I have webroot anti-virus and it consistently is being turned off after I get on the internet. Is it likely malware or a virus causing this? Actually, it is the firewall that is being turned off.

Chances are it's a virus or malware. Download an anti-virus program to a disk or to a flash drive. Run it and see if you can find a virus. Here's a link to one of the best anti-virus progams. (In my opinion)

Hope you solve the problem. You might also try Malwarebytes

Won't scan after 30 to 45 minutes.The computer will not complete the scan for virus sweep;the computer freezes.


If you can, I would download MalwareBytes (It's free) update it first, then run it. If it finds problems (usually indicated in red) remove the problems. Reboot and then try your Webroot again. Note that any Anti-Virus program will not work well unless it is regularly updated. this is because new viruses / malware come out with great frequency.

Webroot updates never happen Webroot updates are turned on but nothing happens when I try and manually or auto update


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

I would suspect your computer has a virus or has spyware or malware that is causing this. Restart your computer in Safe Mode and run Webroot and your other security software. If they find nothing then restart your computer and then go online and run this free scan. http://us.trendmicro.com/us/housecall/

Virus problem cannot be turned on. It is always off


Well something must have caused you to install a virus program. I"m guessing you already have a virus. Many virus's can disable virus software. You should try an online scan like Microsoft's http://www.microsoft.com/protect/products/computer/safetyscanner.mspx

If it finds a virus you can download repairs for just that virus from places like www.symantec.com Once you get the virus out your software may work.
Personally I can't image why you would pay for the program you bought. Good things on the internet don't cost money. Go download and install Spybot S&D. It's great for spyware and malware because it puts a list of the bad places in your restricted site zones so there's no way you get spybots and malware from them. Then go download and install anti-virus software from http://www.avg.com

Antivirus suddenly stopped Working


Download Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware, Ad-aware and Spybot, and run them all (one after another, not all at the same time) to see if you're not infected by some spyware.

Also run some anti-virus, like Avira - or even the online Trendmicro housecall (http://housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/) to check for viruses.

And do that if possible disconnected from the internet.

If nothing is picked up by those programs, then you can try a system restore to a point where everything worked. Be sure to backup your data first, since you can loose some data with System Restore.
