After last Win 10 update to 21H2, I noticed a tiny widget?… ( 1/8” translucent spinning circle, 1/2” from left border, & 2 58” from screen bottom). Check your own desktop Closely , before you answer this!I only use Google Chrome, and haven’t visited any new websites. I did a negative Full scan. In the old Win7 days, CCleaner would remove Widgets..., but caused system problems…!Also in the Win7 days, I had An AV that put a Large spinning Widget on the desktop. I thought this may be a new WSA feature, or how do I get rid of This?BTW- I tried doing a Snip, but it didn’t show?
Today Firefox updated to 97.0 on my windows 10 machine. When I restarted my computer, nothing works in firefox anymore. I can load it once, but I can’t browse to any webpage or even pull up the settings or about Firefox menu. When I close it I cannot open Firefox again.I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. I eventually tried installing the 32-bit version and it worked. I reinstalled the 64-bit version and found that if I close out of Webroot completely it would work normally. It only works if I shut down webroot completely. If I turn off individual shields (or all the shields) it won’t work, but exiting webroot causes firefox to instantly start working again.Webroot gives no indication that it is blocking anything. Any ideas as to why this is happening and how I can fix it?

Hi,I am trying to install Webroot SecureAnywhere through Microsoft Endpoint manager so that when the computer syncs up to Intune and pulls the deployment profile and the apps to install this is automatically installed as well. What am I missing? Pictures attached for reference. I place the license key where GUILIC=0000-0000-0000-0000-0000-0000. I also make sure the correct group has the devices in it and are in the required group for assignments. Any help?
Hello,Out of curiosity I downloaded various Eicar files from here:https://ipinfo.info/html/testvirus.phpI was able to save most of them in a folder, without any reaction from Webroot.If I scan the folder , the are detected as “malicious” , but no reaction when I downloaded them.I have “Scan archived files” and “ Check files for threats when written or modified” selected.Theoretically , these Eicar versions should have been scanned upon download.
So what’s the time frame for a permanent fix for the issues between Webroot and Easy Anti-Cheat?I created a support ticket a while back to get this fixed, but after learning you need remote access to my PC in order to fix it, I decided not to continue. I managed to fix it myself by uninstalling Webroot, let the game (Black Desert Online) open up it’s menu and then install Webroot. It’s been working fine until now, where they sent out a patch./Mikael
Win10 Pro x64, v 21H1 (going to 21H2 soon...)I have a 5ghz CPU/ 16gig Ram/ 500gig 6x optical SSD C: drive (with only 40gig used)/ 100mbps cable internet-This is a Very Fast Desktop, and no reason for Trusting Programs... to be sooo slow (with buggy ESET NOD32 AV), and went to Webroot SA AV, which is a little slower (Computer is no faster after a reboot).Every time I do a Windows Update (Install a new AV...), I have a list of 12 common... Programs/Utilities that I Fully open/close Twice to get them Trusted (Is there a better way??).I also slowly... open/close my Google Chrome browser 4-times, before it is fast.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~With all other AV’s I’ve had- I install them from a desktop folder download/reboot, before the hidden taskbar icon… is useable, then Trust Edge/ Chrome to get Extensions installed/Trusted….I did the same with my last Webroot install, but getting programs like Word/Foxit Reader… Trusted takes twice as long as before!?~~Should I have have installed diff
So my son has the PC version of Xbox Gamepass, and he recently downloaded the new game Back4Blood. Attempting to load it, though, results in a splash screen with easy-anti-cheat logo that completes the load -- and nothing else. Searching for this issue, many answers point back to Webroot as not allowing this to run. The “solution” is to uninstall Webroot. Is this a known issue, and if so, can we expect it to be patched soon, or is the “solution” to uninstall Webroot?
Web page won't actually let me log into Open a Support Ticket. It asks for permission to create cookies, I giver permission, I paste in my password, and it goes back to the damned cookie window.OldCoderEdit: Removed personal email address. ~ PTD ~
Webroot finds this infection. I tell it to remove the threat, and it finds it again. It makes NO forward progress in actually removing this virus. Support appears to be closed, and I’m not yet finding this in the community forum.OldCoder
Hi,I need to exclude a directory under the user’s home directory on a drive containing all user home directories.The folder in question is a cache folder for an application, and the Real Time scanning slows it down terribly. For example: 'thisfolder’c:\home_folders\joe\thisfolderc:\home_folders\bill\thisfolderc:\home_folders\steve\thisfolder So I'm looking for a pattern maybe like: c:\home_folders\*\thisfolder How can I accomplish this
Recently installed Webroot on new Windows 11 desktop, and also old Windows 7 desktop. Now I cannot scan from either PC. Printer works. I submitted a customer service inquiry and am awaiting a reply. My computer skills are not advance, so need help in simple language. I did check utility controls and everything is allowed. Will have to look for different anti-virus software if this isn’t soon fixed.
^ Title says it all.I have been using NBMiner for a little bit now.And its worked fine.However, around the same time I had a remote session to fix Battlefield 2042’s issues (Which by the way didn’t work, *Read below for that*) Webroot seemed to just ignore NBMiner’s whitelist and just close it anyway.I’ve whitelisted NBMiner.exe, CMD.exe, Eth.bat, etc. etc.Despite this, NBMiner still gets shutdown repeatedly, this is the same for TRex Miner as well.Is there any way to just say to the AV: “NO, NBMiner GOOD! NO DELETE PLS!”Because I can’t find a way… =Below this is about battlefield 2042=(*Read below from before*)Battlefield didn’t launch after the fix session, so after that I reinstalled it and it still didn’t work. I was told to call back, but the offices are now closed for the holidays. (I’m probably just going to wait on a new Webroot patch or EAC patch. (It would be nice to get some info on when that comes out))
I was contacted by a “Webroot representative “ telling me I owed $1,499 a year for the past three years after signing up for service in 2018.I was unaware of this obviously and told them i wanted to cancel the service. They said they would shut down my computer for 60 days if I did not pay. I still did not pay and a week later my laptop was shut down completely. i bought the laptop through Best Buy/Geek Squad and need assistance restoring my computer. Please assist in any way you can. Thanks,Hans Christenson
I replaced my hard drive a while back because my old one was dying. I wasn’t able to uninstall Webroot when I still had access and coming back now I don’t think it can boot up into windows at all. Is there at all a way to strike that instance off and recover my key to use elsewhere?.
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”?
My dad has Webroot on his PC, but he decided he no longer wanted it. He uninstalled it, but continued to get popups about the software.He has also tried:Removing the software from his registry files based on instructions from a forum post Removing other traces of the software manually from his computer Getting help from Geeksquad who tried helping for 3+ hours to no avail This morning, not only is Webroot not yet gone, it ran a scan on his computer.Could someone point me to a thorough uninstallation guide to remove every trace of the program? Or is there an easier way to do it in one shot?
