Failed install wrote 100 (or so) Gigs to hard drive


Hours ago I tried to install a new activation key to webroot anti-virus for the mac. I entered the activation key, then every few minutes I got an error message telling me that webroot crashed. I later learned that with every crash huge amounts of data were written to my hard drive. I'm guessing that over 100 Gigs got written before I was able to get the problem fixed. How do I locate and remove all of this data?

I have the same issue on both my macs. The one mac I just ended up doing a fresh install of the OS and haven't install Webroot yet as I'm sccared it will do the same thing. I'm never home to be able to call them like hey want me to do. Did they manage to solve the issue with you? And could you possibly share it with me?

Hello bbjornson, Welcome to the Webroot Community Forum. :D
I don't know if it has been solved. You can put in a Support Ticket which is open 24/7 and ask. I'll also ping some of the Webroot Employees to see what they have to say about this. This is the Holiday season so they will be back on the Jan 2 to answer on the forum.
