Question about Webroot Spy Sweeper (spysweeper) for PC
Everytime I start any kind of on-line game (World of warcraft, Vangaurd, etc.) I get an error message that webroot firewall has to close.. Then, the game will not be able to connect to the internet. Explorer and Firewfox work fine, just the games won't load! I need of help!
Um obviously your security system recognizes your games as a threat. so it will not run it unless you allow it in the firewall setting

I dunno if this is the right answer, but when I had SpySweeper, it detected some of my games, like WoW, as mal-ware and blocked them. I tried everything to fix it but in the end, the only thing that worked was uninstalling the software. One of the things (I think) that sets SpySweeper off, is that WoW uses that game launcher and because of the nature of how it works, it can appear to be malicious, when actually it's a GOOD thing. It checks for key loggers and such before letting you into the game so you, hopefully, won't get hacked. (the authenticator is really good for that too. I use the launcher, an extremely sick password, plus the authenticator... if I ever get hacked, I'm kickin Blizzard's ***. *rofl*)
Good luck! =)
