Trying To Remove Stubborn Vestiges of FSX

I have been trying to remove all vestiges of FSX from my system in order to reinstall it. I uninstalled it through Programs and Features. However, it still appears as a shortcut on my front screen. In addition, there appears to be some leftover software because FSX still spools up when I press RUN; and the ALT and VS indicators light up on my Saitek Pro Flight Multi Panel. The FSX box then promptly disappears and nothing else happens. The ALT and VS light indicators remain lit. I have Revo Uninstaller Pro on my system to uninstall software. However, I do not see anything there for FSX. How can I otherwise remove the remainder of any FSX software parts from my system?

Follow this.

Or use this.

There are hidden folders and the registry needs cleaning.
