Webroot's SecureAnywhere AntiVirus protects your system against all types of malware threats. This version offers you a 15-day free trial to evaluate the software and determine how well it suits your needs.

Pros

Quick detection and removal: The scan only took a few minutes and found two threats. The threats were deleted, and then a second scan was conducted to ensure the system was secure. This all took less than five minutes.

Advanced interface: The interface looks great, flows well, and is intuitive. The right-hand side of the screen allows you to access the various portions of the program, such as PC Security or Identity Protection, while all the relevant data is displayed clearly in the middle.

Identity protection: In addition to removing malicious software from your system, the program provides you with the means to protect your identity. The identity and phishing shields help ensure that your information is never leaked while you are browsing online.

Cons

Cumbersome installation: The trial installation is very cumbersome. You have to enter an email address to access the trial, but then instead of being emailed your activation code, it shows up on the website, and you have to copy and paste it into the installer.

Bottom Line

Once you get past Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus's installer, the software itself is very good. Combined with the great added features, it becomes a nice, all-in-one protection suite.

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