WebRoot not in System tray& not hidden, Can't open program, Startup: status is "enabled"

Wondering if a virus disabled WebRoot from running. Yesterday Firefox said it needed to run an update and when I opened a new web page from a Search, I was warned it was a dangerous web site. I did NOT run the Firefox “update” and have not been reminded to run that “update”.

Today, Windows warned me that no antivirus program is running. WebRoot is not showing in the system tray & it is NOT hidden. Task Manager, Startup tab: WebRoot is “enabled”.

Go to Windows, Start, WebRoot Secure Anywhere to start the program, & nothing opens up.

Restart computer & same.

Control panel, Security & Maintenance, Virus Protection says “View in Windows Security”. Click on that & “Virus Threat & Protection Settings” says, “No action needed”. Shouldn’t it say something about WebRoot???
