You uninstall a program first, then restart your computer, then delete its leftover folders - if they're still there.

Never ever delete a program's folders first before uninstalling it. The uninstall will fail and will likely throw up an error message.

Oh, but I realized this AFTER I tuneup shredded the program files and data... then I was like... oh shoot. Then I just said what the hell and ran the uninstaller. No errors everything seems fine... but... is it?

So you're asking how you should proceed after you're already done? Too late now. No, you should never delete all the files and folders for a program first before trying to uninstall it. It obviously won't work because none of the uninstall information is there.
