I am hoping someone can help me. I downloaded two programs for a online college algebra course. I cannot delete the program files, when I try the uninstall/change button I receive this message...

"The following file does not exist or is not a valid installation log" is there anything I can do to get rid of these programs or whatever is left of the programs? :huh: Thanks for any help and advice.

You are uninstalling them from Control Panel.
Some programs can only be uninstalled from their uninstall shortcuts in Start Menu (yes bad programming)

Click on Start Menu, select All Programs, look for the program you installed, click on its folder. You should be able to see the Uninstall icon there.

Try Revo in installer - download & save to desktop; RIGHT-click on Revo icon, select "Run as Admin"

Revo --> http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninst...e_download.html
