Uninstall CounterSpy antispyware program

  armacomroll 17:11 26 May 2005

I am trying to uninstall counterspy (antispyware) after the trial period has expired. I have uninstalled by using add/remove in windows but when I reboot the whole desktop freezes,even the start button and I have to turn off manually. I then have to do a system restore to get back to normal. I have tried removing it in safe mode but windows won't allow it. I assume that counterspy is running on start-up which is preventing the removal of the program but I don,t know how to disengage the program. Can anyone help me to remove counterspy.

You can shut down Counterspy by right clicking its Icon in the Notification Bar. Then Go through the uninstall procedure

If that does not work, run msconfig, open startup, and untick the entry SubasDTServ, click apply and reboot.
