I am trying to uninstall Quickbooks Pro 2007 from Windows Vista Ultimate. When I start the uninstall, I get
a dialog box that says:

"This patch could not be opened. Verify  that the
patch package exists and that you can access it, or
contact the application vendor to verify that this is a
valid Windows Installer patch package."

How do I uninstall Quickbooks?

(I tried the Intuit support site)
