Steps to reproduce: 1) Install Nightly with the default options so that Mozilla Maintenance Service gets installed. 2) Click Uninstall a program in Control Panel 3) Select Mozilla Maintenance Service 4) Click Uninstall/Change 5) Click Cancel in the window that shows up Actual results: A Windows-generated dialog pops up that says (in part): "This program might not have uninstalled correctly". Four choices are offered to the user: Close (as the "X" button on top right), "Cancel", "Uninstall using recommended settings" and "This program uninstalled correctly". I didn't dare to try what "Uninstall using recommended settings" does, but it sure looks scary. Expected results: Expected to get back to the program list in Control Panel without any additional Windows-generated UI.
The Firefox uninstaller also does this. But I think this will go away once bug 716480 lands. Please retest once that is marked as fixed on the following Nightly.
I can reproduce this with both the service uninstaller and Firefox uninstaller, even with the Firefox release uninstaller. So I renamed the subject appropriately.
I think there is already a bug on this. I don't recall if the NSIS version in the latest MozillaBuild fixes this but it very well might in which case upgrading the build systems to the latest MozillaBuild will fix this.
I think I read previously in a forum that a newer NSIS version does fix this, but I may be wrong there.

Doesn't reproduce anymore. Newer NSIS version must have fixed it.
