AOMEI Backupper Cannot Uninstall

When attempting to completely uninstall, I get the following error:

File "C:\Program Files (x86)\AOMEI\AOMEI Backupper\7.3.3\uninst000.dat" could not be opened. Cannot uninstall.

Error 32: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

Now what do I do to uninstall this software?
