    Can't uninstall program

    Trying to clean up a few things on my Win7 Pro 32 bit system
    When I try to uninstall LightScribe (which I have never used)I get this message:

    I have only one user account on the computer and it is an admin account.
    Why am I getting this message and how do I uninstall the program?

    Did you already try right-clicking, run as administrator, on the install EXE?

    Not sure I understand what you are saying. I think this was on the computer when I got it, so I did not install it.

    The Administrator account and accounts with Administrative privileges are subtly different.

    Either log on as Administrator to carry out the uninstall or create a shortcut to C:\Windows\System32\appwiz.cpl then right-click on the shortcut and select Run as administrator.

    Alternatively, use something like MyUninstaller (freeware, portable, i.e. just needs to be un-zipped, not installed) or Revo Uninstaller and run either of them as Administrator (i.e. right-click on the shortcut and select Run as administrator).

    Hope this helps...

    After trying several times to go to Properties, Securities, and permissions and still coming up with the same results I did try MyUninstaller. That solved the problem. Thank you.
