I just went through a problem with Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Plus on Windows 10 operating system where I tried to run an AutoDesk self-extracting zip executable program. The program created a new folder where I specified on each attempt, but failed to continue with any file extractions. I looked at the Block/Allow files on webroot, but this program was not listed. However Windows 10 showed this program in both detailed and undetailed view for task manager. I double-clicked this executable to start it. On one attempt I let the process continue long enough that my entire computer hung up where mouse and keyboard became unresponsive. I had to put the computer into hibernation mode to escape. When I exited hibernation mode, I disabled the firewall in webroot and the program imediately extracted the files and allowed me to install AutoCad on the PC. 1) Does webroot normally detect that a double-clicked executable is being blocked as
Hello! I want to know if it is possible to solve this particular hurdle of mine, and hopefully help other AE users that might have the same problem. I am a heavy user of scripts in After Eeffects. Aescripts is one of the main resources for powerful tools and scripts, many free, most paid, and I have many licenses with them. The problem is with their chosen licensing method. Basically, when After Effects opens, multiple .exes with random strings for names will be created, one for every script that is checking it's license. After a moment, the license is validated, and AE loads. The next time the program opens, the process will occur again. The thing is that webroot is catching those randomly named exes as security risks. That hangs AE, causes the license of all the scripts to be disabled, and generates multiple errors. The only solution is to restart AE with the realtime shield disabled, and then manally re-enter the license code for every script th
Hi everyone, I'd like to know what sort of protection is available to protect data in lost/stolen pc. For example, upon request, can webroot wipe the data or prevent it from being accessed? And if webroot doesn't do that sort of stuff, are there other programs/ security systems that can be purchased to do that?

I noticed this update hasn't been installed on my computer yet. Under the release notes it says, "Version 18.104.22.168 (Released December 12th, 2016) - [i]Note: Limited availability during deployment over holiday period." [/i]What does that mean and when should I expect the update to be installed by? Thank you and happy holidays!

Hi People: Question: The above "password stealer" has snuck by Webroot and the Windows Defender [b]twice[/b] this week! First: How did that sneak by Webroot? I scan religiously every day. Second: How is it that Windows Defender has found this two times even after removal? This is a very clever "password stealer" or Webroot and Windows Defender are not doing the job! Does anyone have any ideas as I am starting to worry. As always, thanks for your help.
Good morning all, wishing you all less burdens and brighter hope for the new year, I for one am extremely grateful for all the things I DO NOT have. I know Webroot is not intended for this, but I"m wondering, if I there is a way for webroot to remove a program that dosen't have a uninstall for it?? Problem being that Best Buy (at the store) had tried to install Trend antivirus when I first bought the "Beast" but it didn't install right, so I had purchased Webroot. Now all the files from Trend are still on the "Beast", and no uninstall option. and wonderful Geek Squad keeps ignoring it when I ask them about it. That being said, could I use webroot to remove it if I use the manual threat removal tool? since it removes the registry etc. files
Greetings all and Happy New Year. Although I have renewed my Internet Security Plus for another year, I still get a pop up indicating my service is up soon and to renew it. Is there a way to delete this notice.. at least for another 365 days. Much obliged to all at Webroot.
I have used Webroot's re-branded Last Pass password manager for years. Since all my passwords are stored online now, I added two-factor authentication via the console. Things were good, until I had to perform a factory reset on my phone, the device used to obtain the authentication code. Now, I am unable to log into the password manager because the link to remove authentication is broken. When I click on it, a Webroot page ([url=https://my.webroot.com/?action=resendValidation&username=************%40gmail.com&lang=en-US)appears]https://my.webroot.com/?action=resendValidation&username=************%40gmail.com&lang=en-US)appears[/url] telling me that an email to verify my request was sent to my email address. When I click the link that says "Verify Request", I am greeted with another Webroot page that says the link has expired ([url=https://my.webroot.com/?linkCode=4d57505551544d4f5349828a8d9196&md5=b4928ec76e91261b97ccbb70c39f9109&
on my current Internet Security Plus. I have a new disc being delivered on Thursday Afternoon. Should I wait until my current one expires and then reapply or can I re-up later today and have those left over 30 days added to the newish 365 days ? May everyone have a safe and prosperous New Year !
I just installed webroot on 5 of my machines. Since the install, most of my programs, especially my payroll and contact management software take forever to open, and once I close them, they take betwenn 30 and 45 seconds to close. I never had this problem prior to today; was using ESET 9, and the main reason for switching to Webroot was that ESET was consuming 245megs of ram. Now my ram usage is minimal for this program, but my programs respond as if they are on crutches. Any ideas? With thanks in advance PK
This morning when I started chrome and wanted to log in to a website I was unable to find the password manager toolbar. I checked the extensions and it was there but Google advised that it was corrupted and shouldn't be used. I deleted it and went to the Google store to find the download, but there was no download in the Google store. What happened to it? Does Google think it has a vulnerability and shouldn't be used? Is that why it is unavailable? On a second computer, the chrome also had no web root pass manager icon, and it also, in the "managing extensions" section informed that Web Root Pass Manager 2.5.5 "may have been corrupted". Chrome will not allow me to enable it. What can I do to the web root password manager?
Hi everyone! I'm just going through the process of joining up to the 'Pinterest' website but now having second thoughts.

Any help will be fantastic peeps! :) Linda.

Hello, Long time Webroot user, coming across this issue just recently on 2 computers. Seems like EVERY file I modify or create seems to become locked. I can't delete the file or do anything with it. I notice a reboot works, then I can come in and delete, but what also works is shutting down Webroot! Webroot seems to be locking every file I work on or create. This problem only started about a week ago. Here is the error: the action can't be completed because the folder or a file in it is open in another program Any help would be much appreciated. Thank You!
Flags showing whether sites are safe or unsafe are no longer showing up. I see this question has been asked previously (2014) but I don't see a recent question on it. I am using Mozilla Firefox and Windows 10. I checked Internet Explorer (Ver 11) and they do show up there, however, I don't like IE.
