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.

Lets see over the next few days to see if the other AV's are reporting the same. Mine is still working fine and I wonder why some are affected and others are not?
I'm not sure I can answer that as I feel Daniel can better advise you if you should install a different AntiVirus for testing. Normally we just work with Webroot. But lets wait and see..
Thanks for checking that all out for us.
Well that's interesting...I quess the best thing to do is wait for Daniel...I just don't understand why some of us get these popup sa Daniel, Baldrick and myself have not gotten these pop ups.
I'm just wondering if you went here to use this registry fix to see if you will still get these popups since you are trying to see what works or not.https://community.webroot.com/t5/Webroot-SecureAnywhere-Antivirus/How-to-Run-WSA-alongside-Windows-Defender-on-Windows-8-Windows-8/ta-p/23058
Just a thought? Otherwise we will have to wait for Daniel. As he knows more then I...
? do you have anything to add?
That is an interesting thought, and perhaps one worth exploring as a temporary solution...if it works. But there is an underlying issue at play here for some users. The puzzling thing is, as you say, why this is not affecting all users.
I am wondering if it could be something due to UAC...I have UAC switched off as I use another security app to cover that angle...perhaps a left of field idea but at this stage I would say that any sugegstions should be looked at...like the Registry tweak you have mentioned.
BTW, do you have UAC switched on or off?
I have UAC enabled with one of my sytems running W/10 and I do not get any of those messages. As I don't have third party
security for that PC. This is also a interesting point though!
I also use ethernet cables. I wouldn't know if that would have anything to do with the wireless setup?
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!
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. ;)
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. ;)
I do hope that it gets sorted out sooner rather than later.
