Something changed with W toolbar icon - can't copy userid or pw
Hi, I'm browsing with Firefox on Windows 10. Things changed recently. I used to click the W icon on the upper right toolbar and it would display a logon screen near the center of the screen. Once logged in, I could visit a site, and then I could click the W and see the 'Show Mathching Sites' line, hover my cursor over that, then select the site, and from there it would open a menu of options, including the items "copy userid" and "copy password". I would then be able to copy the userid to go paste into another dialog and then come back in a moment and copy the password and copy that into a dialog. The dialog is not on the open web page - it's a separate program that requires the same userid and password that I use to login to the site that I have open. I don't think Webroot recognizes the program because it never asked if I want to save the site when I fillin the dialog. Probably because it's not a site. Anyway,... Now when I click on the W it has a dropdown login s

'your windows computer has been blocked'
okay, was browsing on Yahoo's homesite today and saw an article regarding retirement figures from u.s. newsweek or the like. Clicked on and Bam, I got the stupid blue screen and popup message that would not go away. I used task manager to shut it down and did a webroot scan. Nothing found. I did a shutdown and power up, webroot scan, nothing found. I checked my programs and nothing was installed, according to the programs list. Should I presume that since Webroot is not finding anything I am safe from the stupid ransomware? I will not be visiting the yahoo homepage anymore. Usually my Webroot gives me the don't go there message and lets me get out of there. Thanks in advance.

Website Blocked Only In Certain Browsers
Hello, I have recently installed Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Complete on my computer. When I tried playing Farmville in Facebook, I would get a notification that "serve.truex.com" was harmful. Upon further investigation, I found that the website "truex.com" is an advertising content delivery website. Now here's the thing: I don't mind the website being blocked. When I navigate to that website in IE11 and Firefox 26, webroot blocks it with a warning. When I navigate to that website in Google Chrome browser, the site is not blocked and no warning is issued. I am worried about the inconsistency in potentially malicious website blocking based upon which browser is used.
My right click option to scan attached devices or permanently delete a file has disappeared
It was there at one time because I've used it. Went to scan a USB thump drive before giving it to someone and all the right click options have disappeared. Is there a work around to scan the thump drive without the right click options?
Computer At Risk Message Pops up After Installation
Hello Everyone. In my last post I was told How to activate my Webroot Complete. Everything was working Ok, But I started getting that Red message indicating that my computer is at risk Buy webroot. So I activated again. But again that message pops up that my subscription has expired and now It is green again. Could you please let me know what is going on. Do I have to activate the computer every few hours ? If I keep on activating the same computer, Do I loose my Activation for my other computer ? Thank you very much.
Curious as to why some features are not on by default
Heya -- loving the new version, but I'm curious as to why some things are not enabled by default...I could be wrong, but it seems as though the "Enable enhanced heuristics based on behavior, origin, age, and popularity of files" sort of behavior used to be the default, not just "Enable standard heuristics." Also, I'm curious as to why "Enable Webroot Infrared" is not enabled by default, as well as protecting the hosts file? I'm glad all these features are there of course, not complaining, just ... wondering. Since things like Infrared are selling points of the new version, I would have thought they would be on by default.
How do I Disable the Webroot Filtering Extension in Chrome
Webroot Secure Anywhere v126.96.36.199, Windows 8.1, Chrome browser v45.x How do I disable the Webroot Filtering Extension in Chrome? This is what it says ... and I cannot uncheck the Enabled box. [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/21366iD2266B68E3F86270.jpg[/img]
How do I get the Webroot Filtering Extension Certified for Firefox?
I am running Windows 10 on a desktop HP-Envy 700-074, no touch-screen. Firefox 41.0b5, it just upgraded. Now the Webroot icon is gone and the add-on says, "Webroot Filtering Extension could not be verified for use in Firefox and has been disabled" Maybe my subject question is too specific, maybe I should ask, "How do I get Webroot Secure Anywhere to work in Firefox 40?" The icon in the instructions simply isn't there...
3 things to say here.
1. I can't log into my Back-up and Save. (already have a webroot account set-up but it''s not showing me a sign in thing.) 2.[b] I love this Community!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!![/b] :heart: 3. If I wanted to upgrade or update my subscription to webroot..... should I go with the Complete Version again? (I'll probably renew my subscription at some point anyway.)
Web Shield (v188.8.131.52) doesn't block in Opera
I have noticed that Web Shield of the latest build doesn't block the bad pages in Opera 12.14. However they are blocked in IE9. The shield in the previous beta build 184.108.40.206 worked fine in Opera 12.14. So something had to be changed between these two builds.
My PC Infected by an AutoIT script

Unidentified IE add-on
There is an add-on that I noticed in IE with the label of Webroot, but Webroot is not identified as the publisher, just shown as "not available". What is this add-on, specifically what does it do, and what are the effects of turning it on or off? I know what the following add-ons do and I am not enquiring about them - Webroot Filtering Extention Webroot Toolbar Webroot Vault I've been troubleshooting some issues with IE 9, 10 and 11 and need to know what this particular add-on does by itself, and also what it does in relation to the other 3 add-ons. Any help much appreciated! Edited to add screenshot below which I did not realise was possible to do. [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/14513i07E507C5CD7E5367.jpg[/img]
Version 2014: I am curious
We have heard a few little hints and teases about the upcoming 2014 version in various threads here, and the kind of things you at Webroot are working on. So, you know me, if I have a question I will ask it: I was recently called a "Pest" by an un-named member here :D No offense taken, I found it quite funny :) Anyway... Is there an estimated date of release set for the 2014 versions yet? :D
Serious Issues with Password Manager - Users Beware
As many of us users know the cost to renew webroot is often cheaper from other vendors than from their own site. I purchased a new key for my account this year and entered it onto all of my PCs before the expiration of the old account. Two days ago I went to access my password manager and it would not allow me to log in. I tried to create a sub user account to see if that would help and no access either. I have been working with thier secure email tech support for two days now and finally got so fed up with the lack of help and information that was being given that I called in to their support group. I was then told this: The password manager is a third party company that we have little control over. In the event that you allow an account to expire (which apparently happens when a particular key code expires) the account is locked and cannot be accessed - EVER. Yes thats right, two years of passwords for hundreds of sites are now unavailable to me. The tech guy was j
WSAC(Mac) and Cocktail potential incompatibility?
Just observed that after WSAC 220.127.116.11 and Cocktail 7.0.3 has run it's weekly maintenance that WSAC had to run a full scan (ala it's initial scan when installed) after Cocktail finished! Presumably Cocktail tickled a local WSAC database that should have been hidden? Early days as I haven't had time to both repeat and also check on my other Mavericks 10.9.2 testbeds yet but thought I'd mention it for any interested Mac user that might have the opportunity to test for themselves (and me of course!) ;) Yes, insufficient data - far too early to raise a Support Ticket!! .....and yes I appreciate the Cocktail= "snake oil" argument, and No Cocktail does not have a method of file/directory exclusion (that I've found anyway), and no I haven't raised this with Cocktail Support either...
