As I said above, these two programs don't seem to work well together.

I have installed the kerio firewall, recommended by an expert, but now the
spyware sweep of the Spy Sweeper takes more than an hour, while it used to
take 5-10 minutes. Also strange, I could not place a support ticket with
Webroot without turning the firewall off (page seemed empty).

It doesn't seem to be a memory isue. What could cause the Spyware Sweeper
from Webroot to slow down so much ? Especially the scanning of files is very
slow.

No problems with normally browsing the web, except that maybe it's a bit
slower.

Any advice appreciated.
