Why do we say Uninstall, Double negative. Cannot we just say stall?

BZZZT! Install is not a negative form of anything. It's from the Latin for "into place".

There are no real "bugs" in software, but it's the accepted word to use.
You don't hang up your phone but again, accepted use.
There are many terms that don't make sense in their staid meaning, but we use them because we've accepted them into our language to mean something else.

Because it is the proper terminology.
