>> Hi I'm Jason Parker from Download.com. And today we'll be taking a first look at Web Root Spysweeper with anti-virus. The full version of the program is one of the best available for eradicating spyware from your hard drive. The addition of virus protection makes this great program even better. A full sweep can take up to forty five minutes, depending on the size of your hard drive, so you might want to choose a shorter scan. To do this, click on the sweep button and choose start quick sweep. This will only scan areas of the hard drive where spyware is most likely to hide. Like most good anti-spyware programs, Spysweeper asks you if you want update definitions when you launch the program. This will make sure that you'll always be able to detect the latest threats.

Even without the ability to remove threats, Spysweeper provides real time protection, which blocks threats when they try to infiltrate your system.
