Hello Tinakeen, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yes, they are only shortcuts in the Administrative Tools folder. Are you trying to delete them directly from the folder?

Administrative Tools - Restore Shortcuts

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Administrative Tools

In that case, check to see if you have turned on Administrative Tools to display in your Start Menu if you like.

delete a program without sufficient access

how do i get the program to be deleted if it says i do not have sufficient access to uninstall to contact the system administrator but that is me. I do not understand why I cant delete the program.

See if the information at the following link helps;

Permissions - Allow or Deny Users and Groups

Just to clarify, are you trying to delete shortcuts from within the hidden folder location I posted above?

Well, that has nothing to do with Administrative Tools then.

What program are you trying to uninstall?

Have you already tried uninstalling it in Programs and Features?

Yes and that is the error message i get. I thought that if i went to the administrative tools is where to change the permissions but that does not work either.
