Lookout Free Antivirus preinstalled on my LG-C800 Android phone and I have Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete. I don't use Lookout as an active program, but would there be a problem running it? I don't plan to do so but want to know. My phone model uses up battery fast, so I keep bluetooth off except when I use it. The only app that runs all the time is the Webroot.
I set up my account but all I see is a page that says "You are logged out" and a link that says "Return to Home". I did some searching and apparently I'm supposed to verify my email but I never recieved an email and I see no obvious way to resend an activation email. What can I do?
I'm an android dev, so my phone is virtually always configured to allow installation from unknown sources, with USB debugging on. which means that my security console always considers me 'insecure' and 'needs attention'. it would be really nice if one could select each of those alerts and set them to 'ignore'.
I've had the misfortune of running into this guy. He's found a way to bypass security on android phones. Here's what happened with me. I recently went to [URL removed by moderator] on a "free" offer of a ringtone. I entered my phone number to get the ringtone and noticed a subscription notification in the terms & conditions below and stopped. I left the page without completing the transaction. Since I had typed out my number he has a script that recorded it running on that page. since then he has passed my number out to his so called affiliates and have been getting webpage link notifications sent directly to my phone saying I won this, I won that.. and links to apps that I'm assuming he's written with code to do the same as I've described above. and since it's not sms messages I can't block hom. so webroot DO YOUR THING! I'm sure you guys can come up with something to block this guy. if you need more info, feel free to contact me.
I have installed WSA Essentials 2012 and have a question/concern regarding the firewall. I have set the firewall mode to "Warn if any process connects to the internet unless explicitly allowed". This seems to be working each time I open a new appliction (that needs network access) I get a popup asking if I should allow it. So far so good... However, I noticed in the popup that there is a line stating "Allowing in 60 seconds" and this counts down to 0 and then allows access. After the 60 seconds the dialog box is recreated on the screen and the countdown start again (it does this a couple of times), though after the first 60 seconds the app is granted access. This does not seem like a secure feature. If a unwated app tries to send information and I am away from the screen, it will be allowed in 60 seconds? Can anyone confirm that this is the way this works? Is there anyway to change the behavior to not allow the connection by default? Unless I am not
Hai, I checked my windows fireawll settings and it was turned on, does webroot secure anywhere complete use it's own firewall? Or is it using windows firewall? I just don't want to have 2 firewalls running if it's not needed, I'd like to think for the price webroot uses it's own firewall. Thank you :)
Just have a quick question. After using Symantec for many years I decided to try out Webroot after reading the cnet review and seeing the test results. I purchased the WSE for all the PC's and mobie devices in my house. The features seem really great and it has a lot of user configurable options. A few weeks in, I submitted a support ticket asking a question about a virus that got past the webroot onto my pc. I clearly stated in my ticket that I was using WSE 2012 and not one of the older products. What I got back was a template response that basically said if you do not have WSE 2012 installed please download and install that version and then gave instructions on downloading and installing. I am not trying to be funny or anything, but it just strikes me as strange that they would respond to an important support ticket about a curent problem with a template and not even read what I was asking. So that I would know for future reference, can anyone enlighten me on whether or no
I have the secure anywhere complete on my HTC EVO 4G using the android 2.3.5 system. Everytime I try to use secure web to go anywhere on the internet it goes to a blank page and thats it. I uninstalled then re-installed the webroot app on 3/14/12 and it worked for 2 days then quit again. Everything was working fine until I did the last update just over a week ago. Any ideas?
:8 Hi I have a Toshiba Lap Top SatelliteL755, it has a LAP TOP CHECK UP program that insits on the Norton security center that tells me that I have no security on my system when I have full blown webroot protecting my system perfectly. I just wondered had any one else noticed that Norton uses all kinds of scaretactics to scare people into useing thier problem ridden products as well. I used Norton on one Lap top as it was a part ofthe Package Deal( whatever) and all it seemd to do was try to initiate fear. That I only had 363 days left and needed to resubscribe before it istoo late. I happily removed Norton and put the Webroot right in after that .I bought webroot because I know it is good and theree are not any games being played. I just see Norton as a scaming coniveing bunch that greed is thier cause. That seems teroristic to me and very decietfull. Is there a way to shut them down or at least hold them responsible as actually being malware? I also think that it reflects porrly on t
I download the app several times and when I try to put in my email, password and keycode it gives me error message saying email and password not correct. I use the same email and password when I created the account when I purchased the software. I go in to the desktop website it works. But here it don't seem to work.
Hardware failure on my old computer forced me to buy a new one.

Hi all, Having the paid Premier version. I have set scheduled scans on a weekly basis. However every 7th day I am getting a warning that it is for a week when a scan wasn't run and I have to trigger it manually. It means that even if I have set weekly scans, they are not running. Daily update of definitions works fine, just the scans are problem. I am not sure but it might be that the problem with the missing scans began since update to 2.3.1336. Any clue to resolve it? Thx, pegas
I'm thinking about switching to Essentials after using Kaspersky for a few years. I'm tired of the drag that KIS puts on my streaming rate, and bogs down almost any secure site I go to. When I looked at the download version of WSA, it shows 600k ..... and I was wondering if that is just the installer or the whole program? Also does it only work online? I don't leave my DSL enabled all the time, so can a scan be run offline? I'm also wondering about the "fast scans" that are advertised .... is that everything on the drive, or just the critical files? Thanks.
I have 2 problems, they may be related so ill ask them together Webroot will scan my computer, it will say that my volsnap.sys is infected as a possible rootkit. I will delete it as instructed and reset the computer and it will go away. But if i turn off or reset my computer after it "deletes" it it will come back. The second part of this question is now my Webroot will not remove the threat. It will say you can remove the threat, but when the promt to reset the computer should come up it just rescans and finds the same threat (an infected volsnap.sys) any help is appreciated, if im too vague tell me and il try to clairify !
Hi guys, locate works great, lock as well but scream NEVER works, it shows the command sent on the phone but it doesn´t work. Any ideas? Also, is it possible to set a "standard" message on the website so even if I send a lock command from a mobile it appears on my screen? Cheers!
I have installed Webroot on my ASUS Prime but am unable to open the application. Though my tablet is 'wifi' connected I receive a message indicating I am not connected to the Internet. Having successfully installed Webroot on my smartphone I am wondering if I must have a 3G connection to open Webroot on the tablet. Would someone be able to explain what is amiss? Thank you.
I already have webroot essentials for my computers, and the free webroot app for my apple mobile devices. Question: what is the advantage of purchasing the Webroot SecureAnywhere upgrade? I have read and read, and I can not find where the purchased upgrade, offer any advantage over the free App. I can see that the upgrade offers alot more for other mobile devices, but not for the iOS devices. I called Webroot sales, the first salesperson, assured me that I dont need the upgrade and that the free App, is all I need. I called a second time, and the saleslady insisted that I need it.. when I point to her that a previous salesperson, had assured me that my app devices only needed the free app... she was quite annoyed and put me on hold for long long time, never got back and got disconnected.... so do I need the upgrade or the free app is all I need?
I installed Webroot Security & Antivirus on my Anroid (Huawei Sonic) a few months ago. Today I got a notice to say an upgrade was available for download. I asked to install it, agreed to the terms and conditions, but after downloading the file and attempting to install it, I get an error message "insufficient storage available". I tried uninstalling and reinstalling - uninstall worked fine but the same problem occurred when trying to reinstall, so now I have no virus protection. Checking my storage I have 17.96 MB available on internal SD card and 16.92 MB available on internal storage. Any suggestions on how to fix the problem? Thanks
I downloaded the free app from the applestore... as soon as I access it, It asks for login name and password.... but I can not find how or where do I create one.... I went through the help and instructions...still can not find anywhere, how do I register, so that I can creat a login name and password.... I appreciate the free app..... only would love to be a bet more clear... I have not gone any farther than that....bc I have no idea how to log in

Hi: I installed Complete 2012 today. Now I have a program that won't work anymore. The program is Eye-fi. It is a card reader that goes into a USB port and reads a Gig SD card in my camera. It should upload my pictures to my PC but it does not. Does anyone have any ideas as to what I might turn off, or undo in order to get this wifi card to work? is there a way to shut down Complete 2012 to test this out? I do a lot of photo uploading to my PC so I need this card. I actually wore (broke) out the mini USB in my camera because I use it so much.
