.dll files are important system files that can at times be protected by antivirus softwares. There is a chance that the antivirus software you are running could be interfering. Try disabling it for a few minutes while uninstalling.

If that is not the case then have you already installed a newer version of SQL Server? It may be possible that the same. dll file is being used by the newer version. Try closing it (it might be running some minor processes in the background).

Or you could try uninstalling the newer version first and then uninstalling this one. (if the above process does not help).

Try closing all other windows applications while running the uninstallation. .dll files are sometimes common between different programs as well.

Let me know if any of these solutions work.
