I keep my program and definitions updated but I haven't had any slowdown problems. Is there a program update available for you yet? I did have a similar problem with my Anti-Virus program once. The next time the program updated, everything went back to normal.
I hope you can get the problem resolved. Best of luck.
I had encountered a problem with Spysweeper 4.5 earlier this week with an IE slowdown problem see
The result, Webroot asked me to shutdown their Active X shield to speed up IE explorer to normal.
Now I have a new Hosts files problem which seems to have just cropped up, I get message "Host file is too large" when I try to enforce hosts file shield in Spysweeper. Now my Host file shield in Spysweeper 4.5 can not be activated either. (Two shields down in a paid for product not good!)
I have a trouble ticket open for this problem also prior to this week Spysweeper would have received a 10 as a GREAT product from me, it's hovering around a 4 tonight.
Anyone else have the hosts file problem? Any fix?
