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.

I want to uninstall spy sweeper but I can't. I get a runtime error. How can I uninstall?


Hi Friend,

Close the SpySweeper Program
  • If SpySweeper isn't closed properly, it may not uninstall completely. Click the SpySweeper icon on the Windows toolbar, then choose the "Exit" command to close it. Hold down the "Control," "Alt" and "Delete" keys at the same time to open the Task Manager. Select "Processes" and look for a process called "spysweeper.exe." If you find it, choose it and then click "End Process." Next, look for a process called "WRSSSDK.exe" and follow the same procedure to close it if you find it.

  • Uninstall SpySweeper
  • Go to the Windows "Start" menu from the toolbar, then choose "Control Panel." Locate the "Add/Remove Program" option and choose it. Once the list of available programs is populated, find and select SpySweeper. Click "Uninstall" and let Windows complete the uninstall process. You will get a message when it is done.

  • Test the Computer
  • Reboot your computer, and once it has restarted, look for the SpySweeper icon on the toolbar. If it is absent, hold down "Control," "Alt" and "Delete" to open the Task Manager. Under "Processes," look for "spysweeper.exe" and "WRSSSDK.exe." If the uninstall was successful, you will not find them. If they are running, end them and go through the uninstall process again

    SPYWARE DRIVER ISNT WORKING WHAT DO I DO?


    go to add-remove and uninstall the program make sure the directory is also deleted on your HD because if you don't the problem will more than likely reoccur then reinstall it, a lot of programs create files during install and if one gets corrupted it might not be removed at uninstall leaving the problem in place.

    SBAMSvc.ex program hogs cpu time


    It's an anti-spyware program. I've heard of lots of problems with that particular one.

    I would go into safe-mode and uninstall it myself.
    Just tap on the F8 keys as your pc is booting up and when the menu appears, use the arrow keys to select safe mode and press enter twice. If you are prompted to select a user, select your username.

    Once in safe-mode go to "Start" then "Control Panel" then click the "Add/Remove Programs" and uninstall it from there.

    Hope this helps and good luck:)

    I have a subsription with McAfee and I cannot download the software before having this webroot spy sweeper removed.I cannot find it on my computer and never had a subscription with this webroot spy...


    first uninstall the webroot spy sweeper through the following steps.
    1.click start 
    2.go to control pannel
    3.open 'add or remove program'
    4.a window will open wait for some time until the list is populated

    5 i)in that list find webroot spy sweeper and click remove 
       go through the uninstall wizard and finish the uninstallation process

    5 ii)if you didn't find webroot spy sweeper there then it can be a virus
    You need to download a program called MalwareBytes because that searces your entire computer
    , finds the virus and completely destroys it.

    http://www.download.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html

    Click the green 'download now' button (don't worry - this is free) and once you've downloaded it, got the updates and done a system sweep which takes a long time but it's worth it, you should be fine. It also solves the desktop, wallpaper and screensaver hijack, too.

    6. restart your computer

    7.open mycomputer click search and do a search for webroot spy sweeper
    delete all the files and folders regarding webroot spy sweeper

    8.now download mcafee before installing mcafee uninstall MalwareBytes and restart your pc
    because at a time only one antivirus software should be used

    i think this solution will help you 
    if the problem is not fixed please inform i will suggest some other ways
