Not using password manager causes red "action required" box
I don't use password managers. Today one of my webroot-protected computers has a red exclamation point in the system notification area, and the webroot app says all is well except "Action Required: New Password Manager". I can't find any way to make it happy (short of signing up for password management, I suppose).
An error has occurred while contacting the LastPass server. Please try again later.
This has been happening since I tried to create the new Last Pass password hijacker, I mean manager. Will this be amended ? The blasted last Pass server, when you DO get on won't process the transfer due to memory issues ? 12.0 GB not good enough ?
FireFox & Password Manager Toolbar Fix?
[user=57051]freydrew[/user] , Will Firefox have the Password Manager toolbar fixed as it has not been working for months. Just wondering since now LasssPass in the Password Mangement is being worked on I was wondering if this was in the Agenda anytime soon? Thank you!
Transfer to LastPass
We have been advised that Webroot Password Manager has moved over to LastPass but are there issues with their website as it has not transferred our Password Manager details. I have registered a new account and the prompt from the Webroot PM did not allow me to log in with our existing details. It has copied details from Chrome but not Internet Explorer. Can anyone help? Also, I'm trying to extract the password information from Webroot but on the Webroot website when I log in, keep showing as "preparing". Hiren

C Cleaner hit again
I downloaded the latest update of Piriform's C Cleaner about an hour ago. Everything looked authentic. No sooner had the download completed than WSA 'zapped' it- apparently it is carrying malware, trojans etc. WSA blocked it, removed it and ra a clean of my PC, then gave me a comforting clean bill of health and a note that it did not appear that any banking etc data had been accessed- I don't do on line banking anyway, but that's not the point. I am impressed with the incredible speed with which WSA acted. As a back up I also ran MalwareBytes afterwrds & that too assured me that all was well. Having now read Google I found a disturbing number of previous incidents where hackers had got into C Cleaner. I wonder how long it will be before Piriform finds out and cleans its own system up? [b]Anyway, folks, I suggest you don't download today's update 12th March 2019[/b] and [b]WELL DONE WSA- WORTH EVERY PENNY.[/b]

Can't Download Files
Hi, I am unable to download files on my laptop and could not find an answer in the forums. I have Webroot on my desktop computer and an older Asus laptop and it operates trouble-free. However, on my new Acer laptop, I am unable to download any files. The download tab indicates "Failed - Virus Scan Failed." This is immediately apparent with small files, such as images. With larger files, such as podcasts, the download appears to progress normally, with the timer counting down: 3 minutes remaining, 2 minutes remaining, 1 minute remaining, etc. until the end at which point the Failed tab pops up. I followed Windows instructions to be certain that the Internet Settings were not hindering this. No other virus or protection programs are active on the computer that I am aware of, including Windows Defender. Can someone please tell me if Webroot is blocking these downloads, and if so, how to correct this. Your help would be greatly appreciated. The inability do download any
Geeksquad from Bestbuy deactivated my subscription without my knowledge
In March 2018, my old computer died and I had to purchase a new one. I went to Bestbuy and purchased a new computer. With the purchase and year support to Geeksquad, came a 6 mo and a 1 year subscription to Webroot. I had informed Geeksquad that I already had a subscription to Webroot that did not expire until September 2018 and I would like to have that one installed on my new computer. Instead of installing my current subscription, someone inactivated it and installed the ones for 6 months and a year. Not knowing this, I was charged the yearly subscription fee in August 8, 2018. Due to what Geeksquad did, I paid for something I didn't have and the Webroot they installed will be up on March 22, 2019. Since I am going to have to renew in March, I would like to request a refund for the one that was inactivated in March of last year and I was charged for in August 2018. Here are the details of the charge: My name is Julia Eschbach, date of charge was August 8, 2018, Ref# [i]~snip~[/i], A

Webroot ratings not working
The Webroot ratings on my Google searches have always worked fine until today. When it was working I would get a green circle informing me that the website I'm about to go to is okay, but now I get a gray circle and when I hover over it I get a "Rating temporarily unavailable...." message. Is there a system-wide Webroot problem or should I be doing something to restore the ratings? Please advise. Thanks. Tom

I have suspicious notifications popping up from "www.mp3juices.cc" I think this began when I was hunting some sound clips for a film project and must have downloaded something sketchy unawares. OOPS. Now I'm getting notifications with scantily clad women and also notes that say "System infected! Click here to clean up!" in various versions. Webroot has done its scan and finds nothing. However, it's obvious there is malware. What can I do? Do I need a different software to find this?
Webroot, let it expire?
My problem: I bought my Webroot Anywhere for 3 devices from Best Buy. They cleaned 1 computer, I purchased a new Laptop computer and they put Webroot Anywhere program on both. I went to Best Buy with my Laptop and discussed my issues with not being able to access my Account Console or my Password manager. My Account when I access it from Webroot is as if I don't have anything being protected. The Tech told me, because of many issues I was having, it would be easier to let my Webroot subscription expire and then purchase a new subscription. The Tech assured me my computers were being protected but that I would not be able to access my console or password manager. Should I do this, and let best Buy do a new Webroot install?
Override Database not Updating
I've noticed an issue where the override database isn't updating on all my endpoints. There doesn't appear to be any relation as to which endpoints don't get updated. It could be an old or new OS. Updating the override database in the console doesn't make the endpoints refresh their Ovr.db files. Due to this, using the override database is almost useless. I have no way to force the Ovr.db file to refresh, except a complete reinstall, and doing that to all my endpoints every time I make a change just isn't an option. Location of Ovr.db file: Older Windows OS: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\WRData\ Newer Windows OS: C:\ProgramData\WRData\ Today is 1/14/2019, so my endpoints should have Ovr.db files dated 1/13/2019 or 1/14/2019. One day behind wouldn't be unusual if they hadn't checked in yet today, maybe longer if the endpoints had been off. However, the endpoints I've checked, have all been on either of those days. Here's some examples from today: Windows
