Messed up during uninstall, now can't reinstall.

I had to reset my PC. and this means that I had to redownload all of my plugins for paint.net. I accidentally pressed the install all button on a plugin pack and decided to just reinstall paint.net instead of manually deleting the plugins I didn't want. I uninstalled paint.net and noticed that the paint.net folder was still there, so I thought it would be a good idea to manually delete the folder. Now when I try to install paint.net it says "fatal error during installation". Is there a way that I can fix this?

Sounds like you have an existing paint.net installation that has become broken. Please use this utility to remove the broken installation:

Afterwards, you should be able to install paint.net anew.
