To uninstall it, you first have to disable it(TURN ITOFF). It has NOTHING to
do with the UAC. It is quite simple, you can not uninstall something that is
still is running, which an anti-virus always is. Right-click on the icon,
there should be an option there to disable it Turn it off, then uninstall it.
