Can't uninstall 2K 9.5

I am trying to uninstall Foobar 2K 9.5 (Windows XP)and I am getting an error message: "Unable to remove files."

I'm sorry to have to go but maintaining Foobar was getting too tedious with all the invalid paths, crashes etc. 
How can I uninstall it if the uninstall won't work?

Anyone got any Ideas?  I just tried to reinstall it and it wouldn't even do that.

you close the application, right?

you can do it manually, otherwise:

just delete the f2k folder, and this one

\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\foobar2000

Close the app?  Um.....no.   

Thanks!...and bye.  It's been a great last year or so but I just can't invest that much time keeping it running.

Huh. Weird. I don't spend any time keeping foobar2000 running. It just runs. What causes it to stop running?

That's a shame. You could post a crashlog and we will be more than willing to help you resolve the problems!

I've used fb2k for at least five years and I never had any install or uninstall, nor maintenance issues in all that time. The one crashing issue that I experienced was due to the old Matroska input plugin messing up the Media Library. Plugin issues aside, I find fb2k to be one of my most stable programs.

Looking at his posts, the crashes were apparently caused by foo_uie_albumart, a third-party component which is officially disrecommended.
