Look in /Library/Reciepts and see if there is a reciept there for it. If so, delete it and try again.

Hotspot Shield is one of the most difficult programs to uninstall since it scatters files all over the place.... Do some Googling and find out how others have dealt with it. The Apple forums have several good threads which should help.

In the meantime, use Spotlight or and other search tool you may have to find out where the files are located at.
