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!!!

I just went through this this afternoon, I spent 8 hours removing and updating and loading McAfee and running it too.
Webroot is a bad program, it is hard to remove and some of the componets just cannot be removed unless you do a search for the file and then delete it....if you need a certain dll then the anti-virus should detect that and remove or quarantine it.
I would suggest that you remove Webroot, and install another anti-virus program...I swear by McAfee, it removed over 30 problems or quarantined them, it works and is well worth the money spent....If you have Comcast, it is FREE to download on all of your computers in your home....just part of the internet service.
PS...Uniblue registry booster is no good, and another one that is hard to remove...it has spyware too.

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".
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
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).
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 different than the two listed above, please contact Webroot Technical Support for an alternative option.
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.
