Type the following into the Run box, 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 Files\Webroot\WRSA.exe" –uninstall

I contacted them directly via support, explained the situation and they helped - I made sure to state that I was migrating to X product, and needed to remove all traces of WebRoot Software. They were helpful. It took about a week via email support - but it worked out in the end. This was 2-3 yrs ago. A specific vendor told me that it may be impossible to completely remove it.

In the future. Take a system image prior to installing any AV if possible.

Best practice. You want remove a security product for another one, restore a clean backup made prior of any security apps.
