    Default Uninstall instructions

    Here's a link to a Spybot Knowledgebase page about uninstalling & reinstalling: https://www.safer-networking.org/support/knowledgebase/
    Hope that helps.

    `To fix this issue, please delete the file "Post Windows 10 Spybot-install" from your Desktop.

    Please also delete the folder:
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\AV\Spybot - Search and Destroy


    These were included in our updates for users upgrading to Windows 10.

    During the upgrade process, Spybot is likely to be uninstalled. It can be reinstalled by running this file, which will survive the upgrade process.

    If you do not plan to upgrade to Windows 10, these can be deleted. If you need to, you can get this file back by reinstalling Spybot.

    You can also uninstall Spybot completely before the upgrade and reinstall it after.
