SOURCE: 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.

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...

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

My Western digital My Book WD5000F032 has been working fine for years. I shut it down and disconnected it one day and now it wont connect to the computer again...I have tried two other computers with now...


The sweeping noise usually means the drive cannot read the first few cylinders and can't finish starting up.

This can be due to drop damage causing an impact on the pallets, a failing head on the drive, a failed pre-amp on the arm or even a few circuits on the PCB board that are involved in the process.

Generally this type of failure would require the help of a pro to recover files off.

If this is just a backup drive and you have all you original files intact simply replace it and back your files up onto the new one.

If this had important files on it that aren't backed up elsewhere and you need a pro, reply back with your location(Country, State, City) and I will connect you with a nearby pro who can assist you in a lab environment.


Hope this helps FixYa,

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 spysweeper won't sweep

Computer keeps shutting down everytime I try to do a full sweep


Yes, this seems to be a common problem with SpySweeper.
This may not be a solution, but why not try http://housecall65.trendmicro.com/

It scans your PC online, and its free. I thought I removed all spyware/malware etc from my PC using my regular anti-virus and spyware detect software (which I use almost daily). I just tried this online yesterday and it detected 2 Malware and 3 adware programs still on my PC, plus a lot of other stuff..

Try it. Its free after all :)
