Controlling active processes

The Active Processes feature allows you to adjust the threat-detection settings for all programs and processes running on your computer. It also includes a function for terminating any untrusted processes, which might be necessary if a regular scan did not remove all traces of a malware program.

To adjust settings for active processes:

  1. Open the main interface.

  2. Click System Tools.

  3. In the System Control tab, click the Start button under Control Active Processes.

    The Active Processes (Advanced) dialog opens.


  4. For each process, you can select the radio button for:

    Trust: The process is allowed to run on your system.
    Monitor: Webroot SecureAnywhere will watch the process and open an alert on suspicious activity.
    Block: The process is blocked from running on your system. Do NOT block a process unless you are absolutely certain it is non-essential.

  5. If you want to terminate all untrusted processes, click Kill Untrusted Processes.
