I make calls through Google Voice when at home since I have no phone signal. I recently renewed my WebRoot subscription and the platform updated to the 2021 version of Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus (according to the interface.) Suddenly my microphone no longer works when I’m using it in any browser. I tested various browsers, disabled browser extensions, and checked both browser/Windows microphone permissions. Microphone does not work until I turn off WebRoot. Something in the software is blocking my microphone and I cannot figure out which setting it would be. The help page on WebRoot’s different “Shield” settings is vague and hasn’t given me any answers; I did find another community post from years ago here that had a similar issue that recommended checking Active Connections, but as the browsers do not appear as active connections in the interface, this solve hasn’t worked for me. Would definitely appreciate help, since I cannot narrow down which setting it is and it is ridiculou
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.
My computers Reliability Monitor logs are flooded with the following error:Windows Installer installed the product. Product Name: Core. Product Version: 1.1.227. Product Language: 1033. Manufacturer: Webroot. Installation success or error status: 1603I can’t run a manual update either. I did see the other community entry about deleting the WRData folder but that has not helped. C: drive has plenty of space and I am not seeing any other issues.
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.
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?
Just installed trial of Webroot Anywhere. I do daily online banking and money movements. I have been using an internet security system which has safe browser so Webroot looking different to me. I use Microsoft Edge Browser as dedicated browser and default and use virtual keyboard when banking.I have checked and see that Identitiy Shield is ON and Webroot threat shield is showing in the browser. Is that all I have to do please ?
I have tried installing Webroot twice now, and as it is doing the initial scan during setup it kills my audio services. Once it has done that, the computer bogs down, and I have to reset it(from safe mode), or do like I did this time, and do a system restore. Does anyone have any ideas as to why it keeps doing this?
