On my 64-bit Windows 7 system, if you shutdown protection then relaunch webroot, it does not report to the Action Center that it is running and the little warning flag doesn't disappear until you reboot. I have reported this for several 8.0.4.x builds now.
I see that others are now reporting excessive CPU usage on scans in I have had to disable scheduled scans on one PC since the 8.0.4 releases begain due to this. The high CPU usage continues even after the scan completes.
