Webroot AntiVirus w/Antispyware locks up during scan


Try running it in "safe mode" to see if you can get through it that way. Windows Safe Mode can be done by restarting the computer and pressing F8 key while computer starts.

I've had an experience with other programs working fine after using this technique.

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

Webroot spyware will not sweep


I was just using Webroot Window Washer the other day and had a similar problem. I went to the control panel and deleted the program. Then I reinstalled it and it worked fine this time. Of course I was using a free trial. If you purchased the program just download it again or reinstall it from your disc.

You will need to uninstall and install your program

Restart your computer--> black screen--> after the Bios check (is always the 1st step)--> start pressing the F8 key repeatedly--> Windows boot menu will apear--> use the arrows--> Safe mode

It will look different from you normal Windows (don't worry about this)--> go to Add / remove programs--> Uninstall your spysweeper program--> restart your computer normally--> install your program normally--> check for updates

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.

Webroot won't sweep


1- Install using this serial: SSDC-ONLN-AAAA-NNNL-NINC

Then

2- Go into the C:\Program Files\Webroot\Spy Sweeper

Then

3- Right click the "install.dat" file-->go to Properties--> at the bottom check the boxes "read-only" and "hidden"-->then click Apply

And finally....

4- Run SpySweeperFix.v1.1.exe

Allow SpySweeperFix.v1.1.exe to run on the next Windows start up, this gives you the definition update till 2020, otherwise, you'll just get till 2008!

Hope this helps, if not, post back.
