I'm trying to uninstall FP in order to reinstall the latest version that will run properly. I'm on Windows 10 and use Chrome. The message I get is "The installer will automatically continue when these conflicting apps are closed: Chrome" When I close Chrome the uninstall does not proceed. I can't uninstall from the Control Panel either. The version I'm trying to uninstall is 32.0.0.171 (FP 32 PPAPI) Any suggestions?

This usually happens because you have Chrome applications running in the background.  Google Hangouts would be a good example.
