Have tried numerous times to install Webroot on Macbook pro running Catalina, but when I download and then double click Webroot icon, nothing happens.  Any help to complete install?

Webroot was running fine prior to this, although when opening the console, it had an amber background instead of green, with “subscription expiration” notice even though i have years remaining on subscription.


That is why i attempted uninstall/reinstall


Thanks for any help...Tom

Tom, when you get a reply from Support with a fix can you please post why this is happening or what the fix is. You’re not the first to report this problem, “Double Clicking The Webroot Icon and Nothing Happening” while trying to install on macOS Catalina. The Webroot Forum Members would appreciate it. :relaxed:

Hi All, just got my MacOs Catalina install issue resolved by phone support. 

The only thing he could recommend to try on our own would be to run First Aid in Disk Utility after uninstalling Webroot, and then trying to re-install.

If this doesn’t work, contacting tech support is the only way to go, as some advanced commands used by them are only way to resolve the install issues which are unfortunately common in Catalina.

Good luck, hope this helps…….Tom
