  • Hi,

    According to your description, I understand you want to uninstall some programs in your computer.

    Try taking the ownership of the C:\Program Files\ (the installation path of the program) and check if you can uninstall the program.

    Refer this Microsoft KB article to take the ownership of the folder.
