Deactivating a PC removes it from the PC Security panel and removes the SecureAnywhere application from that computer. You may want to deactivate a PC if you:

  • No longer use a PC that had SecureAnywhere installed.
  • Are replacing a PC with a new machine and you want to transfer the license.
Note: Deactivating a PC is not reversible; that is, you cannot reactivate a PC without reinstalling the software

To deactivate SecureAnywhere on a PC:

  1. Open your browser and go to
  2. Log in to your account.
  3. Click the PC Security tab.

    The PC Security panel displays.

  4. Click the PC you want to deactivate.

    The Security panel for that computer displays.

  5. Click the Commands tab.

    The Commands panel displays.

  6. Click the Deactivate button.

    The Confirm window displays.

  7. Click the Confirm button.

    The system removes the computer from the PC Security list, and uninstalls Webroot SecureAnywhere application from the computer selected.
