I wasn't paying attention and accidentally installed Matlab in c:\ which appears to be a big problem and the windows installer doesn't recognize the installation. How do I uninstall and reinstall Matlab? (i.e., no MATLAB\version, but rather C:\bin, etc.
Process is complicated as I need to work with IT to run as admin.

I was in a panic. I deleted all of the installed Matlab files and reinstalled correctly. Seems fine now.

Sorry. I wasn't clear that it was the Windows uninstaller that wouldn't work. I just deleted the Matlab files and reinstalled. Seems to have worked.
