removing an application

I have always assumed that when one used Synaptic to totally remove an
application that is what happened. So, I opened Synaptic, searched for
ufraw found two applications and totally removed them. Then, to make
sure there were no files remaining I used search for files and
immediately found 47 files all with ufraw in them. Could someone please
explain to me what is going on and tell me how I can best remove all the
files connected with ufraw.

I need to do this because I am trying to find out why the ufraw I have
is not doing what it is supposed to do and it has been suggested that
perhaps there are residues of an old version which are interfering with
the version I now have. So, I thought that if I removed all the files
connected with ufraw and then reinstalled the new version it might solve
the problem.
