    Unable to uninstall programs

    I was trying to uninstall utorrent from "Programmes and Features" but the error that I received is "You do not have sufficient access to uninstall utorrent. Please contact your system administrator".
    I tried uninstalling the program from "regedit" but I could not find my utorrent file there to uninstall it.
    Please help me uninstall it.

    Well I assume you are an administrator.

    Are you able to do other administrative tasks, like create a new user and assign them to admin group?

    Not sure what AV your are running, Have you tried Malwarebytes from Malwarebytes.com?

    Hi, try this:
    You do not have sufficient access to uninstall - error - SOLVED - wintips.org - Windows Tips & How-tos

    (Geek uninstaller is a reliable free program which I've used for a long time. If you prefer, you could try Revo Uninstaller).

    Note: searching for the error message which you've helpfully posted gives a good number of results; not all of them appear to be successful, but you may find more to help if needed.

Will programs uninstall properly with Win10?
I've been wondering, why when a program is uninstalled does it not uninstall every last bit of it? Will Windows 10 do a better job, or is it not as simple as that?
