Webroot start up

  • 5 September 2021

I recently purchased a new Dell 8940 and since then my Webroot Secure Anywhere Complete refuses to load up at start-up, I have uninstalled it and re-installed it 3 times and still it is not working. This is the first time I have every had any problems with Webroot in all the many years I have been using it. Please help without any mega technical talk, I would hate to find something other than Webroot after all these years.

Hello @Tobaner 


Try a clean reinstall doing it this way.


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
  • Go into Safe Mode and Delete these Folders if they are there!
  • C:\Program Files\Webroot Folder
  • C:\ProgramData\WRData Folder (Hidden Folder)
  • C:\ProgramData\WRCore Folder (Hidden Folder)
  • Boot back into normal mode
  • 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

Info in case you don’t know how to go into Safe Mode:


Please let us know if that resolves your issue?


This worked like a dream, thank you very much for the nicely explained bullet points which were easy to follow. You effort is very much appreciated.
