WSA freezes my browser
Yeah, that's strange.... But Webroot just freezes firstly my browser especially FireFox, when I'am watching YouTube or downloading pdf files... Then just freezes whole system..... These seems quite look so with Google Chrome.... It does not like good Webroot, it doesn't.......

First of all, please forgive my long absence on the forum.
It seems that the problem with freezing browser disappeared with the advent of version 188.8.131.52.
The new version works exactly as it should be - safely, slightly and flawlessly - so far I have not encountered any problems.
Again I can fully enjoy with everything that WSA offers to me :D
Thanks for everything,
System: Windows 7 (32bit)
Browser: Mozilla FireFox 15.0.1 without any add-ons.
Any other software like Flash or Java updated to the latest versions.

Just want to make sure we get you taken care of. 😉
What specifically leads you to believe it is WSA that is causing the freezes?
On a properly-operating, completely stock Windows 7 system with browsers and no other security software installed, there are no issues. This has been QA'ed to death. That and there are zero other reports of things like this. Thus, either something on the system itself is not operating properly, or it's not fully stock, or it's not actually WSA causing the issue.
So the first thing to always do is figure out whether it's definitely WSA causing the issue, because we don't want to waste your time troubleshooting WSA's apparently-unique behavior on your system if it's not actually WSA causing it. If it definitely triggers off WSA specifically, then we need to discover what is unique and possibly broken about your system that is causing it to react in such a way when no others have.
