Unable to uninstall a game (or three)

Running Windows XP. I cannot uninstall Delta Force Black Hawk Down. When I try to (either from All Programs or Add Or Remove Programs), with no other applications running, I get an error message

Error Code: -5006 : 0x80070002

Any idea how I can uninstall this game?

Also, I have a couple of unwanted entries on my Add Or Remove Programs list. They're both left-overs from old games. When I try to remove them one of them does nothing, and the other one informs me that the file doesn't exist or is not a valid uninstallation log file. Any idea how I can get rid of those two?

Cheers.
