I have noticed since I have started using WSA that sometimes I open Google Chrome and my Adblock Plus extension is not enabled. Ive never had this problem before installing WSA. For a while Adblock Plus will stay on but sometimes it isnt showing up in the browser URL address area as being enabled. I was wondering if there is anything I can change maybe in the Web Shield or other shields so their isnt any conflict between the two?Thanks.
Both running alongside under Windows 8, WindowsDefender disables itself automatically after WSA is installed. I know you can never have 2 antiviruses running simultaneously but I thought WSA was light enough to share its reign with WindowsDefender. Can anyone confirm this? :D
I just installed SecureAnywhere (Plus, I think, not sure) on the desktop, and before installing it on two laptops, I could use some help. What happened in installation was first turning off Avast! for 10 minutes, then beginning the SA installation. As the time approached 10 minutes, I figured I don't want the two AVs clash so I uninstalled Avast! It required rebooting and as SA already installed, I thought it would be OK to do that. The computer (64-bit Windows 7) crashed, but I was able to boot again normally. Question: for the other installations, should I leave Avast! in operation and uninstall later, or...? Thanks in advance.
I was locked out of my AOL account yesterday morning. AOL Tech did not know, as of yesterday, what the cause was. Apparently, there were a lot of AOL users who were affected. AOL Tech cured the problem yesterday. However, the same thing occurred today. I called AOL Tech and advised them the problem had recurred. The first thing AOL Tech asked was: "Do you use Webroot internet security." I responded that I did. They said, "that's the cause." They directed me to a part of the Webroot Secure Anywhere site where I clicked on the "Identity & Privacy" tab and then the "View/Edit Protected Applications" link, and there, I had to "allow" the AOL.exe link. Problem solved. So, why is Webroot blocking AOL?
Hi, When I run a "Full Scan" my computer inevitably crashes. I get a blue screen, lots of words, stuff about tables and file dumps. Then I turn off my computer and when I restart I have the option screen about Safe Mode, Normal Mode, etc. Any ideas/solutions to having my computer not crash when running "Full Scan?" It does not happen with any other type of scan. Thanks in Advance! Eric
Hi. I'm not sure if this is the correct forum to ask this since I'm new. Yesterday, I downloaded a game and I can't seem to launch it. I researched about some solutions, and one told me to add this game to exceptions or a whitelist. I don't know how to do that, so what I did was deactivate the firewall and most of the antivirus functions. My Webroot has expired, and it is version 220.127.116.11. My main question is: How can I add this game to exceptions, so it doesn't block it and I can play? Thanks.
Wow quite a different looking interface!! It certainly is different looking than the old. My question is I 'm using the webroot secure anywhere antivirus and noticed the webroot firewall on. Will there be a conflict with my Comodo firewall? Should I turn off the Webroot firewall? I haven't noticed any problems with both firewalls on. My system is Vista 32 sp2 with all the current MS updates. Thanks for any info.
I originally had Webroot on my Win7 PC and upgraded to win8 over the weekend. I have tried to remove webroot from my PC by uninstalling through 'Programs and features' It seem to do this (there is now no webroot entry on the list). But when I re-stated my PC webroot came back. I can't un-install it as there is no entry in 'Programs and features'. I can't re-install it as I can't find the orignal CD. How do I remove this product?
I just bought SecureAnywhere Antivirus and so far I've been happy about it. Seems to be extremely low on resource usage which is great. However, I have few questions. I use Comodo firewall and I'd rather only keep one firewall on so I disabled the webroot firewall and now it whines about it. Is there a way to disable that?

It offers nothing to user and is useless information. Is there a way to disable that counter? I'd rather use CPU cycles for something else. Then the final question, is there a way to disable this from right click menu without touching the registry editor though the webroot interface?

I ran MSE with Webroot since last year, in fact was advised by pop-up that there is no conflict about firewalls, just another layer added. But I find that MSE has nailed a couple serious trojans, possibly missed by Webroot. Should I be worried that Webroot isn't doing its job? Just wondering, bookburn
Hi I have a valid webroot antivirus version that I have installed without a problem last year. However, when I have tried to reinstall webroot today it couldn't go past error Could not write value id to key SOFTWAREWebrootInstall. Verify that you have sufficient access to that key or contact your support personnel. Does anyone have any solutions to this problem? I've checked my key registry files and I still got Webroot Spysweeper folder in there even tho it is uninstalled everywhere else. Could this be causing problems? I run windows 7 Thank you very much for any help!

Hi everyone, I have Webroot Secure Anywhere. I also use Endicia Dazzle postage program for my business. They recently had an upgrade to their software, and as soon as I upgraded, I could no longer paste addresses into the program. As in, right clicking an address and then trying to right click and paste or Ctrl-V into the program wouldn't work. After about a week of back and forth with support, they finally asked me if I had Webroot. I was kind of surprised, but I said I did. They asked me to shut it down and try to paste. Paste was working again!! They said they didn't know what the fix was, but they were trying to work on it. So I have to shut down Webroot to use this program. I noticed I started having the same problem after installation with another program, but I never associated it with Webroot. So I tried this same fix, and sure enough, paste started to work in that program as well after Webroot was shut down. So I have to shut down Webroot when working in THAT pro

Someone has hacked my email account from my own domain. I process all outgoing and incoming emails with Outlook 2007. Since I don't understand how they can be sending emails from my personal email address, I'm not sure how to solve the problem. Is there any help from Webroot on eliminating this?... or help from anything else?
Hello I am having trouble adding my computers to my webroot SecureAnywhere console online. I tried to use a direct link from my computer that says go to web console but when I tried to do that it said that my key had already been activated. So I tried to delete my computers from the console to see if that would allow it to be added from my computer. That did not happen now the computers won't show up at all. What do I do? I think I might have registered online with a different email address than my computer one but I can't remember. Is there a way to delete a key from the online console so that I can readd my computers?
