Webroot Installation or Upgrade Error

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -


My computer had been repaired in best buy last year and they have installed Webroot on my computer. My kids are always using the computer so I don’t know if they've messed up the settings of Webroot because every time I open my computer that error always welcomes me and restarting is not the solution.
