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.

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!
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.
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
The wrUrlFlt service failed to start due to the following error:
There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper.
Until the problem is fixed by Webroot, am I protected? IS URL filtering working or not?
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.
Not easy whichever way one looks at things. :(
