    Hello,
    Some time ago, i installed "Super Antispyware" onto my computer. This was a free edition. After running the program, i decided i wanted to uninstall it. I used "Revo Uninstaller Pro", to remove the program entirely. However, there is two items on my desktop,which seems to be related to the "Super Antispyware" program, and will not uninstall. When i right click on one of the desktop items, a box appears, stating that the file is in use and cannot be deleted. Both items say the same thing. I have tried using the "uninstall programs", in the "Control Panel", but it is not listed.
    Can anyone advise me on the best way to remove these? I have included attachments to show the items on my desktop.
    Thank you.

    Hi thesnapman44,

    You can try deleting it with software such as Unlocker.

    Be careful when downloading/installing it though as the installer may try to sneak in other pieces of software that you don't want. In other words, do not click "Next" repeatedly before reading what you're agreeing to.
