Hi I am using Google as my default search engine. When searching on previous occasions WebrootSecureAnywhere used to indicate whether a site was safe by a green arrow/green circle at the front of (in most cases) of each result of a completed search. Mine does not now display as previously. Is it a Google or WebrootSecureAnywhere problem ? Any advice/assistance would be appreciated.

I recently switched over to Webroot for my personal machines, and joined this community. While I am a software developer of many years, there's a lot I don't understand about cyber security in general. Here’s something specific…If you already have a rootkit unknowingly installed on your Windows machine, and the rootkit is smart enough to expect and trick Webroot, then the only way Webroot can defeat it, is to boot itself from independent start-up media (USB flash drive), then scan & quarantine/disable the rootkit before your OS can start from the Windows boot drive.But all I was required to do after purchasing, is download and install. It started up, scanned, and detected no issues. But how could Webroot be so sure it's not being tricked or defeated in some way? I could find no "boot-from-start-up-media-and-scan" options for this product.Thanks for your patience. Scott.
Re Win 10 pro 21H1 also using Webroot AV ver 188.8.131.52I can only use save as, save option greyed out using latest version of Adobe Reader DC.I have seen this as a known issue, resolved by using the windows security/manage settings in virus & threat protection (v&tp). However this option is not present - only Webroot is shown in v&tp - ie no windows security protection options.I have also gone into gpedit to check if v&tp is turned off - however it is set to not hidden.I have tried to re-install Adobe Reader, tried to repair it.I can see nothing in Webroot which gives any indication that it is overriding Windows Security.Any suggestions?
I keep getting a message saying that my wifi vpn security login information is wrong, I just purchased a 3 device script from Webroot, can someone help
I’m having the same problem as the prior user with the same question had about a year ago which is:“I keep getting a message saying that my WIFI vpn security login information is wrong, I just purchased a 3 device script from Webroot, can someone help?”My problem is exactly as described in this post from a year ago so I cut and pasted the same info since it describes exactly my fact pattern which isI’m a Current Webroot PC Security (Secure Anywhere) subscriber I purchased the 3 year 5 seat Webroot PC Security about an hour ago But the only difference is that I have a Windows 10 desktop instead of a Windows 10 laptop like the original community member postedI cut and pasted that members info for convenience here “For some reason anytime I try setting up an account for Webroot Wifi Security, I am unable to create an account or I am told that I am entering the wrong username or password. I just purchased a 3 device subscription from the Webroot site on my Windows 10 laptop, which is the f
Experiencing spontaneous disconnect then re-connect to internet. This happens across the board, not apparent tie to any app, program, browser, etc. During course of troubleshooting I uninstalled Webroot then continued to troubleshoot. I discovered what I thought was the source of the problem. Once I took steps to resolve the problem I reinstalled Webroot; and the problem resumed. I then repeated the process, I uninstalled Webroot and the problem was resolved, I re-installed Webroot and the problem returned. Anybody have a similar experience and if so, how did you resolve it?
Webroot and Torguard will not work together at all. Torguard keeps blaming Weboot but I fail to understand why 2 legitimate programs (I have licenses for both) refuse to work together. I just did a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro and loaded Webroot. I then installed Torguard which refused to connect. Disabling Webroot made Torguard work perfectly. I right now have both up but disabled Webroot, connected Torguard the re-enabled Webroot.Is there a solution to this problem? I whitelisted Torguard, but that was no help.It just seems completely screwed up that two security programs which perform 2 different functions won’t work together normally.
I have Webroot installed and turned on … but the web search results title displays are not readable. I have the green check mark but then the title is overlaying the www.”addresses” so in most cases I can not make out (read) either very well … it is like typing 2 lines on top of each other? When I shut off WEBROOT is clears up. I use yahoo as my default engine as it it on the ATT home page … but if switch to google search it seems fine. is there ea setting that can be fix on this? This seem to have started a few weeks back PS: I also use Firefox as my default browser
HiFor some reason about every 25 seconds at the bottom of my screen right side the webroot keep adding the webroot icons in the task bar sometimes going all the way across from right to left. When I put my curser on them they disappear leaving me one icon with no lock on it. It also will show like a scan just finished and found no problems but continues to do that adding another icon. Anyone have any idea why this is happening?
I can’t uncheck “Read only” on any files. Was told it might be Webroot blocking it. Any thoughts?Also I get the “Page not available your it administrator has limited access to some areas of this app” Message.So any steps to fix the read only problem fail….Any help would be appreciated.
I have been using Webroot Secure Anywhere (and its predecessors) for years. I am very careful about the websites I visit and never venture past a Webroot green “Trust” recommendation and even then, always proceed with caution. I examine URLs closely and have not clicked on any embedded email links (or attachments). I update Win 10 & Chrome (“enhanced protection” is enabled) consistently, check device “permissions” and “installed apps” regularly. I don’t use social media . I always buy decent-quality, new Dell laptops. I live in a fairly sprawling condo complex with other law-abiding 55+ citizens. I love making up complex PWs, disabling “remote management” features, and keeping firmware up to date in all my devices. Yes, I’m a very boring person. About three months ago, while on the CBS news website I got a “Windows Support Alert” screen that said “This Computer is Blocked” due to suspicious activity and I must call “Microsoft at 800-...” immediately to unblock. The red

Just noticed Webroot threat shield not working properly AGAIN!! This is so annoying and I never had this problem with other anti-virus programs until I got Webroot. Last time this happened, I was told to do a complete reinstall by someone here which I didn’t feel comfortable doing. Luckily, I contacted Webroot Technical Support directly first and they said there was actually an issue with the Google Search Engine which was causing this and they were aware of it and it did resolve itself as they said it would. Now I have the same problem again - first I had spinning circles, then it appeared to work again, and now nothing appears next to search result entries. I contacted the Technical Support again hoping it was a Google issue again, but they had me run a WSA Log which I did and then they told me to uninstall and reinstall which I don’t want to do. I don’t understand why there is not an easier fix for such a small issue. I have Windows 10 Home, use Google Search Engine, use Firefox
Am attempting to install iTunes 14.7 on a Windows 10 PC but get the error in the description above. Apple says to try a lot of things, and one of them involves looking into my anti-virus software. Has anyone had any issues in this area?Thank You, Bob
I recently got on my computer that uses webroot and noticed that two more processes for it show up in task manager (making 6 in total with the ones that would normally run before). These only started up after a few minutes, I was able to run a scan and do a few other things before they popped up. The processes seem to be for WRSvcHost, so guess I am asking if these should be running and if anyone else has them currently? I checked other posts on here but only saw them mentioned for beta testing a couple months ago. This was also in refrence to the beta for version .75, the version I’m currently running is .62
