We will see what Webroot has to say, but again I think the reply above is correct. Browser addins install differently and do get removed from the browser management not from a regular uninstaller.



Thank you for the article Miroku! I will read it more carefully and bookmark it for reference!
Thanks for your input, but the answer should be a Webroot solution.

 

After a Webroot uninstall there are quite a few registry entries that remain.  The LastPass password version INSTALLED by Weboot should be cleaned by Webroot, my opinion.

 

I restored a backup from before Webroot to clean up the Webroot un install.

 

I'll wait for another answer.  I have two other machines with Webroot.
Hi,

 

Maybe isn¨t much help but take a look here.

They should be removed during the Webroot uninstall process?  Yes?

 

 

Probably not.  The browser extensions are an add-on that is not a part of the main software install.  They download separately following activation of the feature from within the software for whatever browsers are currently installed, so I would not expect to see them uninstalled with the main program.  As I say, I am not well versed in IE 10 and Windows 8, so I am not sure how such toolbars are normally removed from IE 10, but I know it is within the browser settings of Chrome that one goes to in order to remove browser add-ons.

Good morning!



I am not positive regards to IE 10 as I use Chrome, but I believe you can delete extenstions and toolbars from the settings (?). In Chrome I can, and it is my assumption IE allows the same.
