Try removing it from the registry, start, run, regedit. At the registry window go to edit, then find, type in item name, if file(s) appear listed under the item name, right click delete. Good luck!
Well, I'm having quite some difficulties removing this program, but not just the normal way.. Initially, I had it installed, and it worked fine. My time ran out, and I didn't like it enough to renew it. So I uninstalled it, and it disappeared fine. But, a month later, I did a System Restore, to apparently a time where I still had it, and now, it just keeps bugging me.
Every time windows starts up - Webroot asks me for my CD-Key...Which I no longer have (and probably wouldn't work even if I had kept it.) So, I check out Add-Remove Programs, and click uninstall on it. "Message File "C:\Program Files\Webroot\Spy Sweeper\unins002.msg" is missing. Please correct the problem or obtain a new copy of the program." Damn.
So before I go and download a free trial, and see if that can remove it, I decide to try deleting the folder the normal way. I head over to the path that was just stated above, and click delete. I give it admin permission (as I'm on Vista, Home Premium), and away it goes...Or so I thought. It keeps asking for admin permission, even though I gave it some.
So, one last try. I google for a trial version of Spy Sweeper, and see if that can uninstall it. Downloads fine, but all it wants to do is install a new version. Damn.
So, any tips on how I could remove this program? If you guys need any more info, I'll be glad to fork some out, though I'm pretty sure all you ned to know is that I'm Vista.
