Try Revo, it can uninstall 'most anything.

Does Revo work on windows 7? – iceman Nov 1 '09 at 10:59
probably, maybe – Phoshi Nov 1 '09 at 11:07

The document Installing MSC.ADAMS on Windows says:

  1. From the Start menu, point to MSC.Software, point to Programs, point to MSC.ADAMS 2003, and then select Uninstall ADAMS.
  2. Follow the instructions on your screen to uninstall the MSC.ADAMS products. Select the Next button to continue through the installation. The installation program asks you to choose the type of uninstall you want to perform. You can select:
    ■ Automatic - Removes all MSC.ADAMS product files. It does not remove any files that you created in the installation directory.
    ■ Custom - Lets you select the files that you want to delete.
  3. When the uninstall is complete, select Finish.

Does that work?

I'm using an older version actually : MD R2 Adams released 15 Nov 2006 – iceman Oct 31 '09 at 0:53
(1) If you still have the installation, re-install to fix the Add-remove programs info, then uninstall. (2) If you don't have it, you can manually delete the MSC directory and Start menu, then use regedit to hunt for all occurrences of (a) the MSC directory and (b) of MSC (if not too many of them), and (carefully) delete. I think the main or only one will be HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> MSC.Software. – harrymc Oct 31 '09 at 8:13
Any good registry cleaner which can remove it ? – iceman Nov 1 '09 at 11:27
Revo Uninstaller is the best : – harrymc Nov 1 '09 at 12:57
