    Well, "Uninstall" is all fine in theory, obviously you haven't actually TRIED it. With uninstall all you get is :

    The uninstallation requires your browsers to be closed during the process. Please make sure your browsers are closed before continuing.

    As there are no broser-processes runnin, this is impossible to do and therefor the solution offered above does not solve anything.
    Thank you very much.

    ( On win7 )

    Seeing the same message as K.Ojoshiro. I think it's because we interrupted the install process midstream when we realized it was installing junk. It completed the install of a program called NetCrawl so we are able to get rid of that using uninstall.

    While I have removed Rocket from my browser and followed all in instructions for Windows 8. WSE Rocket continues to appear on my control panel. It does not show a version number or size and when I try to uninstall, I get the following message:

    "You do not have sufficient access to uninstall this program. Please contact program administrator:

    ???????????????????
