Cannot open Webroot SecureAnywhere
Hi,I had Webroot Secureanywhere on my Mac last year. I have the latest OS. I renewed, by installing again Webroot. When I try to open it, the Webroot window with scan options does not open. Previously, I was able to open, and was able to check the status, or change setting. Now, I cannot do anything. I installed it using download from the site. I tried to reinstall from the CD, but I get message that the install is up to date.Help. Thanks for assistance.
software development with Webroot SecureAnywhere
I recently installed Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus on two of my software development machines (Windows 10 Pro, Microsoft Visual Studio Community Edition 2019, C/C++ console programs, NMAKE, one test executable per module). Now my build scripts are failing because multiple compiled executables are being flagged, even when they are added to the allowed files list in the “Block/Allow Files” tab.It seems that every time an executable is linked, it’s considered a “new” file that must be scanned and then suppressed. Even if I allow the program, it’s too late - the build has been aborted with the message “NMAKE : fatal error U1045: spawn failed : Permission denied”.I’ve also tried adding the code directories to the “Whitelisted Scripts” tab to no avail.How can I, as a software developer, make Webroot SecureAnywhere work for me?Thanks in advance.
Protected browser (Chrome) won't launch
I’ve been having an issue with Chrome not launching when it’s on the protected list of Webroot. This seems to happen after Chrome has updated. I’ve had to switch Chrome from “Protect” to “Allow” in order for it to launch. This doesn’t seem to be an issue with Firefox. I’ve tried reinstalling Webroot multiple times with no success. Is there something I’m missing? Why is this a continuing issue?
Hello,I am writing this from information given to me from my grandfather so I apologize if this is a bit vague, I will do the best I can. Over the weekend my grandfather got a call claiming they were from microsoft and that his computer had a virus and that he needed to follow their instructions to remove it. This involved uninstalling his current anti-virus and installing a suite of programs including Webroot. They then asked for a large sum of money for the virus removal and activation of the new anti-virus software for a 5 year warranty period. All of this was done over the phone and he did not write any of it down so we have no clue what the key was that they gave him or any other relevant information. The only info they gave him for future contact was the geek squad number, and when he tried to call the number they have no record of the transaction (of course). Is there any thing we can do to potentially find the key that they gave him and the details of his subscription; if there

SecureAnywhere stops sound in browsers
I’ve used SecureAnywhere for many years on my Win7 SP1 PC, shields & firewall are all turned on. Works fine, except for 1 thing: Sound in Firefox and Chrome doesn’t work. If I shut down protection, the sound works immediately, in YouTube for example. Why?Sound in apps works fine - eg in Spotify’s app on my PC, the sound is fine, but if I go to Spotify in a browser instead, I get no sound unless I shut down SecureAnywhere.
Does Webroot Disable the Malware App in WinX Home?
We’re having a problem installing some software and the dimwit at the help desk wants us to interrogate the Windows Ransomware app though she knows we have Webroot. We’re being denied access with something along the lines of “Your IT department has blocked access to this app...” which is silly because there is no IT department here and both of us have administrator privileges for this computer. I was wondering if this is really Webroot taking charge of security. The Webroot report shows no suspicious activity in the past two years. Is there any value to pursuing this problem further or can we rely on Webroot’s report wrt “ransomware”?
Webroot disappears after Windows 10 updates?
Hello All,I’ve used Webroot Secureanywhere for about 4 years now. Recently, after Windows 10 updated to KB4023057 and KB5005611, my Webroot shortcut disappears off the screen, and the whole program disappears off my list of programs. I run the installer, which is still in my downloads, and it won’t run/open. When this first happened a few days ago, after researching for a solution for hours, I ran all my antivirus programs such as Malwarebytes and Superantispyware, and they found nothing. So, I did a system restore in safe mode to get rid of the two new updates, and my Weboot came back and worked no problem….anyone have any ideas? Oh, its a HP laptop, Intel i7-7700 2.8ghz, 12gb RAM, 128gb SD drive, and a 1 TB standard, high speed hard drive, Intel HD graphics, and a GEOForce GTX video card….4 years old….
Scan taking nearly 24hrs still not completed
HiI am scanning a usb external drive that is 2T in size. Not only is webroot using all system resources so I cannot do anything much in windows generally, but its also only scanned ¾ of the drive and has been going for 18 hours. There is no way to pause the scan while I do other stuff. Is webroot not designed to handle large drives
just renewed my subscription but i think my mac still has a virus
I just renewed my subscription a few hours ago (I was without it for a few months) because my safari would use yahoo search engine instead of google. i looked it up to see why it was doing that and it said that it was a malware virus. so I renewed it and when I went to scan for any viruses it said that it was clean but safari is still using yahoo search engine instead of google.
Starting sometime late last year, every time I do a scan with WR first a popup says “Do you want (this program) to make CHANGES on your computer?” I click no; I only want it to scan for malware. Why am I asked this? For years it would just scan and report. Second, after each scan (which incidentally is far SHORTER that a year ago, showing less than half as many files scanned as before… and taking a fraction of the time) it says “No threats found” - then at the end of the list of findings in the report the entire frame goes red and one item (also in red...) states “An antivirus program is installed but not protecting your computer”. I click on the message with no response.But when I click on the (?) icon it directs me to a startup page whereby I can PURCHASE Webroot! WHAT is going ON with this system? Most or all these changes have appeared in less than the past year despite my memembership self-renewing just months ago. ...And all this AFTER being told MS was no longer supporting m
How to downgrade Webroot Internet Security to Webroot Antivirus
Hello, I no longer require the extra features or devices of Webroot Internet Security and am looking to downgrade to the lower cost Webroot Antivirus. Do I simply purchase Webroot AV and input the key on my current Webroot Internet Security install? Will it require uninstalling and reinstalling the product? Thanks!
