Hi, I just purchased directly from Webroot's online website a deeply discounted holiday special 3-Seat 3-year WSA and downloaded the installation file and saved the Key info in a secure physical location. However, I'm not ready to use it until approximately 10 months from now on 3 machines. After reading the the auto renewal disclosure, I was wondering if my subscription clock might somehow start ticking prematurely if I chose today or tomorrow to Opt-Out from auto renewal per the posted instructions? Or, should I wait until I actually install the this new subscription on the 3 machines in 10 months before performing the auto renewal opt-out procedure? Also, if I do opt-out of auto renewal, may I still manually renew without having to reinstall WSA (as long as I do it before my subscription has expired)? I'm a big fan of Murphy's Law and we are talking about the later part of 2017, which is way out there, and who knows where I'll be
even though i am running secureanywhere, i picked up some malware yesterday. thankfully malwarebytes cleaned it. now i notice that my firewall and identity shield are disabled and i can not get them to turn on. then i signed into my account and see that webroot hasn't been tracking my computer scans since march (my second pc's information is current). how do i get the firewall and identity shield to enable and why is my machine not reporting/being logged by webroot?
Password software was working just fine and I really loved it. I have been getting accustom to win 8 and finally was liking it. I upgraded to win8.1 and got it working ok except the Webroot Password software will not work. I lost my quick launch icon. I have logged into Webroot and got into my password software but I still can not get it to work. Even when I click on one of my sites on the list that are passworded it will not take me there. This is my first post and I hope someone will come to my rescue.
Hi Folks, I just bought a prolongation for Webroot Secure Anywhere. After installing I was asked to enter the issued key code, so I did. BUT after hitting the activate button I got the following Error: [b]ERROR FZLC1111: A replacement key code has been issued and must be used with this product line.[/b] Even after checking and re-checking the issued key code I got teh same error message over and over again. My old version expires within 5 days, so a solution is quite urgent. BTW, I did remove (un-install) the previous version and re-installed the new one with the same result. Any help in this would be appreciated. Thanks in advance Aad Follow Up: I did request my keycode as suggested and recieved the following email: Dear Valued Customer, Thank you for choosing Webroot! Below are your download and installation instructions for Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus. You must use this keycode during installation and all future installations: [b]

There is an Idea on the exchange about a test URL which was going to be implemented, but now it's quiet. Someone also posted about the AMTSO phishing test URL, but the 2014 webfiltering does not block it. Joe mentions there is a test URL but it may be for internal testing only: [url=http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=2304888&postcount=199]http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=2304888&postcount=199[/url]
How do I turn off WSA completely so that I can use it "On Demand"? I've tried all day to solve this myself and must admit defeat. Could someone help me so that I don't have to uninstall WSA please? Every time I disable it, it comes back on. I get the same message from somewhere informing me that the WSA "console" is going to overrule me. It's a fantastic program and I love it as much as I did Prevx but it is slowing down my 'puter - I have to admit that. So I want to totally and permanently turn it off and use it "On Demand". Please, how do I do that? Since I am not technically inclined, I will need Instructions For Idiots or Directions For Dummies. Either one will do. Thank you in advance, Greta
My friend had purchased Webroot for her PC, the package said it was good for three computers. I installed it on my PC and immeaditly Webroot was about to expire. I had Webroot on an older system that had expired. I might have used the same login information for this new Webroot install, maybe that's the issue. Also I can't see where to clean up Temp internet files, looks like Webroot changed it's interface since I last used it. Thanks for help, Windows 7.
I have Webroot set to scan my computer on a 24 hr schedule, each day at bootup, and as a quick scan -- or, essentially, every box is checked on the Scheduler and every box is checked on the Scan Settings. At no time has my "scan" ever exceeded 4 minutes. Not even when I perform a manual, deep-scan, and out of schedule. This morning approximately 20 minutes after bootup, Webroot performed the scheduled, quick scan in 4 seconds. That seemed extraordinary to me. I then performed a manual scan without resetting anything. That quick scan took 1 minute and 42 seconds. My question is: Why would the pre-scheduled, quick scan be only 4 seconds and why would a manual quick scan immediately after that be 1 minute and 42 seconds and why would my average scan-time over the previous 3 months never exceed 4 minutes? Outside of the above, Webroot seems to feel that my computer is safe, has always been safe, a
[b] [/b]Other than the HKLM registry access exception, this is not an academic exercise for me. Although this is asked in the context of a large business deployment of Sandboxie, it is applicable to all users of the software.

I was on a site and clicked download. Webroot suggested I not go there. I clicked "allow" and then realized I was not going to the site I thought I was (I guess a phising scam). When I went back to that same original site and clicked download again, it stayed on their site and I did not see the (phising) link that I saw earlier. (I don't think I actually downloaded the Phising site file and I erased the file I did download from that site, never clicked on file to install) So, my question is, how does Webroot store your "allow"? Or, does it? I looked in "My account" and in the settings of Webroot and I do not see anything. Thanks in advance.
Although I read some articles with the webroot community about transferring webroot to another, replacement computer, I just wanted to confirm if it still hold true. I am in the process of selecting a replacement computer for my old one, and naturally want to continue to use webroot once the new one is bought / set up. What must I do? From what I read, all I have to do is uninstall webroot from the old computer, remember the webroot key code, and then install webroot on the new one. It sounds simple. What confirmation / guidance is appreciated. Thank you again!
from my recent experience with WSA I'd tend to rely fully on it thx to its specs, however I'd like to read from experienced users what their position is, WSA devs wolud be appreciated to. Being a mod in a windows devoted franch forum, I'd like to have some "external" opinion on this to promote thsi soft. Thx in advance.
Running into many issues with this product unsing Windows 7, SLi 460s, i3-550. PC in top shape, no defrag issues, no reg issues, latest drivers/gfx drivers, updates.. 1) Games slow, freezing - Example Bioshock Infinite offline. Once I shutdown protection, game runs fine 2) Browsing.. All browsers.. I use Chrome. Just clicking from one tab to the next is a pause. Pages dont open smooth. Once shutdown, browsing is smooth 3) Errors during startup. Example: pdagents1.exe which is part of Raxco Perfect disk. I put this exe file in allow mode, but error comes back. This product is unusable with these three issues so far as it drastically affects performance. Please advise.
I would like an update on status as to when the green arrows from webroot will start reappearing. i switch from IE for several reasons to Firefox via help from the Geek Squad, one of the minor reasons was the missing green arrows that use to, but no longer appear when make a research via the Yahoo search engine. Now using Firefox, they still are not being displayed. Although the Geek Squad said that webroot is still functioning properly, it brings a reassurance to my family seeing those familar green arrows to show that a website is safe. I know that Google does not show them because in its web address, it starts with https, just as this site does. I have read posts about this same question, but was amazed that the Geek Squad was not aware of this situation; that is, the cause of the green arrows not appearing. I might say that because of certain issues, I had to seek the Geek Squad asistance twice within four days, and the technicians I consulted with, all were not aware of this green
Quick question: I have the basic WSA anti-virus installed. Is this supposed to include a Toolbar, because there is no sign of it when I launch IE (any version) and it isnt even listed in the IE`s Add-ons, Tracking protection etc. Or is the Toolbar only included in other versions, like Internet Security edition etc? George
