Manually uninstall RSFiles!

If for some reason the automatic uninstallation fails, follow these steps to manually remove RSFiles! from your Joomla!:
  1. Locate your Joomla!/administrator/components/ folder. Delete the folder named com_rsfiles.
  2. Connect to your MySQL database and remove all of the _rsfiles tables. For example, if your Joomla! database prefix is "jos", remove all tables that start with jos_rsfiles.
  3. For instance, use this SQL script:
      DROP TABLE `jos_rsfiles_bookmarks`, `jos_rsfiles_config`, `jos_rsfiles_emails`, `jos_rsfiles_email_downloads`, `jos_rsfiles_files`, `jos_rsfiles_groups`, `jos_rsfiles_licenses`, `jos_rsfiles_mirrors`, `jos_rsfiles_reports`, `jos_rsfiles_rules`, `jos_rsfiles_screenshots`, `jos_rsfiles_statistics_data`, `jos_rsfiles_statistics_files`, `jos_rsfiles_tags`, `jos_rsfiles_tag_relation`
  4. For Joomla! 3.x: Browse the _extensions, _assets and _menus tables and erase all com_rsfiles entries. For instance, use these SQL queries:
  5.   DELETE FROM `jos_extensions` WHERE `element`='com_rsfiles'
      DELETE FROM `jos_menu` WHERE `link` LIKE '%com_rsfiles%'
      DELETE FROM `jos_assets` WHERE `name` LIKE '%com_rsfiles%'
