How can I remove “Spybot search and destroy” software completely from my computer?

Question by EyeSmart-Doc: How can I remove “Spybot search and destroy” software completely from my computer?
I have PC-cillin internet security software, but I can not update it because it is detecting Spybot SD software on my computer. When I go to the “remove programs” in windows, Spybot SD shows up, but when I try to remove it, it says it doesn’t exist. HELP? What the heck is going on?

    What it means is that there are still registery entries on your computer and simple ADD& REMOVE Programs doesn’t get rid of them

    I had the same problem. I downloaded the Revo Uninstaller freeware utility to remove Spybot from my system.

    It is a great piece of software.
    Try a reinstall of PC-cillin internet security or replace it with Kaspersky IS (http://www.kaspersky.com)
