Norton Security kicked out the WR.exe and removed the desktop icon on one of my laptops, but not on my other two laptops.

I had to whitelist WR for a couple of weeks before Norton would behave itself.

what irritates me is since webroot detected wr as a gen false positive they still save it on their database as previous carrying malware on the website. which is not true it was a damn false positive so in my opinion they are ruining the integrity of the website by posting that.

Better to report it through Webroot's official channels, once you get passed the receptionist, they should take note and fix it.
