This sounds like the program glitched. Try removing it and reinstalling. Then have it check for any updates.

Try doing a system restore to a day before you started having the problem.

If that does not work, reinstall spysweeper.

If still no luck that can be because of a virus or spyware yhat had damaged the spysweeper software , and probably also the system.

The best solution in this case is saving all your data, then formatting the disk and performing a new system installation.

Before formatting and reinstalling windows you can try the following software, it is one of most powerful, it is safe, and it is free.

Webroot antispyware not sweeping


Hi,

if you are using webroot antispyware software on the computer. you have 2 resolution for that.

1. if you have a CD then you can uninstall and reinstall it before that disconnect the internet connection.

2. If your are downloading it online then the only thing is first try to download a different antivirus for the time being and then you can uninstall webroot from the cmptr and then you can download it again and then you can uninstall the antivirus which you installed for the time being.

this will resolve the issue.

Won't sweep


you may need to manually update the program by going to the Options tab and click Update. If you receive a dialog box stating, "Continue, Shut Down, Restart Program" or something of the sort, click Continue using Program and it will update the definitions. then restart computer and sweep. If this doesn't work then your program may need to be reinstalled with a valid subscription key.

Webroot spysweeper won't sweep


Webroot has a main page where one of the tabs across the the top is 'Shields' Click on that tab and set all shields on except the e-mail one. That one makes a mess on Outlook Express. I also dropped back a few versions since the latest one kept yakking about a shortage of drive space when there was no problem. As to alerts the program will give an ' Alert' when it thinks that a sweep is overdue. I just click on 'sweep later' and minimize the alert.There are also some good anti spyware 'freebies such as AVG and SpyBot Search and destroy
