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)
