How Do I uninstall Spy Sweeper?
To uninstall Spy Sweeper: First, Spy Sweeper must be shut down. To do this, right click the Spy Sweeper tray icon (located by the clock on the bottom right of your screen), then select shut down...
There are two ways to uninstall Spy Sweeper:
1. Go to Start > All Programs > Webroot > Spy Sweeper > Uninstall Spy Sweeper
2. Follow the promts
1. Click Start>Control Panel.
2. Select Add/Remove Programs.
3. An alphabetical list will now populate.
4. Click on the program you wish to uninstall.
5. Click Change/Remove and follow the prompts.
If you are still unable to uninstall the program, please create a support ticket by clicking here.
Here's the link for the ticket.
I did all of that
When I tried the link you gave me, I kept getting zapped with active x's, but allowed them and then was told my support time had expired. Whatever that means?
Wow what a gay program
hm.. if you cant unistall it and you dont want it around why not go to your program files and just delete it cuz wherever you installed it from might not have installed the uninstall i knoe that happened to me sometimes
I can't delete Webroot Spyware
I did that too. It tells me that the program does not exist. And it's right there in my control panel!!!! When I go to Programs, to Webroot, spyware, uninstall, it says "unins000.dat does not exist. cannot uninstall"
It's supposed to expire in 4 days. I'm gonna see what happens then I guess.
And it's right there in my control panel!!!!
I have Webroot Spy Sweeper install and it isn't in my control panel. When I read a post and delete is used, it makes me wonder how the uninstall was performed. You need to uninstall, not delete a program. Is that what you did? I'd recommend you start over by installing the program then uninstalling it again. Webroot Spy Sweeper can be uninstalled through its own uninstaller or the control panel's add/remove programs.
(NT) I was thinking about doing that. Thanks:-)

sarmlibok82, Your Post Was Removed..
Welcome to the CNET forums.. Although your input is certainly appreciated, you posted to a thread which is 2 years old so I doubt if anyone will be helped by your submission. And most importantly, you provided a direct link to to a download without any real explanation.. In such situations, please provide a link to the actual page where one can download the "cleanup file" and if providing the direct link is unavoidable, please describe EXACTLY where the downloadable file is coming from and what it will do..
Clearly, instructing a "newbie" computer user to simply "Click here" is not a safe thing to do.
Hope this helps.
unable to remove using control panel, when I click on remove I get a message saying it can not be removed because it dose'nt exist.
I have also tried task manager--unsucessful.
Permit me to suggest Revo Uninstaller Freeware download at http://www Revouninstaller.com. This uninstaller can uninstall the program and assist you in deleting all entries of the same in your registry. Just follow the instructions to the letter.
Hope this helps.
If all else fails download Revoe you will find it a Godsend.Go to Google it's a free one but worths it"s weight in gold.Tell me how you liked it.
uninstalling webroot - Download http://download.webroot.com/
Hi I wrote to webroot support and received a return email and because so many folks are having the same issue I have, I thought I would share with everyone having an uninstall problem. I have not executed this solution yet, but suspect it will work.
Reply from Webroot Support:
I'm not sure if one of my colleagues in the Consumer Technical Support Team have got back to you with an uninstaller, but I've managed to gather the details for you.
To completely uninstall all traces of any Webroot product please follow these steps.
1. Download http://download.webroot.com/SSECleanup.exe and save it to your Desktop
2. Goto Start, Run and enter cmd
3. In the command prompt window that should open, drag the downloaded file to the cmd window, (this should populate it with the file path for you) and then add -remove and hit enter
This process will then remove all traces of the product from that machine.
Did not work.
I tried that and when I rebooted, it was not uninstalled.
Well i had webroot problem too
l deleted webroot from my window vista home premium but it kept poping up your subscription has expired .i could not stop that even though l already uninstalled the software completely. And after months of pain one day l started my computer clicked on the little window loggo on the buttom left corner and typed in webroot on the space that poped up and it says retype the letters and number you see and i did and that finally got rid of webroot for good l was so happy lol.

How to Uninstall Webroot
It looks like this topic was originally started in 2006 but somehow still shows up towards the top of search results. Much of the information in this topic is outdated, such as SSECleanup (which was actually for the enterprise version). Time for an update then. As of the 2012 version of Webroot and onwards, the old removal tools no longer work because Webroot was completely redesigned. However, if you're running into the sort of problem joeyokeke was running into, we can help with that. Please take a look at this guide to learn how to uninstall using a command-line function: https://community.webroot.com/t5/Webroot-SecureAnywhere-Antivirus/PC-Uninstallation-Option-Missing-from-Control-Panel-and-Start/ta-p/34688#.Uf1qvJK1GIo
