Windows 7: How to run add remove programs as administrator (elevated)?

How to run add remove programs as administrator (elevated)?

I want to uninstall my "Buggy" ESET Smart Security (ESS) v8 in Safe Mode, and get rid of all the drivers...
(I am then going to try Norton IS 2017).

ESET does Not offer an uninstall tool to do this (leaves umpteen drivers/files...), so I want to Run the Uninstaller as elevated Admin, and hopefully "completely" get rid of ESS.

How do I do this?

Try Revo Uninstaller. It does a very complete job removing most programs. The FREE version is fine IMO. If you want more then the Pro version may be a good choice.

Thanks!- I have Revo free installed, but have had mixed results... in the past
(ESS may be the culprit!?).

I'll try Revo as Admin, After I 1st make a Macrium Reflect backup?

This ESET website does explain how to uninstall it. So have a look & follow the suggestions.
