I expect my Webroot to scan on schedule or if it missed the schedule run immediately at startup per the schedule I set up. However, it seems to always be scanning or preparing to scan. I've been on my Mac for over two hours now and it has scanned at least twice and now says preparing to scan. This seems very strange. Can you tell me why it always seems to be scanning?
Hello,Out of curiosity I downloaded various Eicar files from here:https://ipinfo.info/html/testvirus.phpI was able to save most of them in a folder, without any reaction from Webroot.If I scan the folder , the are detected as “malicious” , but no reaction when I downloaded them.I have “Scan archived files” and “ Check files for threats when written or modified” selected.Theoretically , these Eicar versions should have been scanned upon download.

I renewed my WiFi Security on January 12, 2022. I downloaded the renewal software several times. The old subscripton expired on February 10, 2022. Now when I try to connect the red connect box just says “renew” and won’t connect. I purchased a Secure Anywhere renewal at the same time and got one keycode for both products. How do I get WiFi Security to accept my new subscription and connect again? Bill P
So what’s the time frame for a permanent fix for the issues between Webroot and Easy Anti-Cheat?I created a support ticket a while back to get this fixed, but after learning you need remote access to my PC in order to fix it, I decided not to continue. I managed to fix it myself by uninstalling Webroot, let the game (Black Desert Online) open up it’s menu and then install Webroot. It’s been working fine until now, where they sent out a patch./Mikael
Today Firefox updated to 97.0 on my windows 10 machine. When I restarted my computer, nothing works in firefox anymore. I can load it once, but I can’t browse to any webpage or even pull up the settings or about Firefox menu. When I close it I cannot open Firefox again.I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. I eventually tried installing the 32-bit version and it worked. I reinstalled the 64-bit version and found that if I close out of Webroot completely it would work normally. It only works if I shut down webroot completely. If I turn off individual shields (or all the shields) it won’t work, but exiting webroot causes firefox to instantly start working again.Webroot gives no indication that it is blocking anything. Any ideas as to why this is happening and how I can fix it?
I got Webroot SecureAnywhere & for the first 2 months it scanned fine and now all of a sudden it says “First Scan Not Complete” and is stuck on “preparing to scan”. I’ve tried uninstalling & reinstalling and doesn’t seem to work. Any suggestions?
I have a small NAS attached to my network. I have it mapped as the Z: drive on the computers on the network. I want to periodically scan the drive with Webroot from one of those computers (I don’t care which one, as long as I can get it to work). That does not seem to be possible right now.When I right-click on the Z: drive in File Explorer and select Scan with Webroot, it only scans the root directory and quits. If I select a folder below the root, it scans that folder but none of its sub-folders.So, it appears that on a mapped network drive Webroot is unable to scan anything more than a single directory at a time. This is a problem/defect that appears to go back at least 8 years. The only other reference I could find on here was a topic that was created 8 years ago describing the same problem. The most recent post in that topic was 6 years ago and the problem still existed then.Has the defect been corrected since then? If so, what do I need to do to persuade Webroot to scan more than
Hello, I have the Android Webroot SecureAnywhere Mobile Complete App (ver. 188.8.131.52428) installed on my Samsung phone. Yesterday, I was helping my parents (83 & 85 years old) setup their new Motorola phones and was trying to download the Webroot SecureAnywhere Mobile Complete App, but couldn't find it in the Google PlayStore. The only Webroot App I found is called Webroot Mobile Security (ver. 6.5.0).1. Is the Webroot SecureAnywhere Mobile Complete App no longer supported?2. Has it been replaced with the Webroot Mobile Security App?3. Does the Webroot SecureAnywhere Mobile Complete App still function? It seems to be running okay on my Samsung Phone? It runs scans and shows the number of days remaining in my subscription okay.4. What is the Webroot Mobile Security App? Does it still run on demand scans of all files and Apps on Android phones?5. It looks like it is only a web browser App that looks at the users browser activity when you use that App (Google Chrome)?6. Does

When a user that has already been synced as a target to SAT uses the registration URL for a training campaign, if they do not use the exact uppercase/lowercase spelling of their email address, it registers them as another target within the SAT portal. Could this be updated to NOT be case-sensitive? This is causing issues for the statistics on training campaigns and on the training campaign reminders.
While i was on a help desk call to quicken, I was told I should have webroot to protect my computer. I could buy a lifetime subscr1ption for $249 plus tax for a total of $266.00.

The billing department told be the charge would be $299.99.After I set up my account with webroot, I saw that 95 pc's were using the same security key. sa5c-ttbb-xxxx-xxxx-67daThe charge was processed through paypal.

My software is set to the default settings where it scans the device daily. The scan report window does not go away. Each day a new scan window is there and these windows stack on top of each other. When I log in remotely the taskbar has a stack of webroot windows that I must close individually every day. This is annoying. Previous research said to remove and reinstall the agent. Tried that. It did not work. Any help out there please?
