Completely delete a managed package

I downloaded a managed package last year, including 97 Apex Classes and a number of Apex Triggers, and the company recently went out of business. I'm not a developer and have had considerable trouble understanding how to use Eclipse and Force.com IDE to delete the Apex classes and triggers so that I may uninstall the package. Can someone point me in the direction of a comprehensive step-by-step to complete the delete and uninstall? I've found a number of articles to help with individual pieces of the process but I find myself stuck once I'm left to my own devices. I'm linking to a few of the articles I followed that didn't work. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

No need to delete the classes, just uninstall the package.

Hi Steven,
If it were that simple I wouldn't be asking on the developer forum. As mentioned I have a myriad apex classes and triggers that prevent uninstalling the package. Thanks.

I see, the image you shared certainly puts this in perspective.
This is the kind of thing where you might want to have a volunteer developer log in and figure out the right order to delete the classes and dependencies.
To me, it does not seem like the type of problem one can get direction on via a forum.

If you want to uninstall this package first you need to remove this package  fields from the other salesforce metadata ( like apex class , triggers ,formula etx ..)
