I was sweeping my computer and the sweep froze when nearly finished and I can't get it to turn off or do anything.


Try pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del, clicking task manager, then the processes tab and right click the one for Spy Sweeper and click end process. Then start the program again. If all else fails, try restarting your computer. If this happens every time you run the sweep, uninstall and reinstall the program.

Spy sweeper


In which place you click on the icon of sweep.
In the menu, on the screen or directly from the directory where you can find the sweep.

There are all kind of possibilities.

Problem with the registry.
File is moved
Version expired.

Probably the easiest way is to reinstall sweep.

Won't sweep


you may need to manually update the program by going to the Options tab and click Update. If you receive a dialog box stating, "Continue, Shut Down, Restart Program" or something of the sort, click Continue using Program and it will update the definitions. then restart computer and sweep. If this doesn't work then your program may need to be reinstalled with a valid subscription key.

Spy Sweeper won't sweep


I have seen this problem a couple times. The only fix that seems to work is uninstalling Spysweeper and then reinstall it again. If you go to start>Programs>webroot you will see an uninstaller. Run that, reboot the computer, then reinstall again from your install disc.

Webroot spysweeper won't sweep


Webroot has a main page where one of the tabs across the the top is 'Shields' Click on that tab and set all shields on except the e-mail one. That one makes a mess on Outlook Express. I also dropped back a few versions since the latest one kept yakking about a shortage of drive space when there was no problem. As to alerts the program will give an ' Alert' when it thinks that a sweep is overdue. I just click on 'sweep later' and minimize the alert.There are also some good anti spyware 'freebies such as AVG and SpyBot Search and destroy

Can't get my spy sweeper to work


Yes, this seems to be a common problem with SpySweeper.
This may not be a solution, but why not try http://housecall65.trendmicro.com/

It scans your PC online, and its free. I thought I removed all spyware/malware etc from my PC using my regular anti-virus and spyware detect software (which I use almost daily). I just tried this online yesterday and it detected 2 Malware and 3 adware programs still on my PC, plus a lot of other stuff..

Try it. Its free after all :)
