Just open task MGR and stop it from running, then update and restart,, If you surf the web and are on a lot of free sites you should get rid of AVG,,,# 2 is kaspersky for best,, and AVG is #10 I stake my life on this claim no matter what anyone says,if they say different
ask them what virus's and trojans and rootkits and worms they used for testing.

    I wanted to give the 2009 top anti-virus software.
    #1 and the rest in order.

    #1- G-Data
    2- Avira
    3-Kaspersky
    4-Nod32-eset
    5-Norton 2009
    6-Avast
    7- F-secure
    8-Ikarus

    These are so close, they are in the 98%-100% for top software.

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

My sweeper program does not work even though I have paid for a new subscription


You may have to go to the help menu for the program and do a repair or update. The subscription renewal may have changed codes and it needs to update from old subscription which would of had an expiration date.

Compatability issue


On Feb. 12, 2008, Microsoft released an update that fixed the recent compatiblity issues between Windows Vista and Webroot Antivirus/Spy Sweeper that were a result of a previous Windows Jan. 8, 2008 update.
Recommended Fix:
To fix this issue, update your copy of Windows Vista with the latest updates available as of 2/12/2008. For many users, Windows Vista will update automatically at its next scheduled time, but the update is also available as a manual download. See below for instructions on how to update Windows Vista.
We also recommend updating your copy of Webroot Antivirus/Spy Sweeper. The latest version does not experience any compatibility issues and it is generally recommended that you update your software to the latest version in order to ensure maximum security and protection of your PC.

Previously owned Webroot Spy Sweeper


It doesn't really matter which version of Spy Sweeper is on the installation disk, as long as the subscription associated with its product key hasn't expired. Spy Sweeper will immediately update to the current version after you install it.

The clock starts on your one-year subscription when you enter the product key during installation. If it's a 3-machine license, then the clock starts on all 3 copies when the first one is installed.

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.
