Unable to uninstall MySQL Server 8.0 on Windows 10

Hi, I've been having trouble with setting up MySQL Server and MySQL Workbench so I tried to uninstall them through the MySQL Community Installer, it uninstalled the workbench with no issue but when it got to 50% of removing the SQL Server it fails, every single time, and no matter what I do I can't uninstall the server, I tried the windows uninstaller and it the software is still listed there, I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the community installer but I can't reconfigure the entire installation from scratch because the server is still installed according to it. If I try to modify the MySQL server and uninstall it from there it just tells me that the wizard ended prematurely. I tried deleting any and all installation files from MySQL manually, including the program data file, then try to uninstall the server.
It's still there, I cannot uninstall this no matter what I try, I'm completely lost and no amount of googling has helped me.
