I have been using Webroot Secure Anywhere for several months. However, I kept Window Washer in my computer because it had features that Secure Anywhere does not have - namely Free Space Washing and System Eraser. After a couple of months of using Secure Anywhere's Cleanup Now I used Window Washer just to see what would happen and it erased for 17 minutes. It appears Window Washer erased more than Secure Anywhere's Cleanup Now. Window Washer is no longer available, so if I'm right, can Secure Anywhere be upgraded to wash as thoroughly as Window Washer.
Also, System Eraser was nice to have when disposing of an old computer.
I am new on here. I used "Window Washer" on my XP computer for several years and really liked it. I upgraded to Win 7 and was disappointed to find that "Window Washer" was no longer available as a stand alone product. I am happy with my current antivirus suite and really do not want to change just to get the window washing tools. I understand that they bundled them with their "Secure Anywhere Complete" suite in order to boost sales. I would gladly pay the upgrade price if the window washing tools could be installed separate from the antivirus tools. Webroot gets their money and I get my window washing tools....seems like a "win-win" to me.
Diggin' the iOS Webroot browser!! Is Webroot planning on adding the capability for importing bookmarks from other browsers?? I have a ton of bookmarks saved on Chrome, yet I cannot transfer these to the Webroot browser.
This is perhaps the most important feature any browser should have. User-friendly accounts for a large percentage in the acceptance of any new product.
Looking forward to a reply!!
In this day and age when we can manage almost every aspect of security via a single portal, I don't understand why we still can't clean up already quaratined files and completely remove them from the system.
Webroot alerts me that there is a possibly dangerous file and automatically quarantines the file. I log into the portal and check to see what has been quarantined and from here I should have the ability to restore it from quarantine or remove it from quarantine permanently.
Instead I have to take the user out of its Policy, set it to unmanaged, remote to the users desktop, refresh the policy and then manually delete the quaratined file. This is a huge waste of time (especially when dealing with a large client base), when something so simple can be integrated into the web portal.
Under system tools, then Applications, there is an entire section for Internet Explorer. You can choose to scrub Address Bar, Cookies, Temporary Internet Files etc.. But the last time I installed Fire Fox, it just gets loaded under the Applications tab with no customizable options. So Webroot doesn't clean any of the things in Fire Fox that it does for IE. (Unless I am missing something.) Also, I had Window Washer before the SecureAnywhere. I liked being able to make a boot disk. It came in handy once.
Please introduce or assign resellers/dealers/distributors in Bangladesh so that WSA products can be available in stores here.
I would like to submitt a feature request which would allow someone with a System Admin account to be able to clean or use the System Optimizer for all the other user accounts on one system such as a laptop or desktop without having all the individual users log in to their accounts and do the cleaning themselves.
Public hotspot connections are typically unsecured. Is Webroot going to extend hotspot privacy to its subscribers? I see that Norton offers an option for this. What are some thoughts?
After running the Analyzer tool "Updates are available for your system and have not been installed" comes up when it finishes.
I have 3 optional updates in Windows update. Is it talking about those?
My suggestion is, if Webroot knows what the updates are, can it please also list what those updates are in the log or something? I feel like I have to play the "check all drivers and apps" game to make sure everything is updated. The analyzer obviously knows what updates are needed if it's telling me there are updates. Knowing what those are would save a lot of time trying to figure out what its alerting me about.
Sorry if this is a dead horse and has been suggested already.
Wanted to know If there is a "Search" Function in Webroot Cloud-
If there is not, it certainly needs to be Included-
as it would make things tremendously easy to Search for Files
that you need.
Thanks Very Much & Best Wishes-
Request adding more thourough Files Cleaning capability to Webroot Secure Anywhere for PC. Add more cleaning of Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Opera, etc and third party software such as wordperfect, Corel Paintshop Pro & Corel Video Pro, etc. In othere words, more functions & cleaning capabilities your previous Window Washer software did, including cleaning free space on your PC.
