good morning, Daniel and Sherry, well it didn't work pop up messages are back, to recap with webroot removed and windows defender running no pop up messages ,but then turn off windows defender and reinstall webroot then messages come back that say windows defender and webroot are both turned off, next thing I was going to try is remove webroot then let windows defender start up again, then shut down windows defender then install a different program like Avast or Eset to see how windows 10 reacts to these programs, thoughts ? thanks Scott, I will be in and out today so I will check for messages through out the day, both of you have a good day, Scott.

Hi Sherry, here is the what I did today, I installed Sophos home antivirus and turned off windows defender and no pop up messages for two hours, so now I removed Sophos and Windows defender is on again, I will wait till I hear from you or Daniel before I put Webroot back so that if there is anything different you want me to try, let me know thanks, Scott.

Hi Scott
 
I have two upgraded devices; one from Windows 7 (a Desktop system) & the other from WIndows 8.1 (a tablet device). The former is Ethernet connected to my router the latter uses WiFi...none are exhibiting the issue. :$
 
There seems to be no rhyme nor reason as to what device it strikes...there obviously must be something but nothing that is apparent to us at present. :(

Scott...I wouldn't think that would matter with whether you had an upgrade or clean install

? Scott can you please Submit a Support Ticket to Webroot so they can get this documented? Before you do that can you please have WSA installed and running and do a few scans and reboot then run this Log Gathering Tool and put the same email address in that you will contact support with and in the ticket tell them you have uploaded WSAlogs as well as the link to this thread!

Daniel , new issue popped up in event viewer ? thoughts thanks Scott.


That's from the Webroot Web URL Filter Extension that should be installed in IE, Chrome and Firefox but I wouldn't worry about that as i see it once in awhile.

Again not all of us are having this issue and it's because of some Cumulative Updates for Windows 10 Version 1511 and changes in the system API's. Sorry I can't say more but Webroot is working on it! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Application_programming_interface

Thanks Daniel for the added information! 😉

Unfortunately the Webroot uninstaller does not completely remove ALL Webroot Registry entries. I have uninstalled the program several times in the last few weeks and there are two or three entries that constantly remain in the registry. I have previously reported this to Support. While it is not unusual for some entries to remain when a program has been uninstalled, many antivirus programs DO provide a total uninstall application.
Being leaders in the field I would expect that our uninstaller should uninstall the program completely! Some of these leftover registry entries may be affecting the uninstall/reinstall process.
We cannot expect a Novice to be tinkering with the Registry.
Yesterday @ 1030h I decided to uninstall using Revo uninstaller pro in the ADVANCED mode, which removed all traces of Webroot from the Registry, and 15 to 20 entries from %appdata% Microsoft Edge. Restarted after uninstalling, Re-installed Webroot and let it complete the initial scan and restarted again.
Am once again monitoring for the security notice!

Hi Lyle
 
Whilst what you say is true the remining entries should not in general cause any issues. This has been noted in previous discussions and personally I have never noticed that there has been an issue following an uninstall. Having said that using Revo is a useful move if one just wants to make sure...but really it should not cause any issues.

Hi Scott,
 
Well the next release is what it means as Webroot is always updating the Client see here for the last few updates: http://www.webroot.com/us/en/support/support-consumer-release-notes and I would assume us Beta testers will get it before it is released. I see you haven't gone into the Beta Group as ? has givin you access and a BETA keycode. If you want to chat send me a IM: https://community.webroot.com/t5/notes/privatenotespage/tab/compose/note-to-user-id/758
 
Thanks,

Hi JohnWR
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
As far as we know WSA's operation is not affected and it is mainly an issue with communication with the Security Centre but if you have any cocnerns you can Open a Support Ticket to put the question directly to the Support Team who will be pleased to advise accordingly.
 
In addition you can also check via the Task Manager (right click on the Desktop task bar and select 'Task Manager', making sure that in the bottom left hand corner it says 'Fewer details') to see if yo are seeing these two WSA-related entries under the Processes tab:
 


 
If they are there and running then my considered view would be that WSA is active and protecting you...but as I said...if in doubt, contact the Support Team.

No worries John, gald to be able to help. Hopefully it is just a matter of time for the Webroot Support Team to sort this out, which apparentlyis of Microsoft's doing due to some changes they made duringt he last main update of Windows.

But, popcorn, what is making it difficult for the Support Team as that no all of are suffering from this unfortunate issue...if we all where then a fix would be easier to come by but when only some users have the issue then it takes more time to resolve given that one does not want to provide a fix for the affected that resolve it for them only to cause a further issues for others who do not have the original issue.
 
Not easy whichever way one looks at things. :(

Hi kliebor
 
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.

😉 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!

:DThankts for the reply.  I hope it is a final solution for me.  I was thinking it is windows 10 that is turning Webroot off, maby in my case.

Sorry,  please what is WSA?

Thanks no need to apologize I am just learning.  I also think in my case it might  be my computer acting up.
