    I have used Spy Sweeper for several years. I recently bought a laptop, downloading newest Spy Sweeper on in and on my existing computer. I have noticed the laptop freezing up, and antivirus and Ad-aware scanning stops and freezes before scan completes. If I disable Spy Sweeper, the computer and scans do not freeze.

    Any suggestions? I personally would like to get rid of this newer Spy Sweeper version.

    If its causing these freeze ups then I would uninstall it, then reinstall it and see how it plays, if it keeps freezing up time to get rid of it although it is an excellent product!

    Have you any HIPS programs like processguard, appdefend/regdefend or antihook as these don't play to well with spysweeper? You could try and turn off its real time protection features and see how it runs?
