If you want more control over scans and shielding when Webroot SecureAnywhere encounters a specific executable file, you can use Detection Configuration to specify one of the following actions:
Allow. Ignore the file during scans and shielding.
Block. Stop a file from executing or being written to your computer.
Monitor. Watch the program to determine if it is legitimate or related to malware.
Detection configuration acts as an override to Webroot SecureAnywhere's default scanning and shielding behavior.
To use Detection Configuration:
Open the main interface.
Click PC Security, then click the Quarantine tab.
Under Detection Configuration, click the Configure

You can add executable files to this list. (Executable
files typically have an extension of exe, dll, sys, drv, or com.)
To add files, click the Add File
