    Next time I order, if I do, techs should ask permission before they add stuff you don't want!

As of late 2012, Spy Sweeper is discontinued and should not be used. Webroot has replaced SpySweeper and other Webroot products with Webroot SecureAnywhere.

Alleged conflict mcafee w webroot spy sweeper


Hi,
If spysweeper was installed then you should find it in "add remove programs" (XP) or "programs and features" (Vista) both can be found in the control panel.
When you open it look for webroot.
If it's not there type regedit in the search or run box, click on edit and select find, type webroot into the text box and search for any registry entry relating to spysweeper (webroot).
If your registry finds an entry click on find next and keep on doing this until the registry is cleared, then restart your PC and try and update Mcafee.
If you can't find any registry entry relating to webroot your PC maybe infected with spyware, malware or a virus. In that case i would perform a deep scan of the system whether your antivirus is updated or not.


Good luck and please post back if you need anymore help.

Can't install McAfee Security


try going into your c: drive and Program Files and see if you see a folder for webroot or spysweeper.
delete any residual files and the folder.

you may have to go into your registry and remove the spysweeper keys, but unless you know how to do it i would let a pro do it.

Removing webroot spy sweeper


This worked for me. Search the registry for webroot (start->run->type 'regedit'); in regedit, find 'webroot'. Delete the folder that has webroot (it has sub-folder 'spy sweeper'). McAfee should finish installing.

Previously owned Spy Sweeper


See if you can run the program from folder,should be a .exe file,
if it runs check the version under the help tab,,,if not you have to delete it and you have to delete the keys in the registry,if you don't know how to do this, do a search for webroot ,or spysweeper with windows search,and look for the installer it should say spysweeper
install or setup, reinstall the program and then uninstall it with its own uninstaller,, the file is (unins000.exe)only uninstall if this version is older that the disk you received.

Webroot spysweeper installation problem


Dear Wlutke,
As far as I know spysweeper works good only in Windows XP not in Vista. You contact spysweeper customer care and tell your problem. Each software has some trail period. So if you were not satisfied with the product you can return it and get your money back.
