Bad Computer Slowdowns When Connected over a VPN
We do lots of work with remote networks that use a VPN for connection. I've noticed that when we do utilize a slower VPN, the PC performance goes to crap. Everything, even the simplist things such as right-clicking a file, or opening an RDP file take extra long, but it almost seems a bit random. If I shut-down WebRoot protection, performance returns. I can only assume WebRoot is trying to route traffic through the VPN, but the fact that there's such a slowdown, just simply because the network connection is poor is a bit concerning for me. Is there any way to tell WebRoot to either delegate to the base network connection, or potentially hold off on much of it's network activity when a VPN app or network connection is established?
From Mcafee EPO to Webroot
Hi Team, I am coming from a McAfee EPo and ESET solution to a webroot solution. I am using the “Management Console - CE 22.4” to setup a range of Windows servers. I have a few questions: 1: Can we set the on access scan to “scan only on write” not read.2: Should we use file/folder exclusions?3: Is there a live scanning monitor to see what is being scanned at any time - this will test what should and what should not be scanned? We also have seen that when we do a remote desktop to a server, the scanner activates and the CPU increases. Thanks Phil
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).
Detailed and customized reports for MSP's
I was looking into the reports and was wondering a couple things: 1. Can we generate non-graph reports? Something with text detailing type of threat discovered, when it was identified and when it was removed? 2. Adding a company logo to the title screen. 3. Modifying the format displayed for current reports. ie: instead of showing 1 report per page possibly show 4 reports per page? Regards, Matt
Internet Explorer Browser is not trusted
Hi: This morning I opened Internet Explorer like I did yesterday and everyday ( I know, that's my first problem, but hey, I need to know what happens when my customers do these things ) and Webroot popped up and said that C:Program Files (x86)Internet ExplorerIEXPLORE.EXE is trying to connect to the Internet and is not trusted. I clicked on Allow Always, but what should I tell my customers when they ask why Webroot does that? Thanks, TimC
Questions on application protection settings
Could use an explanation here. Thanks in advance. I'm trying to determine the best settings for mainly web browsers, but I'm a little confused as to the options and combinations of each . My options are as follows : Protect, Allow or Deny with combinations of 2 of the 3. It seems I can choose 3 different scenarios. I can select [b]Allow/Deny[/b], [b]Protect/Allow or Protect/Deny.[/b] Given these explainations for each below, unless I'm misunderstanding something how would it possible to have have an application both under [b]"Protect"[/b] and [b]"Allow"[/b] at the same time? OR, an application set to [b]"Allow"[/b] and [b]"Deny" [/b]simultaneously? As I stated, I must be misunderstanding the explanations. [b]Protect.[/b] “Protected applications” are secured against information-stealing malware, but also have full access to data on the system. You might want to add financial management software to the category. When yo
Where to buy?
I am testing Webroot and going to buy at least 8 licenses for my clients. However, it looks like that Webroot EU doesn't want to work with such small amount of licenses, so they keep being silent when I requested a quote. While I feel good about Endpoint product, any recommendation where I can buy Webroot business licenses? Can home licenses be used for business, and be managed from GSM?
Webroot installs itself into ".%programfiles%" not "C:Program Files"
I am a long time happy Webroot customer. I download most installers into my C:SysAdminInstallers directory and run them from there, where the installer asks for the installation directory. No problem, I put in C:Program Files. With this Nov. 2018 release of WebRoot, however, things have changed. It overrode my specification and attempted to install itself into the following subdirectory: C:SysAdminInstallers%program files%RllpdptrqVgdPtGk.exe I attempt to put in C:Program Files and the WebRoot installer overrode it with %programfiles% as a subdirectory using requested randomized directory and file name. C:SysAdminInstallers%program files% Yes that is '%' in the file name. I figure I must be missing some basic concept or be infected by a virus. Yes both my machine and user environment variables are set as follows: programfiles =C:Program Files I think the last time I had to set environment variables was sometime in the 1980s with MS-DOS. I say "attempted" because the installation
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

How do I unblock netsh.exe when I have NO internet connection on that computer?
From reading other questions, I see that I'm not the only one who has had this problem. But I don't understand the suggested solutions. How can I "stay online during uninstall and reinstall" if the problem is that I can't GET online? Help! And Webroot, I notice that this problem has been going on for years. Isn't there some way to tell your software not to flag this item?
After deactivating devices the devices will not list inSecurity settings
First let me say I followed the deactivation instructions to the letter and all the devices were deactivated. Deactivation is not my problem. I have 4 devices with webroot installed. A few days ago I was checking my account and found 7 devices listed in Security. Some were duplicates and 1 device was not listed. I first did virus scans with webroot on all 4 devices then checked in my security list for the dates of the latest scahns. Only 1 device was showing the just completed scans. I then deactivated all the devices except the 1 that showed my latest scan. I now have 1 device listed in Security and is correctly showing the device information . After reinstalling webroot on the remaining 3 devices none will appear in my Security list. I did 3 or more scans on the three devices and waited much more than 30 minutes. Actually I've been at it noe for almost two days scanning, uninstalling webroot, scanning again, and nothing except the one device is listed in Security.
