super anti-spyware

  osben 17:11 08 Oct 2008


I recently installed a trial copy of the above and now that the trial has come to an end, I want to get rid of it. The reason is because it did not find things that AVG anti-spyware found.

I deleted the programme using "add/remove" but I find that it is still active. Nothing has been deleted apart from the entry in "add/remove"

Before I regret doing something else, can anyone tell me how to get rid of this program in its entirety.

Ccleaner should clean it out for you.

Hi Pineman100

That was quick. Thanks for your reply

I use that but is hasn't cleaned it out.

Try reinstalling it. Once it's running then right click the icon in notification area and click 'exit'. Now go to add/remove and uninstall it.

Use Revo Uninstaller and it will clear it out and take care of all the left behind registry entries as well. I took SAS off my PC some time ago because it always froze my PC half way through. PS It is free and there was an update a day or two ago.

There is a uninstall tool for SAS

I had Super AntiSpyware and followed their intructions to get rid of it - which was to do exactly as you have done using the Add/Remove tool. I found - like you - that Super AntiSpyware was still on my desktop and still in my Programs menu, and there was still an empty Super AntiSpyware folder in my Program Files.

I have now manually deleted all of these entries and left it at that. No doubt it is still in the registry but that's for a registry cleaner to sort out.

mfletch's solution is the best route.

I agree, Pineman! I have now used this tool and it cleared out the remnants. Cheers mfletch!

If you are talking about SUPERAntispyware, I find it brings up more than, in my case, Ad-Aware and even SpyBot (S and D) over a period of time.

However, there are updates daily (except for Sundays it seems), so you need to keep on top of this aspect by doing it manually.

You can use a free version as I do.

I find it first class
