Richard, Paul, LyX Users,

It's been over a week since I've been able to convert to finished text in either LyX 1.6.7 or 2.0.0 (using DVI or View). I've received many suggestions, for which I am grateful, but nothing has worked. Is there a way to wipe both versions of LyX off my computer and start over from scratch? My OS is Windows XP.

Yes. You can run the uninstallers: go to Control Panel, look for the category that says install/uninstall software, click uninstall to get a list of software for which Windows has identified an uninstaller, and use that to wipe both versions. (As an aside, there's a very nice freeware program for Windows called CCleaner that, among other things, will do the same thing, but a bit faster. It also has a registry cleaner, which is useful for zapping wayward registry entries that many uninstallers leave behind.) After uninstalling, look for the LyX program directories (under C:\Program Files) and the user directories (which you've previously visited) and delete anything that may have been left behind.
