Question How to manually uninstall software program?

I used Windows 'Add or Remove Program' to uninstall Veoh TV. This was successful but it left a Veoh TV Beta launch on my system which I could not uninstall. This also left the VeohTV icon on my screen.

I also tried using Revo uninstaller to remove this but was unsuccessful. This instructed me to manually uninstall C:\Program Files\Veoh Networks\Veoh\VeohClient.exe

Question: How to manually uninstall this file? I do not know how to use DOS

Highlight it with a left click, right click and hit delete.

I tried the right click to delete but it will not delete.

I have RegistryFix but this does not help. Is Move on Boot a registry cleaner?

No.
You select a file to delete on boot-up i.e. before it "is in use" & can't be then deleted.
