The music thread - What are you listening to?
Hey everyone, Shran here! I figured since we have good night and good morning threads, a picture thread, and a joke thread, why not have a music thread where we can share some of the music we like, too? Just post the name of the Song and Artist you are or have recently listened to, and maybe a link to the song on YouTube or some lyrics from the song :D. I'll go first: [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YbvCIXdQmw]Paradise by the Italian disco group Change - 1981[/url]
Tell Us About Your Animals
In relation to the posts in [url=https://community.webroot.com/t5/Non-Techie/Tell-Us-About-Yourself/td-p/27362]thread[/url] started by [b]RWM[/b] I thought we could show here on the Community that apart Webroot liking we are also human beings with passion for animals. I will kick off this thread .... I am a big animal lover especially dogs but living in an apartment in the downtown I don't have to much space for them. So I with my wife and daughter have been having yorkshire terriers for many years who perfectly fit to apartments. Presently we have two terrier ladies aged 3 and 2 years. My father has a breeding station of the german shepherds for tens of years, so I grew up between dogs and I am used to be surrounded by them. During years together with parents we have had also dobermans, btw they are very good for house guarding ;) We have also close friends who have a farm with horses where we go as the time allows. I have to admit that my wife is much better in riding than me.

How Well is Your System Protected?? --Five Simple Test from AMTSO
If you want to check whether your Webroot defences are working properly, AMTSO has a series of tests you can perform. These are relatively simple, which will check to see whether your browser, operating system and other software are configured to block malicious and drive-by downloads, and phishing attacks. I ran the tests on my systems, and Webroot scored 5/5 on every computer. [url=http://www.amtso.org/feature-settings-check.html]http://www.amtso.org/feature-settings-check.html[/url]
The Battle With Cancer Begins
I remember when [b]TripleHelix[/b] and I joined this forum there were only a few members. It sure has grown within a year. During the end of last year[b] TH[/b] and I communicated by PM’s about my health problem. The beginning of last year my white blood count was elevated. Another blood test was done near the end of the year and it was still elevated. I had a bone marrow biopsy done and on October 26 I was diagnosed to have [u]Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia[/u]. The cancer is in the early stage and as of now I don’t need Chemotherapy. I have found the hardest part after going through the initial shock of getting this bad news is telling family members and friends that you have it. I still haven’t told my sister because she has gone through enough last year with her husband passing away after 50 years of marriage. The reason for posting this is because I believe some members have seen a slow down with my activity on the forum. Just wanted to let you know [b]Webroot is the Best[/b] and I

2022 BrightCloud® Threat Report: The year of innovation for cybercrimeReport
Our latest BrightCloud Threat Report is finally here! This year, our findings show us that cybercriminals are improving their efforts to evade detection. 2021 was the year where everything security-related that could go wrong did go wrong. We witnessed unprecedented attacks on the supply chain around the world. Despite American and Russian coordinated efforts to take down Emotet, REvil, and Conti, cybercriminals found avenues to resurrect themselves and carry out their lethal efforts.The normalization of remote and hybrid work continued to shift the way bad actors pursue lucrative avenues for exploitation. We also witnessed cybercriminals strategically releasing their executed attacks during specific times of the year.Our report is full of great insights. Some key findings include:The Middle East, Asia, and Africa were the regions with the highest percentage of infections. 53% of consumer PCs were infected more than once, and 19% infected more than 5 times. Apple was most often imperso

Carbonite to Acquire WebrootNews
I have exciting news to share with our Community. Webroot has entered into an [url=https://carbonitewebroot.transactionannouncement.com/][u]agreement[/u][/url] to be acquired by Carbonite, a leader in cloud-based data protection for businesses.

New Community UX Enhancements
We've been working hard over the last few weeks on trying to enhance the overall design and UX of the homepage on the community. Today, I'm happy to announce that we launched these improvements! The biggest thing you'll notice is the new tiled nav in the center column. We've made it easier to find what you need at a high level without having to scroll and scroll down to the bottom of the page. We will also be moving some of the components from the side rail into the main nav. Other improvements include: [list] [*]Shrinking the size of the header image [*]Replacing default folder icons with cusom icons [*]Header mobile styles updated/fixed issues for mobile icons and overall treatment (both consumer and business) [*]Header link style updated to make link more readable (both consumer and business) [*]Sidebar general style update to the headings/titles [*]Update to tile styling to make cleaner and sharper display overall, and more interactive[/li

Howdy! New Webroot user here!
Hi! I am a brand new Webroot member who just left her Norton antivirus behind. Being probably the LEAST tech savvy person on the planet didn't help me much, but when they couldn't help get the product to work right I was done. I had gotten some advice from people I trust that Webroot was the way to go so I made th switch but I see alot of differences in the way Webroot scans and how much it scans vs. the way Norton would do a full system scan. I guess you could say that while I'm unsavvy in the tech world, I do have alot of questions because I just need to make sense of things in the way they run for my own peace of mind. Since the support crew isn't available over the weekends I thought I'd get my feet wet by posting here to see how others like Webroot and if they had used Norton before if they had also noticed the differences that I do. Anyway, hello again and thanks for perusing my note!
Forum Trouble with Win. XP
I have been having trouble with the Webroot Forum loading on my XP computer using IE-8. This has been happening for awhile and it seems the more posts in a thread the longer it takes to load. This happens on [b]both[/b] XP machines. I have done all I could, clean cookies / IE / defrag etc. and it's still doing it. I have no problems with FF on the forum. This only happens on the Webroot Forum. Other forums load normal with IE-8.
