Nagging "Firewall is disabled" message
Not actually a problem with Webroot but maybe someone knows of a solution. I have Windows Firewall disabled since I don't need it. Webroot Firewall is better. But, Windows 10 keeps complaining that Windows Firewall is disabled. Any way to stop the nagging?

You need to have Windows Firewall ON as well with WSA's Firewall! WSA's Firewall is only Outbound and you need Windows Firewall for Inbound! See here: https://docs.webroot.com/us/en/home/wsa_pc_userguide/wsa_pc_userguide.htm#UsingFirewallProtectionWebShieldProtection/ManagingFirewalls.htm%3FTocPath%3DUsing%2520Firewall%2520%252F%2520Web%2520Shield%2520Protection%7C_____1
Managing FirewallsThe SecureAnywhere firewall monitors data traffic traveling out of your computer ports. It looks for untrusted processes that try to connect to the Internet and steal your personal information. It works with the Windows firewall, which monitors data traffic coming into your computer. With both the SecureAnywhere and Windows firewall turned on, your data has complete inbound and outbound protection.
You should not turn off either the Windows firewall or the SecureAnywhere firewall. If they are disabled, your system is open to many types of threats whenever you connect to the Internet or to a network. These firewalls can block malware, hacking attempts, and other online threats before they can cause damage to your system or compromise your security.
The SecureAnywhere firewall is preconfigured to filter traffic on your computer. It works in the background without disrupting your normal activities. If the firewall detects any unrecognized traffic, it opens an alert where you can block the traffic or allow it to proceed.
Please DO NOT Disable the Windows Firewall. It works with the Webroot Firewall.
