Webroot cpu usage increases dramatically when playing Deathloop
I noticed that when playing Deathloop (via Steam), the CPU usage of webroot goes up to 25% and fluctuates between that number and 10% constantly.I tried adding the deathloop.exe to the ignore file in the PC security options, but it doesn’t let me (It’s almost ½ gig in size).Any solutions?Thanks.
Removal of Web Threat Shield from Edge
I’ve tried again and again to remove the Web Threat Shield after uninstalling Webroot. I cannot get the extenion to shut off or uninstall. I cannot even delete the files as they are locked by the system. This is my home computer, and I can’t remove this! How can you make software that is this invasive that I can’t remove it?!
I purchased one Dell laptop from Best Buy, which allows me to use Webroot AV for free for 6 months. Why I have no way to install the software in my laptop permanently? I can only be using the Webroot tool every time when I open the webpage and then it pop-outs. Next time I have to repeat the same procedure when I want it. Please let me know why and the way to solve this issue.Appreciate your kindly assistance.Best regards,Frank Song
Optimizer program keeps running and wont quit putting message blocks on my computer
The Optimizer program runs all the time and leaves many message blocks on my computer that have to be deleted, saying the program is being run and will finish shortly but it never does. I cannot get it to stop this even though I removed Webroot from my computer and reinstalled it. I am using Windows 10 and it is driving me crazy.
Anyone get e-mail from Sophoss stating they received your "online" payment for $399.99
I received an e-mail to a rarely used account from Sophoss with an embedded image of an invoice stating they received my “online” payment along with a phone number. I called they claimed they received payment by check, het nothing showed in my accounts supposedly from for antivirus subscription? I also rec'd an email from myself stating my WebRoot subscription renewal will be $374.00 and had Geek Squad logo, etc. When I called BB GS they had no knowledge of what I was talking about. I presumed the GS e-mail was a scam as it did not have my new key code. WebRoot CS suggested I contact BB GS specifically for WedRoot support. Given they did not ask for any account or credit card info. and nothing has hit my accounts or credit cards, I cannot take any more action. Appreciate any feedback.
I have another account, (Snip) Ever since y’all included Carbonite, I have had nothing but issues with my passwords and my dashboard. NOW I am LOCKED out of my Webroot and can’t get in there. It even changed my password to the community board. I have tried the “Forgot Password” a few times and now it doesn’t even respond, probably thinking I’m someone else trying to hack into my account. How can I fix this PLEASE? (Snip) Removed private email. Please do not post private information on an open forum. PTD
Webroot App Login Fail Error
Even though I have an account with this e-mail and it works fine on the laptop, and it's 1 year 3 devices the app won't let me in it shows this. I've tried everything I could find. I even tried to contact by e-mail for help and still haven't heard back. If this can't be fixed I'm returning it.

Will my new subscription activate automatically when the old one expires?
Hi folks,I’m a new user here in the Forum and this is my first post / request for help.I’ve just purchased a renewal for my current Webroot subscription via the Webroot’s website, as I didn’t have auto-renewal option on. My current subscription will expire in 23 days (begin of august). I’m a Windows user (in case it matters). The key-code for my renewed subscription is the same as the one for my current subscription which is about to expire.With this in mind:. Will my current subscription automatically renew for another year and activate itself now that I’ve purchased a 1-year extension? . If the answer to the previous questions is yes, will the automatic renewal happen on the last day of the current subscription?. If the answer to . is no - no automatic renewal of the subscription - do I have to manually activate the renewal by logging into my account via the Webroot users account site ? Could use some guidance.Thanks in advance.Miguel
Renewing Webroot, I am told the fee is $39. Nowhere on the checkout page does it say this is USD. I am in Australia, so my card gets charged $59. To me this means one of two things. It’s either deceptive practice, as displaying the actual amount in the currency of the user would be a higher amount, which the company seemingly wants to avoid despite being the honest thing to do. Or, at the very least, it’s simply disrespectful. Is Webroot intended only for U.S. customers? If not, why not have the courtesy to display the amount in the user’s currency (as many respectful businesses do), or at least have the courtesy to state the currency of the displayed fee. Or do they think the whole world revolves around the U.S., and feel no need to think otherwise? I previously contacted support about this issue, and received a canned and completely inadequate response, so just to make things worse, the claims of good customer service are apparently empty claims.
How do I know whether my version of webroot comes with the system optimizer?
All the information I’m finding online is telling me how to use the system optimizer, but I can’t find it in my program anywhere. I figure that’s probably because the version I bought doesn’t come with that feature, but I’m not sure and I don’t know how to check. Apparently it just disappeared for some people, too, which just makes me more confused 😅 I have version 220.127.116.11, and the line at the top of the window says CE 22.3, but I have no idea what either of those things mean or if they’re even relevant.Help?
