If SUPERAntiSpyware is installed and running, make sure that you exit it before you attempt to uninstall.
To exit SUPERAntiSpyware, right-click the SUPERAntiSpyware system tray icon (the orange/brown bug running near your clock) and select "Exit" from the menu.
After you run the Windows Installer CleanUp installer, "Windows Install CleanUp" will appear in your Start menu's list of installed Programs. Run the utility. Select each reference to SUPERAntiSpyware FREE or Professional in the product list displayed by the utility, and click the "Remove" button. Follow the instructions, making sure to reboot after the uninstall process has completed. You may have to run the CleanUp utility multiple times to uninstall all instances of SUPERAntiSpyware.
