Autocad 2012 already installed error

Greetings guys,

 

yesterday I installed both AutoCad 2012 and AutoCad 2012 Architecture on my windows 7 32 bit OS.

 

Now the thing is I wanted both to be uninstalled because I messed up something. So what I did is I didnt, take the usual delete program route, i just  manually went and cleaned the program files folder and in the >Control Panel>Uninstall a program .

 

So this resulted in the problem im having at the moment. Once I want to install both programs, it tells me that they are already installed.

 

This tells me theres still files roaming on my computer!

 

Could anyone give me a detailed list to go in and which files I have to delete so I can perform a clean install on both Acad 2012 and Acad 2012 Architecture.

 

 

 

Thanks in advance

Alrighty,

 

I would love to thank you guys for replying! But none of the suggestions mentioned helped me to be honest.
What I did, was a clean and fresh system restore to a date before I installed the AutoCad applications.

 

This worked like a charm and I would suggest this to everyone encountering the same problem like mine.

 

 

SOLVED !
