[b]I notice IE11 is now listed in Windows Updates as "important". I currently have IE9 on Windows 7 64bit. I do not have a touch screen and use keyboard/mouse to navigate web etc. Does WSA work with it, ie as regards safe search ticks etc, and is it worth upgrading to IE 11 in the first place?[/b] [b]George[/b]
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
I ran something that turned out to probably be a trojan by allowing it once because I trusted the software which was probably really stupid, I ended up using webroot to remove it. Is it too late for my computer now even though it's removed? Do I need to essentially reformat clean my pc? Scan shows nothing, but still I guess in theory just because the trojan generator is gone it could still be running what ever it put on my computer right? I'm ignorant when it comes to this stuff.
Hello all, I'm fairly new to Webroot. I had a couple of questions on what is needed to recover a system that is hit by Ransomware. Sorry, I've searched until i'm sick of looking for answers. I decided to try posting my questions instead. If there is a guide for this already, can someone please point me in the right direction? Say I get hit with Ransomware and my entire system is encrypted and no longer usable. 1. What steps do I need to do at that point? 2. Do I need to log into [b]my.webrootanywhere.com/[/b] from another PC and try to recover my system? 2. What information do I need to provide to Webroot support for them to try to remotely restore the system? Basically I want to create an "emergency recovery kit" with details on recovery steps, Webroot contact information, my account info., etc. I want to keep this information external to my computer so that if it goes down, I have all the information ne
I just bought a renewal subscription for my PC, I went to "My Account" and clicked activate a new keycode. I placed the new key listed in the email sent to me and hit activate.. but received an error message saying the kay has expired. How is that possible? Please help, I am unsure what I am doing wrong Thanks
Hello and thanks for looking at my question.. Scenario one, a user visits a site and is alerted by your software that is a risky site. The user chooses to ignore the warning and contiunes to view the site. in this scenario has the user told WSE to trust anything coming from this site? I ask this because I want to visit a site that is flagged, which i find hard to believe, but I don't want to openmyself up to virus. If I don't download anything from the site and just read the text, am i still safe?
I was wondering if anyone else was using WSA with another AV. I know WSA has become much more robust than the Prevx days when it was marketed as an additional security layer to detect the threats that other AV's commonly missed. If you are using WSA with another AV then are you having any conflicts? I just installed WSA 18.104.22.168 with the final release of NOD 32 V7.0.302.0. I have not rebooted yet, but immediately I just had an issue with Firefox right after installing WSA. I clicked Firefox, and it never did run. I waited for about 30 seconds, and it never ran. I clicked it again, and it ran about 3 seconds after I clicked it a second time. I checked the task manager, and there was 2 instances of Firefox running.
Hello again, not here very often but I have some questions that I could not find answers to. 1.- If a program is monitored, it will not go back to "Allow" after some time, even when it is a known safe program? What got me worried a bit is that after a fresh install, WSA set explorer.exe (and lsm.exe) to monitor. Both 100% clean on virustotal. Is this a new default behavior or should I REALLY start worrying? 2.- When I allow a trusted program, it still gets blocked? In this case GSC.exe, I get a "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000018)" message. When I disable the realtime shield, it runs. I like very much how WSA protects you, even if you don't want it to haha! Seriously, I trust you guys know what is best, but where is the limit of user control. I know GSC has FP issues but is considered safe. So if a user allows a program, why not keep monitoring it instead of blocking it completely? cheers, Wammes
I have a major annoying problem with webroot. Netflix doesn't use Silverlight in internet explorer 11 Instead it uses HTML5 Problem is that whenever I try to watch netflix I get sound but no video. I just get a black screen. I have done testing and realised it is webroot causing this. If I disable webroot netflix works fine. If I re-enable webroot then netflix stops working. I don't want to be having to disable my anti-virus just to watch netflix so anyone know how to fix this without disabling webroot?
Recent tried W10 in Oracle VirtualBox briefly but since I had a spare HD, I installed that and put W10 on it. Ater installing it yesterday and installing a few programs one of which was Webroot. That was build 9841 but I heard that 9860 was out so I forced the update. After churning away for over an hour, I find the install stop because I needed to uninstall Webroot. I had the option to uninstall or pause so I clicked uninstall but it left the pause button there. Some time later, I clicked on pause and find a window asking if I really wanted to uninstall Webroot. More time but I bailed, rebooted, it continued to install and complete after about 45 minutes. This morning booted into W10, I had reinstalled Webroot but I see no desktop icon. After a few seconds, it boots with a message that it has problems. It did this three times finally I was given the option to go into W7. Looks like I'll have to reinstall W10. Anyone
I tend to keep my webroot settings heuristics set to maximum since it doesn't bug any programs or games or anything as well as keeping the firewall set to "Warn if any new, untrusted process connects to the internet" (which i've seen in action dl'ing a program to clean up my PC and didn't see something i need to uncheck until after I hit "OKAY") and it prompted to block the outgoing connection and a few seconds later deleted the whole 2nd thing it tried to download. That being said, I saw this earlier today [url=https://avlab.pl/sites/default/files/68files/ENG_2016_ransomware.pdf]https://avlab.pl/sites/default/files/68files/ENG_2016_ransomware.pdf[/url] and by putting these settings up a bit (as to where i have it set now) does it actually help to possibly block these better? I know it's ransomware, and i know webroot does an awesome job blocking sites in real time to not even get infected in the first place, but specifically the heuristics set to MAX, woul
I've upgraded to Windows 10 and the Edge browser isn't showing my Webroot toolbar or search result checkmarksKnowledge Base
At the time of the Windows 10 launch, the Edge browser does not have the capability to add extensions like Chrome and Firefox. Because of this, we obviously can't add our extensions to the Edge browser. Microsoft has stated that they will be adding extension capabilities to the Edge browser in the future. When that happens we'll port our extensions over like we do for all the major browsers. In the meantime you can either continue to use the Edge browser without extensions, or use one of the browsers that does support our extensions: Mozilla Firefox - 3.6 or higher Google Chrome - 10.0 or higher Internet Explorer - 7.0 or higher (only available on Windows 10 Pro) You can read more about the browser capabilities and plans on Windows Central [url=http://www.windowscentral.com/microsoft-edge-browser-wont-pick-extension-support-until-after-rtm]here[/url]. [b]Still no changes from Microsoft on this. June 25, 2017 [/b]
I am using MS Vista Home Edition and when I use any web browser (IE, Chrome, Foxfire) I get two of the same characters for the one I type. If I turn off Indentity Shield this goes away. I do not have this typing issue with other programs.I would like to keep Indentity Shield on. Any thoughts?
NOD32 and OA are being replaced with Norton 360 Premier. What is the proper method to install Norton on a Win7x64 system? (Added: Norton is not being placed on my system, I regretted doing so over a decade ago and additional research showed I would regret it again. Currently, only Webroot Secureanywhere Antivirus is installed.) Webroot can be initially disabled but a reboot caused an upgrade of ESET to go really, really, bad. I would like to avoid this problem on the Win7 system. The community is being asked because supports final answer was; "the Webroot software you own from us is a full antivirus suite meaning that is all you need, so you do not need to antivirus applications." (edited to indicate change of mind)
