Hello, I was curious if there is any already known issues with the "net view" command within windows and Webroot S.A. software. When I run the "net view" command I receive the following message... System error 6118 The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available I have used this command before with no problems before installing and using webroot software so I thought it may be related. I have tried disabling the webroot firewall, loging out and back in, and retesting command but still get same error message. Thanks for any info on the issue.
This Friday is a big day for all Microsoft fans out there. [list] [*]The much anticipated Windows 8 OS is launching to the world. [*]Microsoft has been creating excitement around their Windows 8 phone and Surface tablet.

Since we have a lot of Webroot Community members that are also Microsoft users, I wanted to get a little discussion going.

Using the latest webroot V22.214.171.124 on my windows 7 pc. With the latest version scans are now taking about 19 mins. I submitted a support ticket last week. I uploaded logs as requested on thursday and as I had not recieved any response to confirm they had been recieved I contacted weboot. I spoke to a representative this afternoon who said the logs where being analysed and I would recieve a response either today or tomorrow. Just a few momments ago I got a response saying they had not recieved the logs and could i send them again. What is going on? I have replied and sent the logs a second time. Not very good customer service!

by: Paul HorowitzLongtime Mac users who miss the Network Utility toolkit from nearly all prior versions of macOS may wish to bring it back to MacOS Ventura, macOS Monterey, and macOS Big Sur.Alas, a working version of Network Utility is no longer found in the system location on modern MacOS versions that it was once, as Apple deprecated the popular networking tool for whatever reason.If you happen to have an additional Mac running Catalina or earlier however, you can copy Network Utility from macOS Catalina to a Mac running Ventura, Big Sur, or Monterey, and get Network Utility working again, even on M1/M2 powered Macs. ★★ Full Article ★★
Some Mac users have discovered that the hosts file in MacOS does not appear to work, or changes to the /etc/hosts file on the Mac are seemingly ignored. Given that the hosts file is used to map IP addresses to host names, and is frequently modified by advanced users, this is an understandably annoying problem.This is fairly obvious issue when it happens, because after editing the hosts file on a Mac from the command line or even with TextEdit, and flushing DNS cache, there does not appear to be any change to hosts.Changes to the hosts file being ignored, or edits to the hosts file not working, are actually a fairly common occurrence, particularly with modern versions of MacOS system software. Fortunately it’s also usually a really easy fix. ★★ Full Article ★★
I feel terrible asking such an elementry question but here goes... Suppose I allow a Jave update to install, however, it is fake. Since I allowed the update, will Webroot still catch this and intercept the install? I know in the previous years, if a user allowed an install, the security program would ignore the potential risk because the user allowed it. :manfrustrated: I've always wondered to what extent security breaches can be eliminated if users allow the install. -- Rob
