Uninstalled, but contextual menus remain
I uinstalled WSAC through the Programs and Features area in Windows as normal. Yet, the contextual menus on right-click for Scan with Webroot and Permanently Erase with Webroot remain, even though they do no work. I cleaned the reg with CCleaner, and also ran the Webroot cleanup tool, but they are still there. How do I completely remove Webroot from my system?

It says for the Pro Version in the link below: Full 64-bit compatibility - Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 so if you say it works well that's good but maybe not completely?
Here are both versions: http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html
They have changed it, at least for us common folks. 🙂 I believe the 30 day demo is correct even in some situations that the key code was entered wrong or not activated correctly such as with the Best Buy Subscription version.
Thank you for the reply 🙂
On the PM, find a post or reply from JimM and click his name to view his profile. There is a link there to send a PM right by where you would click to add him as a friend.
Let me check the Windows 8 thing...or you might try deactivating via the Console as well. It does the same thing as the proper uninstall.
First, as WSA is so small, I would try thr reinstall and then uninstal from the Start menu first. Decent chance that will work. It it doesn't, you have only used a few minutes and you can then go ahead and try the Revo. (This is my opinion.. I have not used Revo so I do not know how large or complex a program it is.. )
As for the email thing, I assume you mean email address you use here in the community. You might send JimM a PM about this as it is likely only an Admin can fix this. (?)
The Control Panel is how the OP originally uninstalled, and it left the fragments. This is not normal, so we are looking for any other way of uninstalling that may help avoid the same problem.
Like Daid said just try to re-install WSA and then uninstall through Control Panel like you normally do. Please make sure you're connected to the internet during the uninstallation.
