What Does Your Company Do?
Hi Everyone, This topic is for Webroot customers to use to talk about their businesses. We're always curious to know what kind of companies use Webroot. We know from experience that Webroot is great for any business - big or small - no matter what industry you're in. For instance, our [url=https://community.webroot.com/t5/Customer-Reviews/ct-p/ent7]reviews page[/url] contains some examples of how our security technology has helped a variety of companies - from [url=http://www.flyingdoctor.org.au/About-Us/Our-History/]flying doctors[/url] and [url=http://www.gadens.com.au/whoweare/aboutus/Pages/default.aspx]law firms[/url] to [url=http://www.hoffmanbeverage.com/who-we-are]beer distributors[/url] and [url=http://www.cmicro.com/company]on-wafer probe manufacturers[/url]. So when your company isn't worrying about which security products to go with, what else does it do? Is there anything new going on that you'd like to share with us? We'd love to

False report on Mac OS Sierra?
Hi, We are receiving reports from Webroot of a detection that I am not sure is true... How do I know if it is a false positive? The report log is below:- Automated Cleanup Engine Starting Cleanup at 2016-Oct-26 11:40:30 Starting Routine> Detected /Volumes/Time Machine Backups/Backups.backupdb/User/2016-10-26-053418/Macintosh HD/.PKInstallSandboxManager-SystemSoftware/3F5A27F6-09A2-4D3F-8049-A2ABB8F44C32.sandbox/Root/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreFoundation.framework/Versions/A/CoreFoundation [Name: "PUA.OSX.TuneUpMyMac.1.r", MD5: 00000000000000000000000000000000] Quarantining File> Removing /Volumes/Time Machine Backups/Backups.backupdb/User/2016-10-26-053418/Macintosh HD/.PKInstallSandboxManager-SystemSoftware/3F5A27F6-09A2-4D3F-8049-A2ABB8F44C32.sandbox/Root/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreFoundation.framework/Versions/A/CoreFoundation Quarantining File> Removing /Volumes/Time Machine Backups/Backups.backupdb/User/2016-10-26-053418/Macintosh HD/.PKInstallS
Firefox and WSA EP trial key issue
Hi Guys Currently it is not possible to get the trial key for WSA Endpoint Protection in the Firefox browser. We are redirected to a different subpage and do not get any trial key. Customers are very unhappy with this (over50% are using Firefox) - what can I say to them / when it will be fixed? Regards
Citrix Provisioning & Webroot
We're implementing/still testing a virtual desktop infrastructure using Citrix XenDesktop 7.6 running atop VMware vSphere 5.5. The environment is built, support servers running, etc. and we're working on master image deployment via Citrix PVS, but we're running into trouble when it comes to WSA installations. According to the documentation, running WSA is supported within the virtual environment, either using the -clone or -uniquedevice commandline option. We're building WSA into our master image and we've tried it both ways (used both command line options), but when we provision our virtual machines, we don't see those registering within the Webroot Admin Console. When we used -uniquedevice, we saw 1 provisioned VM register in the console but with continual refreshes, that same instance in the Admin Console would change names, our assumption was that we were seeing the last provisioned VM to check in. When we used -clone, to be honest I'm not exactly sure
What sort of bandwidth do you have at work?

