Hey guys this is my first post…

After a Webroot update,  task manager is showing 2 more processes , WRCoreService.x64 and WRSkyClient.x64.I know someone already posted about it but i still don’t have any info on those 2 and what they are for.

Also as a customer who likes lightweight software, watching 2 extra processes from my AV without any info is not the best.I would love to see all those processes (4 in my case) grouped into 1.

Cheers

Hello @haxzion 

 

Yes there are 4 processes now.

 

 

This is all the info that Webroot will tell us about them:

 

Hello,

Starting tomorrow we will update your Consumer Community Beta systems to include a set of new files and processes.

Only systems at Windows 7 or higher will receive the update.

New files will be added in these locations:

C:\ProgramData\WRCore\CoreService

C:\ProgramData\WRCore\SkyClient\DB

C:\Program Files\Webroot\Components

C:\Program Files\Webroot\Core

C:\Windows\System32\drivers (WRCore.x64.sys)

And two new processes will run:

WRCoreService.x64.exe

WRSkyClient.x64.exe

There are no changes to the existing agent installation on your system.

We are interested to learn of any performance or stability issues you encounter after this update.

Thanks,

Brad

Performance wise nothing changed it’s running smooth but 4 processes for a lightweight cloud based AV?

Like I said Webroot will not tell us anymore about these new files and processes. They don’t want the Malware Authors to know any details behind Webroot’s protections! :wink:

Got it.Thanks for the info
