I think I have a virus, but the Webroot scan is not detecting anything. At least once a day, my laptop becomes possessed and does things like begins typing in all caps, highlights text, launches new internet pages in a separate window, etc. Does that sound like a virus? (My laptop did tip over once and took a tiny spill, so not sure if that could be the cause.) Please help. Thank you.
My kid changed the login password of my family computer and he didn't remember it now. I searched online and tried Kon-boot, but i got a blue screen death once booting from USB.

So I read the previous string on getting rid of Caution.rootkit which, as I understand it, basically says to uninstall WSA and reinstall it with defaults vice custom settings. Does this mean your custom settings, such as heuristics, don't work? How would I know if I really do have Caution.rootkit or if Webroot is giving me a false positive? And lastly, why do I have to go through the whole uninstall and reinstall drill for this issue anyway?

Firefox update V. 57 disabled Webroot Filtering Extension (& other things that did not meet their new standard)
Received notice from Firefox that they were disabling all Add-ons that don't meet "current Firefox standards", & those items are now missing. They include a very important one: Webroot Filtering Extension, which also means I don't get the green checkmarks on Bing & Google search engines, for safe links. Firefox is my preferred browser. I don't trust IE for privacy issues, & the last 4 times I D/Led & set up Chrome, it came with some malware--haven't tried it in several years. I don't want to stop using Firefox, but neither do I want to lose Webroot's Filtering Extension. Is there ay other solution besides to stopusing Firefox till Webroot jumps through the hoops Firefox is requiring? Leslie
April 25, 2017 10:00 am By [url=https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/author/john-cable/]John Cable[/url] / Director of Program Management, Windows Servicing and DeliveryTwo weeks ago, we began rolling out the Windows 10 Creators Update. Today, I’d like to share some insights into the feedback we’re hearing, and some specific ways we plan to use that feedback to adjust our rollout process. As we [url=https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2017/03/30/managing-windows-10-creators-update-rollout-seamless-experience/]previously announced[/url], the first phase of the rollout targets newer devices. Based on testing work done with our OEM hardware and ISV app partners, we believe these devices will have the best possible update experience and help us decide when it’s time to begin the next phase of the rollout.

I all! Hurry! Can anyone help me please, I'm trying to search my website history for some very important content that was on a particular site to which I've forgotten the address. I had visited the site many times during May/June of 2012 but can't seem to find how to do it. Can the site history go back that far and how do I search? I've tried putting in a few key words but these search the whole website and not my history. Help, I need to find it fast!

The new operating system [url=http://www.theverge.com/2014/9/30/6868695/microsoft-windows-10-announced-official]is being unveiled today[/url] at an event in San Francisco, where Microsoft announced its name and has begun detailing new features, including the return and makeover of the Start Menu, the introduction of multiple desktops, and a new universal search feature. Microsoft isn't hiding that, for mouse and keyboard users, this is a move back toward what Windows users are used to and away from the contentious changes in Windows 8. "It gives the familiarity of Windows 7 with some of the elements of Windows 8," Windows chief Terry Myerson says. While most PC owners won't start using Windows 10 for a while, developers and enthusiasts can get started much sooner. Microsoft wi

Hi, Pleeeese could you help me out with this printer of mine! It just wont print. I've been using it for a few months with no probs but since I changed the cartridges, apart from five or six pages from the web, it dosen't print anything, dead as a doornail. All the print jobs are queing but one is trying to delete and is stuck, it won't cancel. I've also noticed that next to it's name on the control panel, it has (Copy 1), is this OK? I've tried diagnostics which had corrected it for that one time but has made no overall difference. Can you help? It's an HP Deskjet 1050 J410 series.
Has the price of a 3D printer got you down? With printers ranging between $350 to $2,000 in price, many people scoff at the notion of buying something so seemingly esoteric. After all, what's the use in printing little toys, right? Well, think again. [url=http://whatsnext.blogs.cnn.com/2013/07/31/study-at-home-3-d-printing-could-save-consumers-thousands/?hpt=te_t1]A new study from Michigan Technological University[/url] shows that the average consumer can save between $294 to $1,926 by the time they print 20 typical household objects like showerheads, iPhone cases, and kitchen utensils. Taking the iPhone case as an example, you'd normally find that going for about $20 at an Apple store. The cost of printing your own? About 27 cents. That can really add up over time. After a mere 20 uses, you may even end up recouping the cost of the printer itself. And the next step? Profit. [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.
By [url=http://www.technologyreview.com/contributor/tom-simonite/]Tom Simonite[/url] on September 16, 2015 Facebook’s ad targeting algorithms are about to get a new firehose of valuable and controversial personal data. Starting next month, the millions of Facebook “Like” and “Share” buttons that publishers have added to their pages and mobile apps will start funneling data on people’s Web browsing habits into the company’s ad targeting systems. After the change, the types of sites you visit could be used to tune ads shown to you inside Facebook’s social networking service, its photo-sharing service Instagram, and mobile apps that use Facebook’s ad network.

[i]Any users comments on this one?[/i] [b]Summary: Solid-state drives are great for performance, but data security must come first.[/b] [b]By [url=http://www.zdnet.com/meet-the-team/us/zack-whittaker/]Zack Whittaker[/url] for [url=http://www.zdnet.com/blog/security/]Zero Day[/url] | May 9, 2015[/b] Storage. It's not a sexy topic. But everyone uses it in some way or another. You have iPhones, you have computers. Everyone knows how important a person's data is. But it doesn't just "disappear." Or does it? New research suggests that newer solid-state hard drives, which are faster and offer better performance, are vulnerable to an inherent flaw -- they lose data loss when they're left dormant in storage for periods of time where the temperature isn't properly regulated. The worrying factor is that the period of time can be weeks, months, but even in some circumstances -- just a few days. Solid-state drives are better than regular mechanical hard drives, whi

My Grandson was playing games on my Android tablet and I went to plug tablet into charger and noticed red exclamation mark on Webroot. Webroot ended up putting 2 kids games in Quarantine. They were "Shotgun Shot Reload" and "Tiny Troopers." Which is a Trojan. Webroot labeled Android.Ads.Airpush a PUA and gave me 2 options. Restore this item or Delete Permanently. Of course I took the latter one. EDITED: This Trojan is able to send MMS and emails Make phone calls Track your Location Read your browser history/ bookmarks Steal sensitive data Particpate in a botnet Conduct click fraud. Love that Webroot is doing its job! ;)
Phew! I'm back online! :@ Had to put my laptop into the shop for a good clean etc as it was severely overheating. and it came back today after a full week and a half. According to they've "cleaned and reseated the heatsink and fan" but have also reinstalled the operating system which (as you all know) has meant that I've now got none of the many programmes I had installed on it! :@ I've managed to install Chrome again but not Windows 7 and have lost all pictures, music, videos, documents etc. I was glad to find that I've got all my favourites and saved passwords in Chrome but wondered if anyone can tell me if theres anyway I'll be able to get Windows stuff back; could they somehow be saved somewhere and will 'synch' once I install it? Hopefully Linda!
