We will publish a new PC agent version 188.8.131.52 for the Consumer Community Beta group today. Systems with the Beta already installed will update to it automatically.
Changes in this build include:
Reverting scan engine changes to restore standard scan time and scan volumes.
Changes to address issue where Chrome does not launch with ID Shield enabled.
As always we are interested in the stability and performance on your system before we release to a wider audience."
Nice thank you
Thank you Daniel!
I found their customer service to be a no-show after many attempts to resolve a backup issue. I used Webroot as early as Prevxx days, and I can tell you that in today's context, I would not touch Webroot with a ten foot pole. I got nothing but bs and a total evasion and obfuscation of the issue I was having. Great support indeed.
Their Backup&Sync (mainly the Sync part) is flaky and they know it – likewise for several other dubious bells and whistles of theirs. By contrast their core technology, that is, everything associated with malware protection, is NOT – at least not the PC versions (despite some posters' appearance on this thread from time to time, but monotonously and regularly so, whose sole mission here seems to be to badger this thread with their contrary view).
Actually, it was primarily an account issue. I had two subscriptions and they were unable or unwilling to associate the subscription I wanted to use with the backup. Not worth my time to continue the issue as we were going nowhere. They simply lost a long time customer and all of my employees.
They have excellent customer service for former customers. After I failed to renew my Webroot subscription, I received some really nice messages from them, over a period of months, saying how much they missed me.
I am a current customer
OK. Thanks for the clarification. Sad.
100%> but they did not miss us enough-lol.
Webroot now does a gradual rollout method for releases. As such, not everyone will receive the update at the same time.
PC Agent version 184.108.40.206 (Released March 15th, 2021)
UI text updated to Allow and Allow List.
Fix for issue where Chrome does not load with Identity Shield enabled.
Does Webroot's "noscrypts.exe" work with Windows LTSC?
One more question...
Why in earth, when Webroot finds a malware and you click "clean" it cleans it and ask for reboot, which is fine. However, after reboot, it does a full scan if there's some "remnants" or so left.
On my 1.4 ghz dual core with 5400 rpm HDD this after-reboot-scan behavior takes ages. Is there a setting to disable that? Can't use the PC while it's checking whole system and it slows the system a lot.
Nothing against the software itself, it's actually pretty good, especially when paired with some 3rd party hardening software's, like OSA etc.
Not sure as WSA has Script Shield built-in and I never used "noscrypts.exe" Mainly for Business users 3 years ago: https://community.webroot.com/general-140/disable-execution-of-script-files-303074
v220.127.116.11 does take longer to scan and soon they will release v18.104.22.168 which will make scans go back to normal (It was a Test that none liked and they found it wasn't necessary). Even though it says it's released but the download link isn't showing v22.214.171.124 at this time. https://answers.webroot.com/Webroot/ukp.aspx?pid=12&app=vw&vw=1&login=1&json=1&solutionid=1098
I thought Brad was saying that Webroot was using this version to evaluate their selection of files to scan and methods of scanning for possible future tweaks to the scan process.
Am I perhaps misunderstanding what he is saying?
The info you see and what I get privately is quite different so if you quote from the Beta group post more details!
No, I'm just reposting Brad's latest post on the beta update thread, which you have gone on to quote in full—saying how I understood it, and also wondering aloud whether I might have misunderstood what he was saying. I was hoping for more clarification. But no, I don't have any more details than that.
Nice good job webroot
