SPY SWEEPER “DEFINITIONS LIST” UPDATE INSTRUCTIONS
Note: If you want to turn off these notices that pop up on the screen inviting you to download program updates or definitions updates, click on the Options button on the left, then click to remove the check mark next to Automatically Check for Updates. Then minimize the Spy Sweeper program window.
1) Click on the No button on the window that pops up asking if you would like to download a newer version of Spy Sweeper. (You can do this at a later time; you are allowed to download & install newer versions of Spy Sweeper for one year if you purchase their program.)
2) Click on the Yes button on the window that pops up asking if you would like to download the “New Definitions List” or the list of new spyware. (It is always a good idea to keep the list of new spyware up-to-date.)
3) You will see a progress bar slowly make its way across to 100%. When it reaches 100%, the buttons on the left (such as Sweep Now, Remove, Results, Quarantined, etc.) should be clickable again (i.e., become more colorful).
4) You can then click on the Minimize button on the Spy Sweeper program window and then go on to something else. (Do not click on the Close or X button.)
Note: Although you could be doing other things on your computer while the Spy Sweeper program is downloading the update, it's probably a good idea to let the computer do the Spy Sweeper updates without any distractions.