Webroot and windows 10
Some observations on installing Webroot endpoint protection (v18.104.22.168) on a Windows 10 (build 10041) test VM.... The endpoint can't / won't check in to the console. I basically have an extra license now ;) Since the endpoint won't call home, it has not picked up our default policy. The GUI will open, all controls are accessible from the user side (no bueno). In our environment, windows firewall is turned off. Webroot is most adamant about telling me this. I click no when it asks if I want WR to keep monitoring the windows firewall. Then, a few minutes later, it happily tells me that windows firewall is turned off... Obviously, these are not pressing issues on my side, I just wanted to report the behavior I have seen from testing WR on a new OS. I did not have WR installed on any previous Win 10 builds, so I have no idea if this was happening on earlier builds.
How do I disable Webroot on a single endpoint for testing?
Hello! New Webroot SecureAnywhere user here. I recently started at a company that uses this software however I have no experience with it. Dumb question, but we are troubleshooting some software issues on a PC that has Webroot SecureAnywhere installed on it. I have access to the Admin console but am unable to disable the software locally. How do I disable this software on a single PC for testing purposes?
Labtech plugin broken since 3.0 update in Nov 2017
Anyone else's Labtech plugin been broken since the 3.0 update? When we updated the plugin from 2.5 to 3.0, the plugin dashboard showed most agents as "non-GSM" and lacked information for them. After 3 months working with support on the issue, we're still nowhere, and can't reliably monitor our ~5,000 agents.
Endpoints not seen recently, not on latest version
I've seen several posts on this subject already, with no clear resolution. We have 50+ sites, with random endpoints that are "not seen recently" and are all on a previous version of Webroot (not the most current). My assumption is that the endpoints have just stopped "checking in" with the console and are not upgrading as they should. We have hundreds of endpoints in this state. The fix I've seen is "reinstall Webroot" but I have yet to see a solution to the root cause. We're a Continuum partner, so we're not supposed to contact Webroot directly, but I don't see any other way to get this resolved. Can anyone offer advice here? This is a pretty big problem for us (and I'm not the only one, others in the Continuum forums have the same issue).
Problem with Key Code change
I'm in the process of migrating end points from our old console to WGSM. I'm having issues with a couple of endpoints not accepting the key code changes. I will input the key code manually in the old console, they will appear briefly in the console for the key code they have been changed to, but they still report the old key code, so they eventually reappear in the old console. I'm also having issues with one endpoint where I'm checking the GUI on the endpoint, sending the command to change the key code, checking in the GUI that the new key code is showing after refreshing the configuration, running a scan, then the key code is reverting back to what it was originally. I'm starting to tear my hair out. Please can anyone help?
Windows 10 with microsoft wireless keyboards
Hello We are having problem's with Windows 10, Microsoft Wireless Keybaord and Webroot causing Blue screen errors. It Seems very random, no changers were being made? It just happens on one PC and they are all from the same image. Uninstalling Web root or pluging in a wired keybaord fixes it. Does anyone know why only on some PC's? Andrew
Webroot Client possibly (probably) causing App crash
We have a legacy VMware Thin App virtualised application which has been working until quite recently, i.e. just in the last day or so, users are experiencing app crashes when launching the virtualised app.We have found that removing the Webroot client from a sample computer eliminates the symptoms of the application crashing and therefore we believe that the Webroot client is interfering with execution.We have added Global Whitelists entries for the Application executable and for the UNC from where the Application executable is run and streamed, but this has not resolved the issue.I suspect that somehow the Webroot client is interfering with the data streaming process upon which the ThinApp virtualisation framework depends.This affected application is business critical, so I need to find a way to correct this behaviour, or we will be forced to abandon Webroot in favour of an alternative AV solution for all affected users. I have a raised a Support ticket today and currently awaiting a
Webroot integration with Labtech RMM
Hi folks, I've been attempting to integrate Webroot SecureAnywhere with our Labtech RMM, however as Webroot is like [b]no other antivirus whatsoever [/b]I cannot do this successfully. It's a fantastic piece of kit and we'd love to have it picked up by our Labtech setup as we're currently rolling Webroot out throughout our client base. The issues we currently face are: 1. Labtech looks for a definition file, which I'm fairly sure Webroot does not store locally, so we cannot supply one. 2. Labtech looks for a command line scan function, which we cannot locate. 3. Labtech looks for an update command, which again Webroot does not require as we keep it updated with GPO Has anyone managed to successfully integrate Webroot with Labtech? We're currently on Labtech 2012.1 (CC and Agent v51.155) Thank you in advance for your assistance. Marc Hilton Network Engineer Spector
Behaviour after .msi deployment
I am testing msi deployment as we are about to roll this out to an enterprise client. I am using a "live" test environment of various server and client operating systems. When I first deployed this to a client machine, the webroot icon in the system tray had a warning triangle stating that a scan was required. Is there anyway to get Webroot to scan immediately anyway, as with 200 + machines to roll this out to, we could do without manual intervention. TIA
CryptoLocker Malware: What you still need to knowKnowledge Base
[h3]What is CryptoLocker?[/h3]CryptoLocker is most often spread through booby-trapped email attachments and uses military grade encryption. The malware can also be deployed by hacked and malicious web sites by exploiting outdated browser plugins. [h3][url=http://images.saas.webroot.com/Web/Webroot/%7bd4d3ba36-c6b8-43f7-944e-19c486dbcd31%7d_Cryptolocker.pdf][b]Webroot's Threat Brief on CryptoLocker[/b][/url][/h3][b] [/b] [h3]Can Webroot Protect Customers Against It?[/h3] Encrypting ransomware (Cryptolocker, CTB Locker, Crtroni, Cryptowall, ect.) is a very difficult infection to remediate because it uses the RSA public-key encryption algorithm to encrypt user files using unique encryption keys for each computer. Once a user’s files are encrypted this way, it is next to impossible to decrypt them without access to the private key that is stored on the remote servers in use by the malware author(s). There are no tools currently that are capable
Why do we have 5700+ undetermined software for months?
Hi, I wish to mention here my problem with Webroot Threat Research: I have a customer who has [b]5700+ undetermined software[/b] in the '[i]All undetermined software seen[/i]' report [b]for months[/b]. (And some more customers with 1000+ undetermined software) First of all, I do not understand how this can happen? Actually, I expect Webroot Threat Research to classify all undetermined software as soon as possible, otherwise how could Webroot guarantee that there are not any malware among them --- that are being able to run on the endpoint thanks to the way WSA client is developed, it will run just until the client receives the BAD classification from the cloud. But it looks like many thousand software are simply never gets classified. So in my reading, a malware can simply run anytime for quite a long time (eg. for month as in our case). I think the expected approach from Webroot is that in case of undetermined objects added to the list and the reported to the cloud then Webroo
HTML/CSS Rendering issues
Hey guys, I moved my company onto Webroot Endpoint Protection a few months ago and since installing it across the board, I get a ton of complaints about websites not loading properly. They'll come up with the HTML screwed up and the user has to refresh the page one or two times for it to load properly. It's sporadic--but some users have it happen a lot more than others. It's sites that use SSL and sites that don't. I have not been able to narrow down the cause. When I remove WSA, it goes away, so it's clearly something in the settings. I've been beating my head against the wall for too long... Does anyone know what option is causing this?

Anyone use Spiceworks and know about SpiceRex, their community mascot?
If you're not familiar with him, he is the mascot invented by the Spiceworks community. He travels around[url=http://community.spiceworks.com/spicerex] visiting IT pros[/url] and seeing the sights. He stopped by the Webroot office, so I gave him a tour and posted a bunch of photos. You can see them in the SpiceRex group on the Spiceworks community [url=http://community.spiceworks.com/topic/449365-spicerex-touring-the-webroot-office]here[/url].
