Downloading and Forcing Updates

Hello. You have arrived at an outdated topic. Please click this link to be redirected to the updated Endpoint Protection Admin Guide.

Unlike previous versions of Webroot software, Webroot SecureAnywhere automatically downloads and installs all updates by default. When we release the version update, it is load balanced across our global user base and can take up to 72 hours to apply to all Endpoints

Each time you run a scan, your Webroot communicates with our cloud and download and applies any new determinations or updates to your machine. As long as your computer is connected to the internet, your protection is always current, as SecureAnywhere handles updates as soon as they become available.

Note: For additional information, see the Advanced Commands table in the Issuing Agent Commands topic.

To download and force an update:

  1. Log in to Endpoint Protection.
  2. Click the Group Management tab.
  3. In the Groups Pane on the left, select All Endpoints, then in the right pane, select one or more endpoints.

    Note: You can also use the URL to download the installer locally on the endpoint, then run it manually.
  6. Follow the download wizard to install the latest updates.
