Win 7 Pro 64 Webroot 220.127.116.11 Having issues with updates on this laptop since January. We are making progress as this time "Scan with Webroot" still works! Checking for updates returns a response stating "You are currently using the newest SecureAnywhere software. With this version, SecureAnywhere automatically updates the software and no longer downloads threat definitions. Threat protection is now performed "in the cloud" and is always up-to-date." Despite the response it appears 18.104.22.168 is not the most current version as two other systems are reportedly running WSA version 22.214.171.124. A case was opened on June 28 with the initial response of uninstall/reinstall. Since this system has not successfully been updated without manual intervention in 2013 I am trying to avoid manual installs and hoping for a more permanent solution. With Webroot's help, the last update was "successfully" reinstalled. However, there are two versions of w
What specific technical guidance does Webroot provide for use of Sandboxie 4 and WSA together? A previous thread mentioned Webroot would need to investigate the structural differences in the new version of Sandboxie and see how that interacted with WSA. The first version of Sandboxie 4 stable was released on June 17th.
What are the reasons that influenced you the most to make you choose Webroot considering how many Cyber Security Products there are to choose from these days? Also do you like using WSA by itself, or do you like using it with other Security Products? If you are using WSA with other Security Products then which products do you prefer to use with WSA to make up your Layered Security Setup? Also, how long have you been using Prevx / WSA?
Go mornig, I haven't been here in a while but I have an issue. My wife's laptop took a dump the other day so we purchused a used one because she only surfs the net and plays bingo. I installed webroot on the computer and everything is fine except that everytime it boots it puts a new icon on the desktop. Is there any way I can stop this from happening? Thanks alot.
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
There's talk at Wilder's Security Forum of a new Ransomeware which is spreading by P2P networks. This Ransomeware is able to flash your bios, but it is not known at this time the changes it is making to the bios. One user which has already fallen victim to this malware says replacing your hard drive will not remove the threat. Zfactor at Wilders is trying to obatain a sample which compromised a friends computer. The victim says he has scanned his computer with norton, eset, avira, avast, dr web, bitdefender, webroot, gdata, fsecure, panda, avg, emsisoft, vipre, mcafee, comodo, ikarus, kaspersky, trend, fortinet among others , and none of them have detected the threat. The victim of this threat says he still has not been able to remove the threat even after replacing the hard drive. He says he is going to replace the memory next which I myself do not think will help from the sound of it. The Ransomewear has him locked out of the bios. I think as we find out

On the security console I see that I have numerous deactivated PC`s. This is only because, during each reinstall of Windows OS - and I`ve had to do a lot lately due to hardware issues etc, I use a different PC name. So they have sort of accumulated over time. Any way of deleting them? Kind Regards George
Sorry for asking here but my trouble ticket has not been answered since two days already. Thought as a paying customer I would get a quicker reply. After using a third party AV client for some time, I decided to switch back to Webroot (because of its lightness). Bought a license code at an American online sales company and now I am scared to use it because I do not know if the remaining days are gone.. what happens to the trial, etc. Some time ago, I already bought a license code (different seller) but had only problems. Even having the original package in hands, Webroot told me it was probably stolen, Thanks god I got several replacement codes from the seller but not a single one was correctly working. I got my money back from the seller... but well of course this is still on my mind. So currently my account is filled with a lot of codes and several consoles. Some codes show up as valid (however support told me some time ago th
I re-installed Webroot after using another program and Webroot almost killed my PC. After the installation it started the auto scan which showed up infected files (all false positive by the way). One of the infected files was [b]explorer.exe[/b]. I changed my Windows Seven theme a long time ago, so I had to replace the explorer.exe with a modified explorer.exe. Webroot Secure Anywhere version 126.96.36.199 didn't care and started the automated cleanup engine without even asking me and *tada* removed c:windowsexplorer.exe because of a wrong MD5 hash. Immediately the taskbar was gone as well as my desktop. Some moments later the whole system crashed with a blue screen. Since I use Windows 7 I cannot remember that I ever saw a blue screen. I had to restart the PC and after the Windows login the whole screen was just black and a lovely "explorer.exe Class not registered" error message appeared. So no start button, no file manager... nothing. The fir
Hi, I get a lot of phishing emails in my spam filter in one of my web based email addresses(yeah I was anything but careful at the beginning of using the internet). And most of those are very obvious and common very often warned about in forums, tech news sites, etc. That clicking on the links would get me in trouble. I was wondering if WSA would protect me from the phishing scams. That is even if I click on the links would WSA protect me? I know Web filter blocks websites with malware. But will it block the phishing sites, scams etc? Best Wishes, Amit
Here is another good review on WSA AntiVirus 2013. Good points [img]http://www.comparedandreviewed.com/images/website/product/tick.jpg[/img] • Great value for money • Uses a very small amount of disk space • Great malware detection • Powerful behavior-based detection' Bad points [img]http://www.comparedandreviewed.com/images/website/product/cross.jpg[/img]• Poor anti-phishing protection • Lack of features like laptop mode. (These 2 points above Webrooters can explain further on these 2 issues) Overall [img]http://www.comparedandreviewed.com/images/website/icons/rating_5_off.jpg[/img]Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus 2013 is a powerful antivirus program. It also has some nice little extras that don't come with other antivirus products. The system is easy to install and has a helpful and clear interface, making it easy to operate. The system takes up less space than its competitors but it doesn’t scan files so quickly and it doesn’t score
Hi, I couldn't help but noticed the general enthusiasm on this forum regarding some recent webroot reviews: [url=http://geekyproductreviews.com/webroot-secureanywhere-complete-antivirus-review/]http://geekyproductreviews.com/webroot-secureanywhere-complete-antivirus-review/[/url] [url=http://www.avwars.com/]http://www.avwars.com/[/url] I am surprised though that nobody inquired about the methodology used for these reviews, number and samples used, etc. When Webroot failed miserably AV Comparatives test everybody claimed that the test was not accurate, in real life is different, etc. Now, when two obscure entities published their review (along with a link "Buy now") the enthusiasm is general. everybody is congratulating everybody and together Webroot; not a word about the methodology used, number of samples, type of sample, etc.
Hi! From time to time, WSA warns me of malicious content when entering a website (for example: www. plattentests.de, when clicking on the reviews of music): "This website contains a known threat and has been blocked" - I have the option to close or allow, but only for 1 or 2 seconds, so I have no chance on making a decision, because the message disappears immediately. When entering one minute later, there´s no warning at all. So what does this mean? Does WSA recognize within seconds, that there´s actually no threat?(I´m sure, this website is clean, I´ve never had warnings with other antivrus programms). Can I ignore messages that disappear within one second and that don´t reappear? Thx for your answers, Robert
WSA Antivirus Ranks #1 over our competition. God to link and enjoy the best of Webroot on the Web today. [url=http://www.avwars.com/]http://www.avwars.com/[/url] ******** It doesn't get any better than Webroot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I get tired of all the "malicious site" warnings this software pops up with for legit sites. Recently I'm not able to access Google because SecureAnywhere is saying Google is a malicious site. [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/4274i9A720D3DE1068B0F.jpg[/img]
I am currently trialing WSA. For years I have been a fan of Prevx so when I read that they had been acquired by Webroot I was skeptical about its future. I need not have worried, Webroot has taken an already excellent program and actually improved it. I intend to purchase this software when my trial expires.
Hi, [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/4172i62314122B9181922.png[/img] The website was blocked by WSA. I knew this was a clean site but wasn't sure as sites are comprimised often. So is this a FP? Or is the site okay? Best Wishes, Amit
