I'm trying to perform a clean un-install of Exchange 2010 in w Windows 2008 R2 environment. When I perform the un-install I get the following message:

Error:

I've tried to change the permissions on the file but I've been un-successful. This is the first time that I've expereinced a situation where I was unable to change permission on a file. I'm signed on the system as the Administrator. What could I be missing here.

Thanks
