Are you running Windows Xp or Windows Vista

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.

If you do not have the option of purchasing the software, then go to this link for a few version

Previously owned Webroot Spy Sweeper


It doesn't really matter which version of Spy Sweeper is on the installation disk, as long as the subscription associated with its product key hasn't expired. Spy Sweeper will immediately update to the current version after you install it.

The clock starts on your one-year subscription when you enter the product key during installation. If it's a 3-machine license, then the clock starts on all 3 copies when the first one is installed.

Spy sweeper not working


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 2006!

Hope this helps, if not, post back.

Spy problems


First Try This:
Try to uninstall Spysweeper and reinstall (Control Panel -> Add Remove Programs)


If it gets nasty reboot in to safe mode (follow these steps):
1. Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press the F8 key when the Boot Menu appears.
2. Select an option when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER.
3. When the Boot menu appears again, and the words "Safe Mode" appear in blue at the bottom, select the "Windows XP with networking"

Once you are in safe mode do this:
1. Download the free microsoft app "Autoruns" from http://download.sysinternals.com/Files/Autoruns.zip
2. Extract the .zip file
3. double click the file "autoruns.exe"
4. The program will start autoscanning your computer to see what boots up with it (it will take a few min.... bottom left of screen tells you when it is done)
5. Make sure you are in the "Everything" tab (which loads up by default)
6. Hit CTRL + F (to do a Find)
7. Type "Spy" and hit ENTER
8. The first entry containing the word "Spy" in your startup instructions will be highlighted
9. Look at the "Image Path" column, if it contains anything like "C:\Program Files\Webroot\Spy Sweeper\" uncheck that item
10. Press F3 to see the next item containing the word "Spy"
11. Keep repeating steps 9 & 10 until you get through the entire list
I'm guessing you might find the following:
C:\Program Files\Webroot\Spy Sweeper\SpySweeper.exe
C:\Program Files\Webroot\Spy Sweeper\SSU.EXE
C:\Program Files\Webroot\Spy Sweeper\SpySweeperUI.exe
12. Reboot as normal (spysweeper should not load up)
13. Attempt uninstall, reinstall again
