Well, there are other things that don't get started in safe mode. So I
can't be sure that it's spy sweeper. And since I can't turn spy
sweeper off because I don't have admin privs, there's no way for me to
be sure, so 'maybe' it's the culprit.

I doubt the folks that make spy sweeper would call this a bug. It's
probably doing exactly what it's supposed to do.
