I don't know what to tell you, but you might want to ask a mod to make your thread title a little more specific. It's more likely to attract the attention of someone who can help you.

Ive uninstalled gator alot of times from our users computers at work

Im pretty sure it makes an entry either in add/remove programs

or that it comes with its own uninstall file

have you rebooted the computer since it was installed?
