For a clean uninstall of the SpywareBlaster program:

To shut down SpywareBlaster:

  • Open SpywareBlaster and select "Disable All Protection"

  • Close SpywareBlaster

  • Close the AutoUpdate program, if open. To check, use CTRL-ATL-DELETE:

    • Hold down the CTRL and ALT keys and at the same time hit the DELETE key once to open the Windows Task Manager
    • Click on the "Processes" tab in the Windows Task Manager (you can sort the list alphabetically by clicking on the "Image Name" header)
    • Look for a program called sbautoupdate.exe
    • If you find sbautoupdate.exe, click on it and then on "End Process"
    • If you also see a program called spywareblaster.exe, use "End Process" on it too


To uninstall SpywareBlaster (once it is shut down):

  • Open the Control Panel (click on START in the lower left corner of your screen, then on CONTROL PANEL)

  • Open ADD OR REMOVE PROGRAMS

  • Search for the SpywareBlaster entry and select REMOVE - this should uninstall it

  • Reboot.


If you can close down SpywareBlaster but the uninstaller is unable to do its job (perhaps due to previous incomplete uninstalls), you may need to download and install SpywareBlaster over-the-top of your old installation. This will give you a good copy of the uninstaller, and you should then be able to follow the steps above and uninstall completely.
