Cannot Uninstall

I am trying to uninstall Super Antispyware and I am getting the error "error reading uninstall data". I think I tried to uninstall this morning and it didn't finish. But does anyone know what to do now. Thanks.

Open Task Manager and make sure it isn't lised in processes. If it is highlight it and click End Process in lower right corner of Task Man.
Then it should delete. You can't delete a running process usually.

It might be a good idea to click "Show processes for all users" in lower left corner of Task Manager IF it isn't listed above- just to be sure.
If shown in neither place you may need to go with Stalkers suggestion or re install and turn off the process if it shows then try uninstalling again.

It was in task manager and I did end process. Nothing happened. I installed revo uninstaller and it gave an error message and wouldn't delete. How can I get rid of this thing. I have had trouble with the computer when I installed it the other day. Thanks.

What I do when a program won't uninstall correctly is reinstall it for the purpose of uninstalling it. This almost always works if nothing else does.
