Deleting programs

By gambit48 ·
I am having trouble uninstalling pre-installed programs on my laptop. It's running Vista Home Premium. I am the only user listed with admin rights, but I still get messages stating that I am not the admin and cannot uninstall the programs. Is there a way to fix this? Or workaround? Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

When I was using Beta and RC1, I found a post which solved this problem.

Vista is not designed for you to run as an administrator.

Create a standard account and whenever UAC decides you need to be an administrator it will pop up the UAC logon as administrator.
