Windows always has built-in security called Windows Defender on your computer. If the computer is saying that your security is not enabled, please let me know and I can help you turn it on.

You can download Malwarebytes as well which works with Windows Defender so that you do not have to buy Webroot again. The link to Malwarebytes is here: https://www.malwarebytes.com/mwb-download/thankyou/

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
