Webroot turned off , showing message numerous times on slide in notification action center
this problem has been going on for about a week, I think since Microsoft last Windows 10 update on 3/1, security center shows Webroot on and OK, but numerous times during the day on the desktop the slide in notification for action center shows webroot and windows defender turned off click to check security center , I have tried removing webroot completly and reinstalled webroot, tried changing security center in services to auto restarted didn't work, then back to delay start didn't work messages still keep coming , not sure what else to try, it seems numerous windows 10 webroot users are having this problem,and I already put in four message for tech support but no answers yet, any thoughts on this different from what I have tried will help , thanks.

This is the third day I haven't got notification that Webroot turned off was there a fix for this? I did do somethig different it may or may not did any impact on the notifications here it goes. When I boot up my pc I got Failure to connect to windows services. I found the solution to this problem on the internet. Go to Start type command prompt then Right click - click on run as a administrator - type netsh winsock reset Restart computer. And since I did this I had no more notification saying Webroot turned off. Maby that was my problem worth a try. Cheers!
Well I tried this and rebooted and it is blessedly silent!!!!
Thank goodness I can now open webroot, browse the web and do all the normal things I do without a stack of 30+ check your antivirus messages. It is good so far for 2 hours, here's hoping it stays good...
I do hope that it gets sorted out sooner rather than later.
You are welocme..but it's hard to say what the issue is..because there are some with this issue and others not as we have said. But I do have 3 systems running 10 and I have not seen this occuring. Lucky me...I am sure this is frustrating to all who haven't a solution yet. So I hope your PC stays working. ;)
All very unsatisfactory...but then that is the nature of these sorts of issue...unfortunately. But I am sure that the Support Team will sort it in the end. ;)
At this point anything is worth a try for those with this issue. I am happy it works for you. As I still haven't had any issues with my W 10 notifications from the Securiy Center!
Completely agree..and also makes the determination of the issue and then the fix so much harder to undertake as one has to be careful that the fix does not break anything re. those not experiencing the current issue.
Thanks for your offer of information...I am sure that the Support Team will appreciate any additional input that may help. If you do have something to submit then please get it to the Support Team directly by Opening a Support Ticket to pass on the details.
And keep watching in the Community for news of a permanent fix.
Not easy whichever way one looks at things. :(
