Your computer must be restarted to complete a previous upgrade of firefox

I ran into this error message today at work on a Server 2003 R2 Terminal server. Every time I tried to run Firefox (version 3) it said it needed to reboot the server to complete an upgrade. After 2 or 3 reboots and still not working I decided to try Add/Remove programs and ended up with the server rebooting without notice. After searching around the forums my solution ended up being to delete the *.moz-upgrade and *.moz-delete files from Firefox folder %programfiles%\Mozilla Firefox to fix this. After that uninstall worked perfectly.
