Part of spysweeper. Keep it, best anti spyware I've ever had

SSU is part of Spy Sweeper, which as a package is a power-sucking system hog. If SSU is running, you may as well go to lunch, as your computer is going to be operating with the speed of a 286. I personally recommend ditching the Webroot software and going to something that isn't a system hog. Computer Associates "Internet Security Suite" is a huge improvement over Webroot. PTG
ssu.exe can be causing your computer to run slow if multiple instances of this pricess can be found running in your process explorer. If this happens, shutdown webroot, and uninstall it. Kyle Horton
