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?

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 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.
