Hi all, I may have overlooked somethign basic.... I want to email a list of hosts protected by Webroot to my client (he doesn't want to log into the console). Is it possible to generate a report of hosts with webroot installed, and export it to pdf of csv or somethign similar? I had a look in the reports tab but couldn't find a way of doing it. Cheers, Simon
Folks,Lost my last post...your website does not lke disagreeable comments maybe. At any rate, I had to disable the two services cited in my topic, else you get a tremendous slow down at the login screen and reaching the desktop can increase your login time to desktop anywhere from 5 times to 10 times longer.I am leaving them disabled for the time being until this issue is resolved within Webroot. I am still keeping the main WRSV running as my main protection. That service does not cause any issues.My system is a dual Xeon with 384GB of DDR4 RAM and two Seagate Enterprise SSDs. Graphics card is a Nvidia Quadro P1000.Chris

We have users who randomly are unable to save files like Word, Excel or other to network shares, typically over a VPN connection. When doing so they get "file is currently in use try again later" messages. It doesn't happen all of the time, however you can typically recreate the issue by opening and saving a file a few different times. In our troubleshooting we found that removing Webroot SecureAnywhere off of the client machine resolved the issue. Once re reinstalled the client we had saving problems again. We also isolated the server with the file shares by removing any A/V that was installed with no net effect. Any ideas what might be causing this on on the client side? Like I mentioned, only happens over the VPN, I do not have the same problems when opening and saving files on the local network so there must be something the Webroot client is doing in the communication stream to create the problem.
Yesterday I had noticed that the Webroot Filtering Extension was saying that it could be updated so I clicked it. I was unsure if it did anything because it didn’t indicate that anything happened. Afterwards, however, I noticed that no matter what site I was on the icon in the top-right corner of the screen would be the normal logo with a red dot in the bottom-left corner of it. No green check mark, no yellow exclamation point. In addition on every search engine, search results do not have an approval/warning next to them. The assumption is that the extension is no longer working and I don’t know why. After that, the next time I opened Firefox the extension logo is invisible, but still says “Webroot Filtering Extension” when mousing over it. Clicking it opens nothing. Next, I would disable and re-enable the extension but that would just bring me to a page telling me to verify my keycode, which I did (I can’t remember if the account is under our mom’s email or mine, but my brother and

Webroot recently started showing me a popup at start up of Windows 10 containing the words: “Sign up for MyAccount.” I am already signed up! Yet this braindead program keeps showing me the popup. I am getting tired of clicking the little X. There should be some built-in interaction between the popup and the fact that I am already “signed up.” I have tried just about every suggestion on the internet. Apparently Webroot has gone out of their way to circumvent the normal Windows popup override system. HELP!
Giving McAfee and other cancerous anti-virus a run for its money in terms of ANNOYING and OBNOXIOUSWho thought allow Webroot SecureAnywhere to send popups to their customers was a good idea? This is beyond annoying. I have never seen these sort of annoying popups until now this month and I’ve been subscribed since 2016. Stop asking us to sign up for “My Account” and stop asking us to accept your terms of service. How many times do I have to close these damn popups before I chargeback my credit card?
Hi, when creating an excel .xlsx file from our own software report system I get an error as follows and no file can be created: 'Failed - Virus scan failed' Any help would be most appreciated on how to fix this.

Hi, I'm writing some powershell scripts which will run on on our clients servers, these servers run Webroot AV and I need to be able to make API queries to Webroot relevant to that particular client from the script. To do this, I need to be able to correctly identify the client via obtaining either the webroot keycode, or GSM Site Id programatically from the server where the script is running. Are these values stored somewhere that can be read by PowerShell? Thanks
Hi. I can’t use cryptomining software with Webroot running on my computer. I have whitelisted these apps but I believe WSA just kills any applications that use 100% (or near 100%) of processor for several minutes. It’s possible to override this feature? I love WSA and don’t want remove it. Thanks!
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?
So when I log in to Webroot to activate my subscription, I can do it and get logged in, but then Webroot logs me out and takes me right back to the log in screen (this occurs in less than a second) and webroot security isn’t activated on my computer yet.
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
So, I started up my computer like usual and opened google chrome. Except I couldn’t? It was detected as unsafe by both windows firewall and webroot, webroot quickly gave a notification to uninstall the program. I believe it was along the lines of Win- something? I believe 32 and gave the path file of the apparent malware file. I have no downloaded anything on my computer besides discord, steam, and some minecraft files. And google chrome itself. I downloaded malwarebytes for a scan, and it found nothing, and did an optimize with webroot and found nothing. I’ve uninstalled Google Chrome as I couldn’t even open the app anymore. I have no idea what happened. Any help?
