If you ask me, you installed it the wrong way to start with, using the
installer, which sucks.
Never install PHP like that, you won't be able to load any dlls by
uncommenting them in php.ini.
DO yourself a favor, and install PHP by hand next time.

As for the solution? I don't know. I am used to having lots of buggy
uninstalls in all my Windoze machines.
Ask Balmer. ;-)

Wrong - I've installed it using the installer on Windows and can load
DLL's just fine. All I do is uncomment them. But I do agree the
installer is not the best.

The biggest problem is not all DLL's are set with the installed.

Did you stop Apache before trying to uninstall it? You also may have to
manually change the httpd.conf file when uninstalling.
