Hi there. My name is Tom, and I work in IT for the past twenty seven years, mostly networking and PC issues. I work for a national company as a Senior PC/LAN Analyst, a position I love and look forward to working at every day. I work mostly from home with some limited travel. I guess you can say I've finally seen the light as far as security solutions go after doing my own research. I've been using signature based solutions since the days of Norton, when Peter Norton actually made the product. I'm happy to be here. It's true, you can tell a lot about a product by looking at the forums they host, and well, the others are chock full of issues, this place is kind of quiet and seems more like a social gathering of the geeks. And that's awesome! I have to say this is the most friendliest bunch of people I've seen, and response times to ANY issue is jumped on almost immedietly! Also awesome. Opening a support ticket is responded to in hours, not days or weeks as I
I have worked in this industry for years, not wanting to reveal too much. I am moved to action when a product comes along that I can support without resevation, to users, the source of my being here. I have managed large and small, I like small and the hands on - I dislike being lost in the crowd in large. I like to think I make good decisions and give good advice - but that is for my peers to decide - I can only talk, or write. Computers/Networking were my hobby and now they are my job - I am a current Hobby Hunter. I have always been successful in Jobs I have had - have been hired with a handshake, no interviews, and had a customer following as an outside tech that followed me after I took my first inside corporate job. I weaned them off as I needed to have a life. When a user asks where to take their pc to get it fixed, I have no reply. If I cant fix it throw it away. Since I fix all my own, what would you say? I nev
During a routine update to a program that we use everyday Webroot determined something was wrong & stopped the update. This either caused the program to uninstall from our computer or Webroot uninstalled it. We had to contact and pay for After Hours Support for the program to get it reinstalled. How can we make sure that Webroot knows that this is a trusted program?
Hi folks - earlier this week we had an orentation day for Webroot's new hires in the EMEA area. We had a group from Linz, a group from Derby and then a few of us here in Dublin joined in. It was a really interesting insight into the company and we're all really enthusastic about working here :) Here's a picture from the day (with the silly grin second from the right belonging to me...)

I have set up webroot and I am not able to exclude a whole programme file from being monitored when the webroot icon is sitting down by the clock on the PC. We are using MYOB and the webroot software interfers with a lot of the MYOB processes and also our printer scan folder. Mostly we leave the webroot programme shutdown and only use it for on demand scanning. I have set up a path into the override section and I think I can exclude the whole folder that way. I also ticked the setting to add it to the default policy I created but the policy doesn’t show the override. Also how can I tell that the override I created with the folder selected to exclude from monitoring has actually excluded the folder from being monitored.
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?
i've just migrating from win xp to win7. usually i use mse & malwarebyte for my protection. Now that i'm using win7 i start to experience difficulties on choosing the best AV. I want to use a powerfull yet light AV. Actually i've try using webroot when i'm still using win xp. i like the lay out and easy to use. i still using mse right now just for back up in case something wrong. i still learn to use webroot on daily basis. Now i'm using 180 days trial, its a great option to compare and also experience wether i'm going to upgrade or not. Maybe u guys can give suggestions on how to maximize the usefulness of this av :D i'm sorry in advance if i ask too many silly question. :8
Here comes the carnival barker for Webroot! Just a quick hats off to the devs for such a well coded, non intrusive, secure program. I am an active gamer (at 60!), and this is the FIRST AV product that "lets" me play. Been testing it for the last few months with exceptional results. Using common sense and this product equals a wonderful computing environment and the security is top notch....did I mention that it stays OUT of the way when gaming;) Great job!
[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,
I have another program to protect from internet threats, [EDITED per Community Guidelines] I use it several times a day and it always picks up 300 to 1500 cookies. I rarely visit more than a half dozen web sites. Where do all these cookies come from?
