I'm deploying Webroot to a new client. We're doing a silent install for now but they don't want the Webroot Filtering Extension. As I understand it, the Webroot Filtering Extension is deployed alongside of the agents. I would like to know if there is a policy setting that I can enable that will keep the extension from deploying? I've tried turning off the Web Threat Shield and disable a few settings with the Identity Shield, but this does not keep the extension from deploying. If not, I'll just keep my original settings and we'll have to manually disable though I was hoping not to do that with 100+ computers. Thanks!
Hi I'm Davide and i have question: I have configured some endpoints with a 3-hour polling interval, but in console I see that the column "last seen" are updated more often,about every 20/30 minutes. I tried 1 day as interval, with same result. I guess it's normal but in this case does the polling interval indicate the maximum connection time? Or endpoint connects randomly within the polling interval configured? Thank you
Sorry if this has been covered, I did search but didn't find it. I have a number of 2016 servers but they are all showing as server 2012 in the portal. I should mention that these servers were 2012 but they were wiped (or a new VM created) and reloaded with 2016 but kept the same name. Because they were wiped Webroot was reloaded once they were up and running, the old server is showing in the deactivated group as you would expect. It doesn't appear to be causing any problems as far as I can tell, mostly just to my OCD!
Where can I go to verify whether or not Webroot detects the current Wannacry malware? I've tried checking the kb and blog but no info. You'd think with this being a global news story, Webroot would have published something specifically on this by now?
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.
NoScrypts.exe is a utility provided by Webroot to disable a number of script types in Windows to help prevent fileless rootkits and other types of infections. As of this morning, Webroot is quarantining that utility. MD5: AD422EF5AF8763975FEEADF0F0701DEA I'll also be submitting a ticket.
After upgrading to Windows 10, Webroot has begun blocking my first keystroke. It's really annoying for passwords because you can't tell you are missing a letter. It also seems to prevent a link within an email from launching an external instance of a site contained in the email. How do I turn that feature off? Thank you.
Trying to run Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 which has run on Windows 10 in the past. Now I receive an error message, "Adobe Premiere Pro could not find any capable video play modules. Please update your video display drivers and start again." I have updated my video card drivers and followed recommendations from other Forums but still cannot get the program to run. One of the suggestions I read mentioned blocks by security software. My question is, does Webroot block the running of Adobe Premiere Pro CS6?
How can I get agent commands to execute? Webroot has quarantined a critical application for one of my users. I've gone in and restored it from quarantine but the application still won't run and it appears that Webroot is continuing to interfere with it. I have added an Override and also tried to go into Agent Commands, Idnentity Shield and Allow the application. My user is calling me evern 2 minutes demanding that I either make it work or take Webroot off their machine. I've tried to use Agent Commands to Consider all items good, remove password protection (so I can try to disable their client) but nothing seems to be working. When I view commands selected for endpoint I see a series of commenads lined up that say Not yet received. Our policy sets polling interval to 15 minutes. I have asked the user to refresh configuraiton multiple times and reboot. Nothing seems to work. How can I get these commands to exe

I cannot uninstall webroot from a customer's computer using add/remove programs. I tried "C:Program Files (x86)WebrootWRSA.exe" –uninstall" and it says "are you sure you want to uninstall" and I say yes, then it says it's being managed by the central console and I have to make the changes there. BUT, the machine doesnt' show anywhere in the console either. I need to get this off the customer's computer so that I can reinstall using a different procedure and get it to show in the management console. Help! ~Matt
I need to embed a group association into the wsasme.msi file before providing the installer to a client. I've reviewed the documentation and tried to use Orca.exe to do so, and in my tests the endpoint is always added to the Default Group. I've selected the group I want to specify, then from the Actions menu chose 'Deploy endpoints to this group' in order to obtain the group code. I then tried setting the CMDLINE property in the .msi file to this: "SME,quiet,Group=-nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn" /qn /l*v %windir%wsa_install_log.txt Trying to make this work, I've tried making the word group lower-case. I've tried removing everything after the quote marks (at the end of the Group code). I've tried using the Group name instead of number. No matter what I try, my test endpoint is always added to the Default Group. My test endpoint is a VM, and after each failed attempt, I am uninstalling WR, deactivating the endpoint in the WR portal, renaming the end
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.
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
The latest Webroot release 184.108.40.206 with its updated wrkrn.sys file seems to have caused some BSOD's with 2008r2 after our systems rebooted last night. I was able to delete the file from a repair command prompt and then reboot into normal operating mode. I have a ticket in with Webroot support about this issue, but I thought my issue should be shared. Update: I have talked with an MSP using Webroot who has had the same problem today. They also report that if you reboot your machine again after Webroot has a chance to reinstall the wrkrn.sys file it will start throwing up BSOD messages again.
