Was just looking thru some of the settings for Firewall/Web shield in advanced settings and I noticed that the box for Web filtering driver was NOT checked by default. Was curious as to why it wouldn't be and are there any disadvantages / drawbacks to having it enabled?
So When I went to make the webroot chrome extension activive (it was greyed out and I hadn't noticed till I had webroot for a monthor two) I noticed that there were two of them. Worried that i had accidently downloaded a fake one I removed both from chrome. However I later learned (or at least I'm fairly certain) that they were both from Webroot and the newer version for some reason had simply failedd to remove the older extension. The Problem I'm facing though is that I cant seem to find any way to get the extension back, it isn't on web store and i can't find it in Webroot. I found a page on Community that did lead to a Webroot extension called "Webroot Filtering Extension" . This did not bring back the button for the extension and I think it's the wrong extension. If anyone could help me find the actual extension that'd be great. Thanks, sauronofmordor P.S. even tho I selected the Internet security Plus board i can't find anything that says the "plus" at the end, but it was internet
Having two issues for the past week or so. 1. I have two iterations of WRSA.exe opening up when my PC boots in Windows 7. One is less than 1MB, the other fluctuates. 2. For current session, I get zeroes all across. I can still scan a file manually but honestly don't know if this affects my real time protection. This doesn't happen every time but I prefer a more constant state rather than re-booting & hoping it sorts itself out. Any help would be appreaciated.
Recently, I created a storage folder on my laptop, I cleaned it out, and now it won't delete. The thing that scares me is when I try to remove it says "This file is open in another program." I tried using elevated cmd, but I just got the same message. I checked Task Manager, no suspicious programs were running in the background and I scanned the computer, and it came up clean, so I'm out of ideas. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
So my Webroot is greyed out and showing an alert, but I'm paid up until this November. Scans are clean. The only other thing is that I got this computer at Best Buy with Geeksquad support, which Webroot wants me to renew on. I renewed my Geeksquad (and got another year of Webroot so it expires November 2019) but the icon is still greyed out with the alert symbol. What can I do to make it go back to normal? It doesn't feel right when it does this.
Hats off to Webroot Staff for clearing up to spam postings. Ive noticed a void however while searching the various topics and wondered if the Staff could comment. Not so long ago there was a super valuable group of Forum Wizards who would come to the rescue of Webroot customers who had a question or an issue. Lately I have noticed that when a customer has a question the responders are always suggesting to open a support ticket. Where have all those Wizards ( not that the Webroot staff aint wizards ) gone to ???? Folks like Jasper the Rasper and Sheltieuk and Acooldozen and Muddy7 and Baldrick and J.P.and especially Sherry; used to reply with a solution in the blink of an eye To open up a support ticket seems a waste of time and a burden on the technicians compared to those Wizards who used to faithfully reply in a matter of moments. Thumbs up for correcting the spam issue but its now time to bring back the Forum Wizards.
Anybody else getting message from Windows 10 that Webroot is off even when Webroot window says everything IS on? At first even said Windows Defender was off but was able to turn that back on in Control Panel but not the Webroot. Again, the Webroot window itself does show that everything is, indeed, on. Anybody have any experience and/or advice on this?
[b]Hi everyone,[/b] [b]I had downloaded Webroot Internet security plus following purchasing the software license for three devices. When I entered the keycode it went through and the software was up and running. I then took that same keycode and put it in the second laptop and I received a prompt that said, "Invalid keycode". That was strange I never had any issue in the past. I tried entering the keycode again and before my eyes, the keycode changed. :S I went back to the first laptop again to check the keycode and it had changed to the same exact one that gave the "invalid keycode". [/b] [b]My question then becomes, has anyone ever experienced this? Is this something new?[/b] [b]Thanks a bunch![/b]
Uninstalling "Webroot Secure Anywhere" and the Webroot Browser app from my Android (running Nougat). I tried going into settings-apps and just hitting Uninstall. Both [b]appear[/b] gone but doing that didn't clean [i][b]all[/b][/i] the Webroot files out. Could someone please tell me how to clean out the last of those files? From both the Webroot Secure Anywhere app [b]and[/b] the browser app? [b]I looked in Administrator Settings[/b] as one post advised, but neither program shows up there anymore, so that won't help or isn't the problem. I [b]also tried downloading an .exe file[/b] that supposedly helps uninstall the last of those Webroot files on Windows; but Android isn't Windows, and exe files won't run. (Nor am I geek enough, sigh, to tweak anything. No real idea what I'm doing here.) Help? Thanks!!
I am using Webroot's browser SecureWeb on my Android phone. If I want to download an image I hold my finger on the image and a "Download image" prompt is displayed. I then get an icon in my notifications on top that looks like a cloud with says Download failed. I do not get this issue using the Android browser nor with Chrome. Is there a setting I can change to allow me to download images using SecureWeb?
How is it that a Company that specializes in Internet Security cant rid its own self from a mentally challenged poster who spams an imaginary Support Digits day in and day out ? Its quite apparent that the new and improved mode of operation is seriously lacking.Ive been a user of Webroot for quite some time but my tolerance is being tested with an abundance of spam that Webroot cant seem to get rid of. Earlier today I tried to send a private message but was denied because of " Bad Words " Well........there were no bad words in my message but Webroot told me that a digit was a bad word so I spelled out the digit using letters. When I attempted to send the message I got a big Red warning that I had used up my total sum of private messages for the day and to try sending it later. So once again I ask.....whats up with Webroot and can they clean up their act ? Absolutely and quite sincerely, Robert
I just went through a problem with Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Plus on Windows 10 operating system where I tried to run an AutoDesk self-extracting zip executable program. The program created a new folder where I specified on each attempt, but failed to continue with any file extractions. I looked at the Block/Allow files on webroot, but this program was not listed. However Windows 10 showed this program in both detailed and undetailed view for task manager. I double-clicked this executable to start it. On one attempt I let the process continue long enough that my entire computer hung up where mouse and keyboard became unresponsive. I had to put the computer into hibernation mode to escape. When I exited hibernation mode, I disabled the firewall in webroot and the program imediately extracted the files and allowed me to install AutoCad on the PC. 1) Does webroot normally detect that a double-clicked executable is being blocked as
Hello! I want to know if it is possible to solve this particular hurdle of mine, and hopefully help other AE users that might have the same problem. I am a heavy user of scripts in After Eeffects. Aescripts is one of the main resources for powerful tools and scripts, many free, most paid, and I have many licenses with them. The problem is with their chosen licensing method. Basically, when After Effects opens, multiple .exes with random strings for names will be created, one for every script that is checking it's license. After a moment, the license is validated, and AE loads. The next time the program opens, the process will occur again. The thing is that webroot is catching those randomly named exes as security risks. That hangs AE, causes the license of all the scripts to be disabled, and generates multiple errors. The only solution is to restart AE with the realtime shield disabled, and then manally re-enter the license code for every script th
Hi everyone, I'd like to know what sort of protection is available to protect data in lost/stolen pc. For example, upon request, can webroot wipe the data or prevent it from being accessed? And if webroot doesn't do that sort of stuff, are there other programs/ security systems that can be purchased to do that?
