    Hello, I want to uninstall a program from Cyberlink. It is liisted in
    Programs and Features as PowerDVD. When i select Uninstall I first get the
    User Control Permission box and approve of it. Then there is a small box that
    says somethng aobut installing hte installer for PowerDVD 8. Then after about
    a minute that disappears and the Programs and Features apge has no notices on
    it. Then a box about 1 1/2 X 2 inches appears with the word Error in the
    upper left border. Below that, in the box, is a red circle with a white X
    through it. Next to that are the words "Can't Load SKUtil.dll (sic). tthere
    is OK below that and when it is clicked or time passes without actions hte
    box vanishes and the uninstall process terminates. What can I do to get
    around this roadblock? If I try to remove it from C: in computer I get a
    notice that I'll have to have permission. I am already the only administrator
    on the system, so how do I give myself elevated authority?

    Try running Uninstall a Program elevated.

    Click Start and type "appwiz.cpl" in Start/Search but do not hit Enter. You
    will see the icon at the top of the menu. Right click on it and choose Run
    As Administrator. Try uninstalling PowerDVD.
