I don’t want to not uninstall

About Brian Damage:

Who is Brian really?
I live in Toronto, Canada, and work for an IT firm. That's about as much real-world info I'm comfortable divulging here. What you read on my blog is the real Brian, but, for the sake of freedom of speech, I feel most comfortable leaving a gulf between my cyberspace and meatspace personae.

Who is Brian at work?
My ridiculous job title is "Marketing Specialist" since I wear so many hats at work. I'm a technical writer, a specialist in enterprise search technologies, an electronic forms designer, a newsletter author, system administrator... but I'm in the Marketing department so for the time being I'm stuck with this inauspicious title.

What’s the problem with this? Could only be a problem if English isn’t your first language, and even then people taught EFL are better at grammar than native speakers….

My first problem is that I studied Technical Communication in school so I’m a stickler for this kind of thing and am never satisfied.

My specific issue is that the procedure seems backwards. It would make more sense to me if the installed elements were checkmarked and the user was prompted to deselect the elements to be uninstalled. As it stands the user is asked to do a positive action to indicate a negative response.
