vb.net deployment uninstall Perform operation BEFORE uninstall?

I have a vb.net deployment project. The program that gets installed can
create custom named files. I don't see any way in the deployment project
options to remove files that were not installed in the first place.

I wrote a program to accomplish that (cleanup program) but how can I get
to execute BEFORE the uninstall removes files? I can add it to custom
actions - uninstall but this only allows things after the uninstall is
through and by that time it has deleted the cleanup program. How can I
delete custom files during an uninstall?
