When I uninstall it, it doesn't complete clear their files so I can't install another program, how can I fix this?

Did you install it using Fantastico/Softaculous or manually?

If you installed it using an autoinstaller, did you use its built in uninstall function?

And when you try to manually delete the files, are you receiving an error message?

Following filenames already exist in the main directory of the domain thearts.elementfx.com (path="/home/artsy/public_html/").You must manually remove these files before proceeding with auto-installation:
administrator
cache
components
images
includes
language
libraries
logs
media
modules
plugins
templates
tmp
xmlrpc

Click on the browser's Back button to fix reported errors <== that didnt work

And when i Tried to delete:

and, What is this madness =.=

Is this going to happen every time someone tries to remove a Softaculous installed script?
