Webroot runs FOREVER on Win10 Startup

I have a 16GB 2TB SSD Win10Pro 64bit chip and OS.

Webroot always (!!) runs forever on restart or cold-boot.  What’s “forever” or couple hours +++.  Via Task Manager I can’t stop  it; I can’t re-prioritize it; I can’t pause it; I can’t do anything but reboot then it goes on its sucking up my CPU 100%++ and slowing my SSD down to an absolute crawl.  I am beginning to intensely hate Webroot inspite of many great things it has done for me in the past many,many years.

So,I did modify my Startup options and things are better..  a little but I have NO, (ZILCH, NADA) trust in Webroot  at Startup anymore!!!!!

First, how can I terminate it when it’s running since I have Admin privileges but not the Admin?

I turned off these and Restarted:

Webroot Installer (got reset to ON after my restart): High Impact

Webroot Installer (got reset to ON after my restart)  Why do I have TWO  listed?: High Impact

Webroot SecureAnywhere (still turned off but the Webroot System Tray icon is ‘active’ afaik)
