Windows is not the 'mother of all' to be judged against. Windows needs
complex uninstall programs because of its heavily-plagued registry system,
which is the reason for its poor performance too.

Go to Home -> App -> Delete...
Remove the unwanted executable. It is usually quite clear which file this
should be, simply judging by the name. This will in most cases establish a
clean sweep because files are somehow interlinked and PRC's are quite
independent. The only application I can think of as an exception is AvantGo
where tiny data files need to be erased separately. They have the AvantGo
prefix though so it's all rather obvious.
Hope it helps,
