I installed Mozilla Firebird & Mozilla browsers (all worked fine). I decided to
then uninstall Mozilla Firebird & from their website they said U could just
delete the unzipped program files for Mozilla Firebird which I did.
I then found I couldn't use Internet Explorer or Microsoft Outlook. With IE, it
gave the message:

I Uninstalled IE6 & rolled back to IE5, but still had the same problem.

This problem has happened before, & we solved this by reinstalling Windows etc.
but I don't want to have to do this again.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.INstall
2.Use
3.Uninstall



Expected Results:  
Uniinstalled , without killing IE
This is not a firebird problem. Firebird never touches that file and since
firebird doesn't have an uninstall feature yet, it doesn't touch the registry
when you delete the firebird program directory. Must be a local issue on your
system.
