I am a software developer. As such, I may compile and test a progra 20-30 times per day. Starting this week, I am getting a pop-up from WebRoot that my program is trying to access the internet (its not). The box gives me 3 options: Block 'Allow Once' or 'Allow Always'. I picked 'Allow Always'. I get this almost every time I try to run the program after a compile - very annoying.

Are you a large business user with a corporate management console, or are you using a home version where all the settings are controlled on the PC?
That tells me this is probably a flag raised by heuristics. When a brand new program is seen for the first time, it's going to be treated with a higher level of suspicion than a program that's been seen before. Dev environments are prone to set off heuristics flags. You can disable heuristics to avoid the warnings. That's in Advanced Settings > Heuristics.
When I did the disable, I did get a message that my settings were being managed by the Web Console and that the setting might be changed. I do have a place I can go and see all the PCs in my company - is that the Web Console??
