Can't uninstall Computer protection from Windows, getting error: "Uninstallation is not allowed"

This discussion has a more recent version.

Issue:

I am trying to uninstall Computer protection from my Windows PC, I get an error: 
"Uninstallation is not allowed, Settings do not allow local uninstallation. Contact your administrator."

Resolution:

This is due to the Computer Protection profile setting that disallows user from uninstalling the product locally. 

Please ask your PSB account administrator to change the settings:

  1. Go to PSB Portal
  2. Choose Profiles
  3. Select the profile that is assigned to the computer 
  4. Go to General Settings
  5. Go to Allow the user to uninstall the product 
  6. Enable the setting (slide down to green)
  7. Click Save and publish
