Spy Sweeper Start Up Problem

The only problems that I experienced with SpySweeper are as follows: Win 98 - After boot up, the computer will not open any application until SpySweeper has done it's initialization thing, All I can say, is that any company looking to expand and grow should not forget what got them there - in Webroot's case it is great antispyware software for the his comment is here
Like I said before, the chance of you getting a Real Virus that is dangerous is very low. You can go under Task Mananger and under processes and manually end those programs, if you feel you are able too. The SpySweeper.exe file is not a Windows system file. I hate them. http://www.file.net/process/spysweeper.exe.html

Uninstalling this variant: You have the option to remove the entire program Spy Sweeper or Spy Sweeper Core using Windows Control Panel, visit the www.webroot.com support page or update the program. It is rather random but has a lot to do with how long the computer has been operating. On top of all that, the Handle count for the SpySweeper.exe process is through the roof - 13,000 minimum and up to 35,0000! The chances that you'll get a virus that Spy Sweeper can't find and remove is low.
One of the posters here said the Key Logger shield was the culprit. It's still one of the best at sweeping your computer. Glad I found this blog though – thanks for the info all. John says: Sep 16, 2006 at 9:34 pm I am having a problem with an upgrade I did to SpySweeper 5.0.
Sweep your looking for. https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40788/start-up-problem/ Add or Remove programs will not uninstall the program. I'm forever downloading programs off the net and installing them. I wonder if Webroot will refund me 250 dollars I lost due to me computer shutting down while playing a winning poker hand?

Until this morning, when I booted up the first thing on my screen would be a notice from SpySweeper, apparently just to let me know that it is looking after me.

I did run in safe mode all the spyware and other suggested programs and did delete numerous items, however the monitor problem still did not resolve.

Anybody that is not experiencing performance problems may have already disabled this Shield. Then it won't run. Hubert Heller says: Aug 12, 2006 at 6:22 pm I couldn't agree with you more. Otherwise safe.
The "IE Favorties" shield was selected and I had too many entries in the "Favorites" folder.
