I am not sure Webroot is truly working properly on my computer. I have already uninstalled and reinstalled it more than once and the same thing continues to occur. Using today as an example, this is what happens when I turn on my computer the first time in a given day (laptop running Windows 10):
I pressed the power button. Then, I entered my Windows password. As soon as the desktop screen popped up, I opened the Webroot product window, which showed that less than five minutes earlier, a scan of 6 minutes and 24 seconds was completed and that the next scan will occur in 24 hours. How is this possible when the computer has only been turned on for less than two minutes?
In the past, I noticed that when I hovered over the icon for Webroot right after turning on my computer (the one on the desktop page's taskbar, to the right of the arrow for the hidden icons), it would show it was scanning. More recently, I noticed this was no longer happening -- and, that when I open the product window, I get messages saying a scan has just occurred - even though there hasn’t been enough time for the scan to have occurred.
What is going on? It does not inspire confidence to have the product SAY it just did a scan when the computer hasn't been on long enough for that scan to have occurred!!!
