Another good way to test to see if Webroot is cuasing the issue is to shut down the program. If the program is shut down and the issue is still occurring then the issue should be be occurring becuase of the Webroot software. To test, please follow the steps below.
1. Right click on the system tray icon for Webroot (Down by your computers time)
2. Choose "Shut down"
3. Put in either the characters or your password if you set one up
Once the icon is gone from the system tray that means Webroot is shut down and cannot affect the computer any longer. So now you can test to see if you are having the same issue.
If the issue goes away after shutting down the Webroot software that is something we are going to need to get more information on. You can send our support team an email regarding the issue and we can start to help you troubleshoot the issue. Below is the steps to send us an email.
1. Open Webroot SecureAnywhere
2. Go to "Help & Support"
3. Go to "Open A Support Ticket" under "Product Support"
