It's because Eclipse isn't installed software in the formal, Windows sense.
Look for an installation subdirectory, likely named eclipse. Under that
subdirectory, if you see files like eclipse.ini, icon.xpm and
subdirectories like plugins and dropins, remove the subdirectory parent
(the one named eclipse).
That will remove your installation except for anything you've set up
yourself (like workspaces, projects, etc.).
Hope this helps.
