Secure Anywhere's Cleanup

Status: Duplicate Idea
by Bill on ‎02-10-2013 10:58 AM

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. 

Status: Duplicate Idea
TripleHelix is right that this idea is a duplicate of this one: http://community.webroot.com/t5/Ideas-Exchange/Incorporation-of-All-Window-Washer-Capabilities-into-... Also, just because Window Washer took longer to run, it does not necessarily mean it cleaned more. Window Washer was capable of doing up to 99 passes over any file - each pass causing the wash to take longer. So comparatively, washing the same data would take significantly longer with 99 passes.

Window Washer for Windows 7

Status: Duplicate Idea
by New Voice Okla_56 on ‎06-26-2013 09:51 AM

Hi,

 

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.

iOS Browser Bookmarks

Status: Duplicate Idea
by Frequent Voice on ‎05-07-2013 06:50 PM

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!!

Hi Rob, this idea has been submitted before: http://community.webroot.com/t5/Ideas-Exchange/import-bookmarks/idi-p/1984 This idea is on the to-do list, but thus far other priorities have taken the lead. This is a good idea though. Anyone who likes it should kudo the original idea please. Thanks!

Webroot menus font size

Status: Duplicate Idea
by New Voice dhintz on ‎02-22-2015 06:57 PM

Include an option for scaling Webroot menu font sizes to be larger, easier to read

Status: Duplicate Idea

This is covered in another Idea at https://community.webroot.com/t5/Ideas-Exchange/Resizable-user-interface-search-options-in-lists/idi...

We currently have no plans to change the current User Interface. This may obviously change in the future though.

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.

Custom features for Fire Fox

Status: Duplicate Idea
by jsphbuf on ‎04-27-2013 12:33 AM

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.

Status: Duplicate Idea
This is a subset of a larger discussion we're having about Window Washer / System Cleaner. We are trying to consolidate those requests into this topic: http://community.webroot.com/t5/Ideas-Exchange/Incorporation-of-All-Window-Washer-Capabilities-into-... Please add a comment and a kudo to that idea. You raise a good point. Smiley Happy

Hi,

 

Please introduce or assign resellers/dealers/distributors in Bangladesh so that WSA products can be available in stores here.

 

Best Wishes,

Amit

Status: Duplicate Idea

Similarly to the answer provided in this other idea to translate the website to Bangla, if we were to decide to focus on the Bangladesh market, it would entail a strategy behind doing that, which would include an effort to find resellers in Bangladesh. Both of these things entail translating WSA to Bangla, which is already an idea. If that idea is accepted, it would include both of these other ideas, which we are treating as duplicates.

Search Feature on Web Portal

Status: Duplicate Idea
by Frequent Voice on ‎10-24-2012 07:04 AM

I love the new web portal for backup and synch, but I'd still love to see a search feature.  I don't have my home hard drive memorized.

0 Kudos

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.

 

Thank you

We will review the original request and close this one.

Opera password manager

Can Webroot extend their password manager to Opera? I personally like Opera and use it a lot, and I do not think that I am the only one. Smiley Wink

Hotspot Privacy

Status: Duplicate Idea
by Frequent Voice on ‎05-01-2013 03:30 PM

Hi, Webroot!!

 

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?

Create a version of WSA for Symbian OS

As the title says, please create WSA for Symbian as Symbian is still the third biggest mobile OS if I'm not mistaken.

More information from the Analyzer tool.

Status: Duplicate Idea
by Community Guide Gorg on ‎05-26-2013 10:06 AM

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.

Status: Duplicate Idea

Hi Gorg, that's a good point. However, there is already another idea tracking this request. Could you please add your kudos to it? We are planning on making improvements to the level of information received in System Analyzer results.

It would be very handy to be able to rightclick the systray icon and go directly to Control Active Processes instead of going through the menus everytime.

 

Status: Duplicate Idea
Improved right-click context menu options from the system tray was previously suggested in another idea. Please add your kudos to this idea: http://community.webroot.com/t5/Ideas-Exchange/Improve-options-available-from-system-tray-icon/idi-p... Although that idea doesn't specifically include your suggestion for "control active processes," if such an improvement was to be made, it would likely not be for any one particular right-click option in the system tray, but rather for a lot of those kinds of improvements at once. Thank you Smiley Happy

"Search" Function in Webroot Cloud

Status: Duplicate Idea
by powerkhan on ‎03-15-2013 03:15 PM

Dear Sir/Madam- 

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- 

Aftab Khan

Hi, that functionality is currently being investigated. Could you please add your kudos to the existing idea here: https://community.webroot.com/t5/Ideas-Exchange/Search-for-a-Document-from-Webroot-Web-Portal/idi-p/... ? Thank you!

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.

Thank you for creating the original idea. It is still under consideration at this time. Smiley Happy

It would be great if something like an anti-theft feature or module is introduced in across WSA products. The feature is already in place for wsa mobile. But not in WSA for Laptops/pcs.

Webroot website!

by Community Expert Advisor ams963 on ‎06-30-2013 02:08 AM

Hi,

 

It'd be great if webroot.com could be in Bangladesh like it is in India - webroot.com/in/en and the United States - webroot.com/us/en. It could be like webroot.com/bd/en.

 

Best Wishes,

Amit

Status: Duplicate Idea

While this idea is specifically for our website, while this other idea is for WSA itself, if we were to do either of these things, it would mean we'd also do the other one as well. For instance, if we translated the product to Bangla, we'd want to make sure we can market it, which would mean building the site for it. Likewise, if we did the site, we'd want to have WSA ready for it as well. So we'll consider this a duplicate for that reason.
