From your post, it looks like the ICQ uninstaller program is a 16bit
application. See:

Error message when you install or start an MS-DOS or 16-bit Windows-based
program:

It may not be! However, the XP installer/uninstaller seems to also check
for this file.

FYI, the Add/Remove Program is just an applet that simply invokes the
uninstaller program defined by ICQ.
