Webroot Internet Security Essentials Firewall won't turn on

Download went well, worked for one week. Then Windows states my firewalls (Windows and Webroot) are turned off. Everything shows it is on. Contacte Webroot that had me uninstall and re-install. Worked again for 2 weeks and now I am getting the same warning that the firewalls are turned off. I am running Windows Vista 64 bit, on which Webroot is supposed to work. I don't want to have to keep uninstalling and reinstalling this software. Has anyone found a solution or had this problem?

Hi there!

Try re-installing the software. Also, there maybe registry or windows related problems but there's a solution to that: run TUNEUP UTILITIES and run a full system check on your computer.

Also, make sure your activation key or registration has not expired.

Hope this helps

You need to contact webroot to get this kind of stuff. It's their program and it might not be compatible with Win 7 64-bit.

Webroot is an Internet security company based out of Colorado.
The company, founded in 1997, offers Internet security programs for businesses and home users.
The Webroot Internet Security Essentials and Webroot Internet Security Complete programs include a firewall that's designed to monitor incoming data and filter out potentially unsafe data.
Consequently, Webroot does not recommend that you disable the firewall.
Nevertheless, if you want to use a different firewall or if the firewall is blocking legitimate data, disable it with a few clicks.

Launch the Webroot program.
Click "Edit Settings" under "PC Security" in the "Home" panel.
The PC Security panel opens.
Click the "Firewall" tab.
Check the circle next to "Allow All Traffic." The Webroot Firewall is now disabled.

Detecting virus is computer


Hello install this program from here:

http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/

Here is a free version that works great.
This is also the best free malware remover available !!!!!!

Install also a better free anti virus program like this:

Please uninstall the old antivirus program, before you install
Microsoft Security Essentials.
Mse it`s not useing so much of the pc`s memory to operate.

Your windows version must be valid, to use Microsoft Security Essentials .

Good luck

Auto re-newal keeps stating it is expired.


There is a distinction between the program and the subscription for updates. Updates usually get purchased for a year at a time. YOU want the updates, so renew.

Webroot firewall keeps shuting down and giving error


If you are referring to Webroot Desktop Firewall, that software is no longer supported as it was discontinued years ago. The "No Longer Supported" factor means that it is not updated to keep up with new Windows systems and patches, so will slowly stop working and become worse and worse as it gets older. If this is the software you are referring to, unfortunately the best solution is to uninstall it and use a current, updated firewall instead.

If you want to stay with Webroot, their firewall is included in their Internet Security packages. Otherwise there are numerous free and paid firewalls, all with different features, problems, good sides and bad sides. Examples include Comodo, Zone Alarm, and Sunbelt.

I try to run the scan but it keeps on saying that my scan is disabled how can i fix it because my computer is vulnerable thats what pops up i never had issues with webroot but this is frustrating


It looks like your licence has run out and they're asking you to renew.

If this is the case, go to Filehippo.com download and install AVG free, also Microsoft security essentials. Both are free and will cover you.

Then uninstall the webroot stuff.

Can not get webroot antivirus to do a scan. It does not expire until May 2011


Get a better anti-virus solution: use Avast, it is much better. Go to www.filehippo.com to download it. Once you are at filehippo, you will find many different, free security downloads, but Avast is the best one there (including Microsoft's Security Essentials).

For Root Kit issues, try RootkitRevealer

I have webroot anti-virus and it consistently is being turned off after I get on the internet. Is it likely malware or a virus causing this? Actually, it is the firewall that is being turned off.


Chances are it's a virus or malware. Download an anti-virus program to a disk or to a flash drive. Run it and see if you can find a virus. Here's a link to one of the best anti-virus progams. (In my opinion)

Hope you solve the problem. You might also try Malwarebytes

Good Luck
