Self Protection prevents malicious software from modifying the Webroot SecureAnywhere program settings and processes. If Webroot SecureAnywhere detects that another product is attempting to interfere with its functions, it launches a protective scan to look for threats. It will also update the internal self protection status to prevent incompatibilities with other software.
We recommend that you keep Self Protection at the Maximum setting. However, if you use other security software along with Webroot SecureAnywhere, you should adjust Self Protection to the Medium or Minimum setting. The Maximum setting may interfere with other security software.
To change Self Protection settings:
Open the main interface.
At the bottom left, click Settings.
In the Settings panel, click Self
Click a radio button for Minimum,
Medium, or Maximum
Note: If you want to turn off self protection, uncheck the Enable self protection response cloaking box.
Click Save All.
