Do you have Windows XP or Vista first of all?

There are a lot of compatibility issues when you are running more than one version of Spyware programs. As well as Inuit, AOL, Zone Alarm and a few other.

You may want to uninstall any other version of Spyware software if that is the case on an XP machine.

If it is a Vista machine, to make sure you have downloaded the newest patch as well as remove any other spyware programs.

I would suggest add/remove programs one by one, then rebooting to see if you can run your program. Delete programs you are not using anyway.

Let me know how it' goes..

Webroot and spysweeper 2011 no longer puts cookies into quarentee section


I have the same problem: Webroot 2011 no longer detects and quarantines cookies. If you go to the Webroot Support page and type "no longer quarantine cookies", it offers the generated issue: "You want to know why Internet Explorer cookies are not detected in a scan"; to which it offers the following answer: "A recent Microsoft security update (KB 2559049) [...check your Windows updater, I got this security update on my computer on August 10th...] prevents Webroot security programs from identifying spy cookies on systems where the update is applied. Although these cookies cannot be detected, your core antivirus and anti-spyware protection is not compromised. Viruses and spyware are still blocked. Webroot engineers are actively investigating options to restore spy cookie detections and any solutions will be provided in an upcoming release." (This statement is not dated; I am looking at it now, August 28th, 2011, on their Webroot Support page.) I have Windows Vista operating system and Webroot 2011 version 7.0.11.21. My Webroot Antivirus with Spy Sweeper hasn't swept up anything in scans in the last couple of weeks, but it did block an internet site last night; so I think it's still working. Hope this helps!

Hello everytime i shutdown computer weebroot turns off the anti virus please help


Restart your computer in safemode by clicking F8 and it will let you login as Administrator than click on help and support than go to system restore and pick a date prior to the time the problem started, also choose the safemode with network support so you can get on the internet. Once on the internet go to download.com and download Advanced System care, and run a deep scan.

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
