Besides, you can detect and kill any VirtualDJ-associated process via Task Manager:
(2) Launch the uninstaller in installation folder
What if VirtualDJ doesn’t appear in the list of installed apps or there is no response when you click Uninstall option? That could happen when you have tried to remove VirtualDJ incompletely, or when some of the executive files are damaged or missing.
In that case, you can try to directly launch VirtualDJ’s built-in uninstaller, which is by default located in This PC > C: > Program Files. Once you open up the installation folder, you should be able to find a file named Uninst000.exe or Uninstall.exe. Try to open up the file, click Yes in UAC, and the VirtualDJ Setup wizard should show up.

If you think it troublesome to detect and remove VirtualDJ remnants in Registry, try to adopt the first automated option – using Bloatware Uninstaller – to save some troubles.
