Hi there
go to the control panel, add/remove programs or programs and features in Vista, un-install it from there.
If you want to find it manually its in c:\program files or c:\ program data.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!!

CAN'T FIND UNINSTALL FILE FOR SPY SWEEPER. Is causing conflicts with Trend Micro


Have you looked in the Spy Sweeper folder, most probably C:\Program Files\Webroot\Spy Sweeper and looked for the uninstaller - unins000.exe

You could always search for this file through Start>Search, select all files and folders and type "unins000.exe". It should find the file, this is the uninstaller, just double click.

You could also start in Safe Mode (restart computer and hit F8 when computer first starts) and delete the webroot folder C:\Program Files\Webroot\ . Do NOT try to delete the Program Files folder...

Good luck! Let me know if you need further help. I will check back tomorrow.

I have a subsription with McAfee and I cannot download the software before having this webroot spy sweeper removed.I cannot find it on my computer and never had a subscription with this webroot spy...


first uninstall the webroot spy sweeper through the following steps.
1.click start 
2.go to control pannel
3.open 'add or remove program'
4.a window will open wait for some time until the list is populated

5 i)in that list find webroot spy sweeper and click remove 
   go through the uninstall wizard and finish the uninstallation process

5 ii)if you didn't find webroot spy sweeper there then it can be a virus
You need to download a program called MalwareBytes because that searces your entire computer
, finds the virus and completely destroys it.

http://www.download.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html

Click the green 'download now' button (don't worry - this is free) and once you've downloaded it, got the updates and done a system sweep which takes a long time but it's worth it, you should be fine. It also solves the desktop, wallpaper and screensaver hijack, too.

6. restart your computer

7.open mycomputer click search and do a search for webroot spy sweeper
delete all the files and folders regarding webroot spy sweeper

8.now download mcafee before installing mcafee uninstall MalwareBytes and restart your pc
because at a time only one antivirus software should be used

i think this solution will help you 
if the problem is not fixed please inform i will suggest some other ways

Previously owned Spy Sweeper


See if you can run the program from folder,should be a .exe file,
if it runs check the version under the help tab,,,if not you have to delete it and you have to delete the keys in the registry,if you don't know how to do this, do a search for webroot ,or spysweeper with windows search,and look for the installer it should say spysweeper
install or setup, reinstall the program and then uninstall it with its own uninstaller,, the file is (unins000.exe)only uninstall if this version is older that the disk you received.

Spy sweeper reintalled 3 times and does not work


download spybot search and destroy and run this plus download and install avg 8 it's free and run both programs offline meaning not connected to the net and once done you may try and run spy-sweeper again.

If all fails try another copy from web it may have come down corrupted.

If all is well then happy surfing but if the new copy is the same then hunt in the registry for all keys belonging to spy sweeper once you have removed it from your computer also go-to program files directory and find the folder that belongs to spy sweeper and delete folder as most of un-installers don't remove the folder to program and try installing again and if all fails then then other thing I can suggest is move all your files to a safe place and redo your operating system from scratch but after you have installed os, install spy sweeper first then any other security software before you go to net.

hope this is helpful

Spy sweeper not working


1- Install using this serial: SSDC-ONLN-AAAA-NNNL-NINC

Then

2- Go into the C:\Program Files\Webroot\Spy Sweeper

Then

3- Right click the "install.dat" file-->go to Properties--> at the bottom check the boxes "read-only" and "hidden"-->then click Apply

And finally....

4- Run SpySweeperFix.v1.1.exe

Allow SpySweeperFix.v1.1.exe to run on the next Windows start up, this gives you the definition update till 2020, otherwise, you'll just get till 2006!

Hope this helps, if not, post back.

The connection to the spy sweeper engine has been lost or terminated. Sky sweeper will now close and restart


CLEAN INSTALL needed here.
Try un-installing after the un-install, shut down completely for at least 30 seconds, and then restart. This releases any "Locked files" for deletion.
Then do a search in 'all files and folders' - search for both Weebroot and then Spy Sweeper, with the options "Search system folders", "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search subfolders" checked. Delete all of those files found.
You should do this search and delete whenever you un-install any programs. It will remove lots and lots of leftover junk files and corrupted files taking up room on your hard drive. It will also give you a "clean install" when you reinstall or install an updated program. (Do this ESPECIALLY when updating to a NEW anti-virus programs and “Internet Security Suite” programs such as McAfee or Norton etc.)
BEFORE RE-INSTALLING Spy Sweeper
Download and install "Registry Mechanic" then do the updates prior to running it and removing anything for the first time. This will get rid of all your current Registry errors, prior to installing or reinstalling.
