I have a 3PC 3 year licence for WR Security essentials due to expire in 40 days. I have let two of those PCs update to security anywhwere essentials, but I have not registered an online webroot account for them. I have a 4th PC so yesterday downloaded the trial version for Anywhere complete. I'm pretty sure I will end up buying a 5 user 2 year licence of the complete version to cover all my PCs. I want to try the password protection on the trial version of complete so need to register. Should I register the trial code number for Anywhere complete and will it be easy to convert that to the full 5 user 2 year licence. Will it be a problem if I also register the current keycode that I have for the Essential 3 pc 3 year liscence that I currently have? Also, as currently the offer for a 1 year licence gives an extra 3 months, will I get the extra 3 months if I buy a 2 year licence? Thanks
I've recently installed Anywhere Complete 2012 after having to reformat my pc due to a virus that bypassed my previous antivirus software (McAfee). Total reformat (actually, reformatted twiced because it still seemed kind of buggy after the first reformatting), then installed this software. Now, my pc freezes periodically. Its random, not specific to any particular website, but always occurring while I'm browsing the internet. Since I'm new this to this antivirus software, I'm wondering if the freezing is occurring because of scanning or something else concerning Webroot. Has anyone else seen this occur or experienced this problem? I'm hoping its simply a setting I can adjust that will fix the issue. Thanks for any feedback.
Running a limited user account will effectively mitigate against the majority of Windows vulnerabilities. [url=http://www.webroot.com/En_US/business/land/analyzer.html?sc=701F0000000dIns]System Analyzer[/url] will notify you in the event you are running an administrative account, rather than a limited (or "standard") user account. [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/250i0EAE2948EC3F64B2.png[/img] Why is it a good idea to run a limited user account? Our own Dancho Danchev wrote [url=http://www.zdnet.com/blog/security/report-64-of-all-microsoft-vulnerabilities-for-2009-mitigated-by-least-privilege-accounts/5964]an article for ZDNet[/url] a while back that explains just how important this can be. The article may be getting a bit old, but the principle behind it hasn't changed. Many exploits require administrative rights to function at all. Certain other malware can be contained to affecting only the limited user acc
Hi, I've had webroot SA installed since July. Today I booted up my PC (running Win 7 Ultimate 32bit) and webroot didn't start up at all. I had a look in the start menu and tried to start it from there but a message came up saying it had been moved. I checked the webroot folder in the Program Files folder and that is now completely empty (the last modification was 11 am GMT on the 19th of August i.e. the last time I booted up my PC). Does anyone know what the problem could be? Cheers, J
When I change the day and the time ( so lets say I want to scan every Tuesday at 10 am) I have to confirm that of course, so I do that but then I get the message that my PC is "currently managed by Web Console" and that my settings "may be overwritten on the next database communication"; so I click OK and fill in an encrypted code (bbyy2q, for instance) and then my settings should have been saved! However, that is not so; as soon as I reopen WebSecureAnywhere Complete and take a look at the settings they are back to "Scan every day " and "Scan before 8.00 am when the computer is idle". I want to manage the days and times of the scans myself! So how can I make 'the scheduled scan page' work?
Is anyone else having this problem or know a solution? I can only access Facebook (I use an HTTPS connection to it) if the Facebook Social Network Protection is turned off to none. Obviously, I don't want to roam Facebook with no protection, so this isn't a good thing. Has anyone had this problem and know what a work around could be? Any chance that it's the HTTPS access to FB that's causing a conflict? Thanks!
After installing WSA Complete, my “remembered” website login settings (user and password) are no longer visible or active in IE7 or Chrome. I understood that the Identify Shield controls these, so I unchecked the shield setting, “Prevent programs from accessing protected credentials." This did not help. I also changed the “Protected Applications” setting for IE7 from “Protect” to “Allow.” Still, my login settings are missing and must be entered manually. I am interested in eventually going to Password Management, but want to restore this password convenience temporarily. Can anyone help? What am I missing?
How can I access my backup files from a different computer? When I log into my webroot account under the backup section it says "View, download or share any of your files or photo albums that you are securely storing online from any computer with Internet access." However, underneath it only has a "buy backup" option. When I click on that, my keycodes come up and it shows that I have the Complete version that comes with 10GB of storage. I've synced the files from my laptop. I just can't figure out how to view them from a computer other than my laptop. Please help! Also, when trying to use SecureSync on my Android device - it's asking for a PIN. I don't remember ever setting a PIN so how can I reset it?
It's not very accurate in its analysis of my system, and the "complete report" doesn't tell which "Important updates" my system is missing. That's not much help at all, in fact it's very disappointing and on my system at least appears to be inaccurate. I run Windows Update manually, and I keep the BITS and "Automatic Updates" services disabled since I discovered years ago that Microsoft was applying updates to my system even though I had told it "Notify me but don't automatically download or install them". However, before running WSA, I enabled BITS and the AU service. Even so, Webroot's "complete report" says: Windows Updates ---------------------------------------------------------------- Auto Update State Disabled Update Type Auto-Updates Disabled Last Update Check Never Last Update Download Never Last Update Install Never (90 days ago) Next Scheduled Update Check 2009-06-11 01:29:29 Next Scheduled Install Time Never but in fact I ran W.U. earlier today and rebo
Does Webroot fully support the Opera and Chrome browsers? I have noticed that search results, say from google, do not contain the check or X marks that show up in IE. I have noticed in Chrome, results are encrypted with a https: connections, but Opera is http:. No security icons appear on either browser, though.
Webroot secure anywhere did not detect 3 trojans in the sun java cache folder which norton 360 6.0 picked up, I was suspicious something was going on that webroot secure anywhere did not pick up so I installed norton 360 after uninstalling webroot. Webroot deep scan did not find it either. On another note I was wondering if webroot secure anywhere protects against ddos attacks? Thanks
HI, I am new to webroot. I am also not very clued up re technical information. I can get by usually downloading and using the internet etc but quite ignorant really:@ I have webroot complete installed on laptop and pc, and it works very well. I am really pleased with it. However, I am trying to install it on my Samsung S11. My notifications say that it is downloaded, but I can't find it anywhere on my phone, and also though I logged in to my account at no time during the instal was I asked for any code. I have checked my webroot account on my pc and the phone is not listed. I have tried twice now, but just keep getting directed to the google play site and go through all the same screens, but still can't seem to add my phone to my account or see where webroot is stored. Can anyone help with a very simple step by step guide or tell me where I am going wrong. I think I have the free version installed somewhere on my phone ....but not sure. By the way I am completely new to this fo
Hello, I am a new user here, so please forgive me if this is in the wrong section.

I didn't see another message like this one, please forgive me if there's a duplicate thread. I am interested in purchasing the "Essentials" product, but noticed the "Complete" version also includes Android device protection. Does anyone know if this is in addition to the 3 PCs covered by the product, or if each Android device counts against the 3 PCs covered?

Is it possible for webroot tech supoort to close my current account and then I could create a new account with a new e mail address and transfer my current Secure Anywhere Complete key to the new account? Reason I kind of would like to do this is because on my account page the Backup and Password icons are orange and say "[b]Your keycode has now expired.[/b] To continue accessing Backups please renew your keycode now, or your data may be lost." This has happen because I had tech support change my current key from an international key one to a local USA key one. I relize its only a cozmedic glitch but it kind of bothers me :( lol
