I use SecureAnywhere on all devices. I booted a laptop today that uses Windows Vista. When it completed it told me that my antivirus software was turned off. I made several attempts to activate it and couldn't get it done. I tried to turn off the Microsoft Firewall and Defender and couldn't get rid of it. I am not an expert in this type of problems. But it looks like Microsoft is preventing me from useing at least two parts of Secure Anywhere. Question - Is this a user problem (me)? Or, is Microsoft the problem? For now, I have shut that laptop down. Please let me know if anyone has had the same problem and what had to be done for a fix. Thanks
After installing Webroot secure anywhere, Firefox asked to enable the addon. After that it behaved strange, nor responding to clicks (not all the time, but in 60-70% of clicks) I noticed then that I needed to double click on the links to open them. After disabling the extension (126.96.36.199) and restarting firefox everything returned to normal. Is there a workaround and is this a known problem?
Help needed trying to remove a trojan. Webroot scans for Malware but does not detect however my other application is blocking outgoing traffic and prompting the Malicious Website is being blocked. the Process is C:WindowsSysWOW64dllhost.exe Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I noticed that Thunderbird is not listed under active connections in the WR-firewall. It is not under Mozilla, not under Thunderbird. Why is that and why can I send/receive email? B..t.w. the same is true under alowed apps in Windows defender firewall: no Thunderbird. Both are enabled according to the security centre. Using Thunderbird 68.6.0 32 bit, Windows 10 latest update, and Webroot complete.
I am running webroot SecureAnywhere on my Win 7 PC and have concerns that I may have been hacked. I have a few questions to see if you can dispel my fears. My concern is that I was attempting to add a "non-secure" network printer directly to my PC and I'm wondering if this connection/port could have been used to hack into my PC and load/run some erroneous software. Am I exposed with this network printer? Can Webroot detect/prevent this exposure? I recall a brief message indicating a non-secure network. Since adding this printer on 12/15, I noticed that Webroot was updated in my control panel programs on 12/16 without my knowledge. I don't know if this was a coincidence with a new version of Webroot or a spoof related to the new printer. In googling I saw that a new version 188.8.131.52 of Webroot was released on 12/15 so it seems like a valid upgrade. Would Webroo
:I have a new two week old computer that I wanted to get decent virus protection installed. I uninstalled the free 30 day promo software that was on the computer then uploaded a 14 day trial of webroot. When I restarted the computer, my computer would not open. I let it sit for 4 hours hoping that it would find a way. NOPE. So I had to restore my two week old computer to open it. In the process I lost all of the programs that had been uploaded which included a main program for my employer that was essential to my job. I read all of the reviews on this software and installed it believing I would have no issues. Do you put reviews on sites to make it look as though this is the best software???? I have used Kaspersky as well as Norton in the past and had nooo issues. Unless my programs can be restored I will be going on the sites to resolve the lies that are posted. I am just disgusted.
From the various threads/posts, here on the Webroot Forums, I know MBAM 3 Premium runs alongside WSA nicely (at least I think so). But for this post... I've been debating whether or not to finally buy into MBAM Premium. $40 per year seems kinda steep for something that could be obsolete or bested by a competing product in 6 months. So, is the Premium really all that much better OR should I just stick with the on-demand free version? Any experiences or advice?

this problem has been going on for about a week, I think since Microsoft last Windows 10 update on 3/1, security center shows Webroot on and OK, but numerous times during the day on the desktop the slide in notification for action center shows webroot and windows defender turned off click to check security center , I have tried removing webroot completly and reinstalled webroot, tried changing security center in services to auto restarted didn't work, then back to delay start didn't work messages still keep coming , not sure what else to try, it seems numerous windows 10 webroot users are having this problem,and I already put in four message for tech support but no answers yet, any thoughts on this different from what I have tried will help , thanks.

Everytime I open my browser this I get prompted to eneable the webroot extension. Can this not be permenantly enabled? Thanks In advance David
1st off, I'm not sure that I'm using SecureAnywhere *Complete*... I'm using the SecureAnywhere that's provided free to Ally bank customers and I only know that it's SecureAnywhere, that's it. (Side note: that would be an excellent piece of information to add to the GUI) Anywho, for the last few weeks Windows 10 has been popping up this message in the corner of my screen: [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/23928i3754F83F0B5D40DD.png[/img] Ummm... no it's not. At least, I know for a fact that Webroot SecureAnywhere is running... it auto-scans twice a day and I just manually scanned. So FYI Webroot, Windows 10 is dumb, good luck figuring out how to convince Windows that you actually ARE running. It would be nice to not continually be warned that you're turned off when in fact you're not. Please let me know if I can help investigate this further.
I started noticing my harddrive space was dropping rather rapidly once Webroot came into my life. After a quick search online I see --multiple-- topics talking about database files that are anywhere from a few gig to several tens of gigs in size. Help me understand why this is? Is this bad garbage collection? Poor programming? The other competing softwares in this domain have a footprint of FAR less than this. My own Webroot which has been installed for about 3 months managed to grow its DB files to a gargantuan 60GB. That is absurd by any metric you measure by. Go to an IT Enterprise manager and attempt to sell this product to a corporation or business where it is writing gigabytes of files onto a local PC on a daily/weekly basis. Why is this still an issue when I see threads dating back years regarding this EXACT problem. This is 100% not OK and I would have never purchased this software if I had known I would have to 'babysit' its Program Data directory.
Enabling Webroot Filtering Extension causes safe "green padlock" sites to report a message that states "this page includes other resources that are not secure". This image should explain everything. [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/6975iB5A070087E2BD5B4.png[/img]
Long history, but this (while half awake/half sleep) I was browsing (I use Mozilla because I needed the zotero plug in). Then, my tab showed a message indicating that a new update was available... of course very stupidly I say UPDATE... few seconds, while the updating was running" latter I realized my mistake, this was not a mozzila update, I closed the window and inmediatly I looked into the antivirus [b](I have webroot secure anywhere, [/b]), I scanned the computer and nothing was dectected; so check if something was isntalled (Windows 10/ Programs/) and I saw that something was installed this am, so I unisntalled.... my concern is that in theory, webroot have to 1) informed when a website was suspicios 2) detect (warned me or something) that I was downloading/installing something dangerous; but it did not. The scan did not detect anything wrong. So far, I did not noticed anything wrong but it could be that my info, passwords or whatever personal informati
