In case it is not uninstalling then kindly download this software from the link provided below and uninstall the software. Re-boot the machine run chkdsk and then install and update the software.

considering as you can get products that do the same job for free, not much however, the retail price for the latest version is 19.99 so yours being an old outdated version, errr a lot less. p&p will probably cost more than it's worth.

Hello there. To better understand your concern and isolate the issue, i will be asking a few more questions for troubleshooting.
1.What is the operating system on your computer? 2.When do you exactly get the error message,is it during the uninstall process itself? or is it during the reinstall of the software? 3.Is it configured to automatically scan your computer at a particular date and time? 4.Have you installed any other anti virus or any updates that you've made on webroot like the active notifications?

I suggest you use AVG anti virus, since its proven as the best free anti virus software.


For your anti virus webroot, if its corrupted and if it was unlegal that there was delocking mode so it cannot be downloaded again before cleaning your whole OS. Im sorry for telling you this but its reallity :(

Please rate my solution, that would be really nice from you :)

make sure you're connected to the internet. If still this doesn't help try uninstalling the version you have and download the current one. This should fix the problem.

Hope this helps.

1. Click on CTRL+ALT+ DEL keys (All at once) to bring up the task manager.

2. Under the Applications tab>Click on webroot spysweeper to highlight it. Then click on end task.

5. Scroll down thru all Programs until you find WebRoot Spysweeper. Click it to highlight it- then click uninstall.

6. When it is finished uninstalling-click on Start>Restart pc.

I am glad to HELP YOU!

If you had ALREADY an antivirus installed and even so the system was attacked, I'd suggest you to do one of the two things:
1. make sure the antivirus database is up-to-date
2. if the option 1. is done and still no effect, then switch to another antivirus software.
I'd suggest you for the option 2. to install a FREE EDITION of
# Avira
# Avast
and the list is long... I am using AVG Free Edition for years and I never had a problem.

My best regards!
... and don't forget to RATE, please...

I would uninstall it and reinstall it.
It is also possible that you have a virus on the computer that is messing with it.
I would suggest you go to www.malwarebytes.org and download and run malwarebytes to see if there might be something bad running on your system.

Never used webroot so I'll take a guess way out in left field and say that you are using two antivirus's and they are conflicting. If so I would use only one and you would have better functionality. If that isn't the problem, get us corrected and we'll get you on the right track.

I used to work with spy sweeper very often at my old job and I ran into this every now and again. Generally Spy Sweeper would need to be re-installed, or installed over to fix this. I recommend going to their website, and downloading the most recent version of the software. You should then be able to install the software, and it should turn your spy sweeper off and write over the bad files. If this doesn't fix your issue, I would recommend uninstalling your current version of SS w/AV and then once again installing from the website.

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?

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.

You can get it from HERE (somewhere else than BestBuy...).

Good Luck!

If you already have a virus then it may stop you from downloading antivirus software. Restart your machine and keep tapping F8 and you should get a new menu
Select 'safe mode with networking' then try again!
