Uninstaller requires a reboot if unknown files exist in subdirectories

|Details | Review|
In the Windows uninstaller, if any files exist in known subdirectories of the root installation directory (such as defaults/pref/) which are not listed in the precomplete file and are not explicitly removed by the uninstaller, then the uninstaller will force a reboot to remove them. This specifically affects defaults/pref/autoconfig.js, but there doesn't seem to be anything special about that particular file except that it's not in the root directory. The uninstaller should either leave these files alone and continue on its way (as we do with unknown files in the root of the installation directory) or try to remove them without a reboot. This was first reported in bug 1497907, but I limited its scope and broke this issue out into its own bug.
