Help name the very first Guard Cow for Webroot
[b]Edit[/b]: the contest is now closed and we have a winner: Webster, suggested by [user=4288][/user] Our monthly Guard Dogs of Webroot feature is branching out into the rest of the animal kingdom. This month instead of a dog, we have a Guard Cow - newly born and ready to be named. That's where you come in - help us name the new guard calf and win some swag! Post your name suggestions below and [user=232][/user] and her kids will select the winning name from among your entries. Here's the whole story, in her words: Spring is here and there are lots of animals to be born on the farm. The first to arrive is our very own WatchCOW calf.

Currently in training for “Bull status” his days are busy. He begins with a pit stop to mom and gets a belly full.
Howdy! New Webroot user here!
Hi! I am a brand new Webroot member who just left her Norton antivirus behind. Being probably the LEAST tech savvy person on the planet didn't help me much, but when they couldn't help get the product to work right I was done. I had gotten some advice from people I trust that Webroot was the way to go so I made th switch but I see alot of differences in the way Webroot scans and how much it scans vs. the way Norton would do a full system scan. I guess you could say that while I'm unsavvy in the tech world, I do have alot of questions because I just need to make sense of things in the way they run for my own peace of mind. Since the support crew isn't available over the weekends I thought I'd get my feet wet by posting here to see how others like Webroot and if they had used Norton before if they had also noticed the differences that I do. Anyway, hello again and thanks for perusing my note!
I had a really bad virus and malware attack last week. Webroot ran numerous scans, but I still could not access my hotmail account through my ie. Finally had to call Microsoft and pay $100 to have my laptop disinfected. Would there have been a better way? Microsoft found 1280 PUPs even after Webroot had pronounced my computer free of threats.
Hi, My name is Carol and I am new to the Community
I started using Web Root this year and want to learn about it and how to get the best out of what is offered. My computer skills are fairly good but I still can get stumped by something that should be simple. I am looking for help now. I hope someone out there can help me or at least advise me where to go for help. I use Windows Live Hot Mail and several weeks ago- after composing and sending two messages out- I got an error message, 3204. Can not send or receive... I have struggled with looking for an answer to fix this and it seems so many of the sites that offer support also want money.... It was suggested I disable the firewall- would that work? Any help is appreciated... Looking forward to learning from you all. Thanks, Carol
I'm new and desperate ..Help Please
I have a Samsung laptop I have had Webroot on it since I bought it last year. It started running slow so I cleaned up everything and downloaded off of the factory installed Icon on my desktop, " SW updates" It had like 10 updates and as it was downloading it emptied my folders on my desktop and threw thumbnails of everything all over the screen and now I have one dotted line across the bottom of my screen that just now turned into two dotted lines! Any idea on what is going on, I have ran a webroot scan...comes back graphic ram is low but nothing else. Thanks for any help I am technologically illiterate.
Password Manager ??? Time for this fix to be DONE
Hoping others feel the same way. I have been using Webroot for years and always recommended them. This Password Manager problem has me very much questioning my choices... Not really sure why it has taken so long to fix the problem or at least patch it until a fix could be made. It has cuased alot of problem for me and I dont even have all that many passwords stored there. I read a thread where someone had over 300 passwords stored.. oh my what a nightmare... I am still with there security for a long time as I purchased a long term plan the last time I renewed. My question is should I /we contiune using this after its been fixed. Are they going to compensate us for this problem. Think it would have been nice for them to keep us in the loop via Email what was happening ... End of my rant...
So many (techie) product questions...
Please pardon all of my techie questions but I want to ask them before I spend more cash on yet another product that may or may not really fit my needs. Are there "basic" versions that do NOT want to manage my passwords and/or credit card information? (like so many other products want to point to as some wonderful "feature" aka: wonderfully packaged and sold security risk IMHO when there is no way to actually stop the underlying processes from still gathering and storing your passwords etc...) I am very particular about system resource use, running process, and communication ports being held open. (as another product wanted to hold 24 ports open at times - in port matched loop-back pairs... totally wasted resources, running process, services, threads, and handles.) Will these products potentially cause any unsolicited inbound packets to show up at my router? (I had issues with other products that were not using TCP/IP communicati
my optimize scan area is blank since i renewed my subscription by calling the company
Hello, I'm a newbie...........Kasie92 I have used Webroot for several years and when I saw the price for a renewal I called the company and stated that as I only ever us 1 PC I wanted a reduced price. (a closed mouth is never fed) They ended up giving me a discount. I did ask if the content would be the same. they said yes it would be the same.I have tried to use the optimize scan. It doesn't work. At first I thought is it me???? I found how to change the settings on what I wanted to be optimized but when I go to the scan area it's blank even though the name optimize is there. I know from reading these posts there are some talented people in here to help me. I await your phenomenal input. Kasie-92
How to remove alert "Sign up for My Account"
Now, after I’ve Signed Up and created a new account on Carbonite+Webroot, because this is where the "Get Started" button led to, the alert keeps appearing down to the right corner of the screen, non stop. This is the text of the alertWebroot "Sign up for My Account Manage Subscriptions, access support and more by creating a My Account profile." How do I stop this alert?
New To This Site
I discovered Webroot by sheer accident. I have been a Norton user for many years. About a week ago I upgraded to Norton 360 Premier. With Norton, I am all too familiar with the amount of time it takes to complete routines, such as scans and backups, but I do consider it to be good software. While doing some research for the best internet security programs (I did a search on Cnet) I came across Webroot. The contrast between Norton and Webroot intrigued me, so I purchased Webroot Secure Anywhere Complete. I wanted to compare the differences between the Norton and Webroot software. Much to my surprise, I learned that I could run Norton and Webroot on the same machine without creating conflicts. So, that's precisely what I did ... I installed both programs. Much to my surprise, they seem to be functioning well, with no glitches or slowing down of processes. I am told that Webroot is non-intrusive, which allows it to function, and not compete, with Norton. So far, this seems t
TripleHelix visits Webroot HQ!
As part of reaching Silver VIP, one of the rewards that [user=758][/user] earned was an all expenses paid trip to visit the Webroot office. He arrived yesterday and I picked him up at the airport. We scheduled several fun events, including a welcome party with cake, meetings with several key Webroot staff, and showing him around Boulder. Today the fun continues as TripleHelix got to meet with the executive staff at breakfast, as well as talk to the senior developer team. He even got to push the button to launch the latest beta version of WSA. Here's some photos of the events: Let them eat cake!

