I tried to uninstall Spy Sweeper, however, it will not completely leave my computer. I try to do it through CP and I get the code,

unins000.dat

And it still shows it is running in the task manager.


How do I get it off totally?


Thanks,

John

The program seems gone, but the "Spysweeper" still shows up in Control Panel Add/remove programs. When I click on remove it gieves an error saying something does not exist and will not remove from the tree.

I can't remember how to clear this. Post the question in the XP forum. Expand on this a bit. I'm sure thy will have the answer real quick.
