If going to control panel and look for the program in "uninstall program", then try actually going to where the Webroot Spysweet is installed.

For example, and most likely, it is installed in C:\Program Files\Webroot Spysweep

AFter finding the folder, delete it and any other files related to this program.

Hope this helps!

Webroot spysweeper won't sweep


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

Do we need both Trend Micro Antivirus and Webroot Spy Sweeper?


i have found out the norton is the best to use. is your c drive getting full? if so you need to get a drive erase pro program and erase some of the things that you have on your hard drive . that is the only way to get it off your drive and have more free space

SpySweeper Anti Virus conflicts with Trend Micro AntiVirus


I would remove Spy Sweeper and Trend Micro. Then I would install the free versions of AVG, Ad-aware 2008, WinPatrol SpyBlaster and ScrubXP .

I have been using this combo for years and have had no problems as long as you keep them updated.

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...

Trend Micro Antivirus/Vista Antivirus 2008


Hello there.

Unfortunately you have been infected, by the software called "Vista Antivirus 2008". What this software does is infect you, then prompt you to pay to remove the infection that it installed. So it is a scam.

What i would recommend is use the uninstall instructions from here http://www.windowsvistaplace.com/xp-antivirus-2008-removal-instructions-xp-antivirus-2008/spyware-removal

This will remove the infection (and others) from your system.

Once you have completed the steps, be sure to try an online scanner such as housecall here http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
This will not conflict with your already-installed Trend Micro software, it mearly runs through your web browser.

On that note, Internet Explorer is not very safe for browsing the Internet with, i would recommend either Firefox or Opera for a safer/better browsing experience.

Hope this helps.

It's your Webroot Spy Sweeper that's having problems - it may be related to your antivirus or firewall (try updating them), or if you're using Vista there's an incompatibility with the automatic update. Some of the possibilities can be found on Webroot's support site -

http://support.webroot.com/

Start with updating Spy Sweeper to the latest version (by manual update) and then branch out.
