[h3]Multiple tech support scam websites posing as WebRoot/Geek Squad [/h3][h3].[/h3] There are multiple fake websites that use the title portion of the HTML to show "www.webroot.com/safe" that was printed on the empty DVD boxes given out at Best Buy to try and trick new Best Buy/Webroot customers that would then use remote access software to access victims computers and charge for non-existent security products using a guest account on PayPal. My friend's son was a victim of this fraud when he purchased a new laptop from Best Buy and was given a free subscription to WebRoot but the box did not contain an installation disk. He must have entered "webroot safe" into the search field instead of the full URL as he is somewhat new to computers and was charged $250.00 to his debit card by scammers impersonating the Webroot/Geeksquad website. I was able to get his money refunded at his bank and recovered the deleted logs from the remote access software the scammers had used. I have made 4

Looking through the updates to the GSM this morning and I noticed that the Primary Browser report has basically no clue what browser is the primary one on my endpoints. All, but two of my endpoints are using IE as their primary browser based on the report. I know this to be incorrect because I set the primary browser to Firefox on almost all my endpoints. There's one that requires IE as the primary, but this is due to a software on it and it's a server that only I use. I even have Firefox installed on it and use it for anything other than that software and it can't be set as the primary due to the software. OS doesn't appear to matter. I've got Windows XP through Windows 10 desktops and Windows Server 2003 through Windows Server 2012 R2 servers. The reporting is reading incorrectly on all these OSs. Apparently there is a bug in the software that is misreading this information from the endpoints. Just thought you might want to fix the issue.
Hi, we have released an update to the Universal Reporter Tool with additional new templates, including listing endpoints and combining Webroot products. More information can be found here https://community.webroot.com/webroot-universal-reporter-130/universal-report-version-1-2-343419 The tool also includes a Unity Power-Shell cmdlet that may help you with your automation, worth a look!
We do lots of work with remote networks that use a VPN for connection. I've noticed that when we do utilize a slower VPN, the PC performance goes to crap. Everything, even the simplist things such as right-clicking a file, or opening an RDP file take extra long, but it almost seems a bit random. If I shut-down WebRoot protection, performance returns. I can only assume WebRoot is trying to route traffic through the VPN, but the fact that there's such a slowdown, just simply because the network connection is poor is a bit concerning for me. Is there any way to tell WebRoot to either delegate to the base network connection, or potentially hold off on much of it's network activity when a VPN app or network connection is established?

I’ve been dealing with fast battery drain since buying this new macbook pro. I spent over $1k on this laptop and could not even leave it unplugged at night because while it slept the battery would drain. Removing chrome seemed to solve this, but I like chrome. Someone suggested installing chrome and removing webroot. I didn’t want to do that, I’ve been a webroot customer since 2007, back when it was PrevX on my system. Finally tired of the problem I tried it. What do you know, worked fine. Still though, I didn’t want to go without webroot. So I changed over to another browser and kept webroot. Battery has held up fine. Lately it’s started getting slow though, so I began digging. Webroot Daemon was eating up my CPU. I have never even seen webroot daemon in my activity monitor before now. I’ve about had it with webroot. I’m tired of constantly having to tweek my preferences around their touchy system. It seems to be getting more & more touchy every year. Any suggestions on something
Hello Webroot friends! I bought Webroot Complete yesterday for 5 devices, want to try it and do some review about mentioned antivirus. My opinions about Webroot are: Positive: [list=1] [*]I was suprised when saw Web Based Control Managment for all your products. You can send commands to other PCs that are protected by Webroot, do a scan, restart etc. It's just amazing addon by Webroot. [*]Was also very satisfied how small impact does it have on PC memory, almost like it does not exist. No impact, very small but powerful. [*]You also get 25GB space on cloud which you can access from anywhere! You can always log in and take some documents which you need, anywhere, anytime. Thats amazing too. [*]Very fast and easy install, you can also randomize letters in install directory which infected machine will not recognize its an antivirus and won't be able to block it. [*]Fast scans and powerful signatures! [/list] Negative: [list=1] [*]At first I had a problem after downloading an Trial ver

I am trying to deploy webroot to 3,000 + macs. It seems it will not install because of the message “System Extension Blocked”. I dont want to have to manually install this on all of these macs. I followed these instructions on creating a deployment shell script. The script will work fine if I have previously installed webroot and allowed the extenstion by manually clicking the allow button. How can I deploy webroot to all the macs without manually click the allow button on every one?
Description In a recent update by Apple, a change was made where extensions that have not been downloaded via the Mac App store will no longer load in the latest version of Safari, version 13. This results in a lack of safety ratings (search annotations) appearing next to search engine results when searches are completed using Safari, version 13. Version 13 of Safari is the internet browser included with macOS 10.15 Catalina. Webroot development is working towards adding the Web Threat Shield extension to the Mac App Store as soon as possible, although no release date has been set. Workaround In macOS 10.14 Mojave and earlier, functionality of the Web Threat Shield is unaffected in both Chrome and FireFox, so please use either of those browsers with the Web Threat Shield as a workaround until our extension is available in the Mac App Store. If you are running macOS 10.15 Catalina, there is no workaround. You will have to download and install the Web Threat Shield extension from the M
Hi, I'm with Webroot, on a Windows 7 Pro SP1 desktop. I don't usually have trouble with win updates. Last night, when installing the April updates, it went to black screen, then to a screen saying updates were at 0% installation process... and stayed stuck there at 0. I had to pull plug, restart to safe mode, where it automatically started rolling back the incomplete updates and 'cleaning up'. After that I was able to reboot normally and seems ok... but I see those April updates are not installed. I'm going to need to install those updates before mid June... have you heard any OTHER reports of this windows update issue effecting people with Webroot, aside from me? I don't have those other 4 programs listed in your thread title, btw. I just have Webroot and windows defender (which I've set to not run automatically since I mainly use WR). Now I'm afraid to try again, but will eventually need to. Thanks for any clues or info- please do keep this thread updated! Omie
Hi all,I’ve ended up here as I’m not quite sure where else to go for dialog. I'm not sure if I'm correct or incorrect in my approach. I'm interested in the greater opinion!Where I work, we have a fairly sensitive IT manager, who on seeing a Webroot Alert will shout 'fire fire fire' and shut everything and everyone down until a full investigation has been undertaken. This gets fairly wearing as every alert generates a lot of work. (Usually to no benefit) He has a particular urgency for Trojan notifications.Now, while I appreciate the sentiment, I can't help be get ever frustrated at this approach. I am under the (correct/incorrect?) impression that an alert from Webroot is a GOOD thing and that nothing has been executed/infected. Although I do agree that a quiet investigation is probably necessary to ensure that an infection hasn't taken hold.So my question/discussion point is this - if Webroot highlights an 'infection', is the detection done at a safe point i.e. pre execution, or

Has the system which, as it was and usually is, been changed in favour of the Green W (top right corner icon) followed by or as visible by an assurance green tick and the legend that it is safe to proceed. My normal Green ticks against items shown as drop down options via my Browser (Chrome) have been down for 4 days now ,as opposed to what usually happens is just a few hours commonly over a weekend.
I noticed on the download site that Webroot Wifi Security is listed as not compatible with Windows 8. I didn't notice this exclusion when I first downloaded the software. Is this correct? Could this be why I can no longer access my software either on my phone or PC? Support told me to ignore that information. There is no compatibility issue.
