Unable to run Firefox

  iscanut 15:43 05 Jan 2010

Not wishing to go into a long story..I uninstalled Firefox and then did a fresh install. It will not run and throws up the following ...

Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system.

I have closed and restarted, uninstalled and reinstalled but all I get is the above message. I am foxed ! Can anyone give advice as to how to get Firefox back and running ?

Download, install and run CCleaner click here after first uninstalling Firefox, then reinstall Firefox

"install and run CCleaner" both in Cleaner and Registry mode
