The UAC and An Uninstall Experience

Today, I was uninstalling a piece of software I was evaluating for purchase when I got a strange UAC prompt…a request to allow an “Unknown Application” access to my computer. Well…as someone who ACTUALLY reads the UAC prompts, I was alarmed at this. I was surfing the web and doing a couple of other things so I was unsure where this prompt was coming from. I refused the request and the uninstall failed. I pulled my network plug and proceeded to uninstall the application. GRRRRRRRR….this type of over site really bugs me…Come on guys…you had to have tested your uninstall program at least once or twice.
