Can't uninstall Firefox

I'm trying to uninstall Firefox. I was able to uninstall the Firefox maintenance program in Control Panel but can't uninstall program itself. The hourglass just blinks once and then nothing else happens.

Help please!

Just do a search for Mozilla Firefox and delete everything it finds.

Dirty Registry?

That's fine for Files & Folders, BUT what about the Registry?

After I delete a program I always run Glary Registry Repair (FREE), Twice. The 1st. time I search for the name of the deleted program. 2nd. I search for the name of the software company that wrote the deleted program. Obviously when deleteing the name of the software company from the Registry, you have to be careful, because you may have more than one program written by the same company.

You can also use Ccleaner to help clean out the registry.
