This post will show you how to enable the ability to uninstall programs when in safe mode. This can help if you have installed a driver or some other piece of software that may have blue screened your computer.
Launch your computer into safe mode and then run the following from a command prompt:
REG ADD "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Minimal\MSIServer" /VE /T REG_SZ /F /D "Service"
Then you need to start the MSI service by running the following from the command prompt:
net start msiserver
Then go ahead and reboot your machine into Safe Mode again. Then try and uninstall a program from the Control Panel. You should now find that it allows you to do so.
