Had the same problem uninstalling samsung data migration software (after succesfully cloning my os to the new samsung ssd disk). It would not uninstall from windows - remove software. I grabbed the dvd with the original installation and started the setup again, it then asked if i wanted to uninstall and did so succesfully.

It does not uninstall Data Migration! Neither does the Add/Remove Program in the Windows Control Panel
