Can't Open Plex and Don't Know How to Fix It...Be Gentle With Me...

#1

Have had Plex for about three years now and it's worked pretty much flawlessly.

This last week I had to restore my iMac from a back-up. That went well, however now Plex doesn't work.

So - I deleted the program and did a re-install. Seems to download fine but won't open...

When I try to open it it'll make a quick little jump but won't actually open.

I've searched thru this forum and found a good deal of info that I really don't understand. Can someone walk me thru all this like I'm a 7 year old? Actually a 7 year old could probably do this

Ok, can you explain what you did to uninstall Plex Media Server.
