    I guess it`s to late for me to do that, as the latest update seems to include this new added reg-key :confused:

    This also happened to me except with Windows 10. I had to reinstall my OS because I couldn't get Windows back even in Advanced boot up screen. It would only boot up to a plain black screen. I did reinstall Webroot after instalingl Windows because I didn't think it was all related until troubleshooting in my head and help from a friend @Triple Helix when conversing over all of this when this was happening..while doing a clean reinstall. All is great now.

    I have reported it to the Webroot Beta Group. - Thank you Triple Helix

    I have opened a ticket about the issue with the support team, and hopefully they have some advice.

    Thanks for the info. I didn't know that was an option, but since I haven't received the update yet (on Windows 7), I unchecked it too & will monitor this thread.

    I should have unchecked it days sooner, but thought it could do no harm so i let it go until another wsa user had a big problem after the new update. I don't plan on installing the ms update anyway, so i don't really need the reg key.
