I just read this article: [url=http://www.webroot.com/En_US/consumer/articles/three-back-to-school-scams-to-avoid]http://www.webroot.com/En_US/consumer/articles/three-back-to-school-scams-to-avoid[/url] My fiancé's kid-brother is staying with us this week. He's moving into the dorm at Denver Metro on Monday. I've been feeling like I'm an old person because when I first moved into the dorms, all we had was dial up internet! And just as the technology has gotten slicker, so have the scam artists. I'll be sure to pass this link along to him. Thanks!! Cole Mersich
Hello! I don't know a lot but I can't get rid of these annoying flashing messages. I ran WebRoot (free version) this morning. Threats were identified and disposed of (PUA Superweb and Crossrider) . Tonight I have flashing messages on the bottom of the page again. What else should I try? I would appreciate any advice. Sue
When trying to download the free E-Sword bible program, My Pc stops and does not begin to download the program. Control is lost to close the program, or open or close internet explorer, or to open webroot, or windows defender. No application can be opened, not even to shut down windows properly. The only way to shut down is to punch the "on" button and hold it in for a few seconds, then upon restarting after it goes through the un-proper shut down sequence it seems to work fine and control is gained back. I don't know if any of the e-sword downloads are safe or not, since the same thing happened to me twice by two different download sites. I scanned my PC with Webroot and Windows defender each time and found no virus or problems.
I wasn't sure where to put this, but I would just like to say how pleased I am since changing over to WEBROOT. I love getting these updates that remind me, and update me on all the latest things going on. I have learned so much since joining the Community, and advise anyone who will listen to switch to WEBROOT. Keep up the good work.
Hi there I have some instances of malware on my PC which Webroot doesn't appear to be picking up and therefore cant remove.'The offending items are: Superfish (2 items), Winmanager-2 (2 items)and employees-pc-monitor (37 items). The settings appear to be sut up OK. These are detected when I run WinZip Malware Protector for example. Any suggestions for removing them? Malware examples are superfish (2items), winmanager-2 (2items), employees-pc-monitor (37items) Thanks Spoonz
You can just call me Mark. My previous internet security software came out with a free upgrade to their 2015 version. The interface was horrible and just turned me right off and it was blocking my access to my favourite on-line shopping site... amazon.com. I had enough and uninstalled it and installed Webroot Security Anywhere. WSA looks nice and seems to perform better. Starting last week I noted that fake security warnings and java/flash software downloads were occurring as popups and redirected tabs in all my web browsers... I already messaged WSA Official Support about it. Anyway, Since I am inexperienced with WSA, there could be a feature that I am overlooking? Also, I figure I might possibly get some help here in the WSA community when needed. Dell XPS8300 Desktop OS = Windows 7 (64Bit) Webroot Security Anywhere Firefox 33.1.1 Chrome 39.0.2117.71m Internet Explorer 11 (rarely use it) In addition to WSA, I have tried the below programs: Ad Aware Malwarebyes Hitman Pro (64Bit) RKil

I am not a computer nerd or no where near it. I installed WebRoot on my lap top and since that time I have not been able to use Internet Explorer. My computer freezes up and even ctrl+alt+del won't work. I am fine with FireFox. I have checked my settings and cannot find the answer. Any ideas?? Linda
Hi i have 2 lap tops this one is fine, my other one running windows 7 , the browser has been hijacked. when i try to log into g mail it goes into a loop, never letting me into the e mails i have.
