Greetings to all. Scanning for Malware used to take only 1-1/2 or 2 minutes. Recently though, the scan now stops at 74%. Maybe 10 seconds later it will go to 77% and stop. Quite a few seconds later ( like 15-20 ) it will continue on to 100% ,and then end. Scans are taking 4-1/2 minutes now. Its probably nothing to be concerned with, and Webroot is just taking its time to completely check everything. Just being curious, what say the experts ? Much obliged, Robert
Webroot Expired on Toshiba Laptop Can't connect to internet
I have a Toshiba Satellite Laptop running Windows 10. I got a pop up that Webroot Expired and I clicked renee and saw that I was not connected to the internet. I tried to reconnect and it wouldn't. I rebooted the laptop and it still would not connect. I tried to connect to my Wi-Fi hot spot and it would not connect. I think that it has something to do with Webroot expiring. How can I renew it? How can I turn off whatever is blocking my internet connection? Thank you.

WSA Forces NumLock OnKnowledge Base
[h2]Question[/h2]I have noticed WSA forces my NumLock into the "on" position. I do not like this, and I don't want it to do that. What can be done? [h2]Answer[/h2]This issue is resolvable with a quick registry patch contained in [url=http://download.webroot.com/NumLock.zip]this zip file[/url].

[u]Here is a short explanation of what to do with the zip file:[/u] 1. Download the [url=http://download.webroot.com/NumLock.zip]NumLock.zip[/url] file. 2. Double-click NumLock.zip to open it.

Why doesn't Webroot rate VPN services as trustworthy?
I think this is a problem because major technology news outlets report that Virtual Private Networks like Private Internet Access, Tunnelbear, and Hotspot Shield a very reputable and trustworthy for casual users wanting more privacy and security. If anyone can explain to me why this is a problem, I would very much appreciate it.
Webroot Secure Anyywhere Keycode
I renewed my subscription through Geek Squad. Best Buy is one I should have, but anyway, I have the protection for 3 devices. 2 are for PC's. I am trying to use 3rd for my new phone. I renewed subscription on old phone. I never was able to use 3rd device on old phone. Trying to use it on new phone. Everything goes alright until I enter correct keynote from back of CD. It keeps saying It is wrong. No because it accepted on other 2 devices. What am I doing wrong? Should I try entering it using a PC instead of phone I want put on? Help please & TY

Webroot Threats on new computer
Hi all, I just got home with my new iMac and Webroot has already popped up 5 threats and I don't know what to do with them. I have tried looking them up but I'm still not sure what to do with them. This is an example of one of them. /system/library/launchagents/com.apple.accessibility.dfrhud.plist/system/libarary/coreservices/backupd.bundle/contents/resources/backupd. Where is a good and reliable place to look up these threats and decide what to do with them? Thanks, Jangeed
Anti-Exploit/Anti-Ransomware and WSA
I was wondering if using Anti Exploit and Anti Ransomware software is really necessary when I already use WSA. Recently installed MBAM 3.0 trial but of course now I have another real time program sucking up cpu cycles and slowing down startup. It almost feels like web browsing has also slowed down but that could be my imagination. So in a nut shell are these types of programs just redundant and not necessary when using WSA ? As Always, Thanks Group Danjo
Webroot download site not secure
I just purchased Webroot SecureAnywhere® Internet Security Complete 5 Device , and when I click on the "Download for PC" button in my conf email it takes me to a page deemed NOT secure. Even though I uninstalled my McAffee software, it's being flagged by something leftover on my laptop from McAffee (would like to solve for that too but I digress for now). Message states that "[url=http://anywhere.webro?otcloudav.com/zerol/?wsainstall.exe]http://anywhere.webro?otcloudav.com/zerol/?wsainstall.exe[/url]" is suspicious and dangerous... Why would webroot take me to a non-secure page to download security software? Very confused by this and would appreciate any help. Thank you.
Webroot acting goofy

Going back anf forth w/ support, told to uninstall / reinstall, no Webroot in the program list to remove! Webroot still sitting on my desktop, still prompting me to renew. Anyone run into this behavior before, any ideas?
Help! Why is my website showing up as suspicious
Hello, I just noticed that my Webroot extension is flagging my personal website as suspicious. I've seen on other threads that there is a form to submit to have the website reclassified, but I want to make sure there is not something I'm missing before I file the request. What are the reasons a website would be flagged suspicious and is there anything in particular I should look for to make sure it doesn't need additional attention before filing for the change? I ask because, while I know my website has a lot of links (it is a personal portfolio, so the main goal is to gather together in a single space a catalog of all my online publications), I have checked each of these links individually and found them to be, on their own, flagged as safe. So what else would I be missing from my end? Thanks!

My Webroot internet security expired. I went to best buy and purchased internet security plus. I now have two different keycodes. One is expired and the other is not activated. I seem to be going around in circles and cannot activate the new keycode. Anytime I try to add a PC it just takes me to the Webrrot information screen telling my my subscription is expired. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
