Do you trust SpySweeper, by webroot?

By jdclyde ·
I am not sure I trust this program.

I have the full package installed. Was at a security expo a few months ago, and they were handing out the full package free.

I have auto update turned off, yet it is still trying to contact home? Zone alarm said something and I said no. There wasn't anything I told it to go out for. X-(

When you select "shutdown" from the spysweeper menu, there are still a few processes running that I "do not have permission to stop".

When I load a program, I want to know what it is doing, and when it is doing it. I talked to the sales guy because I am testing this to see if I want to get it for work and he said he would have a tech call to answer my questions. Two weeks later, still no call.

Sorry, I just don't trust it. Do you?

Doesn't seem to find anything . . .

I usually get a few hits when I sweep my computer daily. Suddenly, a couple of weeks ago Spysweeper stopped finding anything. It simply tells me everything is fine. This seems unusual.

I don't think it is possible that there is nothing there to catch. Has anyone else seen this happening?
