    "went from good to bad in a few months"

    September 6, 2008  |   By joedthomp

    Version: Webroot Spy Sweeper with AntiVirus 5.5

    Pros

    spysweeper was easy to install and use. it seemed to find most of the spyware, the price was right and the customer service was the best-the very best

    Cons

    combination of spysweeper and an antivirus destroyed the great spysweeper. at the same time the folks at webroot stopped taking phone calls unless the caller waited on hold for at least 1 hour, and webroot refused to answer email requests for help.

    Summary

    WebRoot SpySweeper is a mess now. Don't waste your money. they may be able to root out their problems but it is going to be a while. i was a loyal customer with webRoot for over 4 years; WebRoot is a mess now.

    "Might be ok, if it would run when installed."

    August 27, 2008  |   By donphan0509

    Version: Webroot Spy Sweeper with AntiVirus 5.5

    Pros

    Very inexpensive. I was able to purchase for $10 retail.

    Cons

    This is the worst software I have ever purchased. Once installed, it would never run. The installation process was slow, as it had to check the web site for the latest version. This thing seemed to drag the computer down until it failed to load.

    Summary

    I wouldn't recommend this to my worst enemy.

    "the best there is"

    August 9, 2008  |   By master_mind413

    Version: Webroot Spy Sweeper with AntiVirus 5.5

    Pros

    webroot is a great company itself been around for a very long time I have used there products for the last four years at least, and within those four years of use of spysweeper I have never had a problem of any kind with spyware there real time protection is a life saver, I have never used the AV so I can not comment on that

    Cons

    the scan does take some time I have it set to scan while im asleep, it can take several hours depending on how much data you have on the computer but that is not really a bad thing just means the program is thorough

    "Better than the others and worth the money."

    May 15, 2008  |   By TNTGungaDin

    Version: Webroot Spy Sweeper with AntiVirus 5.5

    Pros

    CNET only seems to have tested the trial version; I would NOT call that a full test. This is by far the cheapest way you will get any version of Sophos antivirus. In my experience it has detected Trojans and spyware missed by Norton 360 and AVG.

    It is well worth the price. If you stick with Norton, it will miss these Trojans, your computer will continue to malfunction, and you will end up paying $100-$200 for live tech support (and probably feel grateful). On the other hand, you can just get Webroot Spysweeper.
