I have a user that has a child who loaded this arcade game called nick arcade and the game it loade was Avatar Bobbles Battles. I keep getting access denied and I am logged on as admin. I cannot find the uninstall and when I try to delete it form add and remove I cannot, as it tells me the it cannot find uninstall log. I made sure I even added my domain admin name and gave me full controll and still cannot get rid of it.

I'd try logging in as your admin account, download and re-install that game, then try to uninstall.

I would suggest trying to remove from Safe Mode. However, if the game cannot locate the uninstall log I'm not sure that this will work.
You might try to resolve this using their technical support. That is located here.

Try using Revo Uninstaller.  It is much better than the default Windows remove program applicaiton and it will also remove Registry and folders as well.

I have sent an email to Nick and will also go now and try the uninstall program and see what happens. Thansk and I will get back.
