20 Most Recent Webroot Desktop Firewall (667208542109) Questions & Answers

The Webroot Desktop Firewall was discontinued several years ago and has not been updated to work on current operating systems or OS patches. Unfortunately, the best way to resolve this issue is to uninstall the Webroot Destop Firewall and replace it with any currently-supported firewall. If you want to stay with Webroot, their Internet Security packages include firewalls. Other firewalls are available at various prices or free, and as always, no firewall is perfect in operation or convenience, so find the one that you trust best and works best for your needs.

Go to start menu then run type in MSCONFIG then go to startup items. Disable the on screen application for the firewall but not the firewall itself it should stop posting the application on the screen shot. Do not delete just disable startup item. I would also disable anything else that is annoying you a well. It will not hurt your computer. Thanks for using FixYa! John

Power on the machine, keep pressing F8 so that you enter into safe mode,
after logging on try uninstalling webroot. If successfully uninstalled, try using AVAST the free version, its far much better than webroot.

Try installing yahoo chat and see if the video chat works. Then try AIM. Even Google chat,video havenot been working too well with the different firewalls and antivirus.
