Go through the checklist in this page and make sure you are doing all the things they specify - e.g., stopping the services. If it still fails, make sure that you are logged on as an admin that has permissions to do the uninstall. Also, look in the event log to see if there are any errors. https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143412.aspx
