    I want to uninstall Spyguard but there is no uninstall file.
    That's the message I get when I go to the uninstall program in the Control panel.
    Can anybody help? Thank you.

    There are a lot of programs that use variations on the name "SpyGuard". Can you confirm which one you have installed? Maybe show a screen image of what program windows and icons it has?

    "Javacool Software's SpywareGuard" is the one that is supported in this forum. Here's a link to its webpage:

    http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareguard.html

    If that is the program you are referring to, you could down the program again from that webpage. Install it. And then run the uninstall option, which should be there following a fresh install.

    We also have a thread here about forcing an uninstall of it, which includes a registry file that can be used to disable SpywareGuard if it is already running:

    If you have one of the many rogue/spyware infections that use variations on the name SpyGuard, the newest one being called "SpywareGuard2008" - then those are not associated with Javacool, and the above removal won't help.
