First get rid of spy sweeper. Go to

save the file to your desk top. reboot in safe mode (hold down F8 as soon as it powers on) install the file, skip update, run a full scan and remove infections found. then go to www.comodo.com and install their free firewall and antivirus for your permanent security program. It is a full suite and it is free. If spy sweeper won't uninstall, try to do it in safe mode too. The system cleaner o the comodo website is very good as well and will probably speed your computer up, run the power clean feature after evrything else is done. Let me know if you need anything else.

CAN'T FIND UNINSTALL FILE FOR SPY SWEEPER. Is causing conflicts with Trend Micro


Have you looked in the Spy Sweeper folder, most probably C:\Program Files\Webroot\Spy Sweeper and looked for the uninstaller - unins000.exe

You could always search for this file through Start>Search, select all files and folders and type "unins000.exe". It should find the file, this is the uninstaller, just double click.

You could also start in Safe Mode (restart computer and hit F8 when computer first starts) and delete the webroot folder C:\Program Files\Webroot\ . Do NOT try to delete the Program Files folder...

Good luck! Let me know if you need further help. I will check back tomorrow.

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.
