How to remove SecuROM User Access Service (V7)

The Problem:-I would like to uninstall a service named "SecuROM User Access Service (V7)" which got installed together with Crashday demo (PC game). I have uninstalled the demo, but the service is still there and running until disabled it, but I would really like to remove from the system.

Resolution:-

Start >Run>Regedit>ok

Now Navigate to the following key:-

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\UserAccess7SecuROMUser Access Service (V7)

Delete it and reboot.

lol... its not spyware its attempting to protect software that cost millions to develop, did any of you guys check the help at secureroms website? very simple procedure...

To remove all SecuROM™ related files (except the DRM information) please follow the instructions below. Before you start the deinstallation, close all programs which are running in the background, especially be sure that no instance of the Windows Explorer is running.
Open the Windows command box by pressing and selecting the option. Now type 'cmd' (without 's) and press on the keyboard.
Please type enter the path to the protected executable, e.g. "C:\Program Files\My Game\game.exe"
Add the following parameter and hit : /uninstall
A dialog box will appear. To start the SecuROM™ deinstallation, press the button.
Note: These instructions will work only for applications protected with SecuROM™ version 7.24 or higher.
