Actually Devashish's answer is (partly) correct. If you click link provided by him, you will see that the problem (most likely) is because the install was done by a different user than the user who is uninstalling. (In my case, I added an admin user after the Netbeans install, so all computer changes now pass through the admin user)

Here is what I did to complete the install:

  1. Find a .nbi folder under C:\Users\folder. This folder has .nbi folder under it
  2. Open a command prompt and Go to NetBeans folder which has uninstall.exe
  3. Run this command in the command prompt:

    uninstall.exe --userdir c:\Users\folder\\.nbi

folder is the folder you found in step 1.

This uninstalled for me. Hope it helps you.
