        Hi, Something peculiar happened when I used ‘Windows Repair Toolbox’. I clicked ‘Final tests’ -> ‘Quick Check’ and a WebRoot window was displayed. I clicked ‘Agree and Start’. At this point I had to leave the PC for a while. When I came back about 90 minutes later there were over 200 WebRoot windows stacked up. The task bar was unresponsive so I did the three finger salute to pull up the task manager. I then spent the next 20 minutes killing enough WebRoot process so the task bar would respond. At this point I restarted the PC. I have no clue what caused this, but I wanted to make others aware not to leave the window unattended.

        This is terrific! I use many of these tools every day but having them all in one place is so handy.

        Hi – I tried the toolbox and can’t seem to get it to work. Many of the tools provide an error message indicating the app isn’t downloaded or in the repair tool folder in My Documents. Running Windows 10 Pro on a Dell XPS 8940.

        Thanks!
