Webroot and spysweeper 2011 no longer puts cookies into quarentee section


I have the same problem: Webroot 2011 no longer detects and quarantines cookies. If you go to the Webroot Support page and type "no longer quarantine cookies", it offers the generated issue: "You want to know why Internet Explorer cookies are not detected in a scan"; to which it offers the following answer: "A recent Microsoft security update (KB 2559049) [...check your Windows updater, I got this security update on my computer on August 10th...] prevents Webroot security programs from identifying spy cookies on systems where the update is applied. Although these cookies cannot be detected, your core antivirus and anti-spyware protection is not compromised. Viruses and spyware are still blocked. Webroot engineers are actively investigating options to restore spy cookie detections and any solutions will be provided in an upcoming release." (This statement is not dated; I am looking at it now, August 28th, 2011, on their Webroot Support page.) I have Windows Vista operating system and Webroot 2011 version 7.0.11.21. My Webroot Antivirus with Spy Sweeper hasn't swept up anything in scans in the last couple of weeks, but it did block an internet site last night; so I think it's still working. Hope this helps!

Slow boot up


spysweeper could be the problem, as it may be checking over the system before the pc is allowed to run, also if you have got more than one antivirus if any (hope you have!) or spyware programmes, they all use up system resources reducing your memory and processor speed, check what you have installed.

Remember, some trojans cannot be found by some lower end anti virus programmes, and can only be found by decent spyware programmes.

Also if possible run any antivirus and spyware programme in safe mode, to allow you to run it faster (F8 on boot up and choose safe mode)

Computer keeps shutting down everytime I try to do a full sweep


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 :)

Do you have Windows XP or Vista first of all?

There are a lot of compatibility issues when you are running more than one version of Spyware programs. As well as Inuit, AOL, Zone Alarm and a few other.

You may want to uninstall any other version of Spyware software if that is the case on an XP machine.

If it is a Vista machine, to make sure you have downloaded the newest patch as well as remove any other spyware programs.

I would suggest add/remove programs one by one, then rebooting to see if you can run your program. Delete programs you are not using anyway.

Let me know how it' goes..
