HP Ink Tank Wireless 410 series uninstall software stopped - did not recognize Administrator status

HP Ink Tank Wireless 410 series
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

HP Ink Tank Wireless 410 series uninstall software stopped, I believe an error code 5 did not recognize Administrator status of User making the Uninstall process and stopped. I tried on both Users who are Authorized Administrators in Windows 10 most updated version. Help please. I'm donating this computer to a child who doesn't have a computer and transferred this printer to a new computer and need to uninstall this software from old computer.
