I am trying to completely uninstall Thunderbird from my hard drive...

<<<Brought on by the fact that Thunderbird has no ability to send and receive my domain Email.>>>

...but it keeps hanging on.

I tried to uninstall Thunderbird using the uninstall executable, and on a whim reinstalled it to see if there was any memory of it in my computer. Sure enough ... there was. It had remembered all of my Email accounts and SMTP settings.

I tried again, this time deleting Mozilla Thunderbird from my REGEDIT (both the Mozilla Thunderbird folder and the Thunderbird folder in the Firefox Folder) and reinstalled again.

Thunderbird still remembered all of my Email accounts and SMTP settings.

Next I deteled my Email accounts first, and all of my SMTP settings, but Thunderbird wouldn't let me delete my last default SMTP setting. Of course, when I reinstalled, that last SMTP setting was still there.

Please, what must I delete to remove Thunderbird from my hard drive. Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks.
