Search registry.pol file in this folder C:\WINDOWS\system32\GroupPolicy, then delete the registry.pol, which means restore the local policy to default. 

You may need to look in the location C:\WINDOWS\system32\GroupPolicy\Machine.
As the folder may be hidden, you have to unhide hidden files and folders and unhide protected operating system files in Windows Explorer before you can see the file Registry.pol.

 

Some security softwares like anti-virus may preventing something to be installed. Temporary disable the Antivirus/Firwall and try to uninstall again.

In Vista default location of the file is:

 

C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\User

Go to the location below

 

C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\User

C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\Machine

 

Copy the two registry.pol files, compress and post the zip file in here
