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

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.

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.

Could not locate a valid definitions file


it is your purchased version or u got it from your friend or somewhere else.
if u purchased it then u have to just go to that site and follow the instruction to get some updation.
or this is your unpurchased version than it is good to remove it.
for that go to control panal and then select add/remove hardware or software. in this option u will get all the softwares.
select spy sweeper and select remove option.
that will remove spysweeper.

thanks

Option Page location


This is more than likely a message from your Anti-Virus program. Quick fix would be to uninstall your anti virus program and reinstall it. Or you can just uninstall this AV program and install the free AV program called AVG. Click on AVG to download it. Hope this helps.
