Anyone using WSA with another AV?
I was wondering if anyone else was using WSA with another AV. I know WSA has become much more robust than the Prevx days when it was marketed as an additional security layer to detect the threats that other AV's commonly missed. If you are using WSA with another AV then are you having any conflicts? I just installed WSA 220.127.116.11 with the final release of NOD 32 V7.0.302.0. I have not rebooted yet, but immediately I just had an issue with Firefox right after installing WSA. I clicked Firefox, and it never did run. I waited for about 30 seconds, and it never ran. I clicked it again, and it ran about 3 seconds after I clicked it a second time. I checked the task manager, and there was 2 instances of Firefox running.

However for many years back I used Norton Internet Security together with Prevx and later with WSA and had not also any security issues. Only hitch was in intermittent performance peaks which turned out to be Norton causing these.
Can I ask what is your browser encountering the start up issues?
You can open a support ticket https://detail.webrootanywhere.com/servicewelcome.asp so any issue with WSA can be looked at by the Webroot Team.
If you feel that WSA is causing an issue though, please do submit a ticket so my team can look into it for you.
just the webroot antiphishing is not working yet :(
I assume that you have checked Contro Active Processes under System Control to make sure that anything SD-related is not blocked (best that it is Allow but the compromise could be Monitor) and if that yields nothing have you tried adding the various SD components to the Block/Allow list under PC Security Advanced Settings, with a status of Allow?
I run KIS (2104 b) with WSA and whilst I have not experienced any incompatabilities between the two, I have tried to make sure that I exclude or whitelist the key components of each in the other...just to be on the safe side?
