Webroot Secure Anywhere

Webroot is pretty amazing, but it scrutinizes everything, even already established programs and files that are determined as safe.  Sometimes you just need to whitelist an application to speed things up a bit, especially when dealing with a corporate network.

Webroot utilizes the hash of a known executable to identify it.  To get the hash of a file or program to whitelist it in Webroot as an override use powershell and the command below.
Get-FileHash X:\Folder\FileName.exe -Algorithm MD5
(where X is the mapped drive letter, Folder is any folder name, and FileName is a program name.)
When powershell dumps the MD5 value, copy and paste it in to the override box. - it's pretty self-explanatory at that point.
