Uninstalling

How do you uninstall this program? I just want to be rid of it. Every morning I get a pop up window telling me I didn't close the browser properly the last time I used it, which is total garbage as I've only used it once to see how it looks and certainly closed it correctly. I have tried uninstalling it multiple times but nothing happens. The uninstall window just sits there doing nothing.

KR,

Did you install it for multiple users? If you did, I suggest add/remove from the control panel to find K-Meleon and remove it. Or you can use Revouninstaller, which is a 3rd party uninstall program that does a good job and cleans the registry too.

Below is a link to the portable version which works well.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the link. Couldn't get the program to install, but did from the developer's site. However, it's not having any better luck. I get the same "go nowhere" uninstall window as before. Just a blank progress bar and no way to even cancel other than using the Task manager as all the buttons are dimmed. I am the only user of this computer.

What version of K-Meleon did you install and what operating system are you using. Worse case, you could manually delete the entire K-Meleon folder and thereby get rid of the program. Then you could use something like RegSeeker to hunt down all the registry entries and manually delete them one at a time.

Am a little confused here. You couldn't get Revouninstaller to load up? If so, then you may have other problems besides K-Meleon.

Problem solved. I downloaded K-Meleon again, reinstalled it and then uninstalled. Worked like a charm. Don't know what the problem was with the original version I had (which was the same one as the one I downloaded the second time), but this maneuver did the trick.
