Talking Spy Sweeper and Vista

Hi,
I just bought 2 really nice computers with Vista on them I also have a disk for Webroot Spy Sweeper. I installed spyweeper in this computer and it didnt work. This disk worked perfect when i had XP. I attached a screenshot of the error message. Does anyone know where i can get a patch or something to fix this????
Thanks

That software may not be Vista compatible, yet. I recommend just using Windows Defender. It does a pretty good job and rated highly by PC Magazine.

Are you using the latest version of spysweeper? Only reason i ask is because you said you set it up from disc. If you havent got the latest version, then get it.

at the very least the new version is compatable. i know i've seen it on the compatibility site in teh "works" section. Raffaz has the link too, i'd give it, but i cant seem to find it at the moment.
