      Two things to maybe check:

      1. If you had a gvim.bat, make sure that the uninstaller deleted it properly.
      2. Check your system registry at
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths
      and see if there is a key for gvim.exe. I've never figured out the logic of
      how it works, but programs can get added there and then accessed as if they
      were in your path.
