When I have purchased other antivirus programs I was always able to see how often the program updated it's definitions or threats. How often does webroot update itself? I cannot find any settings on my program to find out if it does this automatically or for me to set a timetable each day. thank you, Lisa
New Unreal Engine 4 gallery showing off the engine running at 8K resolution has appeared online. The screens look incredible to say the least, you could even say they looks better than real life.

I log into the web portal every morning to take a look at things and see how everything is going. Make sure when new agent versions roll out that all my endpoints update to that version properly. This morning when I logged in I saw that one of my endpoints had updated to Agent Version 18.104.22.168. None of my other endpoints where updated to this new agent version. Now I understand that there are other factors that are involved and that they won't all update instantly, but I was trying to find release notes for this new Agent Version and I have alas come up unsuccessful. Anyone have any idea when these release notes will become available? Has anyone else had their endpoints updated to this new Agent Version?
How to Run WSA alongside Windows Defender on Windows 8, Windows 8.1 Only, not Windows 10!Knowledge Base
This information has been verified as accurate on March 2nd, 2020, by APruneau. Question How do you run WSA alongside Windows Defender on Windows 8, 8.1 as Windows Defender is a Full AV. Answer You have to make a change to the registry so if your not able to do this, please make sure a Windows Expert does the change! "Also Webroot is not in any way responsible or liable if anyone makes changes to the Registry." Windows Defender Tweak if users want to run with WSA on Windows 8, Windows 8.1.Windows 8 and 8.1 detects other AVs in the Action Center and blocks Defender from becoming active. You can create a value of type DWORD named HideActionCenter (under HKLMSoftwareWRData on 32bit or for 64bit HKLMSoftwareWow6432NodeWRData) set to '1' and reboot and it will prevent Webroot from adding into the Action Center to allow Defender to stay active. Note: This registry tweak will not work on Windows 10!
I am new at using the webroot endpoint security. I had a threat detected on one of my endpoints and I was alerted on the webroot management console dashboard. I clicked on the 1 endpoint protect needs attention to view threat. As usual, it gave me information on the threat and the endpoints affected by the threat. On the very right-hand side, there is a brush icon to clean up the threat. I clicked on to manually clear the threat, all it did was run a scan on that endpoint but it did not remove the threat. The threat is quarantined but it keeps alerting me on the dashboard saying 1 endpoint needs protection. I assumed that I had the ability to manually clear threats on endpoints, but I may be wrong. I had used other endpoint protection software in the past that gave me the ability to manually clear threats on endpoints. If I can get some enlightenment on how threats are cleared, whether if its automatic or manual. I will really appreciate the feedback and responses.
When running Webroot on my Mac the WSDaemon consistently uses 100% of the CPU. The fans spin up and the system slows to a crawl even when doing basic tasks like web browsing. If I kill the process or reboot the machine everything is ok for ~15 minutes and then WSDaemon goes back to 100% CPU usage. I’ve attempted uninstalling / reinstalling Webroot and that hasn’t helped. In addition I can’t get the Webroot window or menu bar icon to show up. macOS version: 10.15.4 (19E266)
Hi Everyone I run Secure Anywhere Complete on my HTC One XL android phone. Several times in the last week, the phone has locked (red screen) during a phone call. This cuts off the call. Lost Device Protection is ON, but the phone has been in use by me each time it has locked. I have not changed any settings. I didn't remember my pw at the time, but unlocked it for a while by turning the phone off. I'm concerned that the lock signals are coming from elsewhere. Thanks Newby
I deleted by mistake all log files in WRData folder including its sub-folders (Pkg, Sync, wrUrl). :S From the nature of log files I don't think it should cause troubles but you never know and hence I rather ask. BTW, WSA including Backup&Sync and Password manager works fine. How it could happen, easily ... I created a custom rule in CCleaner and forgot to exclude WRData folder. :@ Thanks for your thoughts.
I have recently taken over management of a few PC's from a previous service provider. Apparently they had a Webroot SecureAnywhere account and installed it on all of these machines. We no longer have access to that account or those licenses but we're unable to uninstall/remove Webroot. I've followed every guide I can find and NOTHING will uninstall it. Even when it said it's successfully removed, after a reboot it's all back and running again. When I try WRSA.exe -uninstall, I get "SecureAnywhere is currently managed by the Web Console and all changes need to be applied centrally" ... of course I don't have access to the Web Console. How do I just remove the software... that's all I want to do. The WRUpgradeTool said it successfully uninstalled everything, but of course, it did not. Thanks!
Nagging problem where Chrome won’t load at all until we do the followingshutdown protection launch chrome reboot / enable protectionNow Chrome works fine, this is a great bandaid but I’d appreciate an understanding of whats going on and a more permanant solution.
SUMo shows that a new version of Webroot SecureAnywhere is available - v22.214.171.124. The Webroot page concurs, saying they use a gradual roll-out for updating. [url=http://answers.webroot.com/Webroot/ukp.aspx?pid=10&app=vw&vw=1&login=1&json=1&solutionid=1098]http://answers.webroot.com/Webroot/ukp.aspx?pid=10&app=vw&vw=1&login=1&json=1&solutionid=1098[/url] Is there a rough ETA for getting the update? Also, in my opinion, having a nonfunction right-click item of "Check for updates" is useless and should be removed. Right now it says that I am at the current version (which I am not, I am at v126.96.36.199). So, not only does it not upgrade me via a pull, but it does not even see the upgrade as needed. If the only way to update is to wait for a phased push, why even have the right-click "Check for updates" item?
