Can't uninstall app in Windows because it's looking for the original msi file

I am trying to uninstall an application from the add/remove applications applet. However the uninstaller is looking for the original msi installer from my temp folder.

"I would suggest to :

Try John's idea of using Revo Uninstaller. Only if it doesn't work, continue.
Delete manually anything you know belongs to the application, including Start menu entries and its installation directory.
Clean the registry using, for example, CCleaner.
Use Microsoft's installer cleaner tool to erase all traces of the installation."
