TripleHelix is always willing to lend a hand and share what he knows. I invited him to do a little interview so we could learn more about him and of course he agreed! [b]Tell us a little bit about yourself?[/b] I live in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada about 30 miles east of Toronto and I've lived here my whole life. I’m married; it will be 16 years this year. My wife Lisa is my best friend and a great person. She supports me with all the time I've spent online helping people on many security related forums over the past 15 years. We have 3 chihuahuas.

Hi all :D, We all received the community dispatch e-mail from Webroot a few days ago. In it there was a GREAT link where Daniel was interviewed.... I think that i won't be the only one to be VERY happy to better know the highest ranked member of our community! In this article we have become more acquainted with this so friendly "guru"always ready to help others in a very personal manner,... as if the latter ones were unique. We also discovered the experience of his life so far, his hobbies and last but not least his [b]jovial[/b] face expressing intelligence and kindness. I am very proud to be his cyber friend as i regard him with high esteem and respect. I'm sure every member will agree with me and join me to wholeheartedly congratulate Daniel. Cheers, Herve .
Just wanted to say hello to the community: Hello! :) I'm Max, a system engineer from Germany, and I'm currently evaluating Webroot SecureAnywhere for our company. I discovered Webroot on Spiceworks( thanks again Nic for answering my questions) and got interested because of its innovative way. I've found many interesting posts here, so i thought it would be a good idea to register myself.

Hi folks.....I’ve been using McAfee Total Protection for ten years and for many reasons I want to make a change so I just downloaded a trial version of WSA Security Complete and have a few questions. 1. Does WSA have a ‘lockdown’ feature similar to McAfee’s? 80% of our PC use is off-line. No need for an internet connection. With McAfee I click ‘firewall’, the page has options and I click ‘lockdown’, I use ‘stealth mode’ for browsing. I’ve looked around in WSA and do not see any options to do this. 2. Our PC’s and laptops are older running XP with 1 GB of memory so I use the “Quick Clean” feature in McAfee all the time. Does WSA have anything similar? 3. Using McAfee a full scan takes over an hour for about 150K files. The first WSA scan upon installation took 13 minutes. I ran a second that took 3 minutes or so for about 27K files. Wow. Why is there such a difference in the number of files scanned? I’m looking forward to using WSA and
I’m an artist with little knowledge of computers so any help would be very much appreciated. I run security Anywhere and I think it’s a great system, just lately it detected a virus which it quarantined and then removed. My problem is when I run system analyzer I keep getting the message in the threats section ‘There is one active infection on your computer’. I’ve run a scan and its shows I do not have an infection – HELP!!!
Been using Webroot for a few months now on my PC. However, installing it on my smartphone and tablet, I have problems. It will not let me without saying "error". Also, my PC is a Windows 7, using Google Chrome. Lately, my screen has been doing a split second flash, as if it looked like something was trying to interfere. I don't know, but I do not have any detections of malware, viruses, threats etc.. Any suggestions? Thank you!
Hi all :D Please could I ask` what may seem like a strange…..but totally genuine question as I don’t know where else I could ask it……… about 6 weeks ago I set up a Skype account in order to speak with a Doctor in America as a patient, purely for medical purposes. I only have two contacts, this Doctor and a friend who helped me set up my Skype account. Since then, every day when I’m on my Laptop, I’m disturbed by that echoing bubble sound that Skype makes and there are between 2and 4 men (always men) messaging me, asking to make contact. I don’t have my picture or any status or info…… these are all unsolicited. They are mostly USA, though some Australia and a couple have been UK….. a lot of military profile pictures…… strangely; ‘Generals’ lol and ……..a few even of Doctors? It all seems very fake Why is this? Is it a security risk? a scam? How do they find me? And how do I stop it. Thank you in advance Kindlyz Allyb.
Hello , I am using windows 7 64 bits on Intel i5. After playing a pop up flash movie my system is behaving weirdly. I am getting a lots of pop ups all the time and pre-installed windows defender is also not working. May anyone please help me to identify the problem and what is going on inside my system?
Hello, and just got webroot..Not sure how it works, but it got some great reviews, price was right, etc. I do a lot of "sweepstaking" and believe me won many many things. Problem is, get sooo much spam, junk, etc. Which I am willing to put up with, worth the benefits for me. But, since I had webroot, have noticed so much of my junk, spam is going to my inbox. And also, (dumb question) what is the little lock for? Am I suppose to run it on my own or what. Thanks for your patience.
The renweal process is confusing. I have 9 days left on my existing subscription, so Ipurcased ar enewal license. Its a different licens soit appears my protection will not automatically extend and I must upfdte my licenses on each computer. Is this correct? IS there a way to link the two licenses so my current subscription just extends at the end of it's period? thanks,john
Hi Guys, My Webroot security is up for renewal..........can I just ask.....is the ‘complete’ the best package to have??......... Just to refresh so you don’t assume I’m some sort of joker (and to those who don't know).......I'm bedbound, chronically ill from a virus, contracted 3yrs ago following a routine tooth op. It entered my brain and central nervous system and has affected all my systems and organs...... My laptop is now literally my whole world. However, I’m not up to complex answers. I just didn’t want anyone at a quick glance to think it was a shallow or trivial question, without knowing the facts. :$ Unfortunatly I can’t keep up to all security information as my cognition is impaired and fluctuates greatly. This will be my 3rd year of Webroot security and I greatly appreciated being excepted into the community (though are can’t participle as often or to the level that I would like) but where I can ask dumb question……. And it be OK
having been through (alive and kind of old) during the Tandy computer days, the DOS days, and now everything should be a breeze. and yet spending time now in sites of "why" and "how?" A webroot customer now going on 4 or 5 yrs...and BAM, crap hits the fan, no wait, it goes through the fan, and no company, hp, ms, webroot caught it. Any youngsters, anybody at all here, do you know anything about AMD Gaming Evolved program that is connected with Raptr Desktop App and AMD Catalyst Control Center that will crash nearly everything?? Googled "is Raptr Desktop App a virus" results in: if attempted to uninstall a trojan horse is activated? Anyone know about this stuff? MS spent over 4 hrs last nite fixing it...it didn't work. Just curious...and attempted to contact webroot chat....it opened and then it's busy! A service meant to guard the simplest of comands...busy. Call back later??? Webroot!
I usually don't join "communities" but I would really like to learn more about internet security and how to better use Webroot. I bought my subscription a couple of months ago and I really like everythng about it so far. Like many, I've used Norton and McAffee in the past. Webroot seems more streamlined and thorough to me. I haven't fully explored the community topics yet. Has anyone mentioned the need for compatibility with Windows 8 phones? I'd really like to use Webroot on my Nokia 1520. I use to be an Apple guy, and I've happily reverted back to Microsoft. Droping my iPhone was the last step. Feel free to contact me. I look forward to learning from all of you here.
Hello! I'm Mary and have been using Webroot internet security plus (version 220.127.116.11) for a couple of years. The renewal offer (through Best Buy) expired a month ago---oops. I bought a new physical copy (from Best Buy). So, do I unistall the expired one, then install the new one?
