Uninstall Firefox

Are you having trouble trying to uninstall Firefox? Mozilla Firefox is an internet browser, it is a free browser that can be downloaded off the internet. The only problem with Firefox is that it can be a very difficult program to remove.

How To Uninstall Firefox With Windows

You can remove the program from your computer quite easily with the windows uninstaller, though this will still leave you with downloads, personal information, updates and plugins. This means you can get rid of the software but not all of the bits that cause problems to your computer!

If you want to remove the software then you must;

1. Click the Start button and navigate to the Control Panel.
2. Once your in the Control Panel then double-click the Add/Remove Programs icon.
3. When the list has populated highlight the Mozilla Firefox and press either Remove or Install/Uninstall.
4. Follow the instructions on screen.
5. Reboot your computer.

Like I previously stated this will only get rid of the software itself. To delete all of the other files and folders you will need to do it manually from the system registry. The process can be a very dangerous task if you don't know what you are doing. The system registry is basically what controls everything on your computer, if you delete the wrong file or folder you could do more harm than good and leave yourself with software that is corrupted and wont work.

Downloading Software To Remove Firefox

If you don't want to go through the process of manually deleting software then you might need to download some uninstaller software to do the job for you. There are a few decent programs online, one that is held in very high regard amongst the industry is called the Perfect Uninstaller.
