I had installed a game on Windows 7 but have found I do not like it. I have tried to uninstall the game using the uninstall on the games cd, and the windows add/remove option. Both give me the same error, that I can not uninstall because "The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation." My account is an administrator account, and I have not had any other issues with installing or uninstalling programs. Can someone help me?

Peace out!
Paula

You may also try to uninstall this using "Program and Features" in Control Panel or run Uninstaller with administrator privileges (Right click on the program .exe file and click on Run as administrator).
