Nothing worse when you are in the middle of something and the screen starts freezing. Updated the video drivers and it seemed to eliminate the issue but returned aparadically. Stated IE without addons but didn't solve the freeze. Then decided to shutdown SecureAnyWhere and have not yet had the type of freeze (other than perhaps some impatience) previously experienced..
Don't like the idea of having the product shutdown since i'm a paid subscriber but something is going on that is causing a significant conflict and eventual screen freeze and it appears related to secureanywhere.

Just requesting the ID shield be disabled specifically. Main window, click on the Identity & Privacy tab at the top, then click on the green "Switch" to the left of the words "Identity Shield is On" to turn it off.
Our SecureAnywhere firewall is a network firewall only ans doesn't care about memory consumption. Are you certain it was a Webroot firewall warning specifically?
The process "plugin-container.exe" is the Firefox sandbox for all plugins. PDFs, Flash, and other things loaded inside the browser in plugins will load inside that process to try to keep them away from the rest of the computer. If the plugin-container.exe process was taking up too much memory, there had to have been something flash (video, animated stuff, or a threat) loading, or something else that uses the plugin system loading, and taking up WAY more memory than it should. This can be caused by so many diffrent things that I can't begin to speak on them unfortunately. I looked to see if there were logs from your ticket, but if you supplied wsalogs results at any point, they were not from the email you used on the forums. This case is best handled through the ticketing system though, since there are so many possibilities, the logs will help narrow it down.
I started using Webroot about 4 or 5 months ago. The antivirus section is not even that good. It has missed viruses that my offline virus scanner that I have created a dvd for never misses. I have used Norton, AVG, Mcaffee, panda. They all have issues. But I have a subscription for a year and will keep an eye on it.
Please check the "Edit/View Protected Applications" link under the Identity & Privacy tab.
Look for anything you absolutely trust marked as "Block". If you find this, change it to Allow. You are done and good to go in this case. For bonus points, feel free to contact support and let them know what was under block that you allowed and fixed it.
Look for anything that you have absolutely no idea about marked as Block. If you find this, and can't identify it, contact Support and advise them about the information I am giving here. They will need a full set of wsalogs and will instruct you on how to get them if you have not done so already.
If you find nothing blocked, as a temporary measure you may set iexplore.exe to Allow instead of Protect and contact support. They will need full wsalogs in that case and will instruct you on how to acquire them if you have not done so already.
Once this is done, in any case, you may turn the ID Shield back on.
Way too much info bonus section:
The ID shield specifically prevents blocked and sometimes certain other processes from accessing various resources when a protected browser window is open. Applications should not have any problem when they can't get these, however in order for that to be the case, the application must be written properly, and if it isn't, it'll have problems. If an addon in IE is being blocked from accessing IE and isn't written properly, it will freeze up IE while it tries to get the data it wants and can't. If something else on the computer is trying to access IE and can't, it might freeze up other things on the computer while it is being blocked.
