/uninstaller but i can't find a thing. even tried downloads.com since they have a lot of pocketpc apps.
thanx in advance

PS
those that are quick to jump the gun, "Tap Start > Settings > System tab > Remove Programs" is not removing the icon....

Why can't you manually delete these icons if they don't point to anything?

if there's a way to delete the icon from the programs menu, and start menu manually...do tell. otherwise, i think i'll just use that program. i know its out there, i used it on my 8125

program shortcuts in the start\programs menu are all from the windows folder:
\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

If the uninstaller doesn't remove the shortcut from that folder, you can delete it yourself.
