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

Webroot AntiVirus w/Antispyware locks up during scan

\015 I have the latest version of Webroot AntiVirus with AntiSpyware in two laptops. Within the last week or so both computers will not complete a scheduled 'full sweep.' The computers will completely lock up about 3/4 of the way through the scan and they have to be 'hard booted' to clear the program from the screen. It will also lock up if if you try to manually run a full scan; however, it will run completely in 'Quick Sweep' mode.\015

Answers :

Try running it in "safe mode" to see if you can get through it that way. Windows Safe Mode can be done by restarting the computer and pressing F8 key while computer starts.

Our Norton AntiVirus is "green-checked" only 25% of the time. When I go to try to turn on the AutoProtect, it says, "error". This has been going on for about a month. We do the Live Update and the complete scan at least once a week. We reboot often after trying to get it on again, but it doesn't seem to make a difference. Is there an easy answer? Should we install a new antivirus program? We still have over 50 days left on our subscription.
