Question about Webroot Spy Sweeper (spysweeper) for PC

2 Answers

Dowloaded spysweeper and it screwed up my pc

I ran the spysweeper and got a ton of trojans and adware put into quarantine, but then it asked me to restart my computer. So after I did that, I kept getting a stop sign. My computer wouldn't go any further and kept asking me to turn the BIOS memory off in safe mode. problem is we can't even get any work done or even boot up while in safe mode. Any ideas?

Same thing happened to me.That program started changing all of my settings and I quickly aborted it before more damage could be done.Nothing worked the same after that.I had to do a total system restore to get the computer bact to factory settings.Turn the computer off.Restart it while continuously hitting the F10 key.Follow the instructions from there.A lto of programs will be lost so make a back up disc before doing a total system restore

My advise is DON'T GO playing around with the workings of windows or safemode UNLESS you know what you are doing. The softwere you have downloaded looks to be f**king crap and you should NOT USE IT AGAIN! If you can still boot your machine and load windows normally there is small selection of programs that i will surgest first download this prograns and install; them You say this spysweeper program that screwed up your pc I need you to fully Un-instll it from the control panel Now! download this program install it http://tinyurl.com/26b38k Update the definitions file by the link in the program. then run a full system scan At the end of the scan delete the infected trogens and spywere. then this should fix the computer ok! if not and your computer is still playing games try this WinCleaner OneClick CleanUp 10 http://tinyurl.com/37s34k Now if that is still not worked recomend you backing up all files that you want to keep - burn them to CD/DVD or Floppy And Re-install Windows By using your recovery disc Insert the recovery disc in to your drive re-start your computer N' keep pressing F2 or F11 this sends you going to the boot menu. select boot from the cd:/dvd drive F10 To save N' Exit then follow the promts to install a fresh copy of windows Keep it real keep it hardcore!!! Don't for get the rep! leave feedback brian aka raverbaby

that is bad.you will need to get a virus program that will take this out or at least put it into quarantine asap.
so run a scan now with what ever virus program who have and hope it at least puts it in to quarantine.
a trojan can be very bad it could wipe you clean.
so please do a scan now.

When it scans and finds a virus it won't let me delete


Then if you can quarantine that in a folder. Quarantine it. If pccillin have a reporting log with its path. Then copy in a piece of paper the name and path. Then delete that in DOS mode if you are familiar with that only be sure that it is a legit viral file.
