Webroot and spysweeper 2011 no longer puts cookies into quarentee section


I have the same problem: Webroot 2011 no longer detects and quarantines cookies. If you go to the Webroot Support page and type "no longer quarantine cookies", it offers the generated issue: "You want to know why Internet Explorer cookies are not detected in a scan"; to which it offers the following answer: "A recent Microsoft security update (KB 2559049) [...check your Windows updater, I got this security update on my computer on August 10th...] prevents Webroot security programs from identifying spy cookies on systems where the update is applied. Although these cookies cannot be detected, your core antivirus and anti-spyware protection is not compromised. Viruses and spyware are still blocked. Webroot engineers are actively investigating options to restore spy cookie detections and any solutions will be provided in an upcoming release." (This statement is not dated; I am looking at it now, August 28th, 2011, on their Webroot Support page.) I have Windows Vista operating system and Webroot 2011 version 7.0.11.21. My Webroot Antivirus with Spy Sweeper hasn't swept up anything in scans in the last couple of weeks, but it did block an internet site last night; so I think it's still working. Hope this helps!

All Webroot products as of August 2011 were replaced by Webroot SecureAnywhere, which resolves all issues with prior products including SpySweeper and Webroot Antivirus. Existing users should visit the Webroot site for a free upgrade to SecureAnywhere.

Webroot anti-virus not upgrading and prompting to restart every time I click on the icon.


I would recommend you uninstall and reinstall the software. It is useless as it is.

I would recommend you uninstall IE8 until CA gets this fixed. Or you can dump CA which IMO is not the best paid for Antivirus software and either buy a great one like Karparski, http://www.kaspersky.com/ or Webroot. http://www.webroot.com/En_US/index.html You can also get a great one free in Avast Home Edition. http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html I run the free version of Avast and love it. Be careful with the download of Avast and only use that link of go here http://download.cnet.com/Avast-Home-Edition/3000-2239_4-10019223.html?tag=mncol;pop and get it. There is a malicious copycat calling itself Avast.

I have a subsription with McAfee and I cannot download the software before having this webroot spy sweeper removed.I cannot find it on my computer and never had a subscription with this webroot spy...


first uninstall the webroot spy sweeper through the following steps.
1.click start 
2.go to control pannel
3.open 'add or remove program'
4.a window will open wait for some time until the list is populated

5 i)in that list find webroot spy sweeper and click remove 
   go through the uninstall wizard and finish the uninstallation process

5 ii)if you didn't find webroot spy sweeper there then it can be a virus
You need to download a program called MalwareBytes because that searces your entire computer
, finds the virus and completely destroys it.

http://www.download.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html

Click the green 'download now' button (don't worry - this is free) and once you've downloaded it, got the updates and done a system sweep which takes a long time but it's worth it, you should be fine. It also solves the desktop, wallpaper and screensaver hijack, too.

6. restart your computer

7.open mycomputer click search and do a search for webroot spy sweeper
delete all the files and folders regarding webroot spy sweeper

8.now download mcafee before installing mcafee uninstall MalwareBytes and restart your pc
because at a time only one antivirus software should be used

i think this solution will help you 
if the problem is not fixed please inform i will suggest some other ways
