I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer. Too, neither do I know anything about Webroot nor do I know if I am posting this in the correct forum. Hopefully, someone will run across this post and be able to help/answer. Several months ago I was having issues with my internet connection and took my Win7 PC to Best Buy's Geek Squad. (Turns out all it was was a bad ethernet card.) While at Best Buy one of the Geeks installed a folder on my desktop called "Webroot System Analyzer." (My assumption is that they were suppose to delete the folder before I left the store -- but they didn't.) Anyway.... I have run "systemanalyzer.exe" (version 126.96.36.199) a number of times over the course of the past number of months. The "analyzer" continues to show that I have a eight virus files on my PC. These results posted below. Viruses:8 [list] [*]Mal/20113544-A [*]Mal/FakeAvCn-C [*]Mal/Jafuzzo-A [*]Mal/JavaKC-P [*]Mal/JavaObBa-A [*]Mal/JavaObSnd-A [*]Troj/JavaB

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 noticed in the forums that there are three version of Webroot Secure Anywhere: [list] [*]Essentals [*]Antivirus [*]Complete[/list]But when I go into the program, I can't tell which version I am running. Is there any particular place in the program where I can find this information out?
Hello: I have been using Webroot for a couple of years with WIN-7, but recently I switched to WIN-8. I began getting messages stating that Webroot Spy Sweeper was incompatible with WIN-8 and should be removed, but the usual uninstall program does not work. How can I uninstall it?

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:
Hello, in my older computer, whenever i ran the windows washer it would clean the browsing history, cookies etc from my google chrome browser. In my new computer the washer works fine, except it doesnt clean google chrome. Is there a way of changing the settings or adding chrome to the washers' search? Thanks again for your time, Tom
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
client called today said he read online somewhere that the older spy sweeper can be updated to use his lic somehow in wsa? i toldhim i was not sure but i would find out for him he will come in for me to do this if in fact it is true. and if it is which version would it go to or is this totally false? i do not know where he read that as i did not ask i thought it easier to simply ask so i know what to tell him. thank you!
Yesterday I renewed my Webroot Spy Sweeper, etc., under the special 15-month offer. It immediately scanned and found 3 infections to be removed! One of these was a Messenger infection that was sending out e-mails using one of my own addresses! It was brand new the yesterday was the first day that the virus was functioning. I believe that the UPDATE is what caught the new virus. I am a very happy boy today. Windows Defender and Norton 360 are also on my computer but the Webroot Spy Sweeper is what I really depend upon.
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?
hi guys, Has anyone ever come across webroot client issues where by webroot clients loaded onto individual pc's on the network drop off and have a connection error pop-up message? Where i work (some back ground info) we have scheduled WOL scripts that run through Visual Cron that control sweeps when the PC's wake up and Webroot is scheduled to run its sweeps. We have in the past always had this issue. i have tested and confirmed that all PC's actually run when running WOL tests however we still face connection error issues. Is there a default time as to why/when and how do the Webroot clients loaded onto PC's on the network suddenly drop off.
I know that's older product, but alsp and freeware,so I would use it on own risk. I see that Webroot still allow downloading of that product, but I didn't see where I can get code. I just want to try it because in my home, for personal usage and want to see which firewall solution is best for me. So if you can help. Regards
