Question about Webroot Spy Sweeper (spysweeper) for PC
I just installed the Webroot Spy Sweeper with AntiVirus. I also went and updated it on line. It says I do not have AntiVirus protection. Is there something else I need to do?
Spy Sweeper is for spyware and that is not the same as anti virus software..If you do not have anti virus software, you should consider a getting one of the more popular types such as McAfee or Trend PC Cillin.these are two readily available types .. It is good to have both spyware and virus protection and they are not the same.. Hope this helps you..

The Windows Installer Service is required to install Spy Sweeper/Webroot AntiVirus 5.8 or Spy Sweeper/Webroot AntiVirus/Webroot Internet Security Essential
6.1. However, by Microsoft's design, the Windows Installer in not
available in Safe Mode. On rare occasions Safe Mode installation is
still desirable, so Webroot has engineered a method to make this
possible. This method uses a file called "SafeCore.exe".
the installation is performed using "Safe Mode with Networking" and an
active internet connection is available, the Version Guard feature of
our installer will automatically download and run SafeCore.exe. No
action on the part of the user is required. Otherwise SafeCore.exe will
need to manually be placed in the same folder as the standard Webroot
if the installer file is already on the Windows desktop, copy
SafeCore.exe to the desktop as well, and then run the Webroot
AntiVirus/Spy Sweeper/Webroot Internet Security Essentials 5.8/6.0
installer to begin the installation process).
obtain a copy of SafeCore.exe, please first check what version of the
Webroot software you are trying to install. Right click on the installer
and choose Properties, and then click on the Version tab. A File version will be listed.
If the file version is different than the two listed above, please contact Webroot Technical Support for an alternative option.
the computer you are trying to install on does not have a network
connection, it may be required to transfer this file from one machine to
another using removable media such as a USB drive or CD-ROM.
If installing Spy Sweeper/Webroot AntiVirus/Webroot Internet Security Essentials 6.0, the Backup Component may not install completely in Safe Mode since it contains components that require the Windows Installer Service to install completely. You will need to re-run the installation in normal mode to activate the Backup component.
