Hi guys, Application not removing from Add/remove Program. when trying to uninstall (Lightscribe application) am getting  prompt like "You do not have sufficient privileges to complete this installation for all users of the machine. Log on as an administrator and then retry this installattion".

1) Am uninstall this application in  Admin mode only

2)I checked application properties, there i noticed its Attributes to Read only. I tried to change it but no use and in security tab i gave full controls for both user and admin even in that case also there is no use .


Can any 1 suggest me how handle that application ??
