Webroot Secureanyhere and Online Gaming
Hi there, I have been using Webroot for a while now, and mostly I find it a nice addition to my security suite, however one BIG problem I have comes from the Identity protection module. When ever I am playing online games that rely on keystroke input, if I tab to another window and tab back in, my game will process several key inputs that I did not play, the biggest offenders for this are World of Warcraft and Destiny 2, but I have seen the problem with other mmos and online games. Specifically it seems this issue is to do with the way identity protection encrypts keystrokes, turning off identity protection completely resolves the issue, however, since I am paying for software with one of its main selling points being identity protection I would appreciate a better solution. Yes I have made exceptions for the game exe files and such as the first line support will suggest, I have tested this with multiple games and with multiple combinations of software running in the backgroun
I have received information regarding the software on my system:A large number of temporary files have been found (248MB - Windows/IE only) An active process has a possible memory leak (firefox.exe) An active process has a possible handle leak (Dropbox.exe).Should I be concerned? How do I go about resolving the issue?Thanks in advance!
WRDll.x86.dll and Microsoft Visual Studio issue
I am developing Visual Studio C# applications. When I rebuild the projectand run it in debug mode, the debugger will not step into the project because it’s trying to load WRDll.x86.dll symbols.If I run the project without debugging, it runs fine. And if I wait a period of time , I can run the project in debugger mode, but as soon as I recompile the project, it gives me the message that it’s trying to load WRDLL.x86.dll and won’t step into the debugger.It’s as if Webroot detects the project as a new executable and won’t run it in the debugger, but then after a period of time (30 minutes or an hour) it allows it to run in the debugger.Or it is as if there’s a background process in WebRoot that hangs, and causes Visual Studio debugger to not work, and when the process terminates or get recycled, then Visual Studio works.Any idea how to fix this strange problem?I’m using Visual Studio 2013, Update 4
Webroot Client issue
When clicking the “See the Report”, “Managing Password”, “My Account”, and etc buttons. The functions do not launch. I was busy printing a report from Firefox (IPVM site) when a window change request poped up, which I assumed was adobe wanting to write the PDF to the folder. Immediatly after that I received a warning message from windows security app… Any assistnace will be appreciated.
Account Verification: missing answers to three questions...
Hi, i’m stuck in a frustrating loop. I need help resetting my 2FA, since i lost my device… choosing ‘lost device’ redirects me to a link requiring to answer three questions i cannot remember setting… and below that it says: need help? Contact support. But you can only get support AFTER login, which i cannot do, obviously. Reaching support by phone is not possible… so now what? Any ideas? In short: i’m stuck on step 6 of this post: https://community.webroot.com/general-security-information-102/how-to-access-your-console-when-your-smart-device-is-missing-and-2fa-is-enabled-340981 Kind regards, Jevos

Webroot is showing it is infected? Now what?
We received a popup warning from our Webroot that it is infected. How is this possible? We’ve run deep scans, Windows Defender, and downloaded and run the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool. Even though Webroot eventually showed 2 threats removed, the warning shows up again. Now what?
what happens to my webroot-LastPass account if my webroot subscription expires?
I’m not sure about renewing Webroot, but all my passwords are on my webroot-LastPass account. Wouldn’t want to lose any of that! So, what happens to my webroot-LastPass account if my webroot subscription expires? Can I just subscribe to LastPass directly?

WRData folder is 65gb
I had a quick search around for a solution to this, but the posts I found were 8 and 6 years old and like 9 pages long… So I’m hoping this problem has been fixed since then. The WRData directory is 65.1gb in size, with 3 files alone between 15-20gb each. (and all dated in the last week) Can someone tell me what these files are for? And can I just delete them?
Trying to create LastPass account
I’m trying to create a LastPass account. My WebRoot console has a “Manage Passwords” button which takes me to a LastPass account setup page. But when I click on the “Get Started” link and enter my WebRoot credentials (as it requests), it won’t accept them. Instead, I get “Please review the information you entered and try again.” What’s up?
Webroot and a new android phone
Sooner or later I know I will have to get a new phone. I could even drop it, lose it or who knows, or it could just fail unexpectedly. I know at some point Webroot had me set up 2 factor authentication using Google authenticator. Maybe it’s required for when you login to your console. I don’t remember. Or maybe I activated it on my own. I don’t recall. But I don’t think so. It wasn’t until just recently that I really understood what it was all for (using an app like this. I understood what the text messages were for.In any case, I’m wondering what you have to do to move it to a new phone. Every time when I’ve gotten a new phone, they moved the number to the new phone and then the old one quit working.So I’m wondering how you manage this… for when the day finally comes.I’m wondering the same thing about google accounts as well.Thanks.
Hi guys, So this is something odd. I was renewing my license on my computer. I accidentally typed the last digit wrong and it gave me an error (as expected). I then typed it correctly but I added 2 extra digits just in case to the end just to see what happens. But it still activiated... which is odd. But on the app, the correct license was showing with out the 2 extra digits. So it seems that even if you add extra digits to the end of the license, as long as everything before is correct, the app will accept the license.WR devs, can you confirm? Best.

Is that True ?Also, I like to know Inside the System Optimizer what to check and which one not to check. Here is the Screen-ShotsThank you very much.
Hi there Just a random Q here, when purchasing the software, the extra Software CD is that necessary? I have a laptop with no cd drive, but I figure it would be for desktops later on for extra users. So, is it a physical cd or just the software download? Just want to find out if I should get the extra Software CD or not. Hope this makes sense lol. Thanks
After installing Webroot, I was no longer able to access Google Chrome. I added chrome.exe as “allow” under PC Security which now lets me open a chrome browser. However, I am not able to access any links in Microsoft Outlook. I’m not even able to access the “Visit User Guide” or “Learn More” in the Webroot app itself. The cursor just spins for a moment then ….nothing. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
