    The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation

    I keep getting this message when attempting to uninstall Java v13. I am already the administrator. How do I get rid of this assinine message and uninstall my program?

    Clicking on the message box shows this message:

    Installed Updates

    You do not have sufficient access to uninstall Java(TM)6 Update 13.
    Please contact your system administrator.

    How do I contact myself?

    Thank you

    Thank you kc2311. I have tried everything to get rid of this message when I tried to install a Topaz program: “The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation”

    I turned off user account control and was able to install my program.

    I have Vista Home Premium 32.
