Hello rawf23,

Be careful what spy programs you get and from where you get them.

The best way to do this is to go to the software manufacturer website and find out what the proper uninstall procedures are.

What are the names of these programs and where did you get them ?

 

Why do you call these "Hidden" programs? Are you saying that these programs do not show in Windows Add/Remove programs ?

 

You can start CCleaner. Then go to Tools > Uninstall You will see a list of all the programs that are installed.

Find the Program that you want to Uninstall and highlight that program in the list. CCleaner will use the uninstall program that the program software manufacturer provides. To do this you must highlight the program and select "Uninstall".

Do not "uninstall" any other programs other than the Spyware programs that you are talking about.

Reboot the computer after the "Uninstall" is complete and you have closed CCleaner.

 

If these programs will not "uninstall" then come back here.

 

Good luck,

 

:) davey

CCleaner can clean many unneeded things from your computer, but not spyware and other malware - that is not its goal.

 

Try Spybot and run a full scan on your computer; that should get rid of most spyware.

Hi all, I think rawr23 is talking about spy programs that keep tabs on people without their knowledge. Like maybe your kids or spouse.

 

These programs install in a stealth mode. I would follow daveys advise for removal, by checking with the software manufacturers website.

 

Get back with us for help, or to let us know how you did.
