When I booted up my computer today, I got a pop up that said there was a file or folder on my computer called "C:program" and that it could cause programs not to run correctly and that renaming it to "C:program1" would fix the issue. I didn't know what the file or folder was or where it came from so I didn't know what to do so I said ignore. (Right before I clicked IGNORE, I noticed that Webroot wasn't in my task bar. I thought great, because my backup was running and I couldn't really restart just then.) When I clicked on ignore, another pop up came up and it asked if I wanted to allow Webroot to make changes to this computer. I said yes, and then the icon showed up in the task bar. I then looked for the file or folder. I was searching for "C:Programs" but it was really a file "Programs" in the C: root. I then right clicked on it and said to scan with webroot and it said it was clean. But then the popup came up again asking me if I wanted to allow Webroot to make changes to this compu
Today, Webroot CPU usage and memory spiked to 75 and 90 percent making my PC unusable. I rebooted and it got worse. I can only have 1 tab open in my browser at a time now or 1 app open. I tried everything to get rid of it and it’s only taking up more CPU and memory. Please help. Things I’ve tried:Uninstalling via Control Panel : this launches the uninstaller, but doesn't actually do anything.Running "C:\Program Files (x86)\Webroot\WRSA.exe" –uninstall: Same behavior as above.Running "C:\Program Files (x86)\Webroot\WRSA.exe" –uninstall in safe mode: This actually launched the install process asking for a valid key?Deleting "C:\Program Files (x86)\Webroot\" : says WRSA.exe is in use so it won't delete. Tried this in Safe Mode also.Killing WRSA.exe with Process Explorer AS ADMIN: access denied error.Terminating WRSA.exe with Process HackerRunning a Webroot uninstall script
I recently restarted (Feb. 9th 2018) Google Chrome to let it update; however, I suddenly got the Webroot Filtering Extension when I do not own it. It says that my company put it there, but I am a student on my home computer that I built myself. Extremely confused as to why Webroot Filtering is there now. Wondering how to get rid of it.

I hope in the next version of webroot secure anywhere you include a password manager extension for google chome since lastpass already works with chrome, Also regarding the firefox addon, is there anyway you can make it persistant so if I uninstall and reinstall firefox I do not have to redownload and run the fix again to re add it? Thanks
I've noticed two instances of "Webroot Installer" in my Startup programs in the task manager on Windows 8. Both appear identical and are listed as High Startup Impact. The program named in Properties is wruninstall.exe. What are they for? Why are there two? Can they safely be disabled? Thanks.
The difference between a 'deep' scan and a 'full' scanKnowledge Base
[h2]Question[/h2]What's the technical difference between a deep scan and a full scan? [h2]Answer[/h2][h3][b]Deep scan:[/b][/h3]This is the normal, default scan mode. Webroot SecureAnywhere (WSA) inspects system configuration information (registry and file locations, running processes, loaded modules, etc) to determine what is loaded into memory, and what definitely will or is likely to load into memory during normal computer use. These files are then initially scanned by generating an MD5 hash of the full file and submitting it to the cloud system. If the item is known as [i]Good,[/i] this data is cached and no further action is taken. If the file is known as [i]Bad[/i], it is inspected more deeply, interdicted if currently in memory, and the cleanup engine is brought into play to start keeping track as the scan continues. If the file is reported as [i]Unknown[/i], it has further information gathered about it and submitted to t

Prompted by [url=https://community.webroot.com/t5/Ideas-Exchange/Backing-Up-PDF-Files/idi-p/22396]this idea[/url] to automatically sync PDF files, Webroot is investigating the possibility of adding additional file types to the default options presented on the Backup & Sync setup screen. Currently, the default file types are as follows: [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/2652iAC02D16938ACF9E2.png[/img] By selecting "Custom filter," a Backup & Sync user can already manually add any file type or create a *.* filter to sync all file types. However, for convenience, Webroot presents Backup & Sync users with commonly used default options for file types. There are likely many other commonly used file types that would fit into these categories which Webroot does not currently automatically sync. The "PDF" idea will result in a new file type - *.pdf - being added to the Document files list. As long as w

Hello forumfolks! Yesterday I bought Webroot Anywhere Complete, cause I thought it would be even better than my trusted security program (don't know if it's allowed, so I won't mention the name of the program) and because I can do without spam control and parental control. Really don't need these 2 features. But as it seems, I'm going to miss my trusted security program, because Webroot is giving me troubles, namely with it's toolbar. I'm using Internet Explorer 9 and every time I'm logging in a red bar appears, after a few seconds, telling me that my server connection is disabled (error 10) and I have to shut this bar down manually before I can go on surfing with my logged in toolbar. Another pet peeve is the fact that I have to log in my Webroot toolbar every time I open my browser, to be able to use the password manager. My trusted other security program was much better at that point, cause I only had to log in the first time I opened my browser and then it just stayed that way unti
Last year I complained about the BestBuy Webroot renewal process. It goes pretty much like this: Your Webroot security panel turns Yellow 30 days before the expiration. There is a link to renew. But even if you click it and enter your credit information it will make no difference in what will transpire. I know. I've been through this at least 5 or 6 times. As your deadline approaches, you will start to get renewal notices...even though you've already clicked on the link and said you want to renew...and even if BestBuy has sent you an email saying that they will renew your subscription with the card they have on file. During the last week you will start to get more urgent prompts warning you that your subscription is about to expire and renew now (even though you already said you wanted to.) Finally your panel will turn red and it will say that it is expired. If you call the Geek Squad, they will say that you are still protected. That there is a
Using WSA Complete 184.108.40.206 - no other security software active (MalwareBytes installed but is stand alone, free version) I get no indicators on any search (Bing, Yahoo, Google, etc.) with any browser (IE11, FF25.0.1, Chrome31). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
