Hello @twinmmhaider 


If Webroot is Expired and you don’t want it anymore try this:


If you have an issue to uninstall open the RUN command and run this to Uninstall with the quotes and WSA must be running to uninstall:

"C:\Program Files\Webroot\WRSA.exe" -uninstall








Then reboot into Safe Mode and delete these Folder if they exist!


Uninstall WSA then Reboot into Safe Mode and Delete:


  1. C:\Program Files\Webroot Folder
  2. C:\ProgramData\WRData Folder (Hidden Area)
  3. C:\ProgramData\WRCore Folder (Hidden Area)

If you still want WSA and have a subscription that is valid then try a reinstall.


Please follow the steps closely!

  • Make sure you have a copy of your 20 Character Alphanumeric Keycode! Example: SA69-AAAA-A783-DE78-XXXX
  • Be sure you add your Keycode to your Online Console: Webroot SecureAnywhere Online Console
  • KEEP the computer online for Uninstall and Reinstall to make sure it works correctly
  • Download a Copy Here (Best Buy Geek Squad Subscription PC users click HERE) Let us know if it is the Mac version you need
  • Uninstall WSA and Reboot
  • Look to see if this folder is gone: C:\ProgramData\WRData and if it’s there delete it. (Hidden Area)
  • Install with the new installer, enter your Keycode
  • Let it finish it's install scan
  • Reboot once again
  • DO NOT import any old settings as you can set it up as you like once it's done

Please let us know if that resolves your issue?
