Please restore the files from Quarantine to resolve this issue.
1. From the system tray, double-click the Webroot icon.
2. Click the PC Security gear icon.
3. Click the Quarantine Tab.
4. Select the items in question and press the blue arrow Restore button at the bottom right.
Run a scan after restoring the files from the Quarantine to confirm it has been resolved.
Business users please read here.
the bigger problem is that there ARE SOME FILES that have been autodeleted without use of Quarantine, i have some but all i can recover through Steam Valadating

Between 12PM – 3PM MTN today Webroot falsely identified a safe file as a threat. Customers whose apps were trying to use this file during the 12PM-3PM MTN window could have received a red block screen and followed instructions to quarantine the good file.  To resolve the issue we need customers to restore the quarantined file. Please follow the steps below to un-quarantine and restore the file:
  1. Open the Webroot application by double-clicking the W icon found in the system tray at the bottom of your screen.
  2. On the Webroot home screen select “Scan My Computer.”
  3. Once the scan completes and you’re back on the Webroot home screen, click on the cog icon found next to PC Security. 
  4. Click the “Quarantine” tab.
  5. Note where the date and time of the files quarantined is shown on the right of the screen.
  6. Identify every file listed for Mon 2017-04-24 with a time stamp between 12PM – 3PM MTN
  7. Click the check box on the left hand side of the screen next to all the files you identified in step 6.
  8. Click the “Restore” button located in the bottom right of the screen to un-quarantine the file.
  9. When prompted “If you’re sure you want to roll back the selected entries…” choose “Yes”.
  10. Depending on how many files that are being restored this could take several minutes to complete the action.
  11. Return to the home screen and scan once more to make sure the issue is resolved.
What happened? someone flipped the wrong switch on a Definitions update?
When is this going to be fixed?
Webroot is still killing off my XYplorer.exe process even after reinstalling fresh from their site.  I know this EXE is clean.
This is ridiculous.

Hey guys, we could really use some help getting just one machine working.  
We could then take it from there.
One of our client's primary applications was quarantined and it's not restoring.  
Please help!
