I have a 2 year subscription to Webroot SecureAnywhere. I don't know how this happened. I was just watching a video on Youtube and then this thought popped in my head. I know, it doesn't make sense, but when I get a thought like this, I become VERY paranoid about it. So I would like some real answers, not troll answers. Is it possible for your anti-virus (free and paid) to create an error in anyway when backing up files on an external hard drive? Even if the data transfer is completed and all appears to be OK, is it possible when I try to transfer the files from 1 laptop that has Webroot SecureAnywhere installed on it to another laptop that doesn't have Webroot SecureAnywhere installed on it, the laptop that doesn't have Webroot SecureAnywhere installed on it won't recognize the external hard drive or something and my files will be lost? Again, I know this makes ZERO sense, but I'm kind of a paranoid person. I'd rather ask this ridiculous question and get answers from people who have experience in the world on computers vs being paranoid about this.
