    Webroot Spy Sweeper v3.0

    Picked this up from another forum, running as NonAdmin, no further details.

    Must be run as an administrator; will give an error and shut down if not.

    I don't have Spy Sweeper, but a lot of people recommend it and I was considering it.
    Running as a Limited User is another really good security practice, so I guess I'll pass
    on that particular anti-spyware product for others.

    I don't use the product myself, but the article you reference mentions version 3. Spy Sweeper is now up to version 4, and according to their site, "When you buy Spy Sweeper for your computer, all users on that PC get the full protection of the software. Spy Sweeper is managed by a primary user but all users can customize Spy Sweeper for their individual use, combining maximum protection with ultimate flexibility." I would assume from this that the application must be installed from an administrator account, but from there on in, it will run on any type of account.

    Spy Sweeper is recommended by Mike Healan at SpywareInfo (who knows what he is talking about, in my opinion!), and his latest newsletter has an offer on it for the next few days.

    Just in case you were thinking of buying it!
