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.

Can't scan my system. webroot seems to be blocked. I was on the net when my pc suddenly restarted. Since then pc games are wrong colors, I can't reset my pc to an earlier time than the last time I turned...


"...webroot seems to be blocked..." and the other misbehavior are signs of one of the new "AIDS" type viruses (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). These nasty little beasts are written to disable your anti-virus software.

Fix #1: download rkill.exe to a flash drive on another computer. Insert the flash drive on a USB port on your computer and double-click rkill. If the rkill log shows it has halted a program, that is probably the virus. Now you can update and run webroot.

Fix #2: sometimes the system is too seriously corrupted to get it to run its anti-virus program. In that case, take the hard drive out and install it as a slave drive or secondary drive in another computer after you update the anti-virus software on that computer. Start the antivirus program and tell it to do a full scan on the infected drive. When that is done, you can put it back in the e-Machine.

Some viruses attack components of the operating system and the anti-virus programs disable or remove those components, including copies in the System Restore files. So, just in case you need to do a repair install, while the other computer is scanning the disk, see if you can get your hands on a Windows install CD for your version. Alternatively, if you can get the computer to run in Safe Mode, you can go through the virus scan log on the computer used to do repairs to see what system files were affected. Copy the ones from the other system to your flash drive and put them in the corresponding location on the e-Machine (note: both systems must have the same version of Windows, e.g , XP Service Pack 3, for this file replacement scheme to work).

You will have to try booting from your Operating System CD and "Repair Windows." Once you get the computer up and running, you should boot into Safe Mode and install "SUPER AntiSpyware," "AVAST Home Free" and Spyware Blaster (links below). These will have to be downloaded from another computer because you will not have access to internet while in Safe Mode. After installing all three, reboot the computer, booting into Safe Mode once again, and run the three programs.

Security adware virus Multiple virus programs (webroot/norton/etc) have been unable to completly remove this virus. I have a Dell Inspiron 520 with Vista 64-bit. Thanks


If MalwareBytes Anti-Malware tool and Avast anti-virus boot scan do not rid your system of the virus, you may have to remove the hard drive from the infected computer and using an adapter, attach it to another computer such as a laptop or another desktop. The adapter attaches to the hard drive and then uses a usb for the interface. They can be bought at computer stores for around 20 bucks. Once you have attached the infected drive, double click on the "My Computer" icon and then right click on the infected drive icon. Scroll down until you see the selection for either "scan with MalwareBytes" or "Scan with Avast". ONce these scans are complete, replace the hard drive back into the original system. Another great scanner is Super AntiSpyware. All these are free downloads at www.filehippo.com

I run scans on my computer every day but McAfee pops up and says that my computer is at high risk for having a virus. I have Trend MicroVirus on my laptop already and I don't want to have to buy McAfee....


u have to choose which anti virus you want to use. Y? because having more than 1 anti-virus in your PC will result to slow in operation of your PC and conflict in your anti-virus. you have to uninstall one of your installed anti-virus. hope this would work for you

It is a virus or spyware try running a antivirus or antispyware prog if that doesn't help you will have a choice live with it(easy, but annoying), take it in (easy,but expensive), or save all your important files and reload everything (little more difficult, but cheap). Hope that helps you out. Either way you do it make sure to always have antivirus and antispyware running, you can get good ones for free. here are some links.
