Tonight I renewed my WSA licence. I tried to enter the new code on the previous version and the app kept crashing so I clicked on download from the email. It downloaded the wsamac.dmg files. I clicked on it and tried to open Webroot. It will not open. There is an icon on the bottom task bar and when I click on it, it does nothing. If I click on WebrootSecureAnywhere (on the top menu bar) nothing happens. There is no drop down menu. It does nothing when I click on it. Can someone direct me what to do to uninstall this thing and hopefully try again otherwise I’ve wasted money on something I can’t fix. I’m not exactly tech savvy but I know enough to hopefully follow directions to fix this. All other articles have said to Click on the top menu and click on uninstall. I do not have that option. I’ve put the application in the trash several times and every time I try again it won’t open. Thanks inadvance.
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?
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
Our subscription was automatically renewed several days ago and since then the Webroot on each device is returning a message that the keycode is expired and would we like to renew. Saying yes to the option simply takes us to the browser page for payment for a new product. The keycode in our main web console is showing as active with 360+ days left. I tried uninstalling Webroot on my PC and then re-installing and of course when it asks for the keycode it is coming up with the same expired message. I have started a ticket with Webroot support but not getting any response - what can i do from here?
When I run the System Optimizer, Webroot deletes my selected Quick Access folders and replaces them with the default WIN10 Quick Access folders. I have looked through all Webroot settings to stop this from happening but haven’t had any success. Is there a way to keep the System Optimizer from deleting Quick Access folders? I would like to keep my Quick Access folders undisturbed. Thanks!
Hi WR Team, I hope all is well. I ran into this test online and I would just like to get your opinion on tests like these. The tester even admitted that he’s not aware of how Webroot does things. He scans a folder of malware samples and from my understanding not all of the samples were detected/eliminated. Which is why he runs a secondary scanner with detected files. Knowing that Webroot doesn’t focus too much on dormant files (which is essentially harmless until executed), this is pretty expected. I would like to bring to your attention the ransomware portion. Is there something the tester did/didn’t do to why the ransomware wasn’t prevent? PS. I love Webroot. I love the utilities and the concept behind this product. I also want to support this product especially since its based in US. I’m bringing this test to your attention because I want to see the product evolve and improve. Hope this helps grow and improve this awesome product. Cheers.
I have tried for over a week to get Webroot Support to respond to my problem. Its been about a a year since using the web console, and I am unable to recall the security code. Our owner has decided that if Webroot will not respond, we need to cancel our subscription and remove the software. However, it appears you need to get to the web console to remove the Webroot software from each PC. Anyone know how to a) get Support to respond to tickets submitted (5 times in the last week), and b) delete Webroot account if you can’t log into the web console?
Hi WR Team/Community, I hope all is well. So there’s something I noticed when adding Edge Chrome to the app protection under the ID shield of WRSA. Every time there’s a new update to Edge, you need to manually add Edge Chrome again to the app protection. I have a feeling this is Edge being weird but it has happened 3 times already on 2 different computers. Can you guys take a look into this? Thank you.
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?
I don't have the money to renew my subscription right now, and I'd rather not outright uninstall Webroot since I plan to renew later, but even after turning off "show a status notification screen on bootup" in the advanced settings, I still get a popup regularly telling me to "save now". Is there a way to block these without outright uninstalling?
I am trying to set up my VPN for a company which I am going to be servicing. How can I set this up without uninstalling my Webroot software? I am getting a windows defender error. My defender is open and my webroot is operating properly. How can I set up the VPN without removing my webroot.
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?
Last night the applications on my PC started to hang, I couldn’t even get the PC to shutdown, I had to physically shut it down. The only odd things I noticed were that webroot was running at a constant 11-12% cpu, and a bit earlier there had been a new message pop-up, asking for permission to run \webroot\wrsa.exe -ls (I said yes). Again this morning Excel hung as I was trying to use it, Outlook also hung. So I tried shutting everything down to reboot. I managed to kill all apps but everything was super slow - even selecting shutdown from the start menu. Even once shutdown was selected it wasn’t shutting down. Again I looked in task manager, and webroot was at 11-12% cpu. I right clicked on the webroot icon, and chose to shutdown protection. Almost immediately the PC shut down (indicating that it was webroot that was interfering with the shutdown) Even though I’ve just rebooted I got 2 more pop ups during this asking for permission to run WRSA and it’s again running at 11-12% cpu
Hello Community, I went thru the registration and account creation process on the site; http://my.webrootanywhere.com; after successfully registering and creating my account I attempted to login to http://my.webrootanywhere.com (I also have 2FA enabled); as soon as I enter my email address, userid password and then my 2FA code the site flashes the following error: “You have been logged out. Again I am trying to login to http://my.webrootanywhere.com so I have no idea when I am trying to login into the site it logs me out. Any suggestions of how to resolve this error. I tried IE, Firefox and MS Edge on either laptoop, tablet, phone, Mac or Windows OS and still having the same issue. Regards.
