Spy Sweeper problems

  1. Lately I have been having issues with my Spy Sweeper. It keeps on having a pop up message saying "The communication Shield has blocked access to: (a website I've never heard of)" It's not one here and there, it happens quite frequently. Just in case people ask, I have Spybot: search and destroy along with glary utilities. I've ran numerous scans with both spybot and spy sweeper and nothing has come up and the problem persists. Also, when I have my mouse on the desktop, it's acting like it's loading something, the swirl thing keeps on spinning, but it never loads it.

    You may need to uninstall Spyware Sweeper and Spybots S&D
    If you have any issues uninstalling Spyware Sweeper use this tool

    Once fully removed, restart and re-install Spyware Sweeper, if you still want this tool
