Hi BruceHayhurst1
Welcome to the Community Forums.
If I may just add here...please click on 'Adavnced Settings' (in the main app right hand corner) and then on the 'Scan Settings' tab and check the condition of the 'Enable rootkit detection' option.

It is possible that it may be 'Off'. If so then switch 'On' and retry your scan.

Hello BruceHayhurst1
Welcome to the Webroot Community,
May I ask how do you know you have a Rootkit? And does Webroot complete it's scan (100%) Because it is normal for Webroot to jump though these scans. As explained here
Please have a look here as well
