Optimizer program keeps running and wont quit putting message blocks on my computer

The Optimizer program runs all the time and leaves many message blocks on my computer that have to be deleted, saying the program is being run and will finish shortly but it never does. I cannot get it to stop this  even though I removed Webroot from my computer and reinstalled it. I am using Windows 10 and it is driving me crazy.

Hello @KENW 


Please try to uninstall and reinstall this way and if it doesn’t work then contact support like @ProTruckDriver has said!


Please follow the steps closely!

  • Make sure you have a copy of your 20 Character Alphanumeric Keycode! Example: SA69-AAAA-A783-DE78-XXXX
  • 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
