Hello Isiok,
Welcome to the Webroot Community,
To uninstall Webroot you can go into the Control Panel/Programs/AddRemove/Webroot/Uninstall.
If you cannot uninstall from the Control Panel then please look here
Make sure you run as Administrator in command prompt (right click and then select 'run as administrator')
If you still have issues then you can Submit a Support Ticket and they can assist you. Free of charge.
Hope this helps?
Thanks for your response.
I followed the procedure given to me as it is below. After stage 3 nothing came up, it was empty.
What do i do next, cos the person is regulating my work.
For Windows Vista and Windows 7:
  1. Open the Start menu by clicking the Start icon.  
  2. Type the following into the Start Search bar, exactly as it appears below.  Note: This path is for the default location. If you installed the program elsewhere, be sure to modify the path accordingly. "C:Program FilesWebrootWRSA.exe" –uninstall  
  3. Press the Enter key on your keyboard.  
  4. When prompted to uninstall, click Yes.
