Tell us what the Applications are.

In addition to appropriate permissions , do you have OWNERSHIP of the applications?
Right click on the file's executable / Properties / Security / Advanced / Owner tab.

What error message you recieve while uninstalling also check the system and application log for any errors and warning while uninstalling the app.

I do not understand, I have some applications that I can run without run as administrator and some I will have to run them with Run as administrator.

As I said, I am logged in with Domain administrator account which is by default member of Local adinistrators group. In addition I added manually the account I looged in with(domain admin account) to the Local Administrator Group...just to make sure 10% the account is an administraor on the computer...

for instance I opened CMD and run GPresult, I got:

ERROR: Access Denied.

When I ran it with Run as Administrator, it worked...

I made it unrestricted and it fixed the problem..

But I believe users will be able to run anything under %Appdate% that way...
So how do I disallow everything under %Appdata% except for the manually specified paths?
