Question about Webroot Spy Sweeper (spysweeper) for PC
I recently purchased a new laptop which came with Vista Home Premium 32-bit OS pre-installed. Before connecting to the Internet I installed Webroot Spy Sweeper Antivirus and Antispyware with desktop firewall. No problems were encountered during the installation process.
The problem I now face is when I try to run Spy Sweeper 5.5 a windows pop-up comes up saying this is incompatible with this version of Windows.
I have done a bit of my own investigative work on the Internet and it seems a Windows update (KB943302 in particular) hard-blocks Webroot Spy Sweeper 5.5. I do not want to disable any critical windows update without fully knowing the implications (not sure how do it in vista even if I wanted to do it). What does Microsoft got against Webroot Spy Sweeper anyways?
Can you please advise as to what is blocking it and why/how I can get it to work with this stupid OS.
