Webroot Anti-Virus Software Preventing WebLink Connect from Opening

On April 24th, 2017 @ approximately 4:00 PM EDT, multiple clients started experiencing False-Positive Virus notifications for the WebLink Connect Desktop Application while using the WebRoot Anti-Virus Software.  Click the following link for an NBC News Story explaining the situation in more detail: http://www.nbcnews.com/tech/tech-news/popular-antivirus-program-mistakenly-ids-windows-threat-creating-chaos-n750521

Webroot has acknowledged the problem in their software and is maintaining a detailed Support page advising their clients on how to address the situation.

Until Webroot resolves the problem, WebLink is unable to bypass the situation and make WebLink Connect open as normal. If you are a Webroot customer and must open WebLink Connect, your only course of action would be to use the www.weblinklogin.com browser access, or to disable Webroot and replace it with another, well-known and reputable anti-virus software, such as Windows Defender. WebLink International DOES NOT RECOMMEND operating your computer without an active anti-virus software installed and running.
