    i have the same problem. cannot find a fix. i am going to call avanquest tomorrow to see what i can do

    If you didn't call Avanquest, yet, do it, explain the problem and request a product expert. They will walk you through deleting it and then, will send you a download through e-mail that is supposed to be fixed. I need to call back though because the link takes me to my info. at Avanquest, but I'm not sure where to find the download. Make sure you ask about it.

SOURCE: Space Issues with Avanquest System Suite 9

I'm guessing that before you installed this software you had a lot of space on your hardrive. Have you opted to perform a \recovery backup' or 'system restore', or something like that during the install? If so this may explain why it is taking up all this room. 
What this would do is make a copy of everything on you computer into a backup file, effectively greatly reducing your available space.

Program


Fix-It Utilities is a program by Avanquest that is marketed as an all-around computer protection and enhancement tool.
Fix-It Utilities scans your computer for potential problems and fixes them automatically. Additionally, it monitors your computer in real time to alert you about hardware and software issues before they can cripple your computer.
If you are looking for a utility to handle your computer maintenance for you, Fix-It Utilities is one program that you might consider selecting.

Double-click the downloaded program file if you purchased the digital version of Fix-It Utilities directly from Avanquest.
If you purchased the boxed retail edition, insert the installation disc and allow a moment for the Fix-It Utilities installation program to load.
Click "Next" when the Fix-It Utilities Installation Wizard appears.
Read the terms of the Avanquest license agreement carefully before continuing.
If you are willing to abide by the terms, click the "Accept" button to continue.
Enter the name that you would like to register Fix-It Utilities under, and then type your 24-character product key exactly as it is shown in the product packaging or the email sent by Avanquest when you purchased Fix-It Utilities online.
Click "Next."
Select the radio button labeled "Complete" to install all of the features of Fix-It Utilities, and then click "Next" twice.
The installation utility begins copying the files for Fix-It Utilities to the hard drive.
When this process is complete, the installation utility displays a screen with four check boxes.
Use the four check boxes on the screen to indicate whether you would like Fix-It Utilities to check for and install updates automatically, whether you would like the program to make snapshots of your system for recovery in the event of a problem, whether you would like the program to monitor your computer for malware and viruses and whether you would like the program to scan your email.
Click "Next," and then click "OK" and "Finish."
Fix-It Utilities is installed.
If you used the check box to configure Fix-It Utilities to check for updates automatically, the program begins scanning the Internet for updates immediately.

How can i delete my task manager ?


I got rid of it. The best way to get rid of IE 9 once you have downloaded it is to go to Windows Update, click " view update history", click "Installed Updates" and once they all appear, find Windows Internet Explorer 9 ( Under Microsoft Windows, which is below Microsoft Visual C & Microsoft Silver-light 1, among others ) and uninstall it! It is quite very simple and IS the only way to get back to IE 8 ( If that is what you had previously, otherwise it will default to IE 7. BTW, very easy to re-install IE 8! )

It seems that your spouse downloaded a "trojan" -- software that claimed to scan, but itself is a computer-virus.

Have you tried to use "System Restore" to go "back" in time to a checkpoint before your spouse installed/ran that software?

HOW CAN I UNISTALL FIX IT 9?


This came from the Avanquest Forum.

You can uninstall using the Add or Remove Programs component in the Windows Control Panel. This will initialize the Windows Installer to assist you with uninstalling.

If SystemSuite or Fix-It is not listed on the Add or Remove Programs list you can remove the program using the MicroSoft Installer CleanUp Utility. Please go to the following page and follow the steps on the web site. Run the utility and see if it detects SystemSuite or Fix-It and if it does then delete the entry. Once you've done this check the install directory located at C:Program FilesOntrackSystemSuite or Fix-It or VCOMSystemSuite or Fix-It and delete the folder if it still exists.

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;290301

Best of luck getting this removed...I've read many reviews and people really dont' like it too much.

Program!!


Here is a procedure (pasted below) which a Beta tester of CounterSpy developed having to remove and re-install various versions and running into the same problem you described. I would suggest reading through the discussion thread (CLICK HERE) before proceeding.

Hope this will FixYa!!!

____________________

Manual Uninstallation of CounterSpy 2.x

1.Open Task Manager and be sure none of these three are listed
a) SBCSSvc.exe (CP service)
b) SBCSTray.exe (tray icon)
CounterSpy.exe (CS main app)
If any are listed click "End Process"

2. Be sure the CS directory is gone. The standard location is C:\Program Files\Sunbelt Software\CounterSpy

3. Remove additional folders that may be located at these three places:
a) C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application\Data\Sunbelt Software
b) C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Application Data\Sunbelt Software
c) C:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data\Sunbelt Software

4. Run the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility. If anything is listed for Sunbelt CounterSpy, select and hit "remove".

5. Look in C:\Windows\Downloaded Installations and
C:\Program Files\Downloaded Installations
you should see one or more sub-folders with names like
{XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX} where the X's are random numbers. In each sub-folder will be an .msi file. Right click the .msi file and select properties. Look in the summary tab for indications that the .msi is an installer for Sunbelt CounterSpy. Delete the sub-folder, the one with all the numbers (do not delete the \Download directory folder)

6. Look in C:\Windows\Installer directory where you will find .msi files. Again, right-click each .msi and select properties. If any .msi files are Sunbelt CounterSpy, delete only those .msi files.

7. Look in C:\
if you have any {XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX} delete those folders.

8. Open Computer Management console utility (Control Panel-->Admin. Tools-->Computer Management) and select the Device Manager then click on View and select "Show hidden devices" . Expand the Non Plug and Play Drivers tree and scroll down until you find the SBHR device driver. Right-click on it and select uninstall.
The console will prompt you to reboot. Do so. If you don't find any SBHR device driver, there is no need to reboot.

9. You need to download a zip file at the bottom of my post. Follow the directions to be sure it is clean before you use it.

10. Check C:\Windows\System32 for the following 6 files and remove any if they are present:
a) SBAPIFS.sys
b) SBBD.exe
c) SBProt.sys
d) SBRC.dat
e) SBFC.dat
f) eSellerateEngine.dll

I also had a file SBProt.bak and asked if it was safe to remove; it was.

11. Check C:\Windows\System32\Drivers for the following three files and remove if any are present:
a) SBTEDrv.sys
b) SBHR.sys
c) SBAPIFS.sys

12. Last, if you have any Sunbelt CounterSpy desktop, tray or start menu icons remove them and reboot.
