Microsoft Internet Explorer/program uninstall

Question
Recently I downloaded a program from a company called Forex Metatrader 4 . I realized fairly after downloading that they weren't offering the services I was looking for . Now I want to uninstall this program but when I go into Control Panel I keep getting the same message saying i don't have sufficient access and to contact system administrator . I sent a request to Forex support but their answer was generic and useless . So now I am stuck . As far as I know , I am or my laptop is the system administrator. Any suggestions as to how to uninstall this program . I am on a PC laptop running Windows 7 fully updated .

Answer
Hi Brian,

I would suggest the following workaround in order to uninstall this program but before you try these steps, please ensure that your account under control panel>User accounts shows you as an administrator.

-Open command prompt in administrator mode by right-clicking and choosing “Run as administrator”
Then in command prompt type as

net user administrator /active:yes  and press <enter>

This will enable the default Admin account.  You need to log off from your profile and  login to Administrator account without any password and Use this account to remove the program.

TO disable this account, the command would be

net user administrator /active:no (user this command when you log in back again from your profile)

In case you have any questions, please let me know.

Thanks,
