Need Assist with Whitelisting Important almost daily used Software. Webroot Deletes Exe.

I've tried 2x Antivir softwares before Webroot & didn't work so now 3x Antivir Softwares deletes the AnkhbotR2 exe. I can't be online without active Antivir & still have 300+ days on Webroot's license. I love Webroot SecureAnywhere cause of it's nice UI design & being very lightweight. So i guess i have to wait for response that solves this problem. That to arrive here at Webroot Forums. AnkhbotR2 is legit secure Software that i've supported with donation & using it almost daily or well until this deletion happened again.

I could reinstall the client to same folder & then get exe file back & all settings that i've made are safe, but Webroot would delete it again in 2-10 days 😕 There's no warning popup about dangerous software, but just direct exe deletion :/ Please let me know how to whitelist AnkhbotR2. At bottom of this page is section "Bot Not Starting after Update" & there situation is detailed.

Kind regards: Sad Webroot Supporter.

Good Day.
Big thanks for 1st msg & to deliver this forward 🙂 Also nice to see that was looked into so soon. Hmm what you mean rescan to get newest data. I need to do Rig scan & then send something to you ? After that i can reinstall AnkhbotR2 & hope that it won't delete Exe again ? If does then get back to you i will. "Yoda moment" x) Reply from one of the Ankhbot Support members:

"We keep sending webroot false positive mails but it keeps getting flagged and they don't allow for exclusions which is pretty poor". After that he recommended another Antivir & moments after he said that maybe this friendly Admin can get this sorted out. Personally i like Webroot most & wanna support you. I hope that Ankhbot would soon be finally whitelisted on your database :)
