    W10 requests admin rights to uninstall a 3rd party program, how can I get such "special" rights when logged as admin on a W10 clean install

    Very true but why can't the op not deinstall 3rd party in the first place that is my question must be something wrong with his rights is my guess. Myself I'm on MS acount and never had this problem ;)

    Next time you can simply look for the file in the program folder. Right-click on the uninst(application file) and select ''Run as administartor" to remove it.
