    Default Zone Alarm is blocking a Spy Sweeper activity


    My Webroot Spy Sweeper product is being blocked from updating the registry.

    I don't think Spy Sweeper is doing anything harmful. The Spy Sweeper I am using is just the Spy Sweeper, NOT the Spy Sweeper with Anti Virus.

    Is there a way to let Spy Sweeper update the registry (see Appendix A below)?

    Below in Appendix A is my Zone Alarm Log and Appendix B is info about the Zone Alarm version I am on.

    Thanks in advance!

    no, SS is trying to access a zonealarm registry entry. To avoid tampering ZA refuses any action against its own processes or registry entry.
    Be careful running multiple security tools, its does not always mean better security but software conflicts and tools blocking each other.

    Also never run two antivirus or two firewalls at the same time.
