[b]I installed Java to play pool with my sister. We usually play on Yahoo Messenger, but when I went to accept her invitation I had a message from Weboot that said, security was blocking Java from working. What do I need to change on Weboot in order for allow Java to be unblocked? Thanks in advance for any help I can get. [/b]
Window Washer or Secure Anwhere?
I like the old Webroot Window Washer, this secure anywhere, just doen't seem all that great too me. I actually still have Webroot Window Washer on an old disk, it's v220.127.116.111 and I've decided too use it instead of secure anywhere. I don't see anywhere on the secure anywhere where I can manually wash the free space. I never thought one shoe fit theory, wish they'd bring back a stand alone window washer!
New to Forum – NEED HELP!!!
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!!!

Password Problems with Internet Explorer Browser
I have only been using Webroot for about a month and scan my computer daily, sometimes more than once. Last week, I noticed my sign in for Yahoo wouldn't work. I can sign in at my work computer, but not the home computer where Webroot is installed. Would Webroot allow something in that corrupted my sign in ability?
top arcade hits
I have a problem with constant messages from top arcade hits wanting to download. When I try to uninstall (I never insatlled) in the control panel (windows 7) I get a message asking if I want to allow the program to make changes to this computer. When I select NO, I get a message stating I must use administrative privleges to unistall. I am always logged in as adminstator. Can anyone offer suggestions? I understand there is a dangerous virus associated with this software. Patrick486

I haven't beeen experiencing any issues so far, but I was wondering if n e 1 could tell me any strange behavior to watch out for on my computer. Thanks! Type@cha@L8r.com, deebs(Daria B):)
I'm here thanks to an unknown person Thanks & kudos
Joined on Monday. Never received the email to confirm so could not post. FInally some one on the phone in Sales said he would contact someone that might help and they would be in touch. That was yesterday afternoon. This morning I started what was becoming a daily ritual to ask for email resend when I saw the screen had changed. It said my email address had been verified. To whomever made this happen - Thank you very much. I think all problems have been solved by telephone technical support but it's good to know if I do have a question I can post here for help. Thanks again. ehw
new and need help
[spoiler] [/spoiler] I am new to Webroot. I used to be on the PC Tools Internet Security software, so Webroot seems rather simple compared to that. I run a proprietary software program that I frequently cut and paste words from other programs into the proprietary program. However, Webroot does not allow me to paste into my proprietary program. I'm wondering if someone can tell me how to tell Webroot that my proprietary program is "okay." Tech support for my proprietary program suggested I add the program to an "exceptions" list in Webroot, but I cannot find such a list. Thanks,
New to Windows 8 - New to WebRoot - and lost
Hello everyone, It's nice to find you and as I expect I shall be here often, a short intro may be in order. I'm not new to computers but most assuredly new to (and exasperated with) Windows 8. After all, I'm an old lady and was raised with the notion that "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". I see no need for CHARMS, nor for it to take 4 clicks to shut my computer down, ahh but there you are, eh? Sometimes change really sucks. Here's a huge aggrivation with this new computer: It came with Norton on it, but I purchased Webroot for obvious reasons. I allowed Norton to expire, installed Webroot, and NOW I keep getting Norton's annoying popup asking me to upgrade. I do NOT WANT TO. I have no need to. I have Webroot and so far all is well (except for detesting Windows 8, ugh) Please, anyone, how the heck do I remove unwanted Trial popups? With this new Windows 8 configuration, I can barely navigate around my own computer, so I am truly at your mercy here. Let
Hi, I just started using Webroot SecureAnywhere. I was previously using Bitdefender Total Security but it's autoscan feature drove me nuts. It would constantly scan my laptop every time I took it out of sleep mode. I decided to give Webroot SecureAnywhere a try and I like what I see so far.
Need help uninstalling suspected malware from Mindspark
I inadvertently started to install a Mindspark.com program called FromDoctoPDF. When I noticed it was about to change my home page and search engine I stopped the install. Now I can't uninstall it from Control Panel. It's looking for a file on my computer names 65Bar.dll and it doesn't exist. Mindspark recommended installing another of their programs and using Control Panel to remove - now I have two of their programs on my compuer. The readable text in the non-removable files say in part - Do not remove and I am also not able to remove them by select and delete. Webroot tech support says they don't find anything wrong on my computer, but I really want to get rid of these files. Would appreciate any help... Sorry if this is too long... first time on a forum board. Al
I think I have been the victim of a webroot scam..
A tech cleaned up my computer yesterday and downloaded Webroot on my computer. Now I have discovered: 1. The $250.00 that I paid for this service was a bit more than the $50.00 others are paying. 2. He only downloaded it onto my laptop but my desktop is still using PCMRI. Which was also a rip-of. 3. I did not receive a key code for my rather expensive security. 4. I am unable to make contact with him. 5. He told me this was a one time expense. "The security is for your lifetime". 6. I am feeling incredibly old and very stupid at the moment. Any suggestions? margot927
Hello, I just recently purchased Webroot and it works great! The only real problem I have encountered so far is the "security setting" blocking an applet in an online class I am taking. I don't want to mess up the settings but I need to allow the applet to pop up to do the project. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated! Fred
changing keycodes procedure
I have too many subscriptions and wish to change one of our computers, where the subscription is about to expire, to another keycode from another subscription, which i just renewed with only one computer on it. I am not sure how to make this happen. Can someone please advise. Thanks.
Registered for this one reason.
Alright so I recently coded and published my website "KissLander.com" and one of my followers on twitter tweets to me saying WEBROOT is blocking it saying it's potentially threatening? I'd like this FIXED asap. I have nothing but the forum software installed on that site and nothing malicious. This is false accusations and insulting.
I am trying to deactivate Webroot Secure Anywhere from my old computer (Windows 7) and install it on Windows 8. The online instructions say to go to PC Security, click on name of the computer which I want to deactivate, and choose "Commands Tab" and then choose "Activate". The problem is that I do not have a Commands Tab online. What do I do?
Help removing popup from senior Mom's computer please :)
