Question about Webroot Spy Sweeper (spysweeper) for PC
Sweep still going after 9 hrs
IE now runs Firefox won't even after several attempts to download
You should reboot into Safe Mode to run these tests. Restart your computer and tap F8 while its rebooting. From there, it is easy to do all the anti virus and other scans. You can also download Hijackthis from here with IE. http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/programs.php#hijackthis
A word of caution though: It will display all processes that your computer has, so you have to look over the list and see what doesn't belong like web browser helpers and other known spyware. Tips: Always use Firefox when possible, use your anti virus program once a week, try Sbybot Search and destroy. You can see what is running on your system by Ctrl+Alt+Delete. One of these should be stopped. You can also go to Start---->Run---->type " msconfig " and enter. Here you can stop or change programs that run at boot up. You can post any results on here if you need further assistance.
