i closed off the progrgam and D/L the new version and now this problem.
I even went back to the link that I had from when I purchased the program in October 2004, closed off the spysweeper and tried again and the same results.
I checked the add/remove program section and it had a warning UNLIKE the other programs beside Webroot's Spysweeper in respect of Uninstall and so I did not try that.
I don't know what to do and so I decided to do a post.
My computer is xp home edition, notebook, intel pentium 4, 512 RAM, 1.9 ghz.
I look forward to comments.
