Have you tried going to control panel and go to add/remove programs and select the Webroot program and uninstall it?

    Follow this in removing it:

    1) Download Startup Control Panel (http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml).
    This small utility will help you remove any startup entries left behind by Webroot.
    2) Run regedit and delete the Webroot key in HKLM>Software
    3) Delete the Webroot Folder in Program Files.
    4) Search for webroot and delete any other files/folders that remain.
    5) Use CCleaner to delete any other temp install files

    Hope that helps........

Close any programs you have open.
Click on START>SETTINGS>CONTROL PANEL
Look for Add & Remove Programs (double click it)
Let it populate the list.
Go down the list until you find Webroot, click on Remove

It will go through the uninstall routine, and may ask questions along the way (just read through them, usually the highlighted answer is the one you want).
Once it is done, you'll want to reboot the computer.

If there was more then one reference to Webroot in the list, you do want to remove that also.

Please let us know if you need any additional help.

Webroot ativirus will not install took control of my comp.since


Webroot Anti-Virus and Kaspersky Anti-Virus are two programs that do the same thing and therefore can lead to problems when you have both of them installed. If Webroot is the one you want to install then try uninstalling Kaspersky first by going to Start/Control Panel/Uninstall a program, then find Kaspersky on the list and highlight it and choose uninstall after this finishes, you should reboot and then try again to install Webroot.

I recently updated my version of Webroot with Spysweeper that I got in 2009 to the newest version and now it takes over an hour to do a sweep, and is stuck on an update. The progress gets to a certain...


easy way.
uninstall the webroot and spyweeper restart computer and then install the new version.
I think because you updated the programs it left some old **** in background so you need to uninstall and reinstall your software.

I have webroot anti-virus and it consistently is being turned off after I get on the internet. Is it likely malware or a virus causing this? Actually, it is the firewall that is being turned off.


Chances are it's a virus or malware. Download an anti-virus program to a disk or to a flash drive. Run it and see if you can find a virus. Here's a link to one of the best anti-virus progams. (In my opinion)

Hope you solve the problem. You might also try Malwarebytes

Try to access an anti virus online scanner then try to access windows update if you are unable to access these sites you have Win32.Worm.Downadup.Gen. It prevents any access to any anti virus software and windows updates it also turns off any installed anti virus updates. Removal is actually really simple just go here

Webroot won't load


SPEAKING WITH MY EXPERIENCE GET SOMETHING ELSE.

FREE SPYWARE
Download Spybot Search & Destroy. Restart computer, then run Spybot to see what spyware comes up, AND DELET IT.

FYI---Virus Protection-- 2 programs of virus protection will conflict with each other and will actually cancel out the protection. SO just download one.

Running Spybot Search & Destroy with EITHER Avast or Avg (great Free virus protection programs ) will keep a computer in good working condition. FREE

HERE ARE SOME LINKS, THAT WOULD BE BETTER:
NEW *****Somthing new FROM MICROSOFT.*** 2009 ---Security Essentials
http://www.microsoft.com

*****Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.5.2 ****

FREE SPYWARE
http://www.download.com/Spybot-Search-De…

****Avast ***FREE ANTI VIRUS PROGRAM
http://www.avast.com/eng/home-registrati…

****AVG ****FREE SPYWARE PROGRAM
http://www.free.avg.com

**Ccleaner*** FREE
http://www.download.com/3120-20_4.html?q…

***Malware**** FREE
http://www.malwarebytes.org/.


$ *** KASPERSKY ***
http://www.kaspersky.com

There are alot of $ anti-virus and Internet security programs out there,


ie: Norton, McAfee, Panda, Bitdefender. If you would like to pay $ then get ***Kaspersky***-- 2010 , I feel that is the best for your money.

REMEMBER TO KEEP UP THE DAILY MAINTENANCE ON ALL OF YOUR COMPUTERS.!

Good Luck.
