Window Washer Still available?
Hi there. Just a quick question... I had your program, Window Washer, on my computer and really liked it. The computer crashed :womanfrustrated: and had to be taken in and repaired. When I went to put Window Washer back on, I found the disk had a crack in it. It won't run. I came here to your site and couldn't find Window Washer. Is it no longer available? Thanks. Sue :cathappy:

Windows Washer's Cookie Keeper never finishes building the list of cookies.
By process of elimination I determined that Windows Washer is deleting all of my cookies. Obviously this is a problem. I tried to run Cookie Keeper to fix the problem. However Cookie Keeper never finishes building the list of cookies! Help!
I've had spysweeper that expired a couple years ago but I'm afraid to get rid of the program because I never emptied the quarantine and now the program doesn't even open anymore. Anyway, I'm afraid to uninstall webroot because the quarantine has a few viruses and I don't want them released. Is it safe to uninstall webroot without clearing the quarantine first?

What, if any, Webroot package is right for me?
Here's what I need from my security suite: [list=1] [*]It must be able to detect malware in downloaded/downloading files, in incoming email attachments and in malicious URL links. I use IMAP and IMAP-SSL mail systems. [*]It must, within acceptable tolerances, be able to block/quarantine the detected threat(s) before they take up residence on my machine. [*]Since no malware defense system is 100% effective, it must be able to remove any infections that slip through. [*]It must be able to defend itself from malware that attempts to disable or remove it. [*]It must prevent further damage by refusing to allow malware (that was not detected, blocked or removed) to "phone home".[/list]Here's what I don't need: [list=1] [*]I don't need a spam blocker. My ISP and my email client do a decent job of that already. [*]I don't need a password vault - I use LastPass for that. [*]I don't need a "web safety indicator" - I use WOT for that. [*]I don't want mobile device protection
