Error "The specified account already exists." during uninstall

During the uninstall of the MT Software Suite under Windows 7/8, the uninstaller can report an error: "The specified account already exists", see the screenshot below.

Pressing OK doesn't allow to try uninstalling the MT Software Suites of parts thereof again. 

There are two options to solve this:

  1. Run the original installer with the version of the installed MT Software Suite, which will detect that the product is already installed. Click "Remove" to uninstall the software. 
  2. This is a Windows-issue, and Microsoft has created a tool for it: FixIt. Choose "Problems with: Uninstall" and uninstall the MT Software Suite.
