Register keys of Firefox

By Pcfreakske2000 ·
Hi all ,

I have a question.
I removed Firefox from my system , it was a rather old version of FireFox. Since I didn't use Firefox , I uninstalled it.

I installed SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard.
SpywareBlaster tells me that I still have Firefox , how do I get rid of those register keys of FireFox ?

Thank you.

Greetings ,

Yes many programs are bad to clean registery when they're uninstalled. In my experience you can either do it manually (like searching registery for firefox or mozilla) or there are some programs doing it. I don't remember any names but a google search will certainly help you with this.

Open the Registry editor, click Edit--click Find--type in "firefox" (without the quotes)--click Find Next. Delete anything "firefox" and click Find Next (or press the F3 function key). Repeat this until "Find Next" finds nothing else.

Before ever editing the Registry, save a backup copy, just in case anything goes wrong.

There are several utilities available ranging from Win Doctor in Norton's System Works to System Mechanic from Iolo.

You might like to try a 30 day trial of this program just to clean your computer and then delete it although there is no guarantee that the Iolo Option will be totally removed.

Just don't bother with the Pro version as the only difference is that it has an AV product included.
