Do CTRL-ALT-Delete, under processes, end the processes which refer to SpySweeper.
Go to run and type in msconfig. In the startup tab, un-check any reference to SpySweeper.
Then go to the Control Panel and unistall any versions of SpySweeper.
Then re-boot and re-install your SpySweeper.


Good Luck, Joe

Webroot spy sweeper with antivirus has gone completely blank. I can't click on any buttons and it has a white, blank screen; it won't load either. I have Windows Vista and i dont think it's expired, yet....


It sounds like your Webroot Spysweeper With AntiVirus Program crashed.

1. Click on CTRL+ALT+ DEL keys (All at once) to bring up the task manager.

2. Under the Applications tab>Click on webroot spysweeper to highlight it. Then click on end task.

3. I would suggest you uninstall and re-install it.

4. Go to Start>Control Panel>Programs>Uninstall a Program

5. Scroll down thru all Programs until you find WebRoot Spysweeper. Click it to highlight it- then click uninstall.

6. When it is finished uninstalling-click on Start>Restart pc.

7. After you log in to your pc>re-install webroot spysweeper.

8. After installation is complete, reboot your pc. This should fix the problem.

Webroot 6.1 Antivirus/SpySweeper won't open after install


Dear User,

Though Webroot 6.1 Antivirus works fine on Windows 7, but its Spyweeper (anti spywear), is not seems to be compatible with Windows 7.

You can look for the version of webrrot that is fully compatible with windows 7.
OR
You can go to the free versions of Antivirus availables for Windows 7 (as AVG Free).

Thanks

Remove webroot spy sweep from my vista hp. I tried to renew my Trend Micro Antivirus, and now I'm showing NO Antivirus on my HP. Called Trend Micro and was told to remove Webroot. 09 version has spy ware...


If going to control panel and look for the program in "uninstall program", then try actually going to where the Webroot Spysweet is installed.

For example, and most likely, it is installed in C:\Program Files\Webroot Spysweep

AFter finding the folder, delete it and any other files related to this program.

Hope this helps!

Cant update my spysweeper


Sometimes anyantivirus is reported as a virus code for another antivirus,
  • If any other antivirus is installed, please uninstall it.
  • if your spysweeper is expired, please obtain new version
  • uninstall spysweeper, clean registry, and reinstall it.
  • use proper authentication, sometimes administrator installs the SW, the user is not able to update it.
Goodluck

Removing webroot spy sweeper


This worked for me. Search the registry for webroot (start->run->type 'regedit'); in regedit, find 'webroot'. Delete the folder that has webroot (it has sub-folder 'spy sweeper'). McAfee should finish installing.

Error ''installation in progress''


Hi there,

Most laptops come with some sort of antivirus software, even if it's just a trial. Open Task Manager, and click on the Processes tab, have a look down the list and see if you have anything on there that may look like an antivirus, i.e. Norton, Symantecs, McAffee, Avast. I also would have thought that it would be a .exe

So you may just be looking for Setup.exe. Right-click and stop the process and try again.

Hope that helps
