I have the essentials package. I have set the https & http configuration for websites to max on all 3 of my computers. The tray icon on any of them is not showing the padlock. I am using the latest Version 8.0.2.27 and running windows 7. Please advise.

Answer to support ticket:
 
The Access from Web Console issue will be resolved in the next build of the software. This will be very soon. I apologize for the inconvenience. Regarding the other issue (Padlock) in order to better understand what is occurring, we would like to gather more information with our specialized log gathering utility, wsalogs, which will greatly expedite the diagnosis and repair of the problem. Once you have completed the following instructions, please let us know that the logs are available to review. 

Below are the steps to gather this data:

1. Download Webroot's log-gathering utility from the following link:

http://download.webroot.com/wsalogs.exe

2. Save the file to your Desktop (or the preferred Download folder of your web browser).

3. Once it has finished downloading, double-click the wsalogs.exe file on your Desktop to run it.

4. In the box labeled "Email:", enter the same email address you used for this support site.

5. Click the "Go!" button to begin the log gathering process.
 
Unable to access web consul from either
XXXXXXX - PC or 
XXXXXXX - PC 
I get the registration process on both machines. If I complete the registration the dialogue informs me that it has already been registered (Both Machines)

Padlock on XXXXXXX - PC Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, Opera 12.02 Browser, works sometimes?

Did you start a support Ticket first as it's a must if not please do so with the same email address?
 
Thanks,

Hi, I am unable to create a support ticket. It says you have already spoken to me and emailed a password. I spoke to support yesterday on another issue and am awaiting a response. I have not had an email with a password. Please help.

Hi stevecosta and welcome to the Webroot Community!
 
Lyle was right to suggest gathering logs in this case (this is what our support agents typically suggest for strange issues such as the missing padlock as your machine's logs will be key to determine the root of the problem).
 
That being said, TripleHelix is absolutely right in that you should always submit a support ticket beforehand. This is because, while vital, the logs you gather and send over become obsolete if you don't tell a support agent (by updating your support ticket) first as they will never know you sent the logs otherwise.
 
In your case, because you've already submitted a ticket (albeit for a different issue), you simply need to go into your email and check for a Webroot Support message. That will have the password in it (which you can just copy and then click the link that will take you to the aforementioned support ticket page). After entering your email address, simply paste in the password and you will be able to update your ticket saying that you have a different issue and that you have already submitted the log files.
 
Let me know if you have other questions.
 
P.S. Thanks Lyle and T.H. for chiming in on the thread and providing very useful information!

Hi,
I have had another issure and spoke to telephone support on thursday. He was unable to sort the problem so was referering it to the us. I have not had a support email reply yet so do not have a password to submit a support ticket for this issue.  I have unistalled and reinstalled again and still not displaying padlock, All 3 of my pcs are the same. Also I cannot access the web console in the usual way.

As already stated I cannot create a ticket as it asks for a password as I had another issue on thursday. I do not have any webroot support emails and no password. I am still awaiting a response from support. It seems impossible to get the message through. I think I will speak to sales with regard to cancelling webroot.

What email program do you use? Have you checked the SPAM folder?

Hi Steve do you have another email address that you can use to contact support with? If you do then you can reference your regular email address in the message and they can get that sorted also!

When a support ticket is opened, either by visiting the support page or by calling support, it generates an email with information for you.
 
Some email providers will automatically send this to Spam boxes.  In many cases, especially in cases where web mail is downloaded to the local computer, the Spam folder contents on the mail provider are hidden from the local computer.  They requires you to log into your email on the web mail system and look at the spam folder there, since they will never send the message to your computer.  This is a function of the email provider and not one that Webroot can control. 
 
Unfortunately, we cannot do anything but send the information to your email.  We cannot get the password to give you over the phone or anything similar.  This is for security reasons.  Therefore it is up to the individual to work with the email provider to ensure the email reaches them.
I have a same problem on latest version... I opened a support ticket

The problem with the padlock not working on Opera 64bit Browser appears to be a path problem. I installed a 32bit Application of Opera 12.02 on my 64bit machine and the padlock works flawlessly!

Hi Lyle,
 
You can add Opera x64 to the list and put it under Protect and let us know if it works for you. https://detail.webrootanywhere.com/agenthelp.asp?n=Managing_protected_applications

Hi Daniel. I have it on the list as have been using the 64bit version for over a year! Have had a running support ticket open for about 2 weeks.The padlock worked occasionally.  support answer was................
 
I have updated the development case regarding the issue. Most of the reports we have received regarding this behavior have been 'intermittent.' Because these cases cannot be reliably reproduced in house it makes generating a resolution from a program standpoint challenging. It appears to be environment specific, and recreating the exact environment/update path and architecture of the systems that are exhibiting the behavior is near impossible. 

Another behavior that has been observed is when a HTTPS: site is loaded on one tab, and a HTTP: site is loaded on another, the padlock icon may not appear or switch based on the 'active' tab.

Thank you for your time,

Since installing the 32bit version it never misses.

Thanks Lyle for your reply as I use the 32bit versions of Opera & Firefox and I find no need to use the 64bit versions at this time but I'm sure that Webroot Development Teams are working on supporting 64bit browsers in the future as most new PC's come with 64bit OS's but at least 64bit OS's support most 32bit Applications! ;)

My apologies for dragging up an old thread, but inquiring minds will want to know:

8.0.2.105 contains an improvement for padlock behavior.  That may help to recitify this kind of issue.  If anyone in this thread had an issue with a disappearing padlock that was not previously resolved, please try the new build.  :)
I guess non-english OS user must still wait for support to have working padlock icon.
On this version i have padlock only ones, just after installation. :(

It's strange, my OS language is also unsupported but the build 8.0.2.105 brings the padlock back.  BTW, what version of WSA do you have? (.105 or .109). I have .105 (using the beta build that wasn't updated to .109 yet) and in this version the padlock shows correctly.
 
EDIT: In addition to my above query, can you kindly inform your OS? Did you reboot after installation? You said the padlock was there after installation, can you elaborate a bit more?
 
Sorry for bothering you with my questions but I am very interested in getting to the core of your problem.
Today I did a full reinstall .109 version ( before a just simply update my WSA ) and reboot my computer. Now finaly i have a working padlock icon ! For the first time since the beginning of the adventure with WSA ! :)
