I installed GAnalytics component and plugin to a Joomla site - got funny errors (which I have not logged - sorry) so I decided to uninstall and reinstall. All went well but I cannot uninstall the Tracking file (System Plugin) using the admin panel and cannot find it when I look through the directories on the server. See attached error message when I try to uninstall.

Because of this I cannot reinstall which I really need to do. Please help.

You will need to remove files of this plugin and then remove it from the database.

have you tried to search for analytics within your database using phpmyadmin?

That should find your entries
