Since upgrading from PrevX to Webroot on my primary pcs I've noticed a that all 4 computers are VERY slow to startup. Once the desktop loads all icons, these icons remain inactive for around 1-2 minutes on each pc. At first I thought it was just on my own computer, until today when I accessed all 4 pcs, and am now seeing that all 4 of them have this same problem. It's as if clickign the icons on my desktop will not work to open any of them during this 1-2 minute period. Right clicking to open menu, then clicking OPEN will open some of my icons, however even this is a slow process. This has never been an issue before the webroot upgrade, and no new programs have been installed. I barely use add-ons on any of my browsers, with the exception of ad-block plus, and DNTme, which have never been a problem before.
Since this upgrade I've also noticed that while browsing pages are very slow to load, and from time to time a new page will not completely load. The reason I switched to PrevX from Norton/Symantec was becasue Norton slowed my computers down so much, whereas PrevX never affected speed on my pcs.
If this problem has been discussed here previously, or if there is a solution to it already posted, my apologies. I've searched the forum post, and have not been able to find this exact problem, so am hoping someone can shed some light on the subject and tell me how to fix this.
Thanks in advance for any help!
