I found this so I have corrected my problem with spy-bot by using system restore. But found this. I guess I could use this when they come out with a newer version. Does this sound right to anyone using spy-bot
How to uninstall?
Version 1.3 (also 1.2) will uninstall from the Windows Add/Remove Software control panel without problems.
If you want to completely get rid of Spybot-S&D 1.3 (also 1.2) and the Add/Remove doesn't help, you can delete the installation folder (usually C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.3\), then download this very small fix and execute it (important! - this will remove all remains from the registry) (this also applies to earlier versions).
If you just want to upgrade to a newer version, please follow the same instructions like above and then install the new version.
After following these instructions please restart your system so that the changes can take place.
Also, neither the automated uninstall nor the manual uninstall like described above will remove the following directories, which you will have to remove by hand:
Windows 95 or 98: C:\Windows\Aplication Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy\
Windows ME: C:\Windows\All Users\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy\
Windows NT, 2000 or XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy\
(Please note that the Application Data Folder is hidden. So if you can't find this folder please check your folder properties).
When I went to uninstall Spybot-Search & Destroy 1.3 I get Error The uninstall log file C:/program files/spybot search & destroy/unins 000.dat" is in a format not recognized by this version of the uninstaller. Cannot uninstall. I tried to uninstall in the add/remove programs and then the uninstall feature. Does anyone know what happened. I was having some problems with it and wanted to uninstall and reinstall. Now can't.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
