Also annoying pop-up box keeps coming up to state that these files cannot be found, "try re-installing". I tried to reinstall 3 times, but to the same problem. When I click the OK button it goes off for 2 seconds and comes back again. The only way to get rid of the box is to uninstall Mozilla from the Control Panel. Have now given up, and am using 1.3 only.

Sounds like an installer bug.
looks like it's related or a dupe of bug 201414. It'll probably get fixed by bug 196061 and bug 190816. try installing to an clean dir, meaning delete/rename the old mozilla dir out of the way before installing the new one. Your profiles will not be harmed as they are located elsewhere on your system.
changing severity -fix to bug 190816 takes care of this problem
what files is does it complain about? Can you list them and the exact error message?
This is not a reproducible problem on current nightly builds.
