    I have been having the same issue and have been working with Webroot support for months! Nothing is working...VERY Frustrating. Sweeps get through Memory, Registry, Cookies and then my computer shuts down (powers off) completely about five minutes into the file/folder sweep. I have to shut off the everything at the power strip to get the computer to reboot.

Yes, this seems to be a common problem with SpySweeper.
This may not be a solution, but why not try http://housecall65.trendmicro.com/

It scans your PC online, and its free. I thought I removed all spyware/malware etc from my PC using my regular anti-virus and spyware detect software (which I use almost daily). I just tried this online yesterday and it detected 2 Malware and 3 adware programs still on my PC, plus a lot of other stuff..

Try it. Its free after all :)
