Editors' Review

+

Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security protects your sensitive data and personal information, without compromising computer performance.

Pros

Effective software: During testing, Webroot found some issues on the test machine and removed them.

Overall computer security: This software allows you to safeguard against future breaches by deleting temporary files and ensuring that deleted files aren't recoverable.

Clarity in design: The interface design is very well thought out. Even if this is the first piece of protection software you've worked with, you should have no problem figuring out how to use it.

Cons

Pricing structure: Webroot uses an annual fee pricing structure for its software. This is becoming more and more common in software, but it is a difficult sell in virus protection, when there are still virus protection suites that are available for a one-time cost or even no cost.

Bottom Line

When it comes to protecting your system from Internet threats, Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Securitydoes a very solid job and so is an option worth considering.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security 2015.

"Seems like a good product, but I'm not sure"

February 28, 2014  |  By chopperdcat

 |  Version: Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete 2013 8.0.2.118

Pros

Nice, fast online backup

The lightest AV I've ever used. Absolutely no impact on system performance

Scans entire computer in under two minutes

Cons

I cant figure out how this program works, or how to effectively test it.

The price tag.

Measly two week trial, need more time if i'm going to invest $80.00 in a fairly new, unproven technology.

Summary

Webroot no longer takes part in AV test dot org, Reps say its due to their product not being a traditional AV scanner and therefore should not, and cannot, be tested like traditional AV products..Skeptics say it's due to poor detection rates, whatever the case I like this product and I think Webroot is the wave of the future, just wish I could have it longer, two weeks is not enough to be convinced

Updated on Mar 2, 2014

I tested this product with 122 in the wild viruses on a test machine and Webroot only picked up 84 on an on demand scan, two required permission to access registry (which I denied) and the last one, win32:Delf-SQL TROJ slipped by and rendered my computer completely unusable, forcing me to reformat my hard drive. Its too bad, I really wanted to like this program, but right now it's just not ready for prime-time

On a side note, Avast free detected and quarantined all without incident while Panda Cloud Free missed only three..

"PRICEY BUMMER"

January 23, 2014  |  By meathook666

 |  Version: Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete 2013 8.0.2.118

Pros

Seemed to work great at first - removed possible threats and increased performance... but...

Cons

... a couple days after installing, Windows 7 would only reboot in a temporary profile. Tried uninstalling and profile still wouldn't come back. Had to restore operating system to a date before Webroot installation. No more Webroot for me!

Summary

Not worth the price. Basically, the old "bait and switch."

I believe most viruses on PCs are created by the hacks at virus protection companies. Any knucklehead can create a Windows virus. I recommend sticking with Mac, but if you can't, find a virus protection other than Webroot.

"Okay but can't uninstall Web URL Filter"

December 19, 2013  |  By Anonymous35

 |  Version: Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete 2013 8.0.2.118

Pros

1) Super fast so you can run it each time you log off the internet. 2) Very dynamic interface -- a lot of choices under advanced settings 3) pretty much self-explanatory 4) Quick access to guide

Cons

1) Goes from 35% checked to 70% checked in a split second. Seems to check different sections during each run. 2) Webroot URL application rates my own Bravenet ad-free websites low scores. These are self-written websites and mostly just wordy articles, so what's unsafe? Must be because I'm a free-lance writer, not a corporation. 3) Support is kind of flimsy. 4) Doesn't have very good uninstall options. 5) When it warns against a page and you allow it to shut down, it closes all the other webpages.

Summary

I've only had Webroot for a few months. It is okay, I'm not sure it is catching everything, but it hasn't deleted anything important yet. I don't understand all the terminology too well.

"Didn't Detect Serious Malware"

November 29, 2013  |  By kudzaidotnet

 |  Version: Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete 2013 8.0.2.118

Pros

Fast Scanning
Sometimes Detects
Unobtrusive

Cons

Didn't do its job for me. Now reaping
Detects infected USB Flash as Clean

Summary

I purchased Webroot secure anywhere, and recently have been infected with a virus which corrupted all my Microsoft word .doc files. The virus adds the extension festaazulcorrupta onto every doc or docx or xls file. Webroot didn't detect it. Also there is another virus which came onto my SD card which add 2 folders titled:

Hot Fotos
My Musik (2013)

When i right click and scan the SD card, its still being found as clean. This was very disappointing. When i bought it, it was rated as #1 by Cnet. Now I'm upset. Should just stick with Norton since its been around for long. Now busy downloading alternatives

"Don't touch it with a barge pole!"

