If you can find the actual file which starts the uninstaller for that program (it will be in the program's installation folder, and will be called UNWISE.EXE or UNINSTAL.EXE or something like that), right-click it and choose "Run as administrator"

Yes, pip22 is right, find the uninstall program, run as administrator.

There is a problem with being on an administrator's account. Any malware or virus can easily be installed. Now, we can't say what is going on.

Most of the free stuff is crap. Stick with softpedia.

Consider a reload of the OS to OEM state. It will fix this issue.
