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
I got a refund of Webroot because it was causing some BSOD in my system. But after I uninstalled Appguard, I did not get any BSOD anymore, so I think the problem was with appguard + webroot. Now I want to buy Webroot again to use it alone in realtime, but my old key is still working in "My Webroot" console (it says I have 356 days remaining). Should I just add the new key in the console? How do I delete the old key?
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 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! Since I use Webroot Secure Anywhere Antivirus (I installed the programm two days ago), I´ve experienced this problem: When typing in browser line or any other field on a website, the first letter doesn´t appear, so I´ve first to press a button and afterwards I can type, which is very annoying. In a customer review on amazon I´ve found a review, where a customer complains about keyboard problems, and Mike Rush replied that this is a known problem and there´s a solution for it: "This is actually just an instance where you have to set your keyboard processes to "Allow" within the Identity Shield. I apologize for any frustration but these instructions will most likely resolve the keyboard issues. Open Webroot, click Identity & Privacy, click View/Edit Protected Applications, find your keyboard processes and set them to "Allow". Mike R" When I click on "allow" for iexplore.exe and mozilla.exe in the Protected Applications settings the problem disappears. So my questio
Usually when I use Steam there are updates that happen regularly, however, ever since I installed Webroot Antivirus I haven't seen a single one. Does anyone know if this antivirus is compatible with Steam. Any help would be greatly appreciated. By the way, Steam is allowed in my firewall if that means anything.
Hi, Webroot System Analyzer shows I have low and outdated RAM(1003MB) which is impacting my pc performance. I'm using ReadyBoost feature of Win7 with an old Flash Drive that I found going through some old packaging. As far I understood ReadyBoost, it should have compensated the low memory prob as long as the flash drive is connected. So what's the problem? What am I missing? Best Wishes, AmitWebr
When downloading some programs they ask you to temporarily shut off the antivirus program. I had no problem when I used AVG...what I used for the past 3 years. I cannot figure it out for webroot. I blew it with the last program I downloaded; because my husband kept bugging me to download it I just did it WITHOUT DISENGAGING THE VIRUS PROTECTION. Did I ruin the program? Will upgrading the program fix it if I did or is it completely shot? I CANNOT believe I did it, but that is what happens when someone keeps bugging you to do things when you are writhing in pain and hopped up on pain pills. Help please help. Thanks grettat
Well, I was on our computer today and I noticed a small white box at the bottom of the screen saying "Installation Successful." or something and the options below the message were "Install Now" and "Install Later". Part of me wanted to click Install Now to see what it was installing, but in case it was a virus I didn't, so I clicked Install Later. Now I'm wondering if it might've been a message from Webroot. Any ideas...? I did a scan with Webroot and HitManPro and apparently no threats were found.
Hi, I've deleted some pics using Permanently erase files with Webroot SecureAnywhere. I could find them nowhere. Not in Recycle Bin nor in searches. But when I went to my settings here in the Community and wanted to change my avatar I could see all those pics in the From My Albums. If the pics are permanently erased by WSA how they appear in the avatar settings? Best Wishes, Amit
webroot security showed up on my pc today, and i have not downloaded it. I havent downloaded anything. i highly suspect this to be a virus, but I can't find amy mention of it on google, and I also cannot uninstall it. It told me that my pc was infected and asked if I was sure. Then after I said I was sure, it made me fill out a captcha image, then it opened up IE, but Im not sure where to since I had the internet unplugged. for now it does appear to be uninstalled, but Im not sure. Im running my virus protection programs again just to be safe, but I figured I would check here to see if anyone had any input. Thanks!
This is a very interesting read on the above subject. Would like some feed back from our members on this. [url=http://www.securelist.com/en/analysis/204792140/The_antivirus_weather_forecast_cloudy]http://www.securelist.com/en/analysis/204792140/The_antivirus_weather_forecast_cloudy[/url]
I have made this same post over at Shadow Defender's Official forum. Please fix! Today I installed Shadow Defender version 188.8.131.526 on my father's computer. He has Windows Vista 32 bit on his PC. I then tried to access SD's UI by double clicking on the tray icon. I discovered that each time I double clicked on SD's tray icon that the UI would briefly appear, and close on its own just as soon as it appeared. I tried disabling UAC first, and found that this did nothing to resolve the issue. I tried to access it from Windows start menu, and the UI would still close as soon as it appeared. Next I shut down WSA (Webroot Secure Anywhere), and then opened Shadow Defender's UI by double clicking the tray icon. The UI stayed opened as expected, and no longer closed. I opened SD's UI multiple times while WSA was shut down, and had no further issue with SD's UI closing. I then opened Window's task manager to see that DefenderDaem
I have a problem with webroot secureanywhere antivirus/internet security/complete. When my browser (chrome) is protected by Webroot, I can not type my language vietnamese or chinese. I must set my browser to be allowed from Webroot's Identity Shield. Any solution? please help. Thank you all!
Appreciate input from our expert mods on this question: Webroot has a firewall which compliments Windows Firewall. Would a 3rd party firewall be better?? Would ones PC be more secure instead of Windows Firewall?? Or would a third party firewall be incompatible with Webroot?? The are some great firewalls out there, however what are your thoughts on this?
My last computer was destoyed when a window popped up mimicing a MS WINDOW and said a virus was attacking- needless to say my old computer was destroyed due to the damage. I once again received the same POP UP window but this time I shut down my computer. The only real difference in computer protection is this one has WEBROOT but Webroot DID NOT recognize this attack and did absolutely nothing to stop it so I shut down my computer immediately. Please help a damsel in distress. What can be done about averting these attacks in the future? Merci Beaucoup...
