    The action of uninstall is broadly (not totally) the same as install. That is, it requires the same priveleges. So, no, you cannot grant uninstall without giving the privelege of install. ... Thinkpads_User

    No, You can't do this. Because windows doesn't understand that the program you're running wants to install something or remove something!
    So the privileges are the same for any program or software (no matter wants to modify/remove/install).
    There are few softwares allowing a specific program to run as administrator, but it involves in putting passwords on the script which may lead to bad stories!!
