In my experience, generally the uninstaller never uninstalls the programs completely. The folders are there in the program even after the program is uninstalled, This is only the basic procedure to uninstall the program. What I did was that I even deleted the folders by the name Mozilla manually also. Even then it is not removed completely.

Download install and update Ccleaner
Attention : the installation package comes with the Yahoo toolbar
if you do not want that you have to, untick the box accepting it during installation process.


After installing and updating go to options - advanced and tick prompt for registry back ups
Now Start up in safe mode
Do two runs

1) Click on problems and tick all. Click on analyse. At the end you will be prompted for storing a backup.
This will be stored, as a default, in My documents.
2) Click on cleaner click on analyse and accept all files to be removed.

If yu are not sure about removing items please post a list so that we may advise you.
