Hi, I have been recently noticing my Task Manager showing my disk use is 100% and in red.
I click on it to see whats using up the disk the most and it shows Webroot SecureAnywhere, I tryed to end the task and it didnt stop.
I also have "Allow Secure Anywhere to be shutdown manually" Checked in.
How do I shut down webroot secureanywhere? I finally gave up and went to these fourms, I cant have 100% disk usage on this all the time.

Enter your username or e-mail address. We'll send you an e-mail with instructions to reset your password.
If you want to shutdown WSA completely (not advised but sometimes useful for a 'reboot', i.e., close it down and the restart it immediatley afterwards)...you should righ click on the system tray icon, select 'Shutdown Protection', confirm that you want to shutdown Webroot, enter the CAPTCHA code presented to you and that should do it.
But remember that if you do then unless you have another security app running you are unprotected for as long as WSA is shutdown...so I would restart it by cicking the desktop icon, and then check if you are getting the same symptoms of 100% disk usuage.
Just a thought/possible avenue of exploration.
Also, the used space may very well be the result of the monitoring and associated roll-back ability. I may be mistaken, but there may be a way to force an end of monitoring certain files/processes and allow the removal of the storage associated with it.
As this is a Security suite, disabling it would defeat the purpose and for that reason, unless I am mistaken, not actually possible for any length of time.
What you're seeing is not normal behavior. Please submit a support ticket so that we can look over your logs and investigate this further.
In the mean time just explain how do I remove this program.
"If someone can't remove WSA because it's not listed in Programs & Features or All Programs use this in the Commandline or Run Dialog: "C:Program FilesWebrootWRSA.exe" –uninstall making sure that it is run in an elevated Command Prompt/Run as Administrator!"
