Hello troubleshooter,
Welcome to the Community Forum,
Sorry to hear you are having problems with Webroot not scanning, Can you give me more details as has it been scanning all along and just stopped scanning? Is this A Windows OS or a Mac? Have you tried rebooting your computer and trying to scan again?
Please provide some more information so that I may help you!;)
