    Unable to remove program from Windows 7

    I have been trying to uninstall a program from the system which runs in Windows 7. I am always receiving a message that it requires permission from administrator. How can uninstall the program in such a situation?

    Dear Friend!!
    If you are unable to uninstall the program as user,you can try this-
    Go to the root directory where that programme is installed,then there you could see an uninstall button,right click there and click-run as admin.
    you then definitely uninstall that app easily.

    this problem mostly arises when you log in with a user account or you don't have permissions from the admin to do so... 1) make sure that you login with a admin account.
    2) sometime you cant uninstall an program from the control panel.. this was mostly because of corrupt program data or corrupt registry values..
    to uninstall such program i recommend you that if you have the setup of the same program then open setup and install the program again now try to uninstall it from the control panel.
    second option is to go to the drive where you installed that program usually C:/ drive then Program files/ and then scroll down to select the folder that contain that program.
    now open it and then search for the uninstall file. if by the way the uninstall file is missing then juz delete the whole folder and restart your pc..

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem it is:-

    If your computer was not allowing to delete any program from Windows 7.
    It may be the file required by your computer for the smooth running.

    If it was not a useful program and it is not allowing to delete then you do this.

    Firstly go to the place where you have installed the program.

    Then you navigate to that program.

    There you can see the 'Uninstall' button.

    By clicking on the program will be deleted.

    Or
    If it also don't work then download a software 'File Shredder'.

    By installing it you can delete the files permanently.

    Have a nice day............
