I tried to renew my Webroot AntiVirus with Anti-spyware. I ran into a compatibility issue with vista. I uninstalled both the firewall and antivirus, thinking this will help, and now I can not install...


HI There,

I recommend that you use Sytem Restore to go back to a point before the problem began.

1. Click the Start Button
2. Select All Programs> Accessories> System Tools and click on System Restore.
3. Select a point before you tried to install/renew your antivirus and restore to that point.

Your description of what you were trying to do was not completely clear to me so I have to guess. If you were trying to install a different product than Webroot, then you need to completely uninstall Webroot BEFORE you install a different anti-virus.

Also, after uninstalling Webroot, hold down the Windows key on the keyboard and press the R key. A run window will appear. Type in %temp% and hit enter. When the Temp File window appears hold down the ctrl key and hit the A key. All temp files should now be highlighted. Hit the delete key. A message may appear saying Windows cannot delete a file because it's in use. This is normal. Check the box in that window for Skip All similar files and hit ok.

Reboot your computer and then install the new Antivirus.

Good Luck

My webroot spy Sweeper is from on my computer what do I do . I tried to uninstall could not.


If you are using OS XP and above.. use the "Restore Utility" function to restore your system to the point before you install the software.

or

You can use a commercial uninstaller ie Final Uninstaller, Perfect Uninstaller, etc.. to uninstall the program.

Cannot delete webroot spyware


You are wanting to uninstall the program I assume. Download this free program. http://www.ccleaner.com/ During the installation watch for the page that included the Yahoo Toolbar and uncheck that box so as not to get that worthless toolbar. Now stop Webroot from running, You can open the program and stop it or open Task Manager and stop it there. Open CCleaner and go to the Tools Tab. Now click the Uninstall Tab and look for Webroot Spysweeper. Once you find it click it and then Uninstall on the upper right. Once it is finished open the Issues Tab. This is a perfectly safe mild registry cleaner. Scan for Issues and fix all it finds. Restart your PC and it will be gone. Now open CCleaner and from the help file find out all it can do. You will love this program.

I am trying to uninstall webroot spysweeper with antivirus but cant find it to remove it, what should i do?


Under normal circumstances, like any other Anti-Malware software, Webroot will protect itself. You cannot randomly shut down its service. You cannot use most external uninstallers.

Always try to uninstall it using Add & Remove Programs first (on XP) or Programs and Features (In Vista and 7), or the uninstall link in All Programs on your start menu.

If you are not able to find it in any of these places, get the official cleanup utility from Webroot directly at:

http://download.webroot.com/SSCCleanup.exe

This utility is made to cleanly shut down and clean up Webroot SpySweeper, Antivirus, and Internet Security Essentials and will even remove itself when it's done.

How do I stop webroot from running to uninstall? The virus protection isn't running and I want to reinstall. I am running Windows XP


If available, it is highly recommended that software be uninstalled through this option of Windows. To view a list of currently installed programs in your computer click Start, Settings, Control Panel, and double-click Add/Remove Programs. Within Add/Remove programs click the "Install/Uninstall" tab or click the "Change or Remove Programs" button.
