My spy sweeper want sweep

That means that the spyware had damaged the spysweeper software , and probably also the system.

The best solution in this case is saving all your data, then formatting the disk and performing a new system installation.

Before formatting and reinstalling windows you can try the following software, it is one of most powerful, it is safe, and it is free.

That error on XP usually means that your trial version or full version has expired. If you have upgraded to Vista, then you will need to uninstall Spy Sweeper and reinstall.
