Compatability issue


On Feb. 12, 2008, Microsoft released an update that fixed the recent compatiblity issues between Windows Vista and Webroot Antivirus/Spy Sweeper that were a result of a previous Windows Jan. 8, 2008 update.
Recommended Fix:
To fix this issue, update your copy of Windows Vista with the latest updates available as of 2/12/2008. For many users, Windows Vista will update automatically at its next scheduled time, but the update is also available as a manual download. See below for instructions on how to update Windows Vista.
We also recommend updating your copy of Webroot Antivirus/Spy Sweeper. The latest version does not experience any compatibility issues and it is generally recommended that you update your software to the latest version in order to ensure maximum security and protection of your PC.

Error states Spy Sweeper is not compatible with 64-bit operating systems.


This from the Webroot Web site on supported operating systems:

Windows Vista® (32-bit versions of Home Basic, Premium, Business, or Ultimate), Vista SP1 (32- and 64 bit versions of (Home Basic, Premium, Business, or Ultimate).

So, assuming you have bought the latest Spysweeper (and assuming you have Vista 64 bit) , then you need to upgrade your Vista to SP1.

Webroot spysweeper installation problem


Dear Wlutke,
As far as I know spysweeper works good only in Windows XP not in Vista. You contact spysweeper customer care and tell your problem. Each software has some trail period. So if you were not satisfied with the product you can return it and get your money back.

Spy sweeper reintalled 3 times and does not work


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.

hope this is helpful

Spy sweeper not working


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 2006!

Hope this helps, if not, post back.
