Can't Uninstall GlobalProtect

After a drive failure I cannot uninstall goblaprotect. The failed drive was only used for my applications. So the install directory was lost but my main windows drive is intact so GP is still registered as an application.  I have the install msi for GP 5.00 but it cannot repair or remove the existing package.

Is there any way other than editing the registry to get rid of this entry?

If the registry is the only option what Key should I search for?
