I'm sure this is well discussed.

Be sure to research this but the old standbys are Revo Uninstaller and the boot to safe mode to delete the folder that it's in.

There is another alternative too.

Go from Start to Run, if not on your list, it is under Accessories under Remote Desktop Connection, type in regedit and click OK. At the top is Edit, click on that to Find, type in Mozilla and Enter key. To keep searching, use F3 key until it says finished searching. Darrell

Also, on CCleaner, you can right click after you highlight
