Hi everyone! I uninstalled Webroot from my Windows 10 system through control panel with no apparent problems. Webroot is gone from programs list but Istill have some remnants of the program. For example, in the startup tab within task manager I have following startup item: Webroot Installer. Also if you go to SETTINGS , click System , then click Notification & Actions and then click: Select Which Icons Appear On TheTaskbar, within that list I have an entry called WRSA.exe (which I can turn on or off in the notification area in taskbar). How can I completely remove all entries of the Webroot from my system? Does anyone know a cleanup or uninstall tool to completely remove all left over entries? If not, is there a way to manually remove all leftover entries? Thank you so much for your help!
I recently had a case where both of the browsers on my PC (FF and Edge) kept trying to make an outbound connection to ocsp.digicert.com. Webroot didn't flag it as a problem, but I also run Malwarebytes, which blocked it. Uninstalling/reinstalling FF didn't help. I had to restore my PC to a restore point made a week earlier to get rid of the constant outbound connection attempts. Afterwards, I also found that Malwarebytes wouldn't scan my computer. I would start a scan and it would stop 1-2 seconds later with a "clean PC" report. I reinstalled MWB and it seems to work ok now. Just to be on the safe side, I also reinslatted Webroot, but I'm a little disappointed that it didn't catch any problems - assuming I had a problem. What is ocsp.digicert.com and is it something bad?
In System Analyzer I received the following message in the software section: "An active process has a possible handle leak (explorer.exe). Does anyone know how to fix it or what it means? I opened a chat with the Geek Squad and they basically said don't worry about it, but seems if it comes up as an error, something should be done.
I have a Windows XP Pro machine with WRSA running (for a couple of years), and last night at 7:51pm AST a file named "Program" was created in the root directory (i.e., C:). As such, I received the Windows File Name Warning upon reboot that "There is a file or folder on your computer called "C:Program" which could cause certain applications to not fuction correctly. Renamintg it to "C:Program1" would solve this problem. Would you like to rename it now?" Properties of the file indicate that it is 743 KB with a description of "Webroot SecureAnywhere" and is digitally signed as "Webroot Inc." with a digital signature timestamp of "Jan 14, 2014 7:36:45 AM". A hexdump of the file shows at the top the standard "This program cannot be run in DOS mode" and at the bottom, there appears things like "Company Name - Webroot", etc. We have had WRSA installed for a couple of years and did not do anything special yesterday. Do you know what this file is, and why it is labled as Webroot?
The following message is displayed when I access chrome://management: "This browser is managed by a company, school or other organization. Your administrator can change your browser setup remotely. Activity on this device may also be managed outside of chrome." Chrome is installed on my home computer whose administrator I am . What could I do to remove this management? I saw a lot of complaints of this type on the WEB, but no solution was provided. I have installed Weebroot Internet security plus on my system and it didn't alert me that something suspicious happens in my browser. Any suggestion to identify who manages my browser or how to remove this management is welcome. Thanks!!!
So When I went to make the webroot chrome extension activive (it was greyed out and I hadn't noticed till I had webroot for a monthor two) I noticed that there were two of them. Worried that i had accidently downloaded a fake one I removed both from chrome. However I later learned (or at least I'm fairly certain) that they were both from Webroot and the newer version for some reason had simply failedd to remove the older extension. The Problem I'm facing though is that I cant seem to find any way to get the extension back, it isn't on web store and i can't find it in Webroot. I found a page on Community that did lead to a Webroot extension called "Webroot Filtering Extension" . This did not bring back the button for the extension and I think it's the wrong extension. If anyone could help me find the actual extension that'd be great. Thanks, sauronofmordor P.S. even tho I selected the Internet security Plus board i can't find anything that says the "plus" at the end, but it was internet
Hello, I have a Windows 10 PC and Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security.It stopped working a week ago after the last released update tried to install.Rebooting does not fix it. When trying to uninstall Webroot to try reinstalling fresh: It says I must be an administrator to access this feature (even though I am logged in as admin) and I am unable to uninstall it. I have tried opening a ticket with Webroot last week and still no response back.Anyone have any thoughts? Thanks!

The green check marks next to results in Google search has stopped working in Chrome. They show up fine in Bing search using Chrome. They work fine in Firefox. I've uninstalled & reinstalled the extension from the Chrome store. Any suggestion on getting them back in Google search? Thank you. Lisa
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!
Hello, I just noticed that my disk usage was at 100% right after installing webroot, I troubleshooted for a while not suspecting webroot, but when i ran out of options I disabled webroot and my disk usage instantly dropped from 100% to 5%. I would really like to use this product, but this issue I'm having is making that impossible. I would appreciate any advice and I apologize if this is in the incorrect section. Thank you!
My boyfriend is having issues with Webroot taking up too much CPU usage while running a scan. [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/23139i88010BB2DBE8E737.jpg[/img] Hes had problems ever since he upgraded to Windows 10 from 7 on his HP laptop. This screenshot is him running a scan. Hes been complaining of poor computer preformance and notes that it only happens when he has webroot running and it happens a lot while webroot is idle and not scanning. [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/23140i746811CC01CC6CBC.jpg[/img] This what it looks like after he stopped a scan. He has to stop webroot from running at all to get any kind of computer preformance back. Now me on the other hand, I still have not upgraded and I am using Windows 7 with no issues. [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/23144i57AA70A4B8BCD915.png[/img] This is what Webroot looks for me while idle, alwa
I need to unitstall Webroot for a short time. I have Windows 10. After uninstalling, I keep getting a popup wanting me to enter my KeyCode and reinstall. It is very annoying. How do I stop that?
I have had a Webroot account for years now, but each morning for about the last week when I start my Windows 10 PC, this popup appears telling me to “click here” to “create a NEW My Account.” Is this (late May 2022) popup even from Webroot? If it is, why am I being asked to create an account when I already have one (sounds highly suspicious to me)? If the popup is not from Webroot, what steps should I take to eradicate the little vermin? Thank you.
Hi, I am a new Webroot user and installed it on my iMac running OSX 10.10.5. It seems to have been running fine for about 5 weeks but I just received a pop up from OSX saying this: [b][i]WSDaemon would like to take control of this computer using accessibility features[/i][/b] When I open my security preferences it shows that WSDaemon is listed in the privacy section. What is this and am I really supposed to allow it? Thanks
