Question about Webroot Spy Sweeper (spysweeper) for PC

1 Answer

I'm currently using webroot spyware. Though Mozilla and iTunes were working fine before I installed, after I installed the Spy Sweeper and then updated Mozilla and iTunes, they have been unable to connect to the internet. I believe this is because the Spy Sweeper is blocking their access, although since I haven't updated IE since installation it still functions fine. Help please?

Click on your tool icon at the top right of your screen(might look like a gear). Click on internet options. In the window that pops up click on security tab. Click on the trusted sites icon then click on the sites box. Scroll through the site and make sure the sites are in there and that the "enable protected mode" box isn't checked and exit. Click on tools again and internet options. This time click on the "privacy tab" and adjust your level to "allow all cookies and exit. This should work for you. Does your spyware have it'sown firewall?

The trail period for your Webroot spy sweeper had expired, so you have to buy the programme.

Alternatively your can use free version Malware or Anti-Spyware programs like Malwarebytes Anti-Malware or SUPERAntiSpyware which indeed very good software in detecting & removing Spyware or Malware from your PC/Laptop.

Hope it helps.

I don't believe it could do that, unless you have a firewall on it. If you have a firewall see if you can disable that and then if that doesn't work, you most likely should uninstall it because if it is going to create issues for you then you shouldn't use it.

Previously owned Webroot Spy Sweeper


It doesn't really matter which version of Spy Sweeper is on the installation disk, as long as the subscription associated with its product key hasn't expired. Spy Sweeper will immediately update to the current version after you install it.

The clock starts on your one-year subscription when you enter the product key during installation. If it's a 3-machine license, then the clock starts on all 3 copies when the first one is installed.
