I would suggest to approach this issue from an OS standpoint:
Stop the processes accessing the folder where the clients are installed before uninstalling them.
Thank you for your response, unfortunately it does not.
You can also use File unlocker tool to check is there any process using the client files. If yes you can unlock the same and try uninstalling.
Before that you can also try restarting the machine where Informatica clients are installed.
So what I'm reading from these responses is there's no logging for the uninstaller?

The installation guide indicates that, after completing the "uninstall" process, you need to remove manually - among other leftovers - a couple of log files. Have you checked whether they contain messages about the removal process?
Apart from that, the Informatica clients' installer is built using InstallAnywhere (i.e. IA). So, if you need to troubleshoot the install/uninstall process, you may want to play wiht the IA's runtime debug options (i.e. LAX). There is an "uninstaller.lax" file under the "Uninstaller_Client" folder.
If any of the previous comments helped you uninstall the clients, please mark them as helpful/solution.
Edited the lax.stderr.redirect and lax.stdout.redirect attributes in the .lax file.
The log output indicates lots of calls to files in C:\Informatica\10.1.1\Uninstaller_Client\properties\, but that folder does not exist
