    It is possible that if you have Spybot S&D’s TeaTimer (or a similar program) enabled it might interfere with removal depending on any registry changes that may have taken place.

    To disable TeaTimer:
    • Open Spybot>click on Mode>check Advanced Mode
    • Check yes in the warning window that will pop up.
    • Click Tools in bottom left hand corner.
    • Click on Resident icon in the Tools menu.
    • Uncheck the box next to Resident TeaTimer (Protection of all-over system settings) active.

    Close SpyBot-S&D

    Remind yourself to turn teatimer back on later.

    Run your anti virus program.

    Other than that I'd recommend you follow the procedure as I posted to you here:
