    A short guideline how to install a new version of SpyCop in case you have already installed a previous version.


    Actually this process of upgrading your existing version, is already described at the SpyCop-site:
    http://www.spycop.com/faq.htm#Downloading and Updating SpyCop

    So I only have to quote from there:


    Q. I download and install a new version, but the old version still remains.

    A. This is the main reason for our recommendation to uninstall and completely remove any old versions before upgrading. Here are step by step instructions for upgrading:

    1. Take note of your Name/Serial combination in Help, About.
    2. Completely uninstall the old version.
    3. Restart your computer.
    4. Use Windows Explorer to manually delete any remaining SpyCop files, if any.
    5. Download the new version of the software.
    6. Install the new version.
    7. Run the new version and enter your existing registration data.
