Does anyone know if Webroot Antivirus works with Steam?
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.
Webroot System Analyzer - low RAM & ReadyBoost!
Hi, Webroot System Analyzer shows I have low and outdated RAM(1003MB) which is impacting my pc performance.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
Temporarily shut off of webroot
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
Is This a Webroot Message?
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.
Pics showing up even after erasing with WSA!
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
This program doesn't seem legit
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!
Pros and Cons On Cloud Technology
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]
WSA (Webroot Secure Anywhere) kills defender.exe
I have made this same post over at Shadow Defender's Official forum. Please fix! Today I installed Shadow Defender version 126.96.36.1996 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

3rd Party Firewall
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?
HELP VIRUS TROJAN
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...
How to Look at Blocked Processes?
Hello again. Well, a few days ago Webroot popped up on our laptop saying it wasn't sure about a process. The options were "block" or "allow" and it would automatically block it in a minute or so. I wanted to search this process to see if it was okay but I never got the name because Webroot already blocked it. So, how can I find the process again?

False Threat on networkminer.exe?
I downloaded networkminer.exe from SourceForge and webroot appears to think it's a Threat of some kind. As far as I know it's just a tool for analyzing web traffic. It thinks the threat is Win32.LocalInfect.2, the googling of which only returns 6 results. I also downloaded a game some kids at the hackerspace wrote in [url=http://scratch.mit.edu/]http://scratch.mit.edu/[/url] and it also detected it as a threat, something else Win32....
I have been going over all the features of Webroot, and digesting the information on how everything works. What has come to mine is this: If for whatever reason the cloud database is not available, how than does the offine shield protect my PC on threats??? Is it safe to go on the net due to the fact Webroot can't access the database to protect my PC? Are there sufficient files within Webroot to stop any malicious attacks??? What I find interesting is: do all the shield components rely on the database??? If they do and the cloud database is down, are we unprotected at that point??? Await your response and thanks in advance.:D
EXTREME Toolbar Malware Infection
Well. I just discovered yesterday that our computer had tons of adware and malware. First, I came on and I saw 2 things: 1, a fake PC scanner program, and 2 something called 'Yontoo.' I did a quick search on Yontoo and found it was malicious. I asked my Dad if he installed anything, and he said Adobe popped up, saying he had to install the latest software. He believed it since it was Adobe, and his only options were 'OK.' I did a scan with Webroot and found no threats, but when I tried deleting Yontoo Webroot continuously popped up about security. Then I decided to turn off the computer and boot it into Safe Mode. I restored the computer to 05/10/13. As I left Safe Mode I discovered another adware program on our desktop about "Best FaceBook Messenger." I deleted that with no problems afterwards. I guess I never really noticed it, but when we opened Firefox it lead us to start.conduit.com, another malicious toolbar. I deleted it on Firefox and a 'Java Script' that I found wh

Safari Web Extension Problems
I need some help. I have the most up-to-date version of Webroot on my Mac (Safari as my browser) and this morning I noticed something odd with the Webroot Web Threat Shield. The shield reports that it is on, yet I don't see the "W' icon on my browser and no check marks or other icons appear on the side of links when I do a Google search. This makes me believe that Webroot is not analyzing links anymore! Also, I noticed (after a restart to my computer) that a prompt appears telling me that the "Safari Web Extension" needs to be installed. I click "Install" and nothing happens. Also there is still no "W" icon on my browser or icons after I do this. As a side note, usually I am able to right click on a link and be able to run the URL through the Webroot analyzer to check if the site is safe. I tried that on a few Google links this morning and that option no longer exists. Does anyone know what is going on and how I might be able to fix this sit
