Default DraftSight won't uninstall

My Draftsight free CAD program "went south". I couldn't pull up my drawings or open the program. In frustration I attempted to delete the program and reinstall it. I went through the normal Control Panel procedures to uninstall. Apparently there are still parts of the program on my hard drive ... preventing me from reinstalling.
Searching the net, I see this is not uncommon and there are many fixes available. I've tried a few of the free ones only to be ultimately led to a "buy our fix" site.
1) Has anyone any experience with this problem and did you solve it?
2) Can anyone recommend a similar free program>
3) Anyone using the Draftsight Professional.? ($150 a year)

Download and install revo (free version). Use it to uninstall Draftsight.

For what its worth, though I'm a Linux user, Qcad is what I use ! It is available for all platforms inc Windows.

I hope that you placed your drawings in a separate backed up folder.
