Went to website and followed instructions. Still can't delete it.

If it isn't causing problems, it is probably best left alone and ignored.

All sorts of damage can be caused by removing programs incorrectly so, if it doesn't come out easily, give up.

Hi £dstowe. Just having a clear out of programs that i don't use any more. And i am one of those people that if i can't remove something from my pc i want to know why.Thank you for your help.

If you open the program, then click on Help, then Frequently asked Questions from the drop down box. It gives instructions on how to remove the program.

Why do you want to remove it? It is doing a good job keeping your computer free from spyware.

I would also hope that you have a lot of other protection on your computer. Like AVG antivirus, Adaware, Spywareblaster and Zonealarm.

If you removed the installation files as directed and run the download cleanup routine all the files to run SpyBot will have been removed. Are you quite sure it is still there?

Hi Pj. Yes i got AVG,Adaware,Zonealarm and Spysweeper.As i said above i am just clearing programs that i don't use any more to create more space on the pc.Thank you for your post.
