How does a six-minute Webroot scan complete in less than one minute?
I am not sure Webroot is truly working properly on my computer. I have already uninstalled and reinstalled it more than once and the same thing continues to occur. Using today as an example, this is what happens when I turn on my computer the first time in a given day (laptop running Windows 10):I pressed the power button. Then, I entered my Windows password. As soon as the desktop screen popped up, I opened the Webroot product window, which showed that less than five minutes earlier, a scan of 6 minutes and 24 seconds was completed and that the next scan will occur in 24 hours. How is this possible when the computer has only been turned on for less than two minutes?In the past, I noticed that when I hovered over the icon for Webroot right after turning on my computer (the one on the desktop page's taskbar, to the right of the arrow for the hidden icons), it would show it was scanning. More recently, I noticed this was no longer happening -- and, that when I open the product window, I

Webroot blocking Chrome cos it does not trust it.
For the past couple of weeks I have been getting alerts on my laptop from Webroot telling me that it’s blocking this or that app from linking to the Internet because it does not trust the apps.The silly part of this is that it is telling me that it does not trust apps such as Chrome or apps that come as part of the Win 10 package. Examples below.It takes three or four clicks on the “Always allow” button to get rid of the alert.The next day it comes back again.Okay, so it’s not a fatal problem, but is very irritating. And plainly there is something wrong.Does anyone know how to fix this? Alternatively, does anyone know how to get the attention of Support, who so far have not bothered to respond?
Erroneous message stating Webroot subscription is expired
I have been using the WebRoot PC security software for six years and renewing on a yearly basis. I recently renewed for 1 year in January 2023. Suddenly in late February 2023, a message is displayed on the WebRoot console message window stating that the subscription is expired, even though the status window still shows that the subscription is “Active” and the pc is “Protected”. A second popup window also shows the subscription expired, renew now message. I contacted customer support and the agent, although friendly, was unable to solve the issue. He wanted to “remote in” to my computer, which I was extremely leery of. He finally told me to ignore the erroneous messages as long as the software was running ok. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to get rid of the erroneous message?
Web Threat Shield Chrome Extension errors when emulating iOS devices
Repro for this error is very simple: open Chrome with Web Threat Shield extension installed, F12 to open dev tools, CTRL+SHIFT+M for emulator, choose any iOS device, reload page, extension file content_scripts/main.js:17 throws ‘Uncaught ReferenceError: browser is not defined’.A minor annoyance, but one I’d be very grateful for a fix for. Sorry if this is in the wrong sub-forum, I wasn’t sure which was most appropriate.
Webroot locked new created or modified files and/or folders
Hi. We have installed Webroot on over 100 machines in our company, and only a few have issues with newly created or modified files.Webroot locks the newly created file and doesn't allow it to open until rebooting the computer.I found this topic (Windows 10 Fall Creator Update - Bug Fix | Webroot Community) where you describe the same issue and want to know if it must be fixed by patch or if it is already included in new versions because this topic was created five years ago. Thank you.
What if I don't upgrade?
Hello. I am one, of the reportedly few people, that has not upgraded to Windows 10, when given the opportunity, and remained with 8.1.I avoid the tile system and installed Classic Shell, in this way my system resembles the old beloved Window XP or 7, systems and I am happy with it.I am not interested in the new features, offered by the new OS’s, I am using the laptop mainly for email and web browsing and the desktop with VS 2019 for a multi-year sw project, plus some OpenOffice sometimes. All these applications will continue to work, but as you know, the support for Windows 8.1 will end Jan 10th , so I am faced with the option, and the burden, of upgrading or not.What we are told is that our system will be much more vulnerable without the security upgrade from MS, but I say “don't I have WSA?”What do I have WSA for what? Can't I count only on the protection offered by WSA, plus the firewall, plus the router?The problem is complicated also because i have an incompatible hw, with Window

I'm not Japanese
Hello. When I click on a button in the main window to discover something on the site, the interface is displayed on the website in Japanese. Previously it worked fine and the site language was Russian. I have not changed anything in the language settings. Example if i click on "Advanced" button (look at screenshot). What's the problem?

Whitelisting Network Folders
Is it possible to whitelist network folders to exclude files opened from those locations from scanning? It seems fairly straightforward in terms of implementation. But, I’m just fishing for any gotchas I may not be considering. Essentially, we have some engineers complaining about WRSA.exe slowing down Solidworks when they’re opening large files that live in a network share mounted with a drive letter.

MsiInstaller error code 1013 every 15 minutes after updating new keycode
I am getting this MsiInstaller error code 1013 every 15 minutes on both Windows 10 computers. It happened soon after updating Webroot with new key code. Have done this in years past and no problems. Can’t seem to get any support from Webroot when I click on “Help and Support” nothing happens.So to test my theory Webroot was the problem, I got both laptop and desktop (both Windows 10 with current updates) and was watching via computer management screen the error mention above happen every 15 minutes on both computers. On laptop I removed Webroot and started using Microsoft default virus software. No more errors have occurred on laptop for last 2 ½ hours. Still getting errors on desktop. Also, noticed something I don’t remember seeing before and that is a little padlock on the Webroot tray icon. Maybe it’s always been there ? I did set Webroot not to auto update, that hasn’t made any difference. More of the error code info is below: Product: Core -- Unable to install
Webroot SecureAnywhere auto restarts itself after manual shutdown
Hello, So i've never had this problem before. It has just recently started. It has happened a few times. Everytime i perform a manual shutdown on Webroot it stops. A few seconds later it just auto activates itself and comes online again. I've tried going into task manager and stop Webroot processes after i've performed a manual shutdown, it didn't solve the issue. Any help would be great. Thanks

Trojan Not Detected
A trojan has appeared on my computer and periodically opens up a sys32 box on my screen. Every time this happens, Webroot warns me that there is an active threat named “TrojanDownloader” and a scan is needed to remove it. However, every time I scan immediately after the warning, nothing is ever found and Webroot tells me everything is fine. I know this isn’t true because the trojan continuously opens the black box every hour or so, yet Webroot tells me everything is fine.How can I remove this trojan?
Account may be listed under old email address, and I can't access
I have had a Webroot account for years, and I can no longer find my password. I have just purchased new computers and want to add them to my account and delete old computers. Plus, I suspect I may have multiple accounts linked to an old email address that we no longer use. How can I find out?
Webroot Software Download on HP AMD Ryzen 3
I just purchased an HP AMD Ryzen 3, and along with it, Webroot internet security w/ antivirus protection. When I try to download the software, I'm prompted to switch out of S mode (which I won't be able to return to), or find a similar app in the store. How do I correctly download the software I purchased without messing up my brand new computer?
Subscripton Renewal Email from Geek Squad/Best Buy - Real or Scam?
Has anyone else received an email from Best Buy/Geek Squad stating that their WebRoot anti-virus software will automatically be credited? I tried to get a response from BestBuy, but their online tech named Kasey said it was a scam and that I would need to pay the full $49.99, and not the $29.99 stated in the email. I was a bit disappointed in their reply. I realize that WebRoot is not BestBuy or the Geek Squad, but WebRoot has partnered with them so hopefully someone from WebRoot or a user in the community can respond to my question and concern. Has anyone else received this type of email and did your subscription renew automatically? Thank you. PS: If someone from WebRoot would like to see the original email, I would be glad to forward to your security department.
