    When I turn on my computer, the same message also comes up. I also have an automatic sweep set up weekly for Webroot Spy Sweeper. It did not sweep on the scheduled date. I tried to manually sweep and it still did not work. It also states that 4 of my shields are off. I clicked on "update" but that didn't help either. What do I do now? I'm not that "computer savy".

    1- Install using this serial: SSDC-ONLN-AAAA-NNNL-NINC

    Then

    2- Go into the C:\Program Files\Webroot\Spy Sweeper

    Then

    3- Right click the "install.dat" file-->go to Properties--> at the bottom check the boxes "read-only" and "hidden"-->then click Apply

    And finally....

    4- Run SpySweeperFix.v1.1.exe

    Allow SpySweeperFix.v1.1.exe to run on the next Windows start up, this gives you the definition update till 2020, otherwise, you'll just get till 2006!

    Hope this helps, if not, post back.

Spy Sweeper won't sweep


I have seen this problem a couple times. The only fix that seems to work is uninstalling Spysweeper and then reinstall it again. If you go to start>Programs>webroot you will see an uninstaller. Run that, reboot the computer, then reinstall again from your install disc.

Could not locate a valid definitions file


it is your purchased version or u got it from your friend or somewhere else.
if u purchased it then u have to just go to that site and follow the instruction to get some updation.
or this is your unpurchased version than it is good to remove it.
for that go to control panal and then select add/remove hardware or software. in this option u will get all the softwares.
select spy sweeper and select remove option.
that will remove spysweeper.

thanks

This is more than likely a message from your Anti-Virus program. Quick fix would be to uninstall your anti virus program and reinstall it. Or you can just uninstall this AV program and install the free AV program called AVG. Click on AVG to download it. Hope this helps.
