Question about Webroot Spy Sweeper (spysweeper) for PC

Webroot won't sweep as per schedule

We recently had Webroot Spy Sweeper with AniVirus installed in our computer. We have set it to Sweep daily at 2:00 a.m. It does not Sweep as scheduled. The message tells us that ---it is due to the fact that we have logged off or that we have scheduled more than one sweep? None of these are true at least to the best of our knowledge!!!!

    Same deal for me. The message says "One or more of your last scheduled events could not run, probably because you were logged off this computer or you scheduled multiple log-on events." It used to work just fine - sweep would run automatically at 4:00 a.m. - now I get this message every day and have to run the sweep manually. I'm getting tired of getting up at 4:00 a.m. to run Spy Sweeper! ;-)

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.

This sounds like the program glitched. Try removing it and reinstalling. Then have it check for any updates.

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.

Webroot spy sweeper


I too have Trend PC Cillin ( anti-virus ) and Webroot Spy sweeper... I schedule sweeps at different times so there is no overlap or conflicts.. I am running windows XP Pro ( i do not like Vista... even thou I may not have any choice at some point) but I have not had any conflicts or lockups between them.. There may be some other underlying issue with your system... For what it's worth...

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.

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 won't sweep


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 2008!

Hope this helps, if not, post back.
