Question about Webroot Spy Sweeper (spysweeper) for PC

1 Answer

Spysweeper alert Alert says that spysweeper cannot send or receive E-Mails. I printed out the instructions of how to manipulate PC-cillin to correct this, but I get stuck when the instruction say to name the rule Spysweeper and type the full path to program. I do not have the faintest notion of what the rule is. Can you help?

Re: spysweeper alert

Just give a NAME to the rule is what they are asking, you don't have to know any more than that. You do not have to know how it works or 'what it is'.
Select (on the menu bar) Tools then folder options, then View, put a check in the "Display full path in the title bar" hit the "Apply to All Folders" then the "Apply" button. This will give you the full path of where the file is located.

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

Unless you have legal and fully licensed Spy Sweeper advise you to uninstall spysweeper and instal Spyware Doctor Starter Edition (Free). There is known fake named Spy Sweeper virus software.

If it is oryginal do not ignore alerts! This software is to protect you and your computer against malicious software.

Webroot spysweeper won't sweep

Webroot has a main page where one of the tabs across the the top is 'Shields' Click on that tab and set all shields on except the e-mail one. That one makes a mess on Outlook Express. I also dropped back a few versions since the latest one kept yakking about a shortage of drive space when there was no problem. As to alerts the program will give an ' Alert' when it thinks that a sweep is overdue. I just click on 'sweep later' and minimize the alert.There are also some good anti spyware 'freebies such as AVG and SpyBot Search and destroy
