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?

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 220.127.116.11) 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
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?

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:
Hi, I am wanting to sell my pc which has windows 7 as the operting system. In the past I used a product called window washer to clean the hard drive prior to sale. Is there a product available to purchase which will perform this task. I have been a victim of internet fraud in the past and I would like to be reassured that all my financial transactons and banking/credit card details will be wiped clean before I sell. thank you

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?

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
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!
