    I have been using Spybot search & destroy 1.4 beta 2.
    When I installed updates it ceased to work properly saying a scan was in progress and then dissapearing.I decided to remove it and re install but got the message "C/Program Files\Spybot-Search & Destroy \unins000.dat"does not exist.Cannot uninstall.
    I tried add and remove programmes and got the same message.
    Can anyone help?

    Rather than uninstalling it, try to reinstall it over the top of itself. Spybot S&D will then hopefully work or at least have enough information to uninstall itself.

    thanks will try re-install but it does specifically say you should un install before replacing it with a new version.Will report progress.
    No I didn't know that 1.4 was out but I do now thanks.
