SOURCE: Webroot Firewall Stops working (Windows Vista)

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

SOURCE: Webroot antivirus won't run.

I'd uninstall and go with something like Avira Antivirus
I haven't had ANY issues running this program. All I deal with is the occasional pop up when new definitions are installed. For what it can do, I think it's the best out there for it's price range...free.
If you wish to stick with Webroot...it sounds like it's conflicting with other program/s. Make sure your program is compatible with your OS. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if it were Vista.

SOURCE: Webroot problems

I just went through this this afternoon, I spent 8 hours removing and updating and loading McAfee and running it too.

Webroot is a bad program, it is hard to remove and some of the componets just cannot be removed unless you do a search for the file and then delete it....if you need a certain dll then the anti-virus should detect that and remove or quarantine it.

I would suggest that you remove Webroot, and install another anti-virus program...I swear by McAfee, it removed over 30 problems or quarantined them, it works and is well worth the money spent....If you have Comcast, it is FREE to download on all of your computers in your home....just part of the internet service.

PS...Uniblue registry booster is no good, and another one that is hard to remove...it has spyware too.

Why after installing webroot on my hp pavilion with windows 7 I can not connect to Internet it says " unable to connect to proxy server" ?


The anti-virus has set up a firewall which has disabled your internet access. Go into your Webroot console and go to settings and firewall and set it to make an exception for incoming network connections.

Error netflix


Yes. Go to settings on your Webroot console or dashboard and find the firewall settings. From there make an exception for Silverlight so that it will be allowed through.

Spysweeper and internet explorer


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.

Webroot and spysweeper 2011 no longer puts cookies into quarentee section


I have the same problem: Webroot 2011 no longer detects and quarantines cookies. If you go to the Webroot Support page and type "no longer quarantine cookies", it offers the generated issue: "You want to know why Internet Explorer cookies are not detected in a scan"; to which it offers the following answer: "A recent Microsoft security update (KB 2559049) [...check your Windows updater, I got this security update on my computer on August 10th...] prevents Webroot security programs from identifying spy cookies on systems where the update is applied. Although these cookies cannot be detected, your core antivirus and anti-spyware protection is not compromised. Viruses and spyware are still blocked. Webroot engineers are actively investigating options to restore spy cookie detections and any solutions will be provided in an upcoming release." (This statement is not dated; I am looking at it now, August 28th, 2011, on their Webroot Support page.) I have Windows Vista operating system and Webroot 2011 version 7.0.11.21. My Webroot Antivirus with Spy Sweeper hasn't swept up anything in scans in the last couple of weeks, but it did block an internet site last night; so I think it's still working. Hope this helps!

Error message


What type? Please describe. However is the error is upon installation here are some tips:

The Windows Installer Service is required to install Spy Sweeper/Webroot AntiVirus 5.8 or Spy Sweeper/Webroot AntiVirus/Webroot Internet Security Essential 6.1. However, by Microsoft's design, the Windows Installer in not available in Safe Mode. On rare occasions Safe Mode installation is still desirable, so Webroot has engineered a method to make this possible. This method uses a file called "SafeCore.exe".

If the installation is performed using "Safe Mode with Networking" and an active internet connection is available, the Version Guard feature of our installer will automatically download and run SafeCore.exe. No action on the part of the user is required. Otherwise SafeCore.exe will need to manually be placed in the same folder as the standard Webroot software installer.

(Example: if the installer file is already on the Windows desktop, copy SafeCore.exe to the desktop as well, and then run the Webroot AntiVirus/Spy Sweeper/Webroot Internet Security Essentials 5.8/6.0 installer to begin the installation process).

To obtain a copy of SafeCore.exe, please first check what version of the Webroot software you are trying to install. Right click on the installer and choose Properties, and then click on the Version tab. A File version will be listed.

  • If the file version is 5.8.1.55, please click SafeCore.exe to download the SafeCore files specifically designed for 5.8.1.55 and place it in the same folder that the installer is located in.
  • If the file version is 6.1.0.128, please click SafeCore.exe to download the SafeCore files specifically designed for 6.0.2.22 and place it in the same folder that the installer is located in.
  • If the file version is different than the two listed above, please contact Webroot Technical Support for an alternative option.

If the computer you are trying to install on does not have a network connection, it may be required to transfer this file from one machine to another using removable media such as a USB drive or CD-ROM.

If installing Spy Sweeper/Webroot AntiVirus/Webroot Internet Security Essentials 6.0, the Backup Component may not install completely in Safe Mode since it contains components that require the Windows Installer Service to install completely. You will need to re-run the installation in normal mode to activate the Backup component.

I don't believe it could do that, unless you have a firewall on it. If you have a firewall see if you can disable that and then if that doesn't work, you most likely should uninstall it because if it is going to create issues for you then you shouldn't use it.
