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
I just update my cataline and now my Webroot is not working. I know it wasn’t supported as a 64bit software and I’m assuming thats most likely the cause. I reisntall it and see if its compatible or not. I followed the instruction but but the link brings me to the webpage to buy it. Any help on getting it back would be helpful!
On my MacBook pro I get the above message when I start up the system. This points to the file “/System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.appleseed.seedusaged.postinstall.plist”.This file contains what looks like a call to the “Feedback Assistant.app” app: <key>Label</key> <string>com.apple.appleseed.seedusaged.postinstall</string> <key>LimitLoadToSesionType</key> <string>Aqua</string> <key>ProgramArguments</key> <array> <string>oneShot</string> </array> <key>RunAtLoad</key> <true/> <key>Program</key> <string>/System/Library/CoreServices/Applications/Feedback Assistant.app/Contents/Library/LaunchServices/seedusaged</string> Is this normal and OK, or is it some kind of malware? Thanks.
Hello,macOS Big Sur 11 (20A5395g)I have installed SecureAnywhere 126.96.36.199:1520 for the first time. I’ve selected “unmanaged” within the web panel to allow full option control via the app.Advanced » ‘Scan Mounted Drives’ is Not selected.As the “View Scan” » ‘Scan Window’ does not show the full path of the current scan, I’ve been watching the progress and can identify from the last few characters of the squashed file path, that it’s remote mounted volumes.The scan is into the 8+ hours already and showing no signs of ever completing due to the number of files available on my mounted volumes.How do I stop mounted volumes from being scanned? How do I see a proper full path of the current files being scanned?Thank you.
Hi everyone.There was an update today (Oct. 14, 2020) for Webroot SecureAnywhere for Mac. The screen turned yellow and the update button appeared. I didn’t see any product announcement on the community forum to get more information about the update.This update is 188.8.131.52. The previous version was 184.108.40.206.I went ahead and installed the update anyway on my Mac with Catalina 10.15.6. So my experience was basically the same as last month’s update.I just want to share my experience with this update...To download and install the update, I clicked the “Update Now” button (see screenshot below). The console will appear yellow. Be patient... It will take about 1 or 2 minutes for the product to update. At first you won’t see anything happen after clicking the button and you might wonder whether the update is working at all. Don’t panic, and don’t press the update button more than once. After a couple minutes you will see two Webroot icons running in the Dock. Let the update proceed. Both ico
Yesterday I installed a more recent version of Word. This morning when I turned on my computer I got the following window:“Webroot Security had detected that the Gatekeeper protection level has been set to allow installation of all apps.”Has my security been compromised? Nothing in Webroot dashboard seems to indicate this. How do I address this issue?
I have downloaded and reinstalled SecureAnywhere (version 220.127.116.11) on my Macbook Pro (macOS 10.15.7) but cannot get it to open. WSA appears in Applications but when I double click on icon “Webroot SecureAnywhere” appears in top menubar but without any menu listing and nothing else happens. The Webroot icon also appears in the Taskbar with small black dot beneath that suggests WSA is running but double click on it and again nothing happens.Any suggestions woould be appreciated.Graham

Apple just released macOS Catalina 10.15.7 on Sept. 24, 2020. Details of this update is available on MacWorld.This update will likely be the last before Apple releases macOS Big Sur 11, later this fall. Has anyone come across any incompatibility issues or problems running WebRoot SecureAnywhere 22.214.171.124 under macOS Catalina 10.15.7?
I’m running WSE 126.96.36.199 on Mac OS 11.0 Beta (20A5374i)WSE is running multiple overlapped scans that takes forever and consumes all the available memory.It also claims that a threat is detected but nothing show when I select Remove Threats.Cancelling running scans dos not work.I was pretty happy until Big Sur, but I have to say that is not working at all from now on.Please help me stay protected with a nominal memory consumption.
After upgrading to MacOS Catalina, the WSA window launched on every new login.Really annoying, and no way to control it.So I tried uninstall Webroot, and reinstalling.But after clicking the installer, nothing happens.The webroot icon is sitting in the dock, its open, and clicking it, the menu-bar with only shows “WebrootSecureAnywhere” but just that, no dropdown menus, or app window .I tried this two times, and same result.Please advise

I cannot uninstall from Mac Catalina 10.15.6. I submitted a ticket five days ago. I have been on hold for an hour the past three days in a row and no answer. Someone PLEASE help me. No Webroot shows in the apps or anywhere in Finder on my computer. I cannot install new version of Webroot or any other virus protection. I cannot even reset my password and had to register a different account. Any help is appreciated.
I have Webroot installed on two PCs and now want to add it to an old Mac running El Capitan OS. I have coverage for three devices so should not be a problem and I have read here and elsewhere that you can install on Macs and PCs with the same key code. After downloading the installer, I get to the second screen (after language choice) where I am to add my key code but the entry box will not accept any characters at all - believe me as I tried every key on the keyboard. The display flashed in response to each keystroke but nothing is entered into the box. Thoughts?
