Hi,

To start the Spy Sweeper you will need to go into the safemode by pressing f8 and then choose SAFE MODE" and hit enter.It will then load allot of files you will have to wait for 10-15min and then the windows will start.Then you can start the Spy Sweeper software and then update all the definitions.

I strongly recommend you to go for "Kaspersky Internet Security".This is the best antivirus has all the features and you will never face any sort of problems with this again.
Spy Sweeper is just useless.Even if it detects the spyware it won't fix that it will just give you the results as fixed but actually the spyware will be in you PC.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution.

Spy vs spy game wont work


As of Late 2011, SpySweeper was discontinued and replaced with Webroot SecureAnywhere. This was provided as a free upgrade to all existing users. If SpySweeper was the cause of the issue, the upgrade would resolve it. If Spy vs Spy is, in this case, unrelated to Webroot SpySweeper, then this cannot be helped.

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.
