For a complete unsintallation..

In the DB...
#1 Delete the "phpbb_easymod" table
#2 In the "phpbb_config" table, delete all the "EM_*" entries

In your phpBB directory...
#3 Delete the "admin/mods" & "admin/em_includes" directories
#4 In the "language/lang_english/" directory, delete the "lang_easymod.php" file
#5 In the "templates/subSilver/admin/" directory, delete all the "mod_*.tpl" files
#6 In the "templates/subSilver/images/" directory, delete "emc.gif"

I hope I don't forget anything ;)

In the next version I think I'll have something right on the settings page so people can more easily fix this.

By ET: #5 In the "templates/subSilver/admin/" directory, delete all the "mod_*.tpl" files

Umm would that not remove all other mod files in addtion to EasyMod?

Hey Six,
Could you be more specific about your problem? What is happening when you try to reinstall? It's a good idea to copy and paste any error messages you get.
