A lot of recommendations for CCleaner to clean out any remaining registry items.

Have you Uninstalled FSX?    As Jim has said you will also need to remove all 5 folders,  So when you Install FSX again it will Install to a nice new clean slate,  Lovely Jovely  

 

 

==========================

 

Locating and Deleting the 5 FSX folders.  

 

Your FSX folders are located here.  

 

  ----------------------------------------

 

 ► Computer ► Your FSX Install Location ► FSX

 

 ► Libraries ► Documents ► FSX 

 

 ► Computer ► Local Disk (C:) ►ProgramData ► Microsoft ► FSX 

 

 ► Computer ► Local Disk (C:) ► Users ► you ► AppData ► Roaming ► Microsoft ► FSX 

 

 ► Computer ► Local Disk (C:) ► Users ► you ► AppData ► Local ► Microsoft ► FSX 

 

--------------------------------------------

 

Depending on the configuration of your system some of these folders can be hidden away in your C Drive 

 

If this is the case, please follow these simple steps.  

 

You need to change the folder option from Don't show hidden files  to  Show hidden files 

 

For windows 7 and 8 and 10 users,  open your Control Panel and follow the path. 

 

Control Panel ► Appearances and Personalisation ► Show hidden files and folders.  3 Tick the circle, Click Apply and Ok

Thanks Poppet - i have deleted all except libraries/documents which I could not find and still the fault remains - FSX offers to repair or uninstall but to install.

re the hidden folders - I can see them but still don`t know how (or if) to delete them.

 

IUnless someone can offer another solution to try it looks as though I may have to reinstall Windows 10 to get a clean pc but that really is the last hope

should read "but NOT to install"

raffer - Tell it to repair. You should get a full install even if there are a few "leftovers".  -  Doug
