Webroot spysweeper won't sweep

Says 4 critical shields are OFF and my (?) is "vulnerable". Gives me an "Alert's" prompt but won't let me see what. Then won't start a sweep. Says something about "Options Progrms??" I have the same problem, 4 critical shields are off. Then, I get an error message saying "Could not locate a valid definitions file. Please go to the Program Options page and click "Update definitions" to download a definitions file".

Acer aspire battery critically low but not using battery, it shuts off anyhow


If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Slow speed


If you do not have sufficient anti virus / spyware software then you most likely have a virus.
Clarify with what antivirus you have installed if any...
If you don't have any then I would suggest buying one of the following
Bit Defender Internet Security or Antivirus Pro http://www.bitdefender.com/2011/en/internetsecurity2011/?gclid=CLjrkuuU-6kCFQQCbAodJX-fZg
Webroot Internet Security or Antivirus with spysweeper http://www.webroot.com/En_US/consumer.html
or Kaspersky Internet Security http://usa.kaspersky.com/store/all-products?c_id=GOO1673628
Once installed make sure to update the software and run a full scan If you are unable to update the software Reboot the computer and press F8 until you get a menu Select "Safemode with networking" You should now be able to update the software and run a full scan

Per Webroot spysweeper need to find option program & update definitions?


To open Webroot, double click on the icon on your desktop or find it in the start menu. If it is the first time you are running the program, it will prompt automatically to update the definition file. However if it not the first time, once the program has opened click on "Home" on the left hand side of the open window. There should be two options-check for program updates or check for definition updates. Simply click on check for definition updates and you should be good to go :)
