    Re: software uninstall

    If your domain account is in the local administrators group, you could try adding a second local administrator account (imagine you don't want to muck w/ administrator) or reset the password for Administrator then logon to that local admin account and try the uninstall from there.

    Just a thought. Do give attention to your company's IT policies before mucking w/ Administrator.
