I am trying to insatll Webroot Spy Sweep and Windos one care does not letme do it


Well, There would be two ways to uninstall :-


1. Install registry mechanic and run. It will automatically remove all the registry errors and later on you wld be able to uninstall webroot spy sweep.

2. Download any of the uninstall software available in the market. Whenever you uninstall a software using the uninstallers, they always make sure that it wld not affect your computer.

These uninstallers are easily available on the download.com, brothersoft.com.

One of the links :-

Never rely on just one antivirus or malware scanner, they all miss something that another catches.
Try this, it's one of the best out there at the moment.

Trend Micro Antivirus/Vista Antivirus 2008


Hello there.

Unfortunately you have been infected, by the software called "Vista Antivirus 2008". What this software does is infect you, then prompt you to pay to remove the infection that it installed. So it is a scam.

What i would recommend is use the uninstall instructions from here http://www.windowsvistaplace.com/xp-antivirus-2008-removal-instructions-xp-antivirus-2008/spyware-removal

This will remove the infection (and others) from your system.

Once you have completed the steps, be sure to try an online scanner such as housecall here http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
This will not conflict with your already-installed Trend Micro software, it mearly runs through your web browser.

On that note, Internet Explorer is not very safe for browsing the Internet with, i would recommend either Firefox or Opera for a safer/better browsing experience.

Hope this helps.

Spy ware


HIjack This is mostly used as a logging tool to help identify adaware. it will allow you to send the log file to an expert who will then be able to tell you what to look out for. as with all adware removal programs, you have to look over the results to make sure you are not getting rid of something valid before blindly accepting all their recommendations.

My two personal favorites are:
Spybot S&D found at www.safer-networking.org/
Ad Aware, found at www.Lavasoft.com

Mycomputer, when first turned on reads: "the connection to the spy sweep has been lost or terminated."

It's your Webroot Spy Sweeper that's having problems - it may be related to your antivirus or firewall (try updating them), or if you're using Vista there's an incompatibility with the automatic update. Some of the possibilities can be found on Webroot's support site -

http://support.webroot.com/

Start with updating Spy Sweeper to the latest version (by manual update) and then branch out.

My computer keeps turning off while I'm playing a game both on & off line. It also turns off while I am running a Webroot Spy Sweeper on my computer. This also happens while both on & off line.


have you installed or replaced any hardware such as a video card, extra hard drive/DVD drive, etc? Generally computers will shut down when too much power is required but the power supply isn't able to handle it (PC companies manufacture computers so that they work with the bare minimum power supply wattage).

Also, make sure the outlet/surge protector you're using isn't faulty, and everything is securely connected inside the case (Hard drive/Optical drive cables, sound/video cards, RAM, power supply cables, etc)
