Cannot Delete Firefox Folder

After having repeated problems with Firefdox (Very slow closing tabs) I uninstalled it and cleaned the registry. But the Firefox Folder was left in C:\Programs. When I tried to delete it manually my computer crashed, I have deleted all the files within it except "Extensions" and if I try it crashes the machine. I have tried safe mode but it will not delete it.
Any thoughts?

Start in safe mode with command prompt.
go to the firefox folder.
delete all files with the del command i.e. for a file called xxx.xxx you'd type del xxx.xxx
If any other folders are there, once empty you can remove them with the rd command. i.e. for a folder called abc, type rd abc from outside that folder.
You must remove everything from the folder first.

type cd..
type del Mozilla Firefox

This should rid you of firefox completely.
