Re: i bought a computer from best buy
Was it an introductory or trial software?
If it wasn't I would definitely make a fuss with Best Buy, I don't see why they wouldn't just pull a new software off the shelf and give it to you especially if you bought a complete system from them. I would do a screen print showing that the software is not working. First, make sure you haven't disabled it, and it is truly not functioning, BUT let them resolve it their own way first.

be careful when using symantec, it is a real resource hog! It does a good job, but is also expensive and costs annually to use. I use all the same items as GregL except i have had a lot of problems with SP3 :/ then again i normally install it on a working machine, and it messes somthing up. On a fresh install of windows XP it should do fine (SP3 that is)
download spybot search and destroy and run this plus download and install avg 8 it's free and run both programs offline meaning not connected to the net and once done you may try and run spy-sweeper again.
If all fails try another copy from web it may have come down corrupted.
If all is well then happy surfing but if the new copy is the same then hunt in the registry for all keys belonging to spy sweeper once you have removed it from your computer also go-to program files directory and find the folder that belongs to spy sweeper and delete folder as most of un-installers don't remove the folder to program and try installing again and if all fails then then other thing I can suggest is move all your files to a safe place and redo your operating system from scratch but after you have installed os, install spy sweeper first then any other security software before you go to net.
