Would you know how to get rid of the WEbroot Desktop Firewall-Application Control large sign that is right in the middle of my computer screen--It makes it hard to do e-mails

Go to start menu then run type in MSCONFIG then go to startup items. Disable the on screen application for the firewall but not the firewall itself it should stop posting the application on the screen shot. Do not delete just disable startup item. I would also disable anything else that is annoying you a well. It will not hurt your computer. Thanks for using FixYa! John

Webroot firewall keeps shuting down and giving error

If you are referring to Webroot Desktop Firewall, that software is no longer supported as it was discontinued years ago. The "No Longer Supported" factor means that it is not updated to keep up with new Windows systems and patches, so will slowly stop working and become worse and worse as it gets older. If this is the software you are referring to, unfortunately the best solution is to uninstall it and use a current, updated firewall instead.

If you want to stay with Webroot, their firewall is included in their Internet Security packages. Otherwise there are numerous free and paid firewalls, all with different features, problems, good sides and bad sides. Examples include Comodo, Zone Alarm, and Sunbelt.

I keep receiving the message that Webroot Desktop firewall 5.8 has stopped working. It happens everytime I am on the computer.

The Webroot Desktop Firewall was discontinued several years ago and has not been updated to work on current operating systems or OS patches. Unfortunately, the best way to resolve this issue is to uninstall the Webroot Destop Firewall and replace it with any currently-supported firewall. If you want to stay with Webroot, their Internet Security packages include firewalls. Other firewalls are available at various prices or free, and as always, no firewall is perfect in operation or convenience, so find the one that you trust best and works best for your needs.

Most of the time when i am asked to give permission to a program or app of some sort and i answer it crashes soon after it doesn't happen all the time and it is getting worse slowly

Take my advice and uninstall Webroot and if you want to use a firewall then use a free one (ZoneAlarm etc). Many people have problems with Webroot

Webroot Firewall Stops working (Windows Vista)

Hi there!

Try re-installing the software. Also, there maybe registry or windows related problems but there's a solution to that: run TUNEUP UTILITIES and run a full system check on your computer.

Also, make sure your activation key or registration has not expired.

Hope this helps
