Was this by using the "Add/Remove Programs" control panel, or by manually
deleting the files?  (It should the the former).

Is Outlook closed when you try this?  What error message do you get when you
try to delete?  Is this manually deleting the files, or using the control

The installation should have created a log file.  This is in the temp
directory (C:\Documents and Settings\{username}\Local Settings\Temp with XP)
and is called "spambayes1.log".  If you could send us that, it would help
figure out what is going on.  In addition, what version of Outlook and
Windows is he using?
