can't remove webshots desktop using add/remove

by deew480 / January 15, 2010 2:13 PM PST

I have been trying to remove webshots for about a week now. I go to add/remove programs click to remove webshots desktop, it will ask me if I want to remove the program, I click yes then nothing happens. I am not a premium customer of webshots so I can't contact their tech dept. Can someone please help me with this?

Try Windows Installer Cleanup . . .

Find it at Google.

Or a utility called Move on Boot (Google).

Or try the Add/Remove in Safe Mode.

If the 2nd post does not work try to remove it with 'My Computer', empty the recycle bin, then run
Ccleaner http://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner-20 to clean up the register.

If 'My Computer' does not work try any of the delete programs, like 'Super Delete', out there, then run Ccleaner to clean up the register.
