If you are unable to uninstall spy sweeper, then simply use spy sweeper removal tool to remove it from system. If still there arise an issue, then simply remove all registry files related to AVG and then delete the folder. Everything will work fine.

Hi Friend,

Close the SpySweeper Program

  • If SpySweeper isn't closed properly, it may not uninstall completely. Click the SpySweeper icon on the Windows toolbar, then choose the "Exit" command to close it. Hold down the "Control," "Alt" and "Delete" keys at the same time to open the Task Manager. Select "Processes" and look for a process called "spysweeper.exe." If you find it, choose it and then click "End Process." Next, look for a process called "WRSSSDK.exe" and follow the same procedure to close it if you find it.

  • Uninstall SpySweeper
  • Go to the Windows "Start" menu from the toolbar, then choose "Control Panel." Locate the "Add/Remove Program" option and choose it. Once the list of available programs is populated, find and select SpySweeper. Click "Uninstall" and let Windows complete the uninstall process. You will get a message when it is done.

  • Test the Computer
  • Reboot your computer, and once it has restarted, look for the SpySweeper icon on the toolbar. If it is absent, hold down "Control," "Alt" and "Delete" to open the Task Manager. Under "Processes," look for "spysweeper.exe" and "WRSSSDK.exe." If the uninstall was successful, you will not find them. If they are running, end them and go through the uninstall process again

    I have a subsription with McAfee and I cannot download the software before having this webroot spy sweeper removed.I cannot find it on my computer and never had a subscription with this webroot spy...


    first uninstall the webroot spy sweeper through the following steps.
    1.click start 
    2.go to control pannel
    3.open 'add or remove program'
    4.a window will open wait for some time until the list is populated

    5 i)in that list find webroot spy sweeper and click remove 
       go through the uninstall wizard and finish the uninstallation process

    5 ii)if you didn't find webroot spy sweeper there then it can be a virus
    You need to download a program called MalwareBytes because that searces your entire computer
    , finds the virus and completely destroys it.

    http://www.download.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html

    Click the green 'download now' button (don't worry - this is free) and once you've downloaded it, got the updates and done a system sweep which takes a long time but it's worth it, you should be fine. It also solves the desktop, wallpaper and screensaver hijack, too.

    6. restart your computer

    7.open mycomputer click search and do a search for webroot spy sweeper
    delete all the files and folders regarding webroot spy sweeper

    8.now download mcafee before installing mcafee uninstall MalwareBytes and restart your pc

    if the problem is not fixed please inform i will suggest some other ways
