    There are many steps you have to go through as well as manual removing things from database. Its basically reverse of the installation steps that happened within the script

    No problem. You're welcome

    A tip - create a development copy of your main site. Make sure it is in a subdomain named development. If you host at BryZar, they can make it for you. Make sure the development site is closed to the public. The easiest way to do that is to set it in maintenance mode which requires a code to access. Then, test plugins on the development site before putting on live so that you can see if there are issues as removing plugins is very tricky and can be risky.
