The Webroot Filtering Extension is crashing tabs in Firefox 80.0.1; however, I can’t remove/uninstall the add-on even if I uninstall Webroot completely. I can’t remove it in the new Edge browser either. Also, how can I stop Webroot from managing Firefox and other browsers after I uninstall it from my system?

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
The reason I chose Webroot over other anti-virus software is because supposedly, it’s not a resource hog. The past couple of days my hard drive is spinning non-stop and the culprit appears to be Webroot. I was not able to kill the Webroot processes or uninstall the software as Windows is telling me I don’t have Administrator’s privilege although I had no issue uninstalling other software. I’m running Windows 10. When I opened the Webroot console, it freezes whenever I tried to make any change to the setting.
I was on the American Chemical Society website and a tab opened up by itself. I must have done something when I went to the tab because as soon as I did, something was downloaded to my computer and it went too fast for me to be able to see what it was or where it ended up. I searched the entire hard drive manually for everything that had a “date modified” of today around the time it happened. Nothing was suspicious except for a file that I “did not have permission to access,” but the file was empty and created in 2019. It said it was modified around the time the incident occurred. I couldn’t delete the file either because it said something in the file was open. I checked the task manager and it said nothing was open. Webroot did a scan and found nothing. What do I need to do?
I am a web developer, 25 years in the industry. Webroot is giving off cautions on several of my sites today via Chrome or Firefox. Obviously, this is concerning for me. However, there is no further information other than, "this site may contain content that could affect your online security."I need to know *what* is causing this. When I looked under Webroot docs, it says, "These are generally benign sites, but have exhibited some characteristics that suggest security risk."My question is - what are the possible flags that suggested a security risk? As a developer, I need to know what third party scripts are setting off warnings in order to make my sites safe.I would love if the docs could be updated with a list. But more urgently, if someone could give me a collection of the flags that can set off the caution warning, that would be brilliant. All of these sites are new builds. I need to pinpoint the script that is not secure. Thanks in advance!
I found that it doesn’t have any web monitoring features to block adult contents, category wise like Sophos home or Cold Turkey. But it is good for my aging pc. I am looking for security which doesn’t slow my already slow pc with porn blocking capability. Thanks. Please don’t recommend host file editing, google safe search, etc. They can be easily bypass. I want Cold Turkey like features in security software.
Hey so my Intel Bluetooth (ibtsiva) is located in system 32 instead of program files I looked that up and apparently it's a virus in disguise. I want to make sure that this is not true, and if it is what do I do? Webroot has not detected it as a virus, but I'm asking here just to be safe. Thank you.
I cannot download any kind of data anymore. every time i try it, i get a Windows error message “ error- error while scanning for virus” but the data i want to download is safe. I checked if it has something to do with google chrome but that does not seem to be the case. Now i think the problem might bei Webroot. Can you tell me what i should to next?
Hello,I’ve had this long running problem (for about 2 years) where a “save as” dialog box appears on my laptop after I log back in after it’s been asleep asking me to save a file of unknown type (the box only gives me the option to save it as an “all files” type). I figure it’s some sort of virus, but I don’t know what it’s trying to accomplish. I never save the file and always choose “cancel,” but I don’t know what will make it stop and whether my laptop is compromised in any way. To be sure, the dialog box appears despite not having chosen to download anything either before or after my laptop went to sleep - it appears randomly. I’ve included an image below of the “save as” dialog box in case it helps. Also, I’m using a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro running on Windows 10 with an active Webroot Internet Security Plus subscription which I’ve had for about 4 years. Any help as to how to resolve this problem would be much appreciated, thank you!
Hello I was checking my Windows 10 home pc using the Sysinternal Autoruns64.exe which check for registry items and found that the following registry key exist HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\WRCore but the file C:\Program Files\Webroot\Core\WRCore.x64.sys is missing ? What can cause this behavior ? I have uninstall and reinstalled webroot but to no avail? It still says that WRCore.x64.sys is missing I then check the folder C:\Program Files\Webroot and found that there is no sub folder C:\Program Files\Webroot\Core Could this registry key be caused by an old installation of Webroot?
On July 16 I sent a message detailing how webroot was not deleting files properly and had eliminated my ability to have windows do the job. No response. Sent 2nd message on July 17th. No response. Sent third message and tried to call support. waited on support line for 17 minutes, no response. Is there some way I can shut off this non-functioning “feature”? And has anyone figured out how to get a response from Webroot?
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?
Just looking to confirm what if any email attached PDF files scanning protection Webroot has for a Windows 10 OS PC? Noting receiving more and more such emails with PDF attachments and not opening them out of concern. What level of scan protection is provided using Webroot currently as not seeing current conversations for years on this topic?
As the title says, I tried to uninstall Webroot Security Anywhere Opened up windows program for uninstalling programs, searched up webroot, found it, and attempted to uninstall. For about 5 hours, it’s been stuck uninstalling with the cursor having the little blue circle next to it. About 3.5 hours in, my screen went black with the cursor still around and occasionally joined by the blue spinning circle. It is still like this right now. Anyway i can fix it? Is it safe to shut down? I need something I can do, as I don’t really like the idea of taking my computer with my personal data on it, including important financial information, to a specialist during a pandemic. Thanks Edit: I cannot do anything on my computer, as nothing is responsive (or at least responsively visible) with the black screen up. CTRL + ALT+ DELETE and CTRl + SHIFT + ESC do nothing +note Apparently, I am supposed to receive a selection of characters (to indicate I’m not a bot) after selecting Webroot to uninst
My experience is this I bought a new laptop and installed webroot on my new laptop about 2 weeks ago with a 14 day trial. Now the 14 day trial changed to over 800 days within the week. I find this really bizarre and wonder if webroot servers are ok or something going on? This happened before when I bought a key from the webroot website several years ago for my desktop and the days were fluctuating and then returning to normal it was weird and I got help from customer support and they say oh looks like you got free days enjoy. Really?? Recently I been trying to find a good answer for my question. I reached out for support for my free trial but I get a not so interested answer. Thank you for contacting Webroot. We are always more than happy to help! Our records show that although the trials are normally 14 days, you did get a long trial period. Should you need anything in the future, please do not hesitate to call or e-mail us. Best regards, Webroot Support Team
