    If one sets a password to protect settings, it's because they want to protect the program settings and installation from being altered/removed by the user (usually in the network environment).

    No, you can only enable password protection for protecting the settings which also includes protection against uninstallation. If one has rights to change settings they can also get the program to a state that is equal to not having the program installed at all.
