Lately when opening some particular web pages, IE11 becomes unresponsive, and I can't click on any links. After a few seconds IE11 starts working again. Disabling the filtering Extension immediately correct the issue on all pc's (four)
A example www.rtlnews.nl (a dutch online newssite)
Uninstalling en reinstalling Webroot Secure Anywhere Antivirus 184.108.40.206 doesn't solve the problem
No other security product installed
Webroot Filtering Extension 220.127.116.11
I already opend a support ticket.
To me it looks like Webroot Filtering Extension can't handle the many external links that are embedded.

Now let's see about the other systems....
NOTE: There was one report today of a problem with the Filter Extension on Mac with the newly released OS on Safari. I am assuming this will not impact you though!
Using FireFox 33.
I'm going to disable this plug in and see if this issue stops, although like a said...it is intermittent.
WIn 7 64bit
Eset Node 32
Does one really need it to be protected by Webroot when I have ZA and Eset?
1) It identifies and blocks malicious websites
2) When you use a search engine, it is the Filter Extension that provides the 'green checks' as well as the yellow cautions and red warnings for search results indicating the reputation of the websites, so you can avoid sites known to be malicious.
Do the other programs mentioned ALSO have browser plug-ins that do essentially the same thing? That in itself could be the cause of the issue: too many extensions doing the same thing and may simply be interfering with each other.
As a matter of fact I do. I also have the WOT plug in.
Funny thing about WOT and Webroot's...they don't always agree. Sometimes WOT will have a caution and Webroot will have the Green check or vise versa.
Don't know who to believe.
Guess I'll leave Webroot out of the equation for a while to see what happens.
When it is out of sight/out of mind...it may be hard to remember but I'll try to remember and report back.
In addition, I might also just do the reverse as well and disable WOT in favor of Webroot. We will see.
Recently installed WSA and ha several problems with firefox becoming unresponsive to mouseovers/clicks of hyperlinks/tab changes. I kind of tend to overdo it with tabs (usually have 8+ open, several of which with flash content), but didn't have problems of this type until changing internet security programs.
Usually encounter the problem when navigating ad-bloated garbage slideshow list articles like those on egokick.com or clipd.com, with several embedded flash video ads that you can't stop (10 Fascinating Facts About Stephen Colbert - Answers.com , for example). The tab with the offensive site isn't the one that freezes up, but rather one that I go to from there. Without warning, the tab I'm on behaves as if its waiting to connect, or for content to load: I can scroll with my mousewheel, but cannot click links, change tabs, or close the program. I try closing the flashplayerplugin execuable from task manager (am I the only one that has two at a time there?), but to no effect.
The webroot browser extension could very well be protecting me from nasty annoying stuff, but it'd eb nice if it didn't do so in a way that breaks my browser =)
Full disclosure: I have also recently updated my graphics driver (automatic update), have a windows update waiting, and the Java update notifications that always used to annoy the hell out of me are curiously absent...so there could be some other things going on that aren't helping. (Did I mention my system avctually hard locked when testing the site to refresh my memory for this post? That ain't normal.)
Using Windows 7(64-bit), firefox 33.1, and most recent version of the flash player plugin.
