I recently received this email from webroot: ‘PayPal Account Modified’ themed emails lead to Black Hole Exploit Kit‘PayPal Account Modified’ themed emails lead to Black Hole Exploit Kit. Could that be connected to a Bill Me Later account? Also, will web root find these "black Hole Explorer Kits and what is the Black Hole Explorer kit? Thanks, Donna
Heya everyone - I am no stranger to forums but am new to this one. I purchased this product on a reccomendation and could not be happier. I have my personal PC protected as well as my wife's and mother in law's lap tops. I will soon be upgrading and would like to protect my new investment with this program as well. I have a couple questions that have led me here but I am going to search a few old posts first to see if I can find the anwers myself! Cheers!
I'm not sure where to ask a question. I put this someplace else and it was deleted with no answer, so I'll try here. This morning on the Today show they gave a report about a hacker scam. Evvidently, a user will get a spoof email from UPS or Fedex. When it is opened you get a red screen and it locks up your computer. You have to pay $500 to get it unlocked. If you wait too long you have to pay $1000. Does Webroot have a protection for this?
I purchased Webrot Securuty Anywhere in December 2014 for 12 months. Today I suddenly got the message that my licence has expired leaving me vulnerable attacks. I tried all ways to contact anyone from any webroot suppprt teams. It is impossible to contact anyone to get this problem resolved. I am forced to download AVG free at least I will have some sort of protection from doing that. At the moment to me it looks as though my efforts to contact webroot will be ignored I cannot ask for my payment to be refunded. Is there anyone that has had a simular experience and is is solvable.

Hello, I have been using Webroot SecureAnywhere for four years now. It is a fast and sensitive AV solution, albeit sometimes too sensitive. WSA recently flagged some exe files (in action) as infected, which quickly stopped these apps from working. Closer inspection showed that over 7,000 files on my PC were infected with Neshta.A (about 4,000 had been automatically backed up to another partition), which Webroot had never detected in these four years. I know WSA is fast as it looks for active threats, because the dormant threats are not doing anything. But it would be a nice advanced feature to have so WSA could do a custom deep scan and recognize this dormant code which replicates like gangbusters. I lucked out and stumbled upon an AVG free download which [u]cleaned[/u] the Neshta.A infected files, saving me much time in repairs. Windows Defender detected these files too, but quarantined them (like WSA). WSA needs to have the abili
:D Hi I’m Terry aged 63 from England United Kingdom. I’m trying out this Security Suite as I’m becoming more concerned about Online Identity protection during Banking or Buying stuff generally. I have been using ‘Bullguard Premium’ which has a identity protection section, where you enter all your bank and card details, and the web is scan for suspicious activity relating to your bank account or whatever. This of course is all well and good, but I’d prefer the protection to be more ‘up-front’ which WebRoot seem to offer. Yes, I have also tried Bitdefender with it’s Safepay Browser, but most people use say Firefox or whatever to look around the web, and it’s bit of a pain to open Safepay just to complete a transaction, notwithstanding that it is very secure. I have in fact used WebRoot many years ago but it has changed a lot. WebRoot’s speed of AV scanning is really awe-inspiring, unmatched by any other product I’ve used and very ‘light’ as a program so I have read.
Wondering if there is any 'real' support from webroot... apparently my address on my credit card is wrong, but after confirming with the bank, it's perfectly fine. Three times tried with customer service and three times told they can't do anything even though the information they have is perfectly fine. And three times my bank has said it's perfectly fine. What a way to lose a potential customer... if there is anybody from webroot who knows what they are doing and can actually help instead of wasting my time, I'd love to know... but if this is the service I get already, starting to doubt the product too.
I hate looking stupid but I usually have little say over the matter. I've wiped my hard drive clean but in a moment of rare mental clarity I backed everything up into 'Back up and Sync.' How do I retrieve these irreplaceable gems of wit and wisdom??? It's clear that I can click and drag but that seems to remove said file from back up and sync and then it only lives on my hard drive? Even I understand it would be better to have it in both places. Thanks much
I was advised that I needed to call Microsoft at 855-790-73126 because pop up I had viewed put my personal data at risk,. Scanned with Webroot and no viruses were detected, Is there reason to be suspicious of this warning? Leecurtis
tHIS HAS BEEN way too hard to get in! so I'm a perturbed person just now...Webroot acted like they didn't know me yet it appears they've been watching and accepted my money. When I use/have Webroot I suppose I should get rid of and deny any other "cleaners"? RE SUBJECT: If we like it should I take recomendations to remove programs? I like to travel light
