Spy Sweeper conflicts with my McAfee. McAfee will not download with Spy Sweeper or elements thereof installed. Could not find Spy Sweeper in Control Pannel/Add/Remove. Did find it in All Programs and deleted it.
However, McAfee still will not download because 'Spy Sweeper' or elements thereof are installed.
I can not find it on the computer, using search, etc,.
any help would be appreciated.
However: There was no Spykeeper icon on the taskbar.
Neither spysweeper.exe nor wrssskd.exe was found on search.
When I downloaded and ran ccleaner.com, I ran the uninstall and none of the spysweeper items showed up.
I also ran the Cleaner, Registry and Scan for issues.
Thanks for introducing me to a nice program. I was happy to send a donation to them.
Then I tried again to download McAfee, and rcvd the same msg: 'Webroot Spy Sweeper must be removed before the McAfee download can continue'
I am an old retired soldier, and if this was not so much fun I would consider walking off the end of the pier.
Have you taken a look in the startup in msconfig? Start > Run > type in msconfig > OK > Startup tab > look for any entry for spysweeper, if there is, put a check in the box next to the entry > OK > reboot > on reboot > Configuration window > click box 'to not show again' > OK.
