Question about Webroot AntiVirus with AntiSpyware & Firewall: Windows

1 Answer

Webroot doesn't turn on for about 5 minutes when booting up.

Hi, Ever since I upgraded my Webroot with the 6.0.2 giving me both AntiVirus and Anti Spyware, windows security window pops up and says "your antiVirus is turned off. This happens every single time I boot up my computer or restart it. It takes over 5 minutes before coming back on by itself leaving my computer at risk. I can't get it to come on any faster than that. Before I upgraded I never had this problem. What's the solution? Thanks.

Kevin

The trail period for your Webroot spy sweeper had expired, so you have to buy the programme.

Alternatively your can use free version Malware or Anti-Spyware programs like Malwarebytes Anti-Malware or SUPERAntiSpyware which indeed very good software in detecting & removing Spyware or Malware from your PC/Laptop.

Hope it helps.

Can you confirm which software you are using, is this the home-user anti-virus/anti-spyware software or the corporate Desktop Web Proxy (DWP) web-filtering service?
Many Thanks, D Tribe
