WOOT!!
 
Glad that we finally have something for you!
 
Now, there is another step sadly.  Since you deactivated the Computer, it might NOT show up on the Console.  Check it, and if you do not see it we can Re-Activate it to restore the Console functions  :)

Yes, I did check it and it does not show up on the Console.

OK, I kind of expected that :)
 
We did a KB on how to deactivate, so you can guess what is coming I think.  Check this KB Article on how to re-activate :)
 
Once the PC shows up again in the Console (You might need to run a scan before it shows up), you might want to make sure that you set the Console for User Configuration.  Just click the PC in PC Security, and at the bottom is where you will set that.
 
I also would open WSA and go into Advanced Options.
  • Check your install options to make sure that it will show up in the Control Panel and the Start Menu
  • Check the Access Control and allow NON admin users to make changes and uninstall (If you are the only person who uses the computer).  This will keep you from having the same issue again.

 Fantastic job, David. That was quite a group effort that worked out beautifully in the end. Of course, she still has a little work to do but under your patient guidance, I am confident she will pull through. So glad to know ya!!

I right clicked the Webroot icon in my Download File and clicked on "Run As Administrator" and nothing happened.

Yes, that is expected.  As noted previously, if WSA is already installed then the download can't install as it is already installed.  
 
Try to follow the directions in this KB Article regarding how to deactivate a PC.  If you are able to access the Console and follow the directions, please reboot the computer when you are done.  
 
See if that will remove WSA so that we can then get it re-installed.

Theresa, 
 
Members that are Expert Advisor and above are able to apply the Solution credit.  Usually we do NOT do it ourselves, as we prefer to wait for the OP to verify that a suggestion worked and to reply back such.  Often the OP will mark the solution, but in this case since the OP replied that things are fixed I marked it.
 
 Really the solution is TEAMWORK. I had to know the questions and replies that everyone else before me had asked in order to get to my suggestion LOL.  Mine might have been the 'final solution" but it was a combined effort!
