Once SpyHunter Uninstall window appears, it will ask you if you’re sure you wish to remove SpyHunter. Click Yes to start the uninstallation process. This will start the uninstallation process.

Spyhunter

Don't know much about Spyhunter.

When I see a program that still appears to run after using the programs built in uninstaller or add/ remove programs or a third party software removal utility what I usually do is:

Reinstall it to get a clean copy to remove.

Reboot.

Stop the program from running. Sometimes by right clicking the icon in the notification area and clicking "Exit". Sometimes by checking running processes. Sometimes by disabling it's startup entry and rebooting.

Check to see if it installed a service. If the service is running - disable it.

Then try uninstalling it again.

Remove previously used icons

Hi,

So it's not running and you want to remove the icon from the list of previously used icons.

There's a tutorial here:

Notification Area Icons - Reset

Note: Requires a reboot.
