A while back I downloaded and installed WebRoot Spy Sweeper and have been using it.

I now want to uninstall it but cannot!

If I use 'Add and remove' or go to All programs and select WebRoot then Spy Sweeper then Uninstall an error window pops up "Runtime Error (219:73): Could not call proc."

I have done this after cliking SpySweeper in the system tray and choosing shut down.

I also ran Search all files and programs Spysweeper, select all and delete......no joy!

Any idea what else I can try please?

Hi doresy,

Have you looked in the Spy Sweeper folder, most probably C:\Program Files\Webroot\Spy Sweeper and looked for the uninstaller.
Have you tried to uninstall it in Safe Mode?
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

Thanks for the heads up I've been trying to figure this out for about a year. How long should it take for the window to close? I've had it open now for about an hour and it doesn't seem like it's doing anything yet when I try to close it it says "Windows cannot end this program. It may need more time to complete an operation"

Thanks again for any help :thumbsup:
