Depends on the software you're uninstalling.

 

Some components may be running and not able to be removed until a reboot is done.

What exactly is this program you are trying to uninstall?

 

How are you attempting to uninstall this program, under Programs and Features in the Control Panel?

 

If this program isn't being seen in Programs and Features it may be a portable program which doesn't get installed.  If this is the case you need to type the name of this program in the search box in the start menu to find it and then delete it.

Hey everyone thanks for the replies,and sorry i didn't mention my OS.
My OS is win7 professional,and as for the software it's Autodesk Autocad Architecture.It's not the only software that seams to be having that problem,i have tried with different software installed in my computer,and my computer still keeps demanding for a restart,after which it still continues,if you try to install or uninstall any software.
Thanks again,
E.A.

Does this change if you boot to Safe Mode?

 

If you look in the Task Manger do you see any apps running that shouldn't be?

I did boot the laptop in safe mode but when i did look at the task manager,i couldn't understand which of the running pgms or processes was actually causing the system to behave strangely.
Thanks,
E.A.

I posted two separate questions.  Please answer them each.

This might be easier than using Task Manager.

 

Download and run Sysinternals' Process Explorer.

Also, enable the VirusTotal check in Process Explorer by clicking on Options > VirusTotal.com > Check VirusTotal.com
