Question about Webroot Spy Sweeper (spysweeper) for PC

It sweeps forever but hangs up at about file/folders 20, 076. I can't stop it. I reboot and then set it not to sweep, it does it anyway. I can't delete it in task manager either.

When software does weird things like this, my first thought is to uninstall it and then reinstall it.
Do not run any other spyware software at the same time.

How do i delete cookies from my IRULU 7in.tablet


That would be done in the browser, in the settings. While you are there, you can also delete the cache files - also in the settings... a good thing to do once in a while.

I have been using spy sweeper for a couple of years and have had no problems until last week. Every time I try to run a sweep the program hangs my system so hard it requires a power reset. During a sweep...


boot the maschine in secure modus, backup your stuff !!!
1st solution is to try to re-install spysweeper, but as i have done a few times as so... its better to uninstall it fully, reboot, remove settings from sweeper in registry;
reboot again;
if everything goes well, install sweeper again;
if not after having confirmed, that your data is securely back-uped to external media, re-install system.

other case bevore, try to reset system to good working situation, but as you wrote, you removed dll... hmmm... think ur system s badly damaged. sweeper sometimes does fragment parts of system so badly, that theres no other option.
u could try to check system with other sweeping tool... happens, that bug gets looping system...
good luck

Ice maker hanges up ice forms on blades


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

Usually when ice (teardrops) form on the sweep blades it can be caused by a couple of things.

1. A dirty freezer door seal
2. A torn freezer door seal
3. Separation in the freezer door.
4, Calcium build up on the sweep blades.

Give the door seal a serious look for dirt and tears.

If the door seal looks ok and is clean then...

Wash the icemaker sweep blades with a mixture of vinegar and water. Give the freezer door some attention with that same mixture. Oils from hands or food can prevent a good seal on the freezer door. Just make sure you clean the icemaker sweep blades FIrst...

Do not use a new scotch brite pad on the sweep blades. USE an OLD one.... scratches on sweep baldes invite condensation when the door is opened.

Make sure to toss the next few cycles of ice cubes.

Doing the above should stop the ice build up on the sweep blades unless you have folks or visitors in the home that love holding the freezer door open for longer than normal.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Vertical bars and lines run up and down the screen. Need service manual or parts outlet


There is no such thing as a "vertical sweep circuit board" in that set. The vertical circuit is part of the sweep module. And BTW that type of symptom is more often a power supply filtering problem anyway.

Spy sweeper


In which place you click on the icon of sweep.
In the menu, on the screen or directly from the directory where you can find the sweep.

There are all kind of possibilities.

Problem with the registry.
File is moved
Version expired.

Probably the easiest way is to reinstall sweep.

Webroot spysweeper won't sweep


i had the same problem getting also an error message when i would log in about a valid definition file and go to program option page to update the definition file, after trying fixes from others i found one that said to reboot computer and put in safe mode, then open spy sweeper in safe mode, everything was in large print and nothing was turned on, so i rebooted the computer again and this time when the screen came up came up normally and not in safe mode and most of all there was no error message, my spy sweeper is now opened and now it is sweeping like it is suppose to do i don't know who was the person that posted the resolution but thanks it works so everyone try it.

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.

Sweep 2nd hand operation & watch time setting on my Pulsar watch.


The larger second hand on the Pulsar PF8036 is part of the stopwatch feature. The upper button starts/stops the stopwatch feature, and the lower button operates the lap/reset function. Why they made the larger hand work only with the stopwatch instead of the smaller hand to the left is beyond me, but that's how it is designed.
