I am trying to uninstall VS2012 from my Windows 7 but it is giving me "Access Denied".

enter image description here

I have no antivirus installed on my machine plus Windows firewall is also off. Can you help me fixing this issue?

Edit: I am logged with Admin account.

Are you logged in as Administrator? Or another account with privileges to uninstall? – DaBaer Feb 6 '13 at 18:17
Check the error logs. This is clearly a permission problem. – Ramhound Feb 6 '13 at 18:57
