Re: 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.

Program will not start

Try to Uninstall the program with Revo uninstaller and then install it Fresh. Also make certain your Graphics Card is up to date with the current drivers and that it is capable of managing that program. If a Computer is Old the BIOs may not be updated and accept the commands necessary to operate the program.

How to remove a program,that is not on the "ADD & REMOVE" list

Try running the program first and seeing if there is any option to remove it that way. If there is not, then you will have to delete all the program data manually.
Enter the C:// drive and look for a file called Program Files. Look for the folder with the name of the program or the program's publisher. If you find the program's, delete the folder and if your find the publisher, enter that folder and delete the program's folder. Some newer systems have Program Files (x86) or (x64), so check there too.
Also, turn on viewing of hidden files. Depending on your operating system, there are multiple ways to do this, google "Viewing hidden files in (insert operating system)". After these are revealed, go back to the C:// drive and enter Documents and Settings, followed by your username. A folder should now be seen which is a lighter color and looks different from others name Application Data. Enter this hidden file and delete the Program folder or enter publisher then delete the program folder.
I hope this helps and apologize if it does not,

Program shuts down when starting if for the 2nd time.

The game must have been corrupted.
The only way is to uninstall it then reinstall it again.
Also make sure that your pc meets the system requirements to run the game. Free up your disk space too, before you reinstall the game.

I want to disable or uninstall the cyberlink power cinema...uninstall doesn't work...I am tired of it starting up everytime I wipe down the computer

Hello... Buddy! I have a suggestion for you that you reinstall the cyberlink power cinema software using the same disk. When the installation starts, this will ask for repair/reinstall or romove options. choose remove option and take step forwand and if it fails to remove, re-run the setup file and choose to repair/reinstall, when it is done successfully, you may then uninstall it from add/remove programs in controls panel. or program & features option for vista/windows 7. or uninstall it from program menu.

My laptop its new purchased its acer 4810t always hang,,cud u pls help i need software to installed so that this problem will be solve,,please help me.

Most of the cases are due to insufficient RAM or by spy-ware.
Minimum amount of RAM for Vista OS 2GB for XP 1GB.

If these criteria is OK with that. then uninstall junk software's and junk data from it. Disable start-up items. If you don't know how to then install CCleaner from downloads section.

After downloading clean junk data and registry with it and disable unknown applications.

This may helps you increase the performance of the laptop or desktop.

Hope this will be useful.

Thanks & Regards
