person over phone claims my machine is a mineon for hackers and wants access to it
About once every few weeks a person (sounds like he is from India) calls my house - claims he works for Microsoft and claims that my machine is a mineon for hackers. He wants me to grant him access to the machine for a few hours. Of course not knowing who this person is, I decline him this. Webroot protection on my machine does not find any threats. The only sign of anything that is out of the ordinary is that a pop up window posts when I shut down stating that an invalid memory location is being accessed. Has anyone received such phone calls?
Mobile phone battery use
Lately, my mobile phone protected by Webroot has been using an inordinately large amount of energy which is used by the SecureAnywhere app (according to the battery use counter in Settings). Is this normal? How can I reduce this current drain? What is the problem? I think the app is set to scan weekly, but it seems as though there is some function happening all the time.
Found this after playing PCH and MS Jigsaw. Not sure where it came from. Obviously another scam. It needs to be blocked, of course, so that people don't fall for this. I forget what the code is for ignoring a link so would someone be so kind as to either it or tell me and I'll correct it. http://backfield.live/ln/SP3nSKdt0M9JtokbnbEhWknN5xMjn7sRYVUzgZPhfnNqXUPTb3_zGGtJRi8PtyWs.mSm8YLMjJw9Xri5sNvqSlHExEqDFuVoO3r0iiiRGl8FjGkp0FXUOnii5vxqKDcSXcJT7GhVHiwtCSTg1ycPoA75OqPlPLKTcluTPyCmREwDR2Q2VUCs9EJneqwPgtIrlesAB8_wk6dVLGLb_TYA3C5oNnXqCz2lX4paCz.EhPuEcpEk8bK6.vjOac2ZT3wlwNqPbWJngBv1NlMO76dy8qLCExnT3BAgm9jSurYa8USgtJCad5he4X0YpnfNbyyI06G64xaDH34G1MNbgZL.e4RdOosgbMAR5pdJycUjhJRWl59OuQbEza98gdcpYZguaRcQiHg3HJmPNABbu4zjPURUfcdQUUMnP_V_AcyDkvs16RkvFikjtaYkEm73bKgLX5plpTpJz6yPyMyi0_0fh4OuR22Ftzy.l6tTCOa.XUwqq.qq
I have Windows 10 and when I go to IE or Google Chrome I get my Webroot report why how to fix?
this is my first time using the Webroot Community. I have used Webroot as my Antivirus for about 6 months now and now I wish I wouldn't have saved the report. I live in S.W. Missouri and am in construction. Floors and Tile, Bath remodels etc.
I must run webroot scan 2-4 times daily to get a complete scan. Anyone else seeing this?
I have been a Geek Squad user for several years. Recently the Webroot scan often aborts. I must run the scan 2-3 times each day to get a complete scan. Failure to run until I receive a complete scan results in my computer running slower. Geek Squad has cleaned the computer, but within 3 days I have the same issue. The only change has been adding Windows 10. Anyone else having this challenge?

not really new to the community, had to create a new account
hello as the subject states, im not really new to the community. i have been a WSA user for years and had a community account open before, but lost my password. everytime i tried to reset my password i would get the error You do not have sufficient privileges for this resource or its parent to perform this action. its a bummer that i have not been able to log into my other account, because i was a part of the pc beta group.
hi, i am a first day beta-tester of WSA but at that time there was no "beta" section despite my repetitive demands but i see finally we got one, so i applied for acess to it. i had another account here "umbrapolaris" (if i recall well but i lost the credentials). i have made a well appreciated guide of WSA here. Maybe some of you recognized me from Malwaretips.com, i'm moderator there. thank you cheers.
How do I use a small font size in questions and answers?
Is there any way to use a small font size in questions or answers? That is, for the purpose of minor and possibly irrelevant information?I’ve checked the Markdown syntax but couldn’t find anything. However, I feel I’ve seen it on the site somewhere…I have seen a website Anchor Fonts in which I see very different types of font styles but I can’t find the smallest font in this very type of font but…
My email is giving out private information from my other email without my knowledge. Why is this?
This is my first time posting here and I'm brand new to Webroot. I bought Webroot Secure Anywhere for my MacBook Pro because I was told that I have a keylogger in one of my emails. I would never have known this except that I also have an address at gmail as well as with inbox.com where the problem is occurring. I have an email I use to post anonymously in public forums under a screen name (my address at gmail) My inbox.com email (which I use for my business contacts) was one of the back-up emails I used for password help and I did not expect it to start broadcasting my private information to my business contacts. One day I sent a message to myself from my inbox email (reserved for businesss contacts) to another address at gmail (which I use for Facebook) and got a rude surprise. On the message screen, on the upper right corner (where it tells the recipient about their sender) it had my screen name from my
It's a comment, not a question. Bought Wroot 2 days ago. Got virus today wipped out Outlook
Bought Webroot 2 days ago. Today Outook was corrupted. Dell support says it was caused by a virus. It took Dell support 4.5 hours to repair. Question is: If Webroot has realtime virus protection why did this happen?
