Hello, Is there any way to control what applications are listed under application protection from the web management portal? We’re looking into this because lately we’ve had quite a few clients being unable to open chrome because webroot is stopping it from opening, and we can’t figure out what is telling webroot to put the chrome exe under app protection.
I would like to see the machine names displayed without being truncated to 15 characters. Glib comment: That is so 20th century.Seriously though. And when you pull a report, the report also shows the truncated names.Thanks for listening!
Webroot has effectively shut down O365 for my whole organization by blocking the login page.It doesn’t matter which way we approach, eg. “portal.office365”, “portal.azure” it’s when you get to the login landing you are met with: Warning: This is a High Risk SiteWebroot has blocked the website you are trying to access for your protection:https://login.microsoftonline...Detected Phishing SiteThis site might try to trick you into disclosing your login, password, or other sensitive information by disguising itself as a website that you trust.
Hi,I need to remove or disable webroot for an upgrade of the computer. The error is to please contact your network administrator, to access the user interface.Problem is the software was installed by a another company who is no longer administering the computer and we are unable to contact them so they can disable it.Can the Webroot just be uninstalled, or is there another way to open the programme. Its still active so we may as well use it if we can, but we need to setup white lists as well.Thanks
Hi, Is it possible to have something like a “MSP report“ instead of a report för every Site in Webroot?It would be much helpful if the reports could report several/all sites with information per Site.It’s tidious to have 1 report/site and the go throw these 1by1,Some Summerizes Reports would be very helpful...or maybe im missing something here?
I just wanted to share my own recent experience with uninstalling Webroot Business Endpoint Protection which has received a number of questions over the years and hopefully help someone out. This is the process that I’ve had success with and does require that your agents are checking into the Webroot console and your RMM tool (mine is ConnectWise Automate)Adjust your policies so that agents check in as frequently as possible Tag the target agent(s) with the “unmanaged” policy. For off-boarding, etc., I use a separate group with the Unmanaged policy applied and just move the agents into that group and apply the new policy. Allow them plenty of time to check in and get the policy update. Issue the Uninstall Agent command from the console. We’ve had about a 90% or so success rate with this command. Some will report that the command has executed, but continue to check in. For instances where the console uninstall doesn’t seem to take, we then jump to our RMM tool for help. I stopped using
I wanted to text blocking 7zip on a Policy Copy due to Ransomware concerns where 7zip is used to encrypt files, but I cannot figure out how to find an option to block applications from the Admin Console. I see the option on the Workstation doesn’t allow changes (PC Security - Blow/Allow Files).Also, I used to be able to allow/block applications under Agent Commands in the old console, but no longer see that opion in the New Console.Any help would be appreciated.
Hi,Since the change to the updated console we are seeing discrepancies in the number of entities. Example, one customer shows 12 entities when they only have 11Example2 customer shows 15 entities however there are 18 If we go into the legacy console the number align and reflect the number of seats allocated. Any ideas
Hi!We are operating 12 vessels in open sea water and internet communication is not available. We can send receive email from vessel along with small file replication to vessel computers.We are interested in deploying Webroot Business Endpoint to the fleet.BIG question is , how we can perform Webroot updates as vessels are practically offline. Any suggetsions? RegardsElias Kouros
Ugh. I hate when companies “change” things and think it’s better. I have over 100 devices that were grouped together by service plans, (I resell webroot to home / end users) and then each pc was renamed to the customer’s name for billing purposes as the actual hostname is meaningless to me. The new dashboard just wiped all the host names I had created over the years and reverted them back to the pc’s original host name so now I have no idea which pc belongs to which customer. And looking at the details, when a home / residential user is using a log in account of “princess” that isn’t going to tell me what the customer’s last name is for billing. Who thought this was a good idea without telling users / admins? Anyway to revert this?
Overall, I do like the new console, but I can’t find the column chooser so I can view useful data like last logged on user, IP address, agent version, etc. The ability to export to csv also appears to be missing which was useful in sending teams CSVs of agents not seen recently. I can still get to some of that functionality by going to site → Endpoint Protection and going to the old console, but that is temporary and very clunky. Is the functionality described going to be moved into the new console? Is there a tentative timeline?
@freydrew @Rob House In the live Q&A post about the new console, you said that friendly names would be shown from the old console but functionality did not yet exist to rename in the new console.I’m disappointed to tell you that friendly names are NOT being shown in the new console. This is going to make management very difficult. Is this a bug that you’ll be fixing soon?REF:
MSP here. I’ve seen other posts that discuss Webroot with Windows Defender, but now that it’s 2021, Windows 10 has changed a bit.Why other posts don’t apply anymore: Disable periodic scans in Windows Defender is no longer an option According to this article, you can set a DWORD value in the registry to enable Passive Mode for Defender, however, upon setting it, is has no effect on issue #1 belowTwo issues:With Webroot + Windows Defender enabled, Windows Defender is still actively scanning data in real-time. I ran a test and saw the Microsoft Anti-Malware service spike up to 30-40% CPU usage. Webroot is installed and functioning correctly, but Webroot doesn’t seem tell Windows Defender to turn off. I have a registry hack to force Windows Defender off, but I’d rather not apply that unless I have to. In addition, if I disable “Real-time Protection” in Windows Defender, I get a toast message that says that Windows Defender & Webroot are both disabled, even though Webroot is actually
There’s a list of URLs that need to be granted access through firewalls from your KB that float around this forum.

Hi, Is there a way to include new targets in an existing Program. I launched a Program and now I need to add the new employees into the existing Program. I believe we can include new campaigns to the launched program but not sure of including the new targets which has been imported will be part of the Program too. Thanks
How does the following registry key get populated? We have had several instances where this value is populated and it causes issues for our users. Once we blank it out, everything is back to normal. One instance where this happens is when our users connect to VPN for another company we support. This key gets updated with server names inside that customers environment which obviously won’t work. Trying to understand if the their VPN process is updating this key directly or if Webroot is populating this key based on the network configuration at some point in time?
