I want to uninstall spy sweeper but I can't. I get a runtime error. How can I uninstall?

Hi Friend,

Close the SpySweeper Program
  • If SpySweeper isn't closed properly, it may not uninstall completely. Click the SpySweeper icon on the Windows toolbar, then choose the "Exit" command to close it. Hold down the "Control," "Alt" and "Delete" keys at the same time to open the Task Manager. Select "Processes" and look for a process called "spysweeper.exe." If you find it, choose it and then click "End Process." Next, look for a process called "WRSSSDK.exe" and follow the same procedure to close it if you find it.

  • Uninstall SpySweeper
  • Go to the Windows "Start" menu from the toolbar, then choose "Control Panel." Locate the "Add/Remove Program" option and choose it. Once the list of available programs is populated, find and select SpySweeper. Click "Uninstall" and let Windows complete the uninstall process. You will get a message when it is done.

  • Test the Computer
  • Reboot your computer, and once it has restarted, look for the SpySweeper icon on the toolbar. If it is absent, hold down "Control," "Alt" and "Delete" to open the Task Manager. Under "Processes," look for "spysweeper.exe" and "WRSSSDK.exe." If the uninstall was successful, you will not find them. If they are running, end them and go through the uninstall process again

    Webroot 6.1 Antivirus/SpySweeper won't open after install

    Dear User,

    Though Webroot 6.1 Antivirus works fine on Windows 7, but its Spyweeper (anti spywear), is not seems to be compatible with Windows 7.

    You can look for the version of webrrot that is fully compatible with windows 7.
    You can go to the free versions of Antivirus availables for Windows 7 (as AVG Free).

    Webroot spysweeper installation problem

    Dear Wlutke,
    As far as I know spysweeper works good only in Windows XP not in Vista. You contact spysweeper customer care and tell your problem. Each software has some trail period. So if you were not satisfied with the product you can return it and get your money back.

    Driver blockt work due to compatibility issues.

    A user can uninstall the Windows Vista update that is causing this issue. Once the update is uninstalled you will need to wait until Microsoft has released a fix for this issue. Otherwise, a Windows Vista update may cause this problem to occur again if Microsoft has not pushed a fix yet.
    To uninstall the conflicting update, do the following:
    1. Click Start
    2. Click Control Panel
    3. Click Programs and Features
    4. Choose View installed updates
    5. Select "Update for Microsoft Windows (KB943302)
    6. Click Uninstall
    7. Restart your computer and the update should be uninstalled

    Spysweeper program will not run

    What are the Errors?
    Here is a quick one to try.
    Remove the prog again & then clean your registry.
    If you havent got a reg cleaner Download Ashampoo3
    (google search) Its a free 10 day trail prog but its good enough for what you need.
    After cleaning Reinstall your spysweeper.
    Your reg has probally still got some old info from the last installment of spysweeper & wants cleaning.
