Having problems with your Webroot Spy Sweeper (spysweeper) for PC ?

Alleged conflict mcafee w webroot spy sweeper

\015 I cannot update my mcafee virus program because I get an incorrect notice that mcafee is incompatible with webroot spy sweeper. Technicians at mcafee told me to uninstall mcafee and reinstall, but I still get the confict notice. I DO NOT HAVE ANY WEBROOT SPY SWEEPER PROGRAM AND NEVER HAVE HAD IN THE PAST. I checked my registry and could not find anything either. Mcafee technical services insists that I have webroot spysweeper installed somewhere, when I do not. No help.\015\012\015\012I even tried reinstalling mcafee in safe mode.\015

Answers :

Hi,
If spysweeper was installed then you should find it in "add remove programs" (XP) or "programs and features" (Vista) both can be found in the control panel.
When you open it look for webroot.
If it's not there type regedit in the search or run box, click on edit and select find, type webroot into the text box and search for any registry entry relating to spysweeper (webroot).
If your registry finds an entry click on find next and keep on doing this until the registry is cleared, then restart your PC and try and update Mcafee.
If you can't find any registry entry relating to webroot your PC maybe infected with spyware, malware or a virus. In that case i would perform a deep scan of the system whether your antivirus is updated or not.


Good luck and please post back if you need anymore help.

Just reinstall ur o/s and then unstall mcafee
