you could use parted magic(?) to access the partition from within linux. i've used DSL linux to access/modify NTFS volumes in the past. To my knowledge, DOS based NTFS drivers are hit and miss, but you could try using NTFS4DOS (read/write ability).

However, even if you were to delete the suspect files/directories, the program has most likely latched to the windows registry hive and/or installed additional files within the windows system folder that you may not be aware of (i.e. simply deleting the files itself may not be sufficient to entirely remove a program).
