Webroot Group policy deployment struggles (Via CW Command)...
Hi guys, hoping someone can help.I have done a search but the only guide I could find in here was this, which doesn't really cover my issue: How to install using GPO | Webroot CommunityI am currently setting up our client base with webroot endpoint protection via ConnectWise Command - has anyone else done this also? Steps I am taking as follows, but the long and short of it is that the agent (And webroot by proxy) is not installing:Download the desktop install agent and create a GP that should install the software package. I save the install file in a shared location which for the sake of troubleshooting, I have made available to EVERYONE I am assigning the package via a UNC path so that it is accessible where they are on the network I am creating a security group and adding all domain computers to the group I add this group to the group policy and give them permissions In the policy I configure wait time to 120 seconds I configure it to wait for the network before logging in as wellN
I shut down webroot now windows is telling me it is snoozed even though it is not
So today I shut down webroot (so i could get higher fps in roblox) and then when i was done, I turned off my computer and turned it back on later. Windows defender said webroot is on snooze, i clicked turn on and because I do not know the pin (I am not the admin) I didn’t type it in and webroot opened anyway, though windows still says it is snoozed, don’t want my dad to get on the computer and have to explain to him “I turned off the antivirus so I can get higher fps in games” is there anyway I could get rid of this on windows defender without using the pin?

Several games crashing with antivirus enabled displaying Clock Watchdog Timeout
Black Mesa, Stellaris, and a few other Paradox games will crash and freeze then a blue screen then Clock Watchdog Timeout will display. It does not do this for every game as I was able to play Grand Theft Auto 5 without issue. I checked my drivers, bios, and the temperature of my gpu and cpu, both stable in all games. When I turned off the antivirus, I was about to play all the games mention without issue for hours.
Why isn't Webroot fixing the problem with Backup & Sync Dashboard crashing
The issue of the backup/sync function not working correctly on Windows 10 is addressed in several posts.I have been having this issue for at least 3 years on multiple computers. I am occasionally able to get it to work. Going thru the Support system multiple times has been fruitless and frustrating. This is an issue that is not a priority for Webroot. It was suggested to me that I use Carbonite. Why are they advertising the backup/sync on the sales page when it doesn’t consistently work? They need to fix this issue or remove backup/sync from the product. This used to be a great feature that was a major part of my decision to use Webroot. I am now considering a different product. I have been a loyal Webroot user for several years and kept hoping they would fix the issue. I get it that their main product is security. But their lack of dealing with a persistent problem in a part of the product package causes me to question the integrity of the whole product.
Renaming C:program file
Yesterday (3/7/2022) I started to get C:\Program” warning messages on my personal computer. I see some replies in the Related topics. The replies are several years old. It’s difficult for me to determine if this is an issue that I should address and fix. Or just ignore. Can someone please help? Here is what I’m seeing on my personal computer: File Name Warning: There is a file or folder on your computer called “C:\Program” which could cause certain applications to not run correctly. Renaming it to “C:\Program1” would solve this problem. Would you like to rename it now? I clicked on the Rename button. After I click on the Rename button, I get the message “File Access Denied - You’ll need to provide administrator permission to rename this file”. I clicked on the Continue button After I click on the Continue button, I get the message “This action can’t be completed because the file is open in Webroot SecureAnywhere”. Clicking on the Try Again button doesn

ShellExtension.dll shortcut created by Webroot
When I cold boot my Win 10 system, I note a new desktop shortcut for “Webroot” - whose link is to open a file “C:\Programs\ShellExtension.dll. Every time - despite my deleting the shortcut before shutting down. What’s worse, as part of the bootup process, I always get a pop up box “ How do you want to open this file? Internet Shortcut ShellExtension.dll .”How do I prevent the shortcut creation and the bootup message? Many thanks. Peter
Security for home, freelance and little business
Hello,First of all, I apologize in advance for my English.I am writing you to ask a question that seems very important to me.We often hear about companies and hospitals (for example) that have been hacked, or whose data is subject to ransonware.Is it possible to have information or maybe even a list of the security solutions that were used each time?For example, I would like to know whether Webroot has been able to protect its customers better than others?And which security solutions have failed the most?Some will answer that each case is unique and that everything depends on the configuration and the chosen parameters, but I would like to disregard this fact and just consider the automatic and pro-active effectiveness of the abovementioned security software.
