AbiWord: Abi Word [uninstall errors]

My son has downloaded and installed AbiWord Port on my desktop, when I try to uninstall I get error message that it is being used in another application and to shut them down to uninstall. I've attempted to remove by following the instructions for "Removing Apps from the PortableApps.com Menu". I was successful in removing all Contents and folders except for the Other folder, I was able to remove the contents but not the folder. As far as the Software Application itself, I get the same message but I'm not able to remove anything. Can anyone PLEASE HELP????

what does

the task manager say? It should show you whether or not the exe is still in use.
Are there other users logged in? Maybe they use it and thats why you cant delete it.

Normally, after you close a Portable App, you are able to just delete the whole AppnamePortable folder. Thats all you have to do to uninstall it.

As a last resort, you could install Unlocker to "free" folders or files so you can delete them.

Hope that helps.
