SOURCE: when computer is first turned on, pop up shows webroot not activa

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 is an Internet security company based out of Colorado.
The company, founded in 1997, offers Internet security programs for businesses and home users.
The Webroot Internet Security Essentials and Webroot Internet Security Complete programs include a firewall that's designed to monitor incoming data and filter out potentially unsafe data.
Consequently, Webroot does not recommend that you disable the firewall.
Nevertheless, if you want to use a different firewall or if the firewall is blocking legitimate data, disable it with a few clicks.

Launch the Webroot program.
Click "Edit Settings" under "PC Security" in the "Home" panel.
The PC Security panel opens.
Click the "Firewall" tab.
Check the circle next to "Allow All Traffic." The Webroot Firewall is now disabled.

Auto re-newal keeps stating it is expired.


There is a distinction between the program and the subscription for updates. Updates usually get purchased for a year at a time. YOU want the updates, so renew.

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.

Can not get webroot antivirus to do a scan. It does not expire until May 2011


Get a better anti-virus solution: use Avast, it is much better. Go to www.filehippo.com to download it. Once you are at filehippo, you will find many different, free security downloads, but Avast is the best one there (including Microsoft's Security Essentials).

For Root Kit issues, try RootkitRevealer
