Webroot does not scan at set time i've set up through settings. It appears to scan when computer is taken out of sleep mode. It will also open several scans per day.

Welcome to the Community Forums.
Would you please click on 'Advanced Setting' (top right hand corner of the main app panel and then on the 'Scheduler' tab
and let us know what your settings are especially in the case of the ones that I have boxed in RED.
We should be able to tell from that why what is happening is happening.
- Run immediately at startup if SecureAnywhere misses a scheduled activity
- Don't perform scheduled activity when on battery power
- Don't perform scheduled activity when a full screen application or game is open
Is there anyway you can take a snapshot of the page you see? You can use Windows Snipping Tool if you have Vista or higher versions of Windows see here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-ca/windows/use-snipping-tool-capture-screen-shots#1TC=windows-10 and here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-ca/windows/snipping-tool-faq#1TC=windows-7
This is how mine is setup as I want it to scan at 1PM daily and no other time also I see the Scan screen pop-up when it does!
Welcome to the Webroot Community,
I have the same setup that you have. Have you tried the Reset Schedule? My Webroot on my Mac will scan upon boot up. And if I don't reboot which I hardly do reboot. It will scan at 3:00 PM. I do not have an issue with scanning after my Mac awakes from sleep.
I can't tell you why Webroot scans after sleep mode. and not at a scheduled time. My Webroot is scanning now at 3 PM.
Please have a look at the Mac User Guide
I would say that you could Submit a Suupport Ticket and they will have a look for free of charge beecause Webroot shouldn't be scanning that many times. At least mine doesn't.. I don't know if a uninstall/clean reinstall would fix this.
Hoped I helped out somewhat.
I was just wondering how long does it take to scan with Webroot? My scanning time is usually 45-60 mins. Of course this varies with other Macs. Just curious...
For me i usually average around 3minutes and if i do it the custom way and simply scan everything then i'm at 1hr and a roughly 40 minutes
Want to do the Math? LOLs
I've always have a Full Scan..
About another 35 minutes maybe this scan will be done!
