    Add/Remove Program

    I've been trying to remove ErrorSmart from my computer. It's not the complete
    program, just a scan so it does not offer its own uninstall option.

    Windows said it was preparing to uninstall then I get the message:

    The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation.
    Then, You do not have sufficient access to uninstall ErrorSmart. Please
    contact your system administrator.

    Last time I checked, I was the system administrator of my laptop. I'm the
    one that downloaded it, so how do I remove it?
