If you are having technical issues on Roblox, sometimes it may be helpful to uninstall Roblox before reinstalling it. This article will guide you through the process of uninstalling.
- In Windows XP: go to Start menu > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs. Scroll down until you see Roblox, and uninstall the program there.
- In Windows Vista or Windows 7: go to Start menu > Control Panel > Programs and Features. Scroll down until you see Roblox and uninstall the program from there.
- In Windows 8 or 8.1: pull up the tiled start screen by clicking in the lower left corner of your screen. Then type "Programs and features" and click the Programs and Features icon that appears to the right in your search results. In the window that pops up, scroll down until you see Roblox and uninstall the program there.
- In Windows 10: click the start button or the Cortana search box in the lower left of the screen. Alternatively, you can hold the Windows key on your keyboard followed by hitting the S key. In the search box, type "Programs and features" and click the Programs and Features icon that appears at the top of your search list. In the window that pops up, scroll down until you see Roblox and uninstall the program from there.
Delete the Roblox Folder
If you are having a particularly persistent problem, it may be helpful to fully remove the Roblox folder after uninstalling to make sure there are not any corrupted or outdated files left over. You can do this by following the steps below:
- Right click on the start button and click Explore or File Explorer
- Navigate to this folder : C:\Users\(Your Windows Username)\AppData\Local
- Delete the Roblox folder
Note: This should not delete any places that you may have saved in Studio unless you have manually chosen to save them in this folder.
If you are having difficulty uninstalling the program, try the following:
Clear your Temporary Internet Files
An important step in any uninstall or reinstall process is to clear your browser's temporary internet files. This will help with any corruption issues that might have arisen. For assistance with this process, please click here and see the Clear Your Temporary Internet Files and Cookies section.
Check Your Firewall
A lot of antivirus or internet security software tries to control which programs can access the internet. Often, these programs err on the side of caution and by default no program is allowed access. For assistance with looking into this and allowing Roblox through any blockages, click here.
The next possibility is to Reinstall. This may seem counter-intuitive but if the problem is a corrupted file from a previously unsuccessful uninstall attempt, this will overwrite the copy of the program on your computer, and replace any deleted or broken files. You should then be able to go into your Start menu and uninstall the program. For assistance with reinstalling, please click here.
1. Make sure you are completely closed out of the Roblox program.
To ensure that you are completely closed out of the program, please press the Command + Option + Esc keys to open a task management prompt. Make sure you do not see Roblox or Roblox Studio in it. If either program is listed, please select Roblox or Roblox Studio and click Force Quit.
2. Open Finder and search for "NPRoblox.plugin" - Once you have found this item, please delete it.
Note: Make sure you are searching all folders within your Mac. If you are searching within the local folder, your search will not execute properly.
3. Go to Finder > Applications
Drag the Roblox icon into the trash; the icon in finder contains all of the Roblox files that have been installed.
