I see that the WSA executable is still in Program Files, but it's not in Add/Remove programs.
Clicking turn on WSA downloads and launches the latest installer.
Trying to uninstall through CMD (c:program fileswebrootwrsa.exe -uninstall) launches the installer as well.
Another problem is that I don't have a spare license anymore, and it won't accept a trial license, so I can't install it in order to uninstall again.

You might contact support, but you might also have luck using Revo uninstaller listed in the Software Removal Tools thread.
I let it do the initial scan, rebooted to be safe, uninstalled via Start Menu - Webroot - Tools - Uninstall and rebooted.
No more Webroot files/folders in Start Menu, Program Files, ProgramData, and WRkrn.sys and WRusr.dll are gone as well, so it seems to me that the Uninstall was performed succesfully :)
If someone can't remove WSA because it's not listed in Programs & Features or All Programs use this in the Commandline or Run Dialog: "C:Program FilesWebrootWRSA.exe" –uninstall making sure that it is run in an elevated Command Prompt/Run as Administrator!
It will only work on 2011 and previous versions.
The tool is only for older versions, so doesn't work.
When I tried to uninstall via Command Line, I already made sure to run CMD as Admin.
And I'd rather not use 3rd party uninstallers, especially with a broken install of a security product.
I've read and experienced in the past with products that have antikeylogging etc that it can screw up the keyboard/mouse bigtime if the antikeylogging driver is not removed properly.
TH, about your last link:
Option 1 does not work, since there is no GUI to open.
Option 2, I've tried already, not in Safe Mode, but the result is the same.
Update: replied to PM 🙂
Daniel let me know he had you in good shape :-)
Trouble Installing or Uninstalling
I know all too well that use of 3rd party uninstall utililities on most other security suites can indeed result in disaster.
