When I try to reinstall Firefox right after I choose Standard setup and click next, it keeps saying "Your computer must be restarted to complete a previous uninstall of Firefox. Do you want to reboot now?" Please help.
I tried to reinstall Firefox after uninstalling, and it keeps saying "Your computer must be restarted to complete a previous uninstall of Firefox. Do you want to reboot now?" When I restart and try again, it keeps saying the same thing.
Usually the only reason it will ask you to reboot is if there is a file that must be modified that the updater doesn't currently have access to. You should try running the Firefox program once as Administrator:
- Right-click the icon and choose Run as Administrator
If that doesn't help then do a clean reinstall.
- Download a fresh copy of Firefox from the Mozilla download page and save the file to the desktop.
- Uninstall your current version of Firefox and remove the Firefox program folder before running the new installer.
- Run installer
Remember that you don't want to remove personal data when uninstalling. That way you'll still have your personal information.
Hopefully this helps!
I cant right-click the icon because its gone from when I tried to uninstall it. And I still cant install a fresh copy because it keeps getting the same error.
It also is no longer in my add/remove programs in control panel, because I had already attempted to remove it.
Thanks for your attempted help.
