It's not that easy on windows: The days where you would simply start a program
to do something are long gone ;-).

I assume you got a message-box, saying something like
'This program is normally run by windows', which seems not to
be very good. Probably it should say:
'To remove the MA-8.6 package, please use Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs'
or something like that.
