I was just using Webroot Window Washer the other day and had a similar problem. I went to the control panel and deleted the program. Then I reinstalled it and it worked fine this time. Of course I was using a free trial. If you purchased the program just download it again or reinstall it from your disc.

Hi, your virus scan will not remove pop ups. Open your web browser and go to tools at the top of the screen and then options, here you can remove or block pop ups and cookies.

Have you tried a pop up blocker?

Here's one, and in my opinion it is g r e a t !

Pop up Blocker ** free**

Also some useful information below. Hope it helps.

SPEAKING WITH MY EXPERIENCE TRY SOMETHING ELSE.

FREE SPYWARE
Download Spybot Search & Destroy. Restart computer, then run Spybot to see what spyware comes up, AND DELET IT.

FYI---Virus Protection-- 2 programs of virus protection will conflict with each other and will actually cancel out the protection. SO just download one.

Running Spybot Search & Destroy with EITHER Avast or Avg (great Free virus protection programs ) will keep a computer in good working condition. FREE

HERE ARE SOME LINKS, THAT WOULD BE BETTER:

Webroot antivirus won't run.


I'd uninstall and go with something like Avira Antivirus
I haven't had ANY issues running this program. All I deal with is the occasional pop up when new definitions are installed. For what it can do, I think it's the best out there for it's price range...free.
If you wish to stick with Webroot...it sounds like it's conflicting with other program/s. Make sure your program is compatible with your OS. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if it were Vista.

It wont run the sweep when I click on 'RUN FULL SWEEP' - its simply not functioning! My subscription is still running till September 09.


The easiest solution to your problem is to reinstall the program if its still under subscription just download it from any site and enter your info =) good luck
