Hello community. I have an hp envy pavilion laptop. Windows Eight. Laptop is 10 years old but ideal condition. Upon trying to install webroot after the download a pop up reads that it won't install due to probable malware and would I like to try installing with a random file name? I click 'ok' (after having already entered the key code to get to that point)., then it asks for the keycode again. I click on ok and the entire screen goes to webroot at the control panel. I don't know what to do from there. Many thanks for any help.
The Scans on my Webroot have been doing something weird the last week and a half. Every four or five days I notice a scan occurred that I did not initiate nor was it a scheduled scan. I also notice that every time it happens the number of scans done is reduced to 2. I’ve already bee in contact with Customer support and uninstalled and reinstalled Webroot like they told me to do and this is still happening. I’m getting kind of paranoid now that some sort of virus is somehow messing with my Webroot. Has anyone else ever had a problem like this, I’m getting worried. I sent a support ticket on July 4th understanding that it’s a holiday and they wouldn’t get to me immediately but it’s been two days since then.
Hello, my webroot updated to the latest version a while ago but I’m seeing an issue with the scans. It will say, “last Scan: 23 hours ago” and “Next Scan: In 23 hours” It keeps doing that and the number of scans done on my computer do not go up. I want to know what the problem with my webroot is. Could someoe please help me. Also I know I can scan it myself but the fact that it doesn’t scan autimatically makes me worried and feel like my Webroot isn’t working properly.
I recently scanned my computer and found that in my google cache folder there was a file that was infected with Win32 LocalInfect. I am not sure when it got there because the last time I scanned everything was fine. I googled it a little bit to see what it does. I still am not completely sure what it does. I am also worried because I had a credit card saved on my google account. I just wanted know if any information that could have been on my google account is at risk.
I am getting this error for webroot I can get it started if I press the F8 key on boot and disable the driver signing but soon as I reboot again I have the same problem. How can I fix it so web root will run with out hitting F8 everytime?
Currently seeing strange remote addresses for some of my active connections ( e.g. 2607:f8b0:4004:832: ……..) and reflects the type (of connection) as TCP6. The application is HxTsr.exe, but have similar remote addresses for both the Winstore app and backgroundtaskhost.exe. That said, for these same applications / connections, I also have recognizable remote addresses ( eg 126.96.36.199:443 ) with the type of connection being TCP4. What is the difference and is there any need to be alarmed or any action that I should take to correct this?Thanks so much !Joseph
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
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.
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.
I received this email today from someone being a Hacker. Here is what the email says. Has anyone heard of this?

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
I am trying to remove Webroot from my pc, however there is no option in the programs list, it keeps telling me to contact my network administrator, this is a personal pc, i’ve tried to remove it in safemode with networking, at this point idk what to do outside of wiping the system
Looking through my “passwords” stored on-computer, I find “.auth-gateway.net” - what is that? Safari has a warning by it for “too easy a password”. I find in my cookies a cookie from the website (my service provider) dot this gateway. It makes me nervous. Does anyone know what this is, and why is it in my machine?
Attempting to install new webroot license for 6 devices on a laptop that has an expired webroot software already on it. The install is coming from a webroot email to install on other devices. So, after clicking the link in the webroot email, selecting download to load webroot, it does not take you to input the key screen. Instead it takes you to a screen that says you already have webrrot and it is expired and you need to renew now with a price to buy another license. I do not want to do this. How do you get around this? Do you have to completely delete the expired version of webroot off the other computer and then attempt the download again? That seems not efficient. There should be a seamless handshake to do this. Can someone help me please? Thank you.
