Why after installing webroot on my hp pavilion with windows 7 I can not connect to Internet it says " unable to connect to proxy server" ?


The anti-virus has set up a firewall which has disabled your internet access. Go into your Webroot console and go to settings and firewall and set it to make an exception for incoming network connections.

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 just purchased Spysweeper last week. It was working fine, and now it sits in "loading" mode without fully loading. I also had Microsoft Security Essentials (free) running, so uninstalled it...


Thank you, and I hope this helps...

There was a compatibility problem that existed between Webroot's Spy Sweeper program and Microsoft's Vista operating system. The issue occurred after an update Microsoft automatically delivered to Vista machines using its automatic windows updating function on January 8, 2008. The bug was fixed on February 12th, 2008. If you have automatic updates set on your Vista machine, the bug will have been corrected by now automatically.
Other issues may be: Check for firewall issues if you still have problems. Temporarily switch the firewall off and see if performance improves. Add exemptions to your firewall if you find it's the cause. SpySweeper.exe, SpySweeperUI.exe, ssu.exe and WrConsumerService.exe should be added and allowed to access the internet.

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.

How do i know if webroot firewall is keeping me from using skype


Open the WebRoot "control panel".
Enable the "firewall-logging" at its highest level.
View and then clear the old "firewall-log".
Then, try to use Skype.
Again, view the current "firewall-log".
Any entries in the log indicate that the firewall has blocked something, namely the Skype TCP/IP traffic.

Try to access an anti virus online scanner then try to access windows update if you are unable to access these sites you have Win32.Worm.Downadup.Gen. It prevents any access to any anti virus software and windows updates it also turns off any installed anti virus updates. Removal is actually really simple just go here
