Can't Uninstall Webroot SecureAnywhere on windows 8

I've tried the solution found on this forum, problem is... i don't have it on my controle panel [appwiz.cpl] nor a "uninstall" shortcut... can you guys help me?

 

I know there is a command for uninstall it... at the present moment i've tried this one as i'm on a x64 machine:

 

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

 and it only bring me the wrsa window again... so i might be doing something wrong. Care to teach me?

 

BTW, my wrsa is NOT password protected... so... hopefully it'll be much less painful to remove it.

Welcome to the Forms SHJordan!

 

Do you have access to the MyWebroot Account Console?  If you do, you might try logging in there and deactivating the computer.  

  • Go to PC Security tab
  • Click on the computer if it is listed
  • Go to Advanced Options tab
  • Click Deactivate Computer.

 

Here is a screen shot of that panel:

 

Deactivate

 

After you Deactivate the computer, reboot the computer.  This is supposed to send a signal to the computer to remove WSA.

You said that you just registered.. did you receive the email to confirm the Account activation?  You must follow the directions in that email in order to finish activating the Account portal.  The system will not let you log in until after you have done this.

 

If you did not receive the email to confirm the registration, there might have been a delay in activating it or you might have mis-spelled your email address when registering.  If this is the case, you might want to Submit a Trouble Ticket

Re: Can't Uninstall Webroot SecureAnywhere on windows 8

You might want to submit a Trouble Ticket as I noted in the last reply.  I do not think it will allow you to register again as the key code will be set for in use.  There might be either an issue in the registration, or the email address you used.  A support tech should be able to help resolve this.

Don't worry, they will. Also, in a little while there should be a Webroot Mod or Admin logged in here who may be able to help assist with this as well.

Re: Can't Uninstall Webroot SecureAnywhere on windows 8

My apologies that this topic appears to have slipped under our radar. Looking at the related support case, it looks like you took care of this yourself with a Windows 8 refresh. It's good to hear the issue is resolved. :smileyhappy:
