Webroot SecureAnywhere, which version?
I noticed in the forums that there are three version of Webroot Secure Anywhere: [list] [*]Essentals [*]Antivirus [*]Complete[/list]But when I go into the program, I can't tell which version I am running. Is there any particular place in the program where I can find this information out?
Can not run SecureAnywhere from Start Menu
I uninstalled SecureAnywhere AntiVirus, rebooted, re-installed SecureAnywhere AntiVirus (wsainstall.exe) , and re-booted again. During the install there was an option to put it SecureAnywhere in my Start Menu. The only thing in my Start Menu related to SecureAnywhere is an option to un-install it. In [b]C:Program FilesWebroot[/b] the only file there is [b]WRSA.exe[/b] (641 KB). Clicking on it does NOT open the application. How do I get it to open so I can check the various settings? I know when I had the program on my PC earlier today, I could open it. But if I could open it before, why can't I open it now? Keycode did not change. By the way, I uninstalled SecureAnywhere because Carbonite suddenly stoped backing up files right after I originally installed SecureAnywhere. Carbonite did not start to work after I removed SecureAnywhere either, so maybe Carbonite has other problems.
WSA and WOT
I have noticed after updating WSA by downloading Version 220.127.116.11 over Version .95 that my WOT (Web of Trust) rating symbols next to the links when searching with IE 8 were missing. After looking at the "Protected Applications" in WSA the setting has changed from "Allow" to "Deny". I changed the setting back to "Allow" and the rating symbols appear. This was the only setting that changed. Is there a reason for this being the only setting changing after updating?
Webroot Cannot Be Updated At This Time...
As there is a new update, I have been going around to my various machines in order to update them to the latest version. None of them are set to update automatically, which gives me a chance to evaluate a new versions stability prior to subjecting my 10 workstations to it. On two of them, it shows the update as being available but gives me an error when trying to download it. Something like “Webroot Cannot Be Updated At This Time”. I don’t know if it’s a server thing or if it’s on my end and wonder if anyone is experiencing this. Also interesting is that I downloaded the update and tried to install it on top of the current version and it would not install that way, making me believe the update is trying to contact something on the cloud and cannot.
Webroot cannot find my device! 3 times...
I'm new. I instaled the Webroot, performed a full scan. Ok. Then I went on [url=https://mobile.webroot.com/info]https://mobile.webroot.com/info[/url] to see the other features. I tried the "locate my device" feature on "Lost Device Protection" tab 3 times, but it couldn't find it. Although it could find it for the "Scream" feature. Why?
User guide for Webroot Mobile was available on the old mobile forum. Unfortunately you have closed this forum in favour of Community Forums, OK why not. However user guide for mobile version is missing there. Under section user guides there are listed all your products except for mobile version. Therefore could you access the mobile version user guide again?
Android 4.0: Commands appearing in notifications, Scream not working on HTC, Web Interface
Testing SecureAnywhere on a HTC Sensation under Android 4.0. Following issues/questions: 1) Commands sent via web interface listed for everyone to see in notifications area. Any way to hide them? 2) Scream function is not working, might be OS/device specific? 3) While Lost Device Protection is turned on and i.e. Locate my device working fine, phone is still listed as "in need of attention", and how to fix icon reveals nothing.

WSA Complete For The Family?
Just a question and I think I know the answer...my wife and both sons (college age) have internet security programs that are about to expire. I am considering WSA Complete...they basically need "set up and forget protection". They all have MBAM-Pro (real time) and I would think that combination would be enough. The wife does some banking on line, not a lot. Since I have only been using WSA Complete 2 days, and like what I see, just considering the move. Thanks in advance for any input.
Navigating and reinstalling Webroot
Webroot continues to be a double-edged sword for me. I've always had great difficulty navigating and finding things, and have a difficult time distinguishing the different opening pages. There should always be an easy way to (1) assess my own account and (2) gain access to help and support from webroot.com. My most recent example is that I lost Webroot on my other pc due to a computer problem and have to reinstall. I go to webroot.com, then mywebroot, and enter my email address and password. I'm now on the Secureanywhere page on that computer with four boxes - PC Security, Mobile Security, Backups, and Passwords. Nowhere on the site is there a link to help and support, or a place to find "community," or to gain access to all the Webroot tools and options I managed to find a link to reinstalling on another computer and thought I reinstalled webroot but it added the webroot as an additional pc rather than reinstalling. This was on Internet Explorer and now I want to
[b][i]I have tried a couple of times clicking on the "Update software" button on the WSAC and have gotten the same message both times. The message was, "You are using the newest version of Webroot and this version no longer needs to update virus definitions. Threat protection is now performed "in the cloud" and is always up-to-date."[/i][/b] [b][i]So, that being said, why is there an "update software" button? (I know. Dumb question. Right?)[/i][/b]
Just a Question, no real concerns, just curious....
[b][i]I read in annother posting on the community site that someone had found an issue with the shutdown procedure on pcs after installing webroot. I, too, have that "issue", but although it is a bit of an annoyance sometimes, it is not really an issue for me. [/i][/b] [b][i]I was, however, wondering if there has been any "resolution", or "fix" as it were, to this issue. If so, it would be nice to know. If not, again, it is not anything with which I am overly concerned. Merely curious.[/i][/b]
Secure Anywhere and Outpost Firewall Pro - Web Thread Shield - Analyze Search Engine Results
Going to port this over from Wilder's Security Forum perhaps Webroot Can help.. [url=http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=309292]http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=309292[/url] When I try to run a search from yahoo or bing no results are being displayed at all.

Weird thing happened
I use webroot complete today my compute basically froze, I had to hit the power button to shut it down. On restart it would not show desktop but the webroot pop up showed up saying im secure. I went into safe mode trying to figure out what was wrong and after trying many things I decided to uninstall wbroot and see. After I uninstalled restarted computer and it startted right up don't know if it was a bug or a glitch but I have reinstalled complete again and I am hoping it doesn't happen again.I am using windows 7 64 bit webroot secureanywhere complete and malwarebytes free. I ran a webroot scan, malwarebytes full scan, and a hitmanpro on demand scan all came up clean.
Are synched files lost online if deleted?
Hello, I'm a little confused about whether synched files are securely backed up. Since all synched files are altered when a change is made, does that mean if a file is deleted, even if by mistake, it will be deleted on synched computers and online? Or if a computer breaks down and has to be reformatted, are the synched files online removed as well. I assume synched files are protected even if not on the Web archive as this would defeat the value of synching, but I've not been able to find this topic on Webroot documentation. Thanks.
SecureAnywhere finds nothing / Spybot finds stuff
I cannot find anywhere on the product website where I can give feedback to a real person so I am posting a concern here. I like Webroot have used it for several years and recommended it to others. my product is updated and since upgrading to SecureAnywhere it has not found one problem on my PC. scanning with the free Spybot Search and Destroy right afterwards I have found numerous malware and spy items that Spybot identified and removed.

Anyway to disable or prevent WRSyncManager.exe from running?
Hi there I was wondering if there is any way to disable or prevent WRSyncManager.exe from running? I cannot find a way, either overtly or view the 'back door', to prevent this .exe from running Now, before the storm of questions as to why I would want to do so, that it defeats the whole object of the Backup & Sync functionality, etc., please just accept that I have my own, considered reasons for asking/wanting to, and that I do not want to start a polemic surrounding the merits or not of these reasons, but rather get answers to my question so that if necessary I can lodge a formal request for the introduction of this fucntionality to be considered for addition to a future version. I , personally, think that it would be good to have such a configuration option, perhaps in Settings or a slider at the top of the Backup & Sync panel, to allow the user to disable or enable (enabled is suggested as the default) this functionality if, for some reason, they wish it. In my vie
