You must have received a new key code with your recent purchase of Webroot? Open the Webroot interface/click on the little COG to the right of MyAccount/Enter your new keycode/click activate.
Let us know if it worked?
Welcome to the Community Forums.
As Lyle advised you should have just been able to enter your new keycode in the location he identified withing the existing installation of WSA and that would have activated your new subscription and if there was any update needed to get you to the latest version of WSA that should have followed.
However, you have said "I went and removed/uninstalled older version but it still doesnt work". So do you know if the uninstallation of the 'older version' completed successfully? Did you then try to install the 'newer version' and if so then what happened? Did the installer prompt you to enter your new keycode, etc?
We need a little more information to understand in what state your system is in re. the installation (or not) of WSA, before we can advise as to what next steps you should take.
Many thanks in anticipation of your response.
What has already been described is the advice already given as to what should need to be done to remove/uninstall WSA.
What Ewin has alluded to is essentially correct in that I do believe that there are some Registry-related leftovers but these are usually insignifcant/have in my experience never caused a problem in the past...but if you would like I could try to dig up some information on them...always with the caveat that one plays/tweaks the Registry at one's peril.
Thanks for letting us know and glad to hear that the issue is sorted for you.
