It sounds to me like what you did was to corrupt your mozilla configuration 
files. In the future, to uninstall greasemonkey or any extension, use the 
panel at tools>extensions. Higlight the extension and uninstall. This 

- login with a powerUser account
- do not run/close Mozilla
- rename the directory:
"Q:\Documents and Settings\efa\Dati
"Q:\Documents and Settings\efa\Dati
- delete "Q:\Documents and Settings\efa\Dati

Will make it so mozilla cannot start at all. But further, you are using 
mozilla, not firefox. Greasemonkey is only designed to run on firefox.

Where others greasemonkey write settings or files ?
