I recently uninstalled the ArcGIS 10 from my computer, the software got uninstalled , but I am unable to uninstall the License manager. It is giving me an error "you don't have sufficient access to uninstall ArcGIS license manager 10"..and I am logged in as Admin.

Due to this problem I am not able to install the ArcGIS 10.1.

How are you uninstalling ArcGIS license manager ? from the control panel? – A.R Jan 8 '13 at 21:04
Have you tried stopping the service manually first before running the uninstall? – Jamie Jan 8 '13 at 21:36
Hey AR ..thanks for the reply yes I am using control panel...@Jamie-I checked MSconfig..therez no service running(actually nothing related to ArcGIS is being shown over there) – KGh Jan 8 '13 at 21:44
I can still see the ArcGIS License manager in the uninstall programs list in control panel. – KGh Jan 8 '13 at 22:35
I recommend to use CCleaner software for this uninstall – Geog Dec 30 '13 at 13:48

If you are still stuck on this one then I recommend that you contact your local Esri Support who are likely to be encountering installation and license manager problems more frequently than most of us here.

I personally recommend Revo Uninstaller. It removes all left overs. Also try to do virus scan and chech harddisk for error with Windows tools, it must solve te problem.
