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.
Erase the software in its entirety and reinstall it again
If this problem persists, you may need to clean out your pc of any software corruption ( I recomend downloading Tune-up utilites) and scan your computer for viruses and malicious software (going to Kapersky.com and download Internet Security and run it)
This should remove all software issues if the initial reinstallation of Spysweeper doesnt work
Yea I rekon it's a virus too... lol damned annoying. You need to completely uninstall it, "Add/Remove Programs..and get yourself Winpatrol, it is the best...here is link http://www.winpatrol.com/
There is a free version thats GR8,
The best antivirus/malware fighters:
OR get HouseCall again it's free and works.
you probably have viruses in your computer. and also spyware. you need software such as adaware or spysweeper and any good antivirus and let them scan your whole system though this will cost you. the free and sure thing to do is reformat.
get rid of spy sweeper and get a program call deep freeze there is a trail version here http://www.faronics.com/html/deepfreeze.asp this application will also let you get rid of your antivirus program, you see antivirus program's can only protect you from what allready is and not what s comming. with this program you get a virus simply turn off and on the computer and wala virus gone.
it could be that you have a virus on your computer. i typed the error code into yahoo search engine and several things came up. cluttered hard drive. and or virus. try going to start menu, programs, accessories, system tools, disk clean up. check the boxes that need to be cleaned. then tonight before you go to bed do a disk defragment it will take a long time do run this part. in the morning check it and see if you can download the messenger. if that doesnt work then try to use a virus software or an adware removal program. spysweeper is good and you can now get their virus protection too.
Your SpySweeper program functions by viewing incoming programs requesting access to your computer, referencing them to a built-in definitions file that updates regularly, and granting permission or red-flagging potential spyware programs. So, the definitions file is very important for the program to work properly.
I recently had a customer's computer display the same error message, and the way I was able to work-around it and make the SpySweeper program work properly was to uninstall it completely, ensure that there are no other anti-virus programs that might interfere with SpySweeper's install (if you have norton for example, manualy disable it for the duration of the install), and download the most current version from the internet rather than your disks that came with it.
Now, there could be other things involved, such as a malicious program interfering with how SpySweeper functions. In that scenario, restoring your OS is usually the fastest method of restoring functionality to your machine. Hopefully it is not a virus infection, but if you run out of ideas to resolve the issue a restore is a simple fix that guarantees success.
