I just in install webroot anitvirus spysweeper but it wont turn on the shields or let me scan please help me


Try to restart your computer, if that doesn't help, try to uninstall, restart then reinstall the software.
If that doesn't work, you can try installing a better anti-virus called Comodo. It's rated #1 in 2011.
Good luck!

Error, my computer cannot access some programs and it works very slow and get always hung.


You probably have some virus and/or malware infections. Clean up your system:
  1. Restart computer into Safe-Mode with Networking (press F5 or F8 repeatedly whilst booting)
  2. Run an online virus scan here
  3. Download, install & update Malwarebytes
  4. Run a full scan & reboot if/when asked.
  5. Clean up your system by installing and running Ccleaner
If you still have problems after cleaning up your system post back which programs you are having trouble accessing.

Reastart the computer in Safe Mode and then run all your security scans. Restart the computer and then go online to Trend Micro House Call and download and run the free scan. Remove all it finds. http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

I would suspect your computer has a virus or has spyware or malware that is causing this. Restart your computer in Safe Mode and run Webroot and your other security software. If they find nothing then restart your computer and then go online and run this free scan. http://us.trendmicro.com/us/housecall/

Alleged conflict mcafee w webroot spy sweeper


Hi,
If spysweeper was installed then you should find it in "add remove programs" (XP) or "programs and features" (Vista) both can be found in the control panel.
When you open it look for webroot.
If it's not there type regedit in the search or run box, click on edit and select find, type webroot into the text box and search for any registry entry relating to spysweeper (webroot).
If your registry finds an entry click on find next and keep on doing this until the registry is cleared, then restart your PC and try and update Mcafee.
If you can't find any registry entry relating to webroot your PC maybe infected with spyware, malware or a virus. In that case i would perform a deep scan of the system whether your antivirus is updated or not.


Good luck and please post back if you need anymore help.

Slow boot up


spysweeper could be the problem, as it may be checking over the system before the pc is allowed to run, also if you have got more than one antivirus if any (hope you have!) or spyware programmes, they all use up system resources reducing your memory and processor speed, check what you have installed.

Remember, some trojans cannot be found by some lower end anti virus programmes, and can only be found by decent spyware programmes.

Also if possible run any antivirus and spyware programme in safe mode, to allow you to run it faster (F8 on boot up and choose safe mode)

Webroot spy sweeper is having problems


CLEAN INSTALL needed here.
Try uninstalling again, but this time after the uninstall, shut down completely for at least 30 seconds, and then restart.
Then do a search for 'all files and folders' - search for both Spysweeper and then Webroot, with the options "Search system folders", "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search subfolders" checked. Delete all of those files found.
You should do this search and delete whenever you uninstall any programs. It will remove lots and lots of leftover junk files and corrupted files taking up room on your hard drive. It will also give you a "clean install" when you reinstall or install an updated program. (Do this ESPECIALLY when updating to a NEW anti-virus programs and “Internet Security Suite” programs such as McAfee or Norton etc.)
BEFORE RE-INSTALLING PowerProducer
Download and install "Registry Mechanic" then do the updates prior to running it and removing anything for the first time. This will get rid of all your current Registry errors, prior to installing or reinstalling.
