Question about Webroot Spy Sweeper (spysweeper) for PC
I went to install newly received Webroot Spy Sweeper. Computer said I had newer edition already installed. Can you confirm? Can I return for a refund?
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.

Tips for a great answer:
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.
