Can anyone tell me how to delete a user from the Manage User dropdown. I created a fictitious user because I am having a problem with Backup and Sync. I am the only one who uses the computer and being the Administrator, it will not allow me access to perform backups. When I created the fictitious user it allowed it access to backups. I have been trying all day to resolve the problem, even contacting Webroot support and uninstalling and reinstalling Essentials. Not only do I not have access to Backups and a fictitious user, my file manager shows my computer three times and it will not let me delete any of them.
I've recently installed Anywhere Complete 2012 after having to reformat my pc due to a virus that bypassed my previous antivirus software (McAfee). Total reformat (actually, reformatted twiced because it still seemed kind of buggy after the first reformatting), then installed this software. Now, my pc freezes periodically. Its random, not specific to any particular website, but always occurring while I'm browsing the internet. Since I'm new this to this antivirus software, I'm wondering if the freezing is occurring because of scanning or something else concerning Webroot. Has anyone else seen this occur or experienced this problem? I'm hoping its simply a setting I can adjust that will fix the issue. Thanks for any feedback.
I read in the commercial info that endpoint security can be installed on top already installed safeguards. The FAQ in this thread talks about malware protection only though. Anyway since I am evaluating endpoint security, I left F-secure/2012 installed, which is also nice in case I am off-line, I think. Having both installed, I had trouble with Firefox. I could not logon to one of my bank accounts, using FF, win 7/32. What happened was that the click on the logon button was registered (dimmed) but no logon. Using Chrome I could logon. Apart from that I also got a false positive detection error from F-secure regarding WSA So I decided to continue the trials without an already installed package (but kept windows firewall of course) === edit, removed the screendumps from my cloud

Running a limited user account will effectively mitigate against the majority of Windows vulnerabilities. [url=http://www.webroot.com/En_US/business/land/analyzer.html?sc=701F0000000dIns]System Analyzer[/url] will notify you in the event you are running an administrative account, rather than a limited (or "standard") user account. [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/250i0EAE2948EC3F64B2.png[/img] Why is it a good idea to run a limited user account? Our own Dancho Danchev wrote [url=http://www.zdnet.com/blog/security/report-64-of-all-microsoft-vulnerabilities-for-2009-mitigated-by-least-privilege-accounts/5964]an article for ZDNet[/url] a while back that explains just how important this can be. The article may be getting a bit old, but the principle behind it hasn't changed. Many exploits require administrative rights to function at all. Certain other malware can be contained to affecting only the limited user acc
I installed software from a well known company and it auto installed the Ask.com toolbar and changed all my browsers homepages without my permission. I am super not happy about that. This is not webroots fault, but I did want to know if your software has any protection for changing homepages without user consent.

Our stand-alone web browser had formerly been available on iOS devices for free already, and it's now available on Android as well. If you already have Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete installed on your Android, this is the same web browser you already have, so you don't need to download it again. Complete users have the extra benefit of being able to use the password manager. So if you have an Android, and you don't already have the SecureWeb browser with an existing Complete subscription, check it out, and let us know what you think!
I clicked on a link to a web survey (on google docs) and when I used the standard browser in android, Webroot popped up and said that the page might contain malware or spam and wanted to know if I wanted to continue. When I tried the same link with either the Dolphin or Firefox browsers, I expected to get the same message from Webroot. Much to my disappointment, Webroot did not pop anything up with either of these browsers, so my question is: Does Webroot support these browsers? It does not appear that it does support these browsers, which makes me sad for 2 reasons: 1) I have been using Webroot on my phone and have thought that my browsing was protected and 2) I really like Webroot, but if it only supports the standard browser, then I am going to have to look elsewhere for my security needs. I am using a Motorola Atrix 4G with stock android 2.3.6.
Hi, I've had webroot SA installed since July. Today I booted up my PC (running Win 7 Ultimate 32bit) and webroot didn't start up at all. I had a look in the start menu and tried to start it from there but a message came up saying it had been moved. I checked the webroot folder in the Program Files folder and that is now completely empty (the last modification was 11 am GMT on the 19th of August i.e. the last time I booted up my PC). Does anyone know what the problem could be? Cheers, J
When I change the day and the time ( so lets say I want to scan every Tuesday at 10 am) I have to confirm that of course, so I do that but then I get the message that my PC is "currently managed by Web Console" and that my settings "may be overwritten on the next database communication"; so I click OK and fill in an encrypted code (bbyy2q, for instance) and then my settings should have been saved! However, that is not so; as soon as I reopen WebSecureAnywhere Complete and take a look at the settings they are back to "Scan every day " and "Scan before 8.00 am when the computer is idle". I want to manage the days and times of the scans myself! So how can I make 'the scheduled scan page' work?
I just booted up my computer and, upon typing my Windows password and loading to my desktop, was greeted by a couple of pop-ups from Webroot requesting authorization for startup programs that I had already authorized a couple of months ago. I got suspicious and checked my Control Panel, and noticed that Webroot now shows itself as having just been installed yesterday. Is this... normal? Should I be concerned?
I lost my phone on Saturday and I have the remote lock service activated. I have sent the scream and the locate commands but it appears mt device is not online. The history tab shows that the device last checked in 2 days ago. My question is if I rechange my phone service to another device then If whoever has my phone turns it on will the device lock or will my info on the phone be available to who has it? What is the best way to handle this?
Is anyone else having this problem or know a solution? I can only access Facebook (I use an HTTPS connection to it) if the Facebook Social Network Protection is turned off to none. Obviously, I don't want to roam Facebook with no protection, so this isn't a good thing. Has anyone had this problem and know what a work around could be? Any chance that it's the HTTPS access to FB that's causing a conflict? Thanks!
After installing WSA Complete, my “remembered” website login settings (user and password) are no longer visible or active in IE7 or Chrome. I understood that the Identify Shield controls these, so I unchecked the shield setting, “Prevent programs from accessing protected credentials." This did not help. I also changed the “Protected Applications” setting for IE7 from “Protect” to “Allow.” Still, my login settings are missing and must be entered manually. I am interested in eventually going to Password Management, but want to restore this password convenience temporarily. Can anyone help? What am I missing?
Ok so I don't know how it happned(I think our computer is infected) but it's ALMOST like webroot uninsalled itself. I mean I can't access to it and when I searched webroot on my computer it showed 2 iconless "shorcuts" one saying uninstall webroot and another saying delet the shorcut, can you guys help?
Hi, I just switched from Webroot Security Essentials to the Secure Anywhere Essentials and I read some things on the forum so far that answered most of my questions. The only other thing I'm concerned about is that when doing gooqle searches, the old webroot essentials would notify me next to the links whether they were known threats or safe, or suspicious sites. Also, some sites I would go to that had ad banners on the side of the pages were also blocked. I've noticed that with the new secure anywhere essentials this is not the case. It doesn't warn me on any of the links I search nor does it seem to block ads in sites I visit that it use to block ads in. Is there a setting to turn that back on, or how does it work now? Thanks.
