      Description

      Windows user with limited (+elevated) priviledges can not uninstall jre after installation

      Steps to reproduce:
      1. create a user account with limited priviledges
      2. give that user elevated priviledges by following these instructions:

      From an Administrator-level login, run the Microsoft Management Console --
      1. Start, Run, MMC.EXE
      2. Click File, Add/Remove Snap-in
      3. Click Add...
      4. Select: Local Users and Groups, Click Add
      5. Click Finish
       
      Run Group Policy Edit --
      1. Start, Run, GPEDIT.MSC
      2. Expand the tree on the left to see
      Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Installer
      3. Double-click "Always install with Elevated Privileges"; choose Enable, OK
      4. Double-click "Enable user to use media source while elevated"; choose Enable, OK
      5. Expand the tree to see
      User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Installer
      6. Double-click "Always install with Elevated Privileges"; choose Enable, OK.
      7. File, Exit.

      Now try to install the jre1.6.0 as a non administator. After installation try to uninstall it. You can not do it as a non administator user.
