About this book
It seems like everywhere you go on the Internet, there is spam, spyware, and the risk of viruses infecting your computer and ruining your online experience. In businesses alone, according to Nucleus Research Inc., spam costs more than $712 per employee in productivity and computing resources each year. Spyware slows computers, ruins files, and can result in stolen information. According to the same Nucleus Research report, businesses lose more than $70 billion annually because of computer viruses - and the cost continues to rise as every major company moves to a fully digital workplace. Every time you download a computer virus or click on a spam e-mail by accident, you are wasting money, endangering your computer, and risking the loss of personal and business information. This complete, revolutionary book has compiled all of the vital information you need to make sure that you are able to combat the billion dollar risk of incursive software infecting your home and work computers. With How to Stop E-mail Spam, Spyware, and Computer Viruses from Ruining Your Computer, you will learn why there is so much spam in your inbox, how the spammer thinks, and what the goals of spyware and viruses actually are. Then, you will learn how you can start spam-proofing your inbox by never giving away personal information and using secure e-mail clients. You will learn how companies get spyware onto your hard drive and what you can do to block it from appearing. Learn which viruses have caused the most damage and how they can infect your computer. Then, discover which software is most effective at blocking the download and infestation of viruses onto your hard drives. You will learn the value of a good firewall, what it does to stop the ill will of spammers and hackers, and what actions you can take to block the breach of your firewall and your computer's defenses. Learn how to remove spyware from your computer and make sure you are not giving away personal or valuable work information. This guide will also teach you how to lock down your inbox and desktop to keep that software from returning. Find out what to do when you do get a virus and how to return your computer to the state of security it was in beforehand. Most importantly, with the valued input gathered from interviews with computer security and safety experts, you will learn how you became a target for all that spam. Discover what you are doing that makes it so easy for spammers to fill your inbox and how to safeguard your e-mail. Once you have tackled the source of the problems, as outlined in this book, you will have all the tools you need to combat the incursive and destructive effects of spam, spyware, and computer viruses.

    Great product

    0 4/5 Grant - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: SecureAnywhere Internet Security Complete 2015 5 Device 1 Year PC (Software Download) I have been in the IT world for several years, I am not the "IT Professional" that knows it all but here is my 2 cents worth:I was sceptical at first, I have used Norton, McAfee, and a couple others that always worked great, the only real complaint I had was how much they bogged down my system. They tend to take up a lot of computer resources. After installing Webroot SecureAnywhere I was really surprised by just how little resources this program uses and does such a great job at the same time. I have been sold on this product for now, but as in all security software I usually re-asses products once a year to make sure I am still using a highly rated product. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 4, 2014

    Mac users beware

    Webroot is a great product. Ive used it previously on my PCs and since migrating to a MacBook last year I've had very little use for AV software. What caught my eye with this product was all the additional features. While i have almost zero concern for potential viruses I felt it would be worthwhile to have an all-in-one product for password protection, file syncing, browser history/file erasure instead of using multiple applications as i do now. Not to mention that even though viruses, with few exceptions, are unheard of on the Mac OS, 3rd party software exploits are not so the browser extension and AV protection was icing on the cake. Well, come to find out, the Mac version offers none of these features with the exception of the AV scanning and Safari extension.I first wrote it off as poor consumer research thinking i must have missed something glaring. Nope. I re-read the product description on Amazon. Nothing. Looked at their website..had to be there right? Nope... 1/5 Shawn Allison (Newark Delware) - See all my reviews, March 2, 2013

    Slower but Safe

    You have a choice to make when you install internet security software. Some products wrap your laptop in a secure fortress. That's great, as long as you don't mind waiting for your browser to load. Every. time. Some products are faster, but they leave you with some doubt. When will I get the cornficker?For people that want to risk it and go more quickly, it is possible to just buy one anti-virus program and then run the Window firewall. That isn't entirely a bad idea, particularly if you are using a router. If you are on a modem or some kind of dial-up, with no buffer between your computer and the outside world, then you need more. If you are going to use your laptop at an internet cafe, you probably need to err on the safe side, as well.I run CA at work. It is very slow.

    Does the job but you need to use it right

    I have gradually migrated all my PCs to Webroots Internet Security Essentials after much frustration with Norton (have used Norton since 1982)and McAfee and MS Defender. I liked that Webroot found spyware in my archived hard drive files that other programs had scanned and missed. And Webroot pipes up when it blocks something, which others may block without letting you know and then you have a non-responding program with no obvious cause. You do have to install it right for it to work without too many problems however. I also agree Webroot support hasnt been very responsive when I had problems I had to noodle out myself. As for the reviews posted; you can check the tick box so it logs into the backup accont automatically, and you can configure the priority Webroot has over CPU time. The default is "high" and you can set it down. I also have scheduled cleanups, sweeps and backups in the middle of the night so there is no competition. You must use the training feature and then review... 4/5 Richard W. Reeves "Tempus Fugit" (Bay Area, CA) - See all my reviews, January 1, 2010

    Great when it works, crippling when it doesn't...which is most of the time

    I bought Webroot Internet Security to get rid of some extra stubborn adware and viruses that infected my computer via a thumb drive. Well, it worked great to get rid of those issues. Since then (3 weeks) its become almost unbearable to live with and my computer is no slouch: 3.4Ghz dual core processor, 2Gbs of Ram, and a 10,000 rpm hard drive running XP Pro.The Positives:Extremely thorough. Lots of settings. Online backup included free.The Negatives:Takes forever (easily a couple minutes) to load at startup. Likes to freeze at the end of a sweep. When the program freezes, you can't terminate it from the Task Manager and if you try to, you will end up crashing freezing windows every time, which means you have to perform a hard reset. Intolerably intrusive. Every time my computer starts up I get the same messages asking me whether applications I have time and time before approved can connect to the internet.