November 06, 2013  |  By parkyathings

 |  Version: Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete 2013 8.0.2.118

Pros

None at all

Cons

Webroot deletes files created by other software. There is no warning and no explanation. All you know is that software you have had for years suddenly starts going wrong and it can take you ages to figure out that its this crappy thing that's messing you up.

If you have not yet downloaded, don't. If you've got the trial, bin it and get something else. If you've already parted with your money, you can partially salvage the situation by....

"Installs and runs smoothly"

August 27, 2013  |  By -wbm

 |  Version: Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete 2013 8.0.2.118

Pros

Just no problems. Have been using for about two months. There is little to change from the default installation.

Its ability to stop Malware is only know three ways: Initial scan, any problems later, and reports from quality lab tests. So far it has passed all three.

Cons

None, I'm a happy camper.

Summary

I'm a happy camper.

"Easy to set up and manage account."

July 30, 2013  |  By choog8

 |  Version: Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete 2013 8.0.2.118

Pros

Very light on system resources, fast scans on basic computers, stays up to date with cloud resources, it actually works for people with basic needs.

Cons

I have been using Webroot for 2 years now. I installed it on every machine I own. Did have a problem with brothers computer when it installed but I'm pretty sure it's because he had a lot of garbage he downloaded of the internet.

Summary

Webroot is a really good solution for people with integrity on the internet. If you are not downloading stuff you shouldn't be downloading, Webroot will make sure you stay protected at all times. I'm not sure why people are saying it's pricey, I picked it up the first time for around 40 dollars. The second time I picked it up at Best Buy as their deal of the day for 10 dollars. You just have to know how to shop. The end.

"Good until you want to uninstall--then it's HELL!"

July 03, 2013  |  By chasmanIII

 |  Version: Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete 2013 8.0.2.118

Pros

Runs well, but since I'm not an expert, I can't give a detailed report.
No complaints, though.

Cons

The BIG problem came when I decided to try another program after my subscription expired. I kept getting annoying pop-ups...very frequently. I finally got sick of the pop-ups and uninstalled Webroot Secure Anywhere. That DID NOT STOP the Pop-ups! I can't get rid of them and they are very annoying.

Summary

This think is rude and annoying. It may work, but any company that sells a product that keeps hounding and annoying you after you have decided to end "your relationship" deserves to be punished for their bad behavior!

"DO NOT USE!!!"

June 23, 2013  |  By scanner1132

 |  Version: Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete 2013 8.0.2.118

Pros

NONE!! NOTHING PRO ABOUT IT!

Cons

Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete 2012/13 IS NO GOOD AT ALL AS FAR AS REMOVING SPY COOKIES AND REGISTRY MALWARE OR ROOTKITS.

Summary

TO MUCH MONEY FOR WHAT YOU GET, WHICH IS NOTHING. WEBROOT SPY-SWEEPER USE TO BE THE BEST. I COULD USE SPY-SWEEPER AND IT WOULD FIND ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING. I PURCHASED THE Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete 2012 AND IT COULDN'T FINT ANYTHNING. I KNEW I HAD A VIRUS, MALWARE, ROOTKIT OR SPY COOKIES BECAUSE MY COMPUTER WAS ACTING STRANGE AND MY WEB PAGE WAS AS WELL. I DOWNLOADE A FREE VERSION OF MCAFEE STINGER AND RAN IT. WHEN IT WAS THROUGH I HAD 24 SPY COOKIES, 2 MALWARES IN MY REGISTRY. I USED THE MCAFEE TO CLEAN UP THE PROBLEMS AND NOW MY COMPUTER RUNS GREAT AGAIN. " CAUTION " ALWAYS BACK UP YOU PICTURES, DOCUMECTS, MUSIC OR ANYTHING YOU WANT TO SAVE TO AN EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE OR BURN TO DISC. I DON'T KNOW WHY WEBROOT GOT AWAY FROM A GREAT THING TO GO TO SOMETHING AS SORRY AS THEY HAVE NOW.

Updated on Jun 23, 2013

I MEANT TO SAY MCAFEE STINGER WHICH IS A FREE TRIAL AND DOWNLOAD LOAD. JUST GOOGLE IT.

I ALSO MEANT TO SAY FIND , NOT FINT.

"Small, fast, efficient, but pricey."

June 17, 2013  |  By LazyJones1

 |  Version: Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete 2013 8.0.2.118

Pros

Tiny, quick, does what you want it to do.

Cons

Sometimes a little over-zealous. Pricey.

Summary

If you can live with the price, and an occasional false positive (better safe than sorry, right?), this is definitely a wonderful package.
