Sorry you are seeing the pop-up. Let me ping one of our Community Managers to see if he can help you out with this problem.
I just think its utterly ridiculous and fly's in the face of common sense to do anything on my end.
There should be no ads at all what so ever. The problem now is Webroot thinks serving ads to paying customers is justified and I'm sure they felt it is better to loose some customers to gain sales and simply don't care. Mark my words this type of behavior will soon be the beginning of the end of what used to be a good antivirus.
Gone are the days of Customer first.
@PVaddi was able to provide an update about this issue here and wanted to share.
Please keep me updated, I want to make sure this gets resolved for you.
Webroot employees will be back in the main office about 10 am tomorrow morning. They will see your posts. I'm only a volunteer here on the forum so I can't see the back side of Webroot. Have you tried to do a Clean Uninstall / Reinstall of WSA? That may help with the pop-up. As for the advertisement on the GUI, you will have to get the answer from the Webroot employee.
To do a clean Uninstall / Reinstall:
Please follow the steps closely!
What is wrong with you people anyway,
I purchased Webroot to prevent crap like this and instead you guys start serving ADS in a paid product??????????????????????????????????????????/
But I would highly recommend to Webroot that such a dialog should have a dismiss button along with a check box that says do not repeat this alert again. The "Learn More" as the biggest (and in this case, what looks to be the only button) is a bit over the head advertising, so I can understand the frustration this would cause some.
I have not seen this issue on either Mac or Windows, but I can understand your frustration. Hopefully that will come up with a quick patch and fix.
