Question about Webroot Spy Sweeper (spysweeper) for PC

Spy Sweeper won't sweep after subscription renewal and upgrade to 5.5

I'm running Windows XP, Zone Alarm and Norton Anti-Virus.
After renewing my subscription to Spy Sweeper (which I never had a problem with before) and upgrading to Webroot's latest version, it says "installation was damaged. Please reinstall" Also says "4 critical shields are OFF" and "vulnerable". Won't perform a sweep.

If you have purchased the renewal for Norton Antivirus you van click on renew now and enter the renewal code that you have recived in the e-mail of the purchase.

Message says my subscription has expired? I purchased Internet Security from Nortons on 12/7/07 why has it expired? It appars I am no longer protected and do not understand why this is.


Most of the Norton antivirus comes with one year subscription. date u mentioned here seems like more then 1 year old. That's why it says expired
If you dont want to spend any more money on antivirus then uninstall this one and download AVG from this site. this is really good antivirus for free and good for ever.

Webroot spy sweeper


I too have Trend PC Cillin ( anti-virus ) and Webroot Spy sweeper... I schedule sweeps at different times so there is no overlap or conflicts.. I am running windows XP Pro ( i do not like Vista... even thou I may not have any choice at some point) but I have not had any conflicts or lockups between them.. There may be some other underlying issue with your system... For what it's worth...

Norton renewal subscription


the problem lies in the registry uninstall norton 360 then re-install this clears the reg then try your key again.

my personal View Don't use norton 360 as it will slow your system down use Kespersky Internet security this is the best one out and also use avg virus program when you switch to kaspesky internet security then remove avg which you can get a free version.

Can't renew my Norton subscription online


If you're a home user I would suggest uninstalling Norton as you have an old version and install AVG Anti Virus and Zone Alarm firewall. These are both free for home users and have more modern engines.

You should also notice a speed improvement on your PC as Norton products can be quite rescource hungry.

Andy

another possibility is get you money back and download a good free tool called spybot search and destroy, and if your realy interested in anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-malware, etc., you dont need to pay a stinkin' dime to anyone, there a few very good free programs that will do the job. write back if you want the links!

Spy sweeper not working


1- Install using this serial: SSDC-ONLN-AAAA-NNNL-NINC

Then

2- Go into the C:\Program Files\Webroot\Spy Sweeper

Then

3- Right click the "install.dat" file-->go to Properties--> at the bottom check the boxes "read-only" and "hidden"-->then click Apply

And finally....

4- Run SpySweeperFix.v1.1.exe

Allow SpySweeperFix.v1.1.exe to run on the next Windows start up, this gives you the definition update till 2020, otherwise, you'll just get till 2006!

Hope this helps, if not, post back.
