Hi there.
Its just a reminder that you have to activate the software either by a product key or online, webroot will not work properly until you have done this.
If you don't want the program at all, uninstall it.


Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

Spysweeper and internet explorer


Webroot is an Internet security company based out of Colorado.
The company, founded in 1997, offers Internet security programs for businesses and home users.
The Webroot Internet Security Essentials and Webroot Internet Security Complete programs include a firewall that's designed to monitor incoming data and filter out potentially unsafe data.
Consequently, Webroot does not recommend that you disable the firewall.
Nevertheless, if you want to use a different firewall or if the firewall is blocking legitimate data, disable it with a few clicks.

Launch the Webroot program.
Click "Edit Settings" under "PC Security" in the "Home" panel.
The PC Security panel opens.
Click the "Firewall" tab.
Check the circle next to "Allow All Traffic." The Webroot Firewall is now disabled.

I tried to do an update on my webroot internet security essentials. It said there was another program running that needed to be uninstalled before I can update. It uninstalled everything. Now I'm having...


You may have another anti-virus program running which is preventing you from running your Wbebroot program. You can only have one anti virus program running at a time as they usually conflict with one another. With XP, you may have downloaded Microsoft Security Essentials. You can see if it's loaded and running by clicking on Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, and Services. Scroll down to the "M's" and see if the "Microsoft Antimalware Service" is listed. If it is, double click on it, and then stop the service by clicking on STOP. Then change the :startup type" to Manual and click on apply and OK. After you do this (or if the Microsoft Antimalware Service is not listed) perform the following.
Shut down yur PC and then power it back up. Immeadiately start tapping the F8 key until you see a menu titled "Windows advanced Options". Use the arrow keys to highlight "Safe Mode with Networking" and press enter. At the log-in screen click on Administrator and then click on "yes" to proceed into safe mode.
Windows will load witha minimal set of drivers. Now put in your Wbroot CD and try to load the program. If if dowsn't load, use "Add Remove Programs"in Control Panel to remove the program, After the program is removed, shut down your computer, start it again in safe mode, and then you should be able to load your Webroot software.
Finally shut down your computer and restart it in the normal manner, If Webroot still will not function, some other program you have loaded is interfering with it. You will have to find and remove the program or contact Webroot for further assistance.
If you have any additional questions contact me by clicking on the "Add a comment" link located under your problem description on FixYa. Also, if you believe that this information was helpful to you, please return to the FixYa website and rate my response to your question.

Webroot firewall pop ups keeps pop up non-stop how do i stop this? please help!


Have you tried a pop up blocker?

Here's one, and in my opinion it is g r e a t !

Pop up Blocker ** free**

www.panicware.com


Also some useful information below. Hope it helps.

SPEAKING WITH MY EXPERIENCE TRY SOMETHING ELSE.

FREE SPYWARE
Download Spybot Search & Destroy. Restart computer, then run Spybot to see what spyware comes up, AND DELET IT.

FYI---Virus Protection-- 2 programs of virus protection will conflict with each other and will actually cancel out the protection. SO just download one.

Running Spybot Search & Destroy with EITHER Avast or Avg (great Free virus protection programs ) will keep a computer in good working condition. FREE

HERE ARE SOME LINKS, THAT WOULD BE BETTER:
NEW *****Somthing new FROM MICROSOFT.*** 2009 ---Security Essentials
http://www.microsoft.com

Pop up Blocker ** free******
www.panicware.com

*****Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.5.2 ****

FREE SPYWARE
http://www.download.com/Spybot-Search-De…

****Avast ***FREE ANTI VIRUS PROGRAM
http://www.avast.com/eng/home-registrati…

****AVG ****FREE SPYWARE PROGRAM
http://www.free.avg.com

**Ccleaner*** FREE
http://www.download.com/3120-20_4.html?q…

***Malware**** FREE
http://www.malwarebytes.org/.


$ *** KASPERSKY ***
http://www.kaspersky.com

There are alot of $ anti-virus and Internet security programs out there,


ie: Norton, McAfee, Panda, Bitdefender. If you would like to pay $ then get ***Kaspersky***-- 2010 , I feel that is the best for your money.

REMEMBER TO KEEP UP THE DAILY MAINTENANCE ON ALL OF YOUR COMPUTERS.!

Good Luck.

Shows not activated when computer turned on


Regardless if you installed from a disk or downloaded online, there should be either a registration or activation key in order for it to work. Look on the box or check your email (spam folder possibly) to see if you can find it. Let me know if this helps or not! :)
