will not go away (Spyware Program Removal)

I have spyware terminator installed and can not get rid of it.

When I go to remove programs and press to remove, it pops up that this program does not exist, but the icon lives at the bottom right of my computer screen, and pops up occasionally, to tell me of something or other.

How do I get around getting rid of something that says it is not there?

I also have webshots toolbar listed in programs, when I click yes to remove it, it just blinks, and is still there, unaffected by my attempt to get rid of it. Please help

Physically remove the programs.

Physically removing the programs doesn't finish the job. You need to run a registry cleaner to get references of them out.
I bought Registry Mechanic a few years ago. It does a great job.

ok. well if your like me and don't have money to spend on registry and spyware programs. What I would do it download Adaware.
http://www.lavasoftusa.com/products/ad_aware_free.php

There is also another free spyware program call SpyBot.

http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html

I run both of them. If one doesnt find it the other will.

Then there is also a registry clean called Crap Cleaner.

http://www.ccleaner.com/

What I would do is boot in safe mode. Run Adaware and then run CCleaner. That should take care of the problem. If it doesn't. Then try to remove the program in safe mode. The program listed above always took care of problems like that. give it a try.

Many spyware and virii CANNOT be removed if you boot the machine normally, or even in safe mode. UBCD4win is a bootable disk that has all the tools you could want. Download the disc image, burn it to a CD, boot the machine with it, and run ALL the spyware scanners on it.

impossible

It would take a miracle for me to burn a cd from the link you provided I am a low life bricklayer not a computer wiz.

I guess I will have to learn to live with what I have and hope it does not get worse Thanks for your help

Click on Downloads.
Click on one of the Mirror numbers.
It does not say you HAVE to make a donation.
Very simple.

To burn the CD you use Nero or Sonic, etc. to create a CD using an image file.
Very simple.

boot

I was able to down load but could not find out how to burn, after downloading this boot win thing, I was unable to do anything with it it was only available for five minutes after a 25 minute download.

The boot win down load was not explanatory in an of it self, it would just put up a chart that would show mile file when click upon but nothing else was offered especially not how to get rid of anything

I suggest you take the computer to a repair shop and have them look at it.
