Default Uninstalling Social Games

I found "Social Games" in my program list (Windows 7). I am not sure how this program was installed.
How do I uninstall this ? Its not listed as an installed program that could be removed from the Control
Panel. It has a group of on-line games in the folder ( Mafia Wars and other by Zynga).
Thanks.

Probably got installed with the Zynga toolbar. Check for that and remove that and see if it helps.

Thanks - I found the link buried in the App Data Folder and removed it. I also traced it to one of the Asus Utilities.
