I have tried the kb292582 and the one posted by Slam 69 with no positive results.  I tried all of these fixes remotely but I will have to visit the computer at its actual location to try a couple of other solutions.  I am going to try going into safe mode and delete it that way if I can and also try the solution posted by Milan Ojh.  If I'm still unsuccessful after all of this then I will probably just reimage the computer all together.  I will keep you guys posted on this.

I would like to thank you all for your input on this issue but after trying all solutions you've provided and a couple of personal tricks of my own to no avail I ended up reimaging the computer.  This question can be closed out.
