Webroot may provide you with a free upgrade if you recently purchased your software.

All customers who purchased software from Webroot Software are eligible for free replacement and software updates within one year of their original date of purchase (or the purchase of a registration renewal).

Fill out the form at this link (http://www.webroot.com/updates/redownload/request) and after webroot verifies your info they should e-mail you a download link and keycode if you purchased within the last year.

Although in my humble opinion Spy sweeper is a bit of a resource hog and does not provide the best protection against malware/Spyware. I would recommend checking out malware bytes Anti-malware (they have both a free and a paid PRO version that has automatic protection). It is much more effective, cheaper, and your pc will run faster with this then spysweeper.

You can download it from www.malwarebytes.org.

I just purchased Spysweeper last week. It was working fine, and now it sits in "loading" mode without fully loading. I also had Microsoft Security Essentials (free) running, so uninstalled it...


Thank you, and I hope this helps...

There was a compatibility problem that existed between Webroot's Spy Sweeper program and Microsoft's Vista operating system. The issue occurred after an update Microsoft automatically delivered to Vista machines using its automatic windows updating function on January 8, 2008. The bug was fixed on February 12th, 2008. If you have automatic updates set on your Vista machine, the bug will have been corrected by now automatically.
Other issues may be: Check for firewall issues if you still have problems. Temporarily switch the firewall off and see if performance improves. Add exemptions to your firewall if you find it's the cause. SpySweeper.exe, SpySweeperUI.exe, ssu.exe and WrConsumerService.exe should be added and allowed to access the internet.

Error states Spy Sweeper is not compatible with 64-bit operating systems.


This from the Webroot Web site on supported operating systems:

Windows Vista® (32-bit versions of Home Basic, Premium, Business, or Ultimate), Vista SP1 (32- and 64 bit versions of (Home Basic, Premium, Business, or Ultimate).

So, assuming you have bought the latest Spysweeper (and assuming you have Vista 64 bit) , then you need to upgrade your Vista to SP1.

Webroot spysweeper installation problem


Dear Wlutke,
As far as I know spysweeper works good only in Windows XP not in Vista. You contact spysweeper customer care and tell your problem. Each software has some trail period. So if you were not satisfied with the product you can return it and get your money back.
