I have read through this entire topic and followed all the instructions and I am still getting the [color=#FF0000]Critical Error: This version of EM has already been installed. Terminating to prevent reinstallation.[/color]

Any suggestions?

I've gone through every folder and deleted everything you said too as well as looked for other EM files.

Can someone please a quick, but easy to understand, a-z guide on how to get rid of this MOD. I love the MOd but I have to uninstall this temporarily. Can someone please help?

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 ;)
I've done these steps btw, forgot to mention that in my post above.

Two more things;
1. There was no EM: entries that I could find in phpbb_config table, only two entries; config_name and config_value. Is this normal?

2. There was a bunch of "uninstall" files in the folders that got deleted. Shouldn't those be restored or something?

BTW, what happens to the MODS installed with EasyMOD after this procedure? I think I only installed the country flag mod or something to try it out. Will it be left and mess up my board? :p

Any help is appriciated!

1) The config_name would start with EM_ ;)

2) I'm not sure what you're talking about, but my guess is "that's normal"
