Question about Webroot Spy Sweeper (spysweeper) for PC

1 Answer

I requested assistance on Feb 20, 2009. No answer yet

I already charged on my credit card $9.99.
My problem is this: Ever since I updated to the new version 6.02.39 i have a problem when I open my computer. I have Norton and Norton says that Windows Firewall is off putting my computer in danger of viruses, etc. I called Norton and found out that I need to shut down Spysweeper and then reload it. Spysweeper loads shields. Then Norton gives me a clear message.
I think that in Windows Firewall I need to enter some kind of exception and I do not know how to do that.

You might want to try uninstalling one of the programs. Either the Norton or the Spysweeper. Both products seem to be trying to do the same thing and conflicting with each other. Good Luck!

An automatic unauthorized payment was made from my credit card. I do not use this product, and would like a refund

You have posted your question to the wrong place, but I will answer it for you anyway: the first thing you must do is contact your credit card company and dispute this charge. An automatic payment is a recurring one, a charge that is made month after month. If you do not speak to your credit card issuer, this charge will be made each month. Your credit card company will investigate the source of the charge and will probably terminate your current credit card number and issue a new one for you. You are never responsible for fraudulent charges on credit cards as long as you did nothing to contribute to the fraud. Call them now, before additional charges can be made.

My credit card shows a charge of $89.85 on Mar. 6, 2014, from CBI*WINZIP CLEVERBRIDG. I do not know what the charge is for because I did not make a purchase from CBI*WINZIP CLEVERBIDG. How do I get the...

So easy, try to report that to your bank. The bank will then contact that merchant and investigate everything. That problem happens most of the time on a credit card.

I was charged 3 times for a product; $29.95

FixYa has no control over any charges appearing on your credit card. Please contact the company with whom you have this transaction. If you get no satisfaction from them, then contact your credit card issuer and have them stop the payments.

I have been trying for days to cancel my Panda Internet Security services. They are absolutely UNforthcoming about how to cancel an automatic renewal. There is not a single link on their entire website...

oh so bad. i don't think this option is possible to you. but, as you have said, you cannot contact them, so you need to do something from your end to stop the auto-renewal of your subscription.
1. try to go to the page that you said where you can change your credit card information. change the info if it is possible, so that your card will not be charged for renewal. change tha card number, the 3-digit code, your name, whatever just to deny the automatic renewal. when they can't charge the card you entered, then your renewal is denied, and you can buy another antivirus product. I don't know if this is possible in your case. just a suggestion
2. call your Credit Card Bank issuer and asked them to deny the auto-charging done by the software-vendor. In my own case, with HSBC, they are very very very cooperative. they put my account on "monitor" and they called me right away when the alleged "floating" auto-charge was the one i wanted to cancel. they told me about the name of the company making the charge and when I confirmed that it was the non-responsive phone company, they blocked it and I was out of perpetual trouble.
