I unstalled spybot S&D but when I go to start-find-files or folders and type in spybot s&d it shows up and list that its in C:\program files\spybot. How do I completely remove spybot from my computer so I can download a new copy. I download 1.4 and the search got halfway through and I got "This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down."
Spybot will run automatically on startup of your PC so you must close the program before uninstalling. The easiest way would have been to run Spybot and then in `File` selected `Exit`.
If you have a PCA disk you will find a copy on there to enable you to reinstall it. Then you should be able to remove it through `All Programs>Spybot-Search & Destroy>Uninstall Spybot-Search & Destroy`.
I should add that on the later PCA disks it is Spybot S&D 1.4.
