Hello Sports Fans
I'm a newby here but would like to be a "reglar". I have been messing with the hardware end for 25 years or more. I leave the software up to you egg heads but if it's hardware...unless it's just broke...most times I can make it work when no one else can. If you have plenty of money...you just buy new...but po' folk have to try to make the stuff they have plod on. i'm not your average twerp (not that there's anything wrong with that) but I live out in the rural setting where people are struggling for every dime. Computer work is not a priortiy until it goes out on the farm and farmer JOHN has lost his data for 800 milk cows . lol...he doesn't want to spend $1000 for a new unit but he'll pay me $2000 to get what he had back. BACK UP? HUH? When I finish with them, they know how to back up and forward, how to type, how to spell their name. It's not just about fixing the modem...it's a whole education for them.. Anyways...i'm proud to be an American helping Americans.
I am strongly considering WRA Complete
and I need some information. First of all I have an Android tablet that is just a low end one that only has version 2.3.3, will WRA complete work on that version, it is a Coby Tablet. Another question I have is this, I am currently using the free version of AVAST on my machines. Should I remove it or can it be used along with WRA Complete? If it can be used, will it cause confusion? Thank you for any help anyone can give me.
Welcome new Community User - MBinKS
Good Morning, Happy Saturday, Sept 1,2012 New Community User Mike B here in the great state of Kansas. My wife and I have started a new home based internet business. We have quickly discovered that access to the internet and a good running PC network is absolutely critical. In fact, these have become our "Achilles Heels" so to speak, one for our right foot and one for the left. LoL. Quick General Question for the community, When running a PC scan via webroot, Is it best to be Online and connected to the internet network or Offline? Blessings my Friends, MBinKS
Oldman here, I finally figured out how to reach this point, not bad for an "Goldman". All this technology can be hard on us older folk. Ahh, to be young... I'm so glad you youngsters are here to assist people like me. Thanks and I hope to talk to you out in the community... "Oldman"
Howdy My name is Lucas
Hi follks, I'm a Webroot Esclation Engineer. Have been involved with computers at various levels for more than 15 years. From Point of Sale installaiton and configuration, large enterprises, main frame, desktop, and your local computer tech shop. In my time away from work, I enjoy working on 3d Graphics and Effects, painting, listing to music, playing video games, and most recently wrenching on my Imprezza. I've been lurking on the forums for a while and just figured it would be time to make introduction. Thanks!! Lucas Webroot Escalation Engineer
Hello one and all. I'm new to the community, but not to WSA, which I've been using for just over two months. Sure, we've had our issues, but I've yet to find a lighter, more powerful AV program. I currently run it alongside Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO with nary an issue (which as I understand it, WSA was designed to do). Many thanks to Webroot, and of course the guys at Prevx, for such a sublime piece of software.
Hi all! I thought I'd introduce myself as a new member, and user of WSA Complete. I was first introduced to WSA at Wilders Security Forum, which made me make sure I visited the Webroot stand at InfoSec last week :D I'm very glad I did, WSA is running like a dream! In "real life" I am a network manager for an educational organisation, where security is our number one priority. Currently running ESET throughout, with many other policies / software. I'll be watching WSA closely when our contracts run out :D Glad to meet you all!
Hello, I'm Anna
Hello, all. My name is Anna and I'm a Front Line Engineer here at Webroot. I have been on this site for awhile, but have been having fun reading other's posts instead of making my own. I felt it was time to change that. I can't really speak of a hometown having grown up in the military, but after college I was finally able to chose my own location to live for a change and came out to Colorado. And I love it. :D I'm a fan of a variety of books, shows, music, and food. However I definitely lean towards sci-fi/fantasy and mystery/crime for the first two.
Hi I'm new
Hi, I have been using webroot for a few years now, and I'm wondering right now if anyone else gets the fake anti-virus software boxes that say you have a virus. I get one for Windows Security Essentials wanting to scan my computer I don't have that so know it is a fake. . Webroot does not pick them up. I'll do a scan, deep, quick and full and nothing comes up. I know this is an introduction forum...I'm old don't know much about pc's, but I have tried to keep on top of the virus, malware spyware thing by having the webroot. For the most part I don't worry, and only once a virus got through with Webroot...and that was probably my fault. These fake virus software things are a pain in the rear and I would expect Webroot to catch them but they aren't. Any suggestions? Thanks so much, Lola
Been out of action for a bit
Sorry to say that since joining the community my computer has been out of action. Only 3 years old and the darn Hard Drive decided to start to fail. Great fun ever since getting things up and running again. That includes having to learn a new OP, new version of Office, etc. plus what felt like millions of updates from Microsoft. At least the one program that was absolutely no hassle to deal with was Webroot Secure Anywhere Essentials. The whole thing has taken me almost two weeks to get computer fixed, then get everything back on, updated, and all tweaked to run the way I want them to. My apologies for not being able to see the notices, etc. on here, or comment on any of them. Ancient computer user - like since 1989. Brain is now slower than it was, lol. Alibaba
