Webcleaner does not take into full account the problems associated with
Windows pathnames containing the space character. For example, if you
install it under the "Program Files" directory, the created uninstall
script fails because it receives "too many arguments". It is because it
thinks the given pathname argument is actually two, as it contains an
unescaped space character.
From memory, it looked like this:
"c:\program files\python24\removewebcleaner.exe" -u c:\program files\[etc]
The part after the -u is not quoted. To get the uninstall to work it has
to be quoted. Also, it won't be a problem if you don't install under
"Program files" or similar.
This may also cause problems elsewhere. I couldn't get the proxy to work
for me, but that might have been for other reasons (it never connected
anywhere as far as I could tell, though the config worked). I will try
again with more time.

Thanks for pointing that out. I never noticed this bug since on my test
system I have installed Python into "c:\python24".
I will check a bug fix into CVS soon. Unfortunately there is not really
a workaround for this. You can only try to reinstall Python and
WebCleaner into a directory without spaces.
