I get notifications multpile times a day that both Webroot and  Windows defender are turned off.  This has happened since I had to uninstall and then reinstall Webroot to my computer. I am thinkinging there were possibly some files that didn’t fully get removed during the install that are now causing an issue with windows recognizing webroot.  Please let me know how this can be fixed.  I am concerned by it not only because it is annoying, but I do not want my computer left vulnerable since my webroot program now seems to freeze, hang, or close it self down at random times.  I am on Windows Home, Dell Inspirion 7777, Please advise.

Hello @wexxsup and Welcome to the Webroot Community!

 

Can you please do a clean reinstall and that should solve your issue.

Hello @photoguychad ,

 

Welcome to the Webroot Community,

Sorry for any Inconveniences that this is causing you.

This is happening to my PC as well which started happening when Windows10 updated to v1909. I am running the Webroot Beta  version and I suspect that this issue was/is caused by Windows update.

My advice would be to Submit a Support Ticket or Contact Webroot Support which is free of  charge with your Webroot Subscription. Support will gladly assist you. 

 

@TripleHelix do you have any advice? 🙃

WebRoot, come on guys. Enough already. This has been posted as far back as 3 years. Now you are asking us to Submit a support ticket as if this is the first time you hear of this? Seriously ?

I don’t want to submit a support ticket, this has been posted already !! Let’s get this fixed. I’m getting sick and tired of this.

Hello @TripleHelix ,

 

Ok, I did exactly as you described. Although I was never prompted to import any settings.

In any case, let’s wait a few weeks and see if the problem pops up.

Thank you for your quick response.

Hello @wexxsup we just put that in our canned reply to make users aware Not to Import any settings at any time as it does carry some odd things that we don’t want in a clean installation and yes it’s after WSA has been installed under settings so I will make a change to it. https://docs.webroot.com/us/en/home/wsa_pc_userguide/wsa_pc_userguide.htm#SettingPreferences/ExportingAndImportingSettings.htm%3FTocPath%3DSetting%2520Preferences%7C_____4

 

Thanks and hope all goes well!

Problem gone. Ok, yes, I did get upset at the “canned reply” especially since this question has been asked before. Just remember that I do support webroot 100% . I am only one person but believe me anyone who asks I tell them about webroot. I guess that’s the New Yorker in me that I take things personally. Webroot is my product of choice and I am attached to it. What can I say ?

Thanks,

I have 2 computers that are doing this. I have reinstalled multiple times for this issue. It was stated that an update would be released to correct this. It either hasn’t been released or it is not effective in correcting this problem.  I am getting extremely irritated. No AV should be allowed to turn off without my input. I will be installing another AV program. Totally dissatisfied.
