Hi there.
Its just a reminder that you have to activate the software either by a product key or online, webroot will not work properly until you have done this.
If you don't want the program at all, uninstall it.


Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

Regardless if you installed from a disk or downloaded online, there should be either a registration or activation key in order for it to work. Look on the box or check your email (spam folder possibly) to see if you can find it. Let me know if this helps or not! :)

Webroot and spysweeper 2011 no longer puts cookies into quarentee section


I have the same problem: Webroot 2011 no longer detects and quarantines cookies. If you go to the Webroot Support page and type "no longer quarantine cookies", it offers the generated issue: "You want to know why Internet Explorer cookies are not detected in a scan"; to which it offers the following answer: "A recent Microsoft security update (KB 2559049) [...check your Windows updater, I got this security update on my computer on August 10th...] prevents Webroot security programs from identifying spy cookies on systems where the update is applied. Although these cookies cannot be detected, your core antivirus and anti-spyware protection is not compromised. Viruses and spyware are still blocked. Webroot engineers are actively investigating options to restore spy cookie detections and any solutions will be provided in an upcoming release." (This statement is not dated; I am looking at it now, August 28th, 2011, on their Webroot Support page.) I have Windows Vista operating system and Webroot 2011 version 7.0.11.21. My Webroot Antivirus with Spy Sweeper hasn't swept up anything in scans in the last couple of weeks, but it did block an internet site last night; so I think it's still working. Hope this helps!

Error message


What type? Please describe. However is the error is upon installation here are some tips:

The Windows Installer Service is required to install Spy Sweeper/Webroot AntiVirus 5.8 or Spy Sweeper/Webroot AntiVirus/Webroot Internet Security Essential 6.1. However, by Microsoft's design, the Windows Installer in not available in Safe Mode. On rare occasions Safe Mode installation is still desirable, so Webroot has engineered a method to make this possible. This method uses a file called "SafeCore.exe".

If the installation is performed using "Safe Mode with Networking" and an active internet connection is available, the Version Guard feature of our installer will automatically download and run SafeCore.exe. No action on the part of the user is required. Otherwise SafeCore.exe will need to manually be placed in the same folder as the standard Webroot software installer.

(Example: if the installer file is already on the Windows desktop, copy SafeCore.exe to the desktop as well, and then run the Webroot AntiVirus/Spy Sweeper/Webroot Internet Security Essentials 5.8/6.0 installer to begin the installation process).

To obtain a copy of SafeCore.exe, please first check what version of the Webroot software you are trying to install. Right click on the installer and choose Properties, and then click on the Version tab. A File version will be listed.

  • If the file version is 5.8.1.55, please click SafeCore.exe to download the SafeCore files specifically designed for 5.8.1.55 and place it in the same folder that the installer is located in.
  • If the file version is 6.1.0.128, please click SafeCore.exe to download the SafeCore files specifically designed for 6.0.2.22 and place it in the same folder that the installer is located in.
  • If the file version is different than the two listed above, please contact Webroot Technical Support for an alternative option.

If the computer you are trying to install on does not have a network connection, it may be required to transfer this file from one machine to another using removable media such as a USB drive or CD-ROM.

If installing Spy Sweeper/Webroot AntiVirus/Webroot Internet Security Essentials 6.0, the Backup Component may not install completely in Safe Mode since it contains components that require the Windows Installer Service to install completely. You will need to re-run the installation in normal mode to activate the Backup component.

Compatability issue


On Feb. 12, 2008, Microsoft released an update that fixed the recent compatiblity issues between Windows Vista and Webroot Antivirus/Spy Sweeper that were a result of a previous Windows Jan. 8, 2008 update.
Recommended Fix:
To fix this issue, update your copy of Windows Vista with the latest updates available as of 2/12/2008. For many users, Windows Vista will update automatically at its next scheduled time, but the update is also available as a manual download. See below for instructions on how to update Windows Vista.
We also recommend updating your copy of Webroot Antivirus/Spy Sweeper. The latest version does not experience any compatibility issues and it is generally recommended that you update your software to the latest version in order to ensure maximum security and protection of your PC.
