Go to Start/RUN and type MSCONFIG (this won't work if you have W95 still), and look at the Startup tab first to see if the uninstaller/unwise box has a check mark in it. If so, uncheck it.
Now look at the autoexec.bat and config.sys tabs to see if it's located there and uncheck if you locate it.
Close MSCONFIG but cancel on the reboot for right now.
Go to Start/Programs/Startup folder and see if there is an item there for the uninstaller and right click and delete it. If it's not there, look in the Disabled Startup Items folder and delete it from there if it shows up.
Now reboot.....if the program window comes up again, before cancelling it out, press the CTRL-ALT keys and tap the DEL key to bring up the task monitor and it will show you which file name is actually starting up. Write it down, then click that file, click End Task and it will shut it down.
Either post it back here or go to Start/RUN and type REGEDIT and click My Computer at the top, click Edit, Find, type in the exact name that showed up in the task monitor, and click Find Now......
If a line shows up on the right hand side and you can identify that it is this particular filename and it is in fact the uninstaller/unwise program, look for the path that will be listed for it as well. It is probably a program that has been 'deleted' rather than 'uninstalled' by your spyware program, I would think, and you can right click and delete it from the registry. Then press the F3 key to have the registry keep looking for more entries, and delete them as you find them....but only if they are pointing to the path to programs you know for a fact are already gone. Otherwise you might be deleting uninstallers for programs you still have and want to keep which would make it hard to uninstall those programs later on successfully.
after the desktop is up and the icons are all in place, the Wise Uninstall starts to run, i get a small 'eplorer' winder that is lookong for an uninstall log.....
i did a massive clean up of spy/adaware, ran spybot 4 times and as far as i can see the computer is clean, just this one small annoyance to get rid off....
