You may have another anti-virus program running which is preventing you from running your Wbebroot program. You can only have one anti virus program running at a time as they usually conflict with one another. With XP, you may have downloaded Microsoft Security Essentials. You can see if it's loaded and running by clicking on Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, and Services. Scroll down to the "M's" and see if the "Microsoft Antimalware Service" is listed. If it is, double click on it, and then stop the service by clicking on STOP. Then change the :startup type" to Manual and click on apply and OK. After you do this (or if the Microsoft Antimalware Service is not listed) perform the following.
Shut down yur PC and then power it back up. Immeadiately start tapping the F8 key until you see a menu titled "Windows advanced Options". Use the arrow keys to highlight "Safe Mode with Networking" and press enter. At the log-in screen click on Administrator and then click on "yes" to proceed into safe mode.
Windows will load witha minimal set of drivers. Now put in your Wbroot CD and try to load the program. If if dowsn't load, use "Add Remove Programs"in Control Panel to remove the program, After the program is removed, shut down your computer, start it again in safe mode, and then you should be able to load your Webroot software.
Finally shut down your computer and restart it in the normal manner, If Webroot still will not function, some other program you have loaded is interfering with it. You will have to find and remove the program or contact Webroot for further assistance.
