Question about Webroot Spy Sweeper (spysweeper) for PC
This has been going on the past month. PC keeps telling me that my spysweeper has not run for so many days, but it won't let me do it manually either. It also tells me that I have 4 critical things that are off. When I bring the screen up to put them on it won't let me. Help....I'm not protected and this is a new computer. Best Buy put everything I needed in when I bought it.
Hey Kitty. My guess would be your subscription to spysweeper expired. I would not be horribly concerned with losing it. You can keep your computer secure for free.
The first way viruses and spyware infect your PC is through your browser. If you are not using firefox to surf the net I suggest you change over to it.
Next, let PC Pitstop do a scan of your PC. When the scan is finished it will tell you where your security holes are. And what you can do to improve your PC performance.
There are also free spyware programs on the web. Microsoft Windows Defender is one of the better Microsoft products and does a decent job against spyware. There are also spyware guard, spyware blaster, spybot search and destroy, adaware, and others.
Good luck and safe surfing.

SOURCE: webroot spysweeper won't sweep
i had the same problem getting also an error message when i would log in about a valid definition file and go to program option page to update the definition file, after trying fixes from others i found one that said to reboot computer and put in safe mode, then open spy sweeper in safe mode, everything was in large print and nothing was turned on, so i rebooted the computer again and this time when the screen came up came up normally and not in safe mode and most of all there was no error message, my spy sweeper is now opened and now it is sweeping like it is suppose to do i don't know who was the person that posted the resolution but thanks it works so everyone try it.