Introducing our chat advocates to the community
We're recently launched a new program on [url=http://www.webroot.com,]www.webroot.com,[/url] in partnership with [url=http://www.needle.com.]www.needle.com.[/url] Needle offers a service where fans and advocates for Webroot can offer chat support to people who aren't sure which version of Webroot to buy, or who have questions about features and functionality. The chat advocates are hand-selected for their knowledge, helpfulness and enthusiasm for Webroot products. In return they receive a fee and points that they can redeem in an online store for any completed sales that they help with. It's a perfect part-time way to make money for a college student or stay-at-home parents with irregular hours. The program has been very successful and we're excited to have new Webroot advocates from that program come and join our community. They'll be on here interacting and learning, both so that they can benefit from all the knowledge that the community has to of

Turn Windows Defender On or Off
Hello from Merrifield, Minnesota - Mission Township. I am so excited to start learning how to use and optimize WEBROOT SecureAnywhere after successful installation! For starters, can anyone tell me if it is best to turn Windows Defender off while Webroot SecureAnywhere AND is there any reason why I would want to have both turned on OR direct me to the right community forum to ask this question? The message in my Action Center under Spyware and unwanted software protection says, "Running two or more antispyware programs at at the same time can cause your computer to run slowly." Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise. Indomite
Hi, I am fedupWmachines :@ ; all of them; and then some! But I need them and there is still much about them I love. So, I am here to learn. Probably ask lots of questions. Am non-tech, but was techie(over 25 yrs ago:D) so kinda starting over. Have had some kind of PC for a good 25 yrs, added games, phones, tablets (most recent), laptops, etc....and been with Webroot quite a long time. For now I'll do some more browsing, which is what I was doing before I registered. Decided it was time, since I have looked the site over before and learned quite a bit! THANKS. TTYS:D
