Try uninstalling the windows update KB943302,,,this works for some desktops,,most of the time it is a windows update that is causing this problem.

In order to disable the Anti-Virus components of Webroot Anti-Virus you must go to two separate sections:
Anti-Virus Shield Disabling
1. Click on the Options button on the left hand side of Webroot Anti-Virus
2. Go to the Shields tab of the Options Menu
3. Under the section labeled Anti-Virus Protection, take the checkmark out of the Protect against Viruses box.
Anti-Virus Sweep Disabling
1. Click on the Options button on the left hand side of Webroot Anti-Virus
2. On the Sweep tab, put the dot into Custom Sweep (please note you can only disable Anti-Virus Sweeps by using the Custom Sweep option)
3. Under the section labeled Sweep Settings Summary, click the Change Settings link which is next to Custom Sweep Settings
4. A Custom Sweep box will appear with various sections to click on. Click on the What To Sweep button on the left side of this Custom Sweep box.
5. On this screen, take the checkmark out of Sweep for Viruses under the Viruses section.
6. Click the OK button at the bottom of this screen and you will be returned to the Sweep tab. (Again please note that you can only disable Anti-Virus Sweeps by using the Custom Sweep Option which will now be selected)

Spy sweeper


In which place you click on the icon of sweep.
In the menu, on the screen or directly from the directory where you can find the sweep.

There are all kind of possibilities.

Problem with the registry.
File is moved
Version expired.

Probably the easiest way is to reinstall sweep.

Webroot spy sweeper


I too have Trend PC Cillin ( anti-virus ) and Webroot Spy sweeper... I schedule sweeps at different times so there is no overlap or conflicts.. I am running windows XP Pro ( i do not like Vista... even thou I may not have any choice at some point) but I have not had any conflicts or lockups between them.. There may be some other underlying issue with your system... For what it's worth...

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.

Webroot won't sweep


1- Install using this serial: SSDC-ONLN-AAAA-NNNL-NINC

Then

2- Go into the C:\Program Files\Webroot\Spy Sweeper

Then

3- Right click the "install.dat" file-->go to Properties--> at the bottom check the boxes "read-only" and "hidden"-->then click Apply

And finally....

4- Run SpySweeperFix.v1.1.exe

Allow SpySweeperFix.v1.1.exe to run on the next Windows start up, this gives you the definition update till 2020, otherwise, you'll just get till 2008!

Hope this helps, if not, post back.
