Desktop Software 4.2.2 won't uninstall

Please help ... I've been trying to uninstall Blackberry 4.2.2 and when I try through Add/Remove programs I get a notice :

"The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not available. Insert the "BlackBerry Desktop Software 4.2.2 disk and click OK"


The problem is that I have no idea where this disk is.  Is there any way to uninstall??  I am trying to update my software and can't without updating the desktop manager.
