-This is for those who have problems with Roblox, and can't uninstall it-

Step 1 -
Open up "My Computer"

Open the next to last drop-down box in the new window. (Service(s) or something, sorry. Russian Windows. :l)

Click on "Folder options" (Or something like that, it's at the bottom.)

You'll see a new window, and then click on the "Show (Second)" tap in the window.

Find the "Hidden folders and files" option. (It should be in a category)

Check "Show hidden folders and files"
(Step 1 done, now you can see hidden folders and files!)

Click the Apply button, then the Ok button.

(Done! Now you can see hidden folders and files!)
Step 2 -
Double click on the C drive. (Or whatever drive you've installed Roblox on.)

Then enter the "Documents and Settings" folder.
Inside there, enter the user folder with the same name as your user account (On Windows. *Mostly Admin or Administrator.*)
Enter the "Local Settings" folder.
Then enter the "Application Data"
Delete the folders "Roblox" "RobloxDownloads" "RobloxVersions"

(Done! Now to clean the registry so that it's fully gone. (And you can install it again, if that's what you want.)

Step 3 -
Close the window you've opened.
Click on the "Start button" (In the bottom-left corner of the screen.)

Then click "Run"

Type in "regedit"

Enter the folder "HKEY_CURRENT_USER"
Then enter the "Software" folder inside it.

Delete the entries "ROBLOX Corporation" and "Roblox Reg"
Ignore the warnings that pop up, and choose to delete them anyway.

(Done! Now Roblox is fully gone from your computer!)

-That's all folks, now you can install Roblox again, or forget about it. (You can always join again..)-

"(Service(s) or something, sorry. Russian Windows. :l)"
It's "Tools".

"Show (Second)"
It's "View"

And on Vista:

1) You need to delete the ROBLOX folder in C>Users>Your User Name>AppData>Local
2) To run "regedit" type "regedit" in the start menu search bar.

Still can't play the game after doing this correctly =S

When I click the play button,it tells me to install.I do and it'll pull up the Roblox browser.If I click play in the Roblox browser or on the website on IE it'll tell me to install again.

Worked a few weeks ago.Now?Not that much.

This 'step-by-step guide' is for uninstalling ROBLOX so that it isn't installed any longer. As the 'uninstaller' likes to get bugged. And people around here usually have no idea about uninstalling a program manually.

Which can prove useful if a faulty installation was made, or a bug occured and broke the files. Or if you want to uninstall it and forget about it.´

P.S: This shouldn't take more than 10 minutes, even if you have no idea about what you're doing. (Even less if you know what you're doing.)

P.S.S: You don't have to remove everything that has something to do with ROBLOX, just the files ROBLOX uses to run. (And the registry part is so that you can install it again.)
