I used Webroot SpySweeper for many years on XP with no problems whatsoever. I
felt naked without it. However, on Vista, even with their 5.3 version, I had
nothing but conflicts and slowdowns. Just for your information, based upon my
personal experiences, if you have a problem with SpySweeper be prepared to
wait many, many days for a response from support, the response often being
totally incorrect or having nothing to do with the problem you reported. They
have the worst technical support I have ever encountered. Before Vista came
along, SpySweeper in my opinion was superior to anything in its class.
However, I have no use for a superior product when the support for that
product sucks. Again, these factual statements are based upon my personal
experience with the product. I am not bashing the software in any way.
