    hello, I'm hoping someone can help me...I'm currently connected to my wireless router "Cisco" and every time I connect to the internet my advance sharing settings /public sharing are changed.. to the "on sharing".. I've gone thru the settings each time I log online...and save the settings.. no luck..

    Is there anyway to keep this from happening? thanks

    I don't completely understand what you are trying to change, but that probably doesn't matter.

    Sometimes an anti-spyware program will prevent some changes or else change them back to the original upon shutdown or restart. And, I note that your Webroot is Disabled. It may be Disabled because the program that grabs that info sometimes makes a mistake, or because you disabled it, or because it has lost a battle with some malware.

    I suggest that you first investigate what's happening w.r.t. Webroot in light of my above paragraph. It may be necessary to uninstall it, test, and then reinstall.
