How to remove SUPERAntiSpyware
« on: January 10, 2011, 01:20:04 PM »
Yesterday the Subject program appeared on my computer, even though AVAST has been installed for 6 months now.  I tried to delete it with Windows Add/Remove but was told, "Error reading uninstall data". Can anyone tel me how I can get rid of this bogus product?
Thanks,
Don

SuperAntispyware is a good program (http://www.superantispyware.com/).
Would installing and then uninstalling again solve the problem?

The question would be does anyone else have access to this computer as it isn't an easy thing to install SAS without your knowledge.

Of course there is a possibility that you haven't got the legitimate SAS, what is the install location ?

Mine is located at C:\Program Files\SUPERAntiSpyware (XP Pro location).
Core2Duo E8300/ 4GB Ram/ WinXP ProSP3/ avast! free 2014 9.0.2018/ Outpost Firewall Pro9.1/ Firefox 28.0, NoScript, RequestPolicy/ MailWasher Pro/ DropMyRights/ MalwareBytes AntiMalware Premium 2.0.1/ WinPatrol+/ Drive Image 7.1/ SnagIt 10.0/ avast! mobile security
