I get my internet from Cox, so originally I used the free McAfee they provided until my PC was infected and frozen. Office Max cleaned my PC and told me the McAfee I had was not good enough (DAH!). They sold me a better version of McAfee. When it was up for renewal, I researched the internet. Webroot was highly rated by CNET, PC Magazine and others. When I first loaded Webroot I think it found three threats that McAfee either did not find or did not stop. I have been using Webroot for three years with no problems. It has stopped or eliminated 30+ threats. It also takes up very little space on my computer and scans take less than five minutes. I can't imagine internet security being any better than this.

I have been in the IT world for several years, I am not the "IT Professional" that knows it all but here is my 2 cents worth:
I was sceptical at first, I have used Norton, McAfee, and a couple others that always worked great, the only real complaint I had was how much they bogged down my system. They tend to take up a lot of computer resources. After installing Webroot SecureAnywhere I was really surprised by just how little resources this program uses and does such a great job at the same time. I have been sold on this product for now, but as in all security software I usually re-asses products once a year to make sure I am still using a highly rated product.

I installed this program for a customer a couple of months ago. It appears to be effective at keeping malware out. I can't say that I've subjected it to any particular battery of tests to determine this, but so far, my customer hasn't called me to remove any malware from the computers he is protecting with Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Complete, and the software did receive an Editor's Choice award from pcmag.com for 2014. I like pcmag.com's anti-malware ratings, because they include tests from multiple independent labs in addition to their own, each using different testing techniques. No one product earns top scores from every lab, but pcmag.com believes that the products whose average scores across all the labs are highest will be most effective keeping the most malware out, and this makes sense to me.

Note that I do not expect Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Complete to remove or repel PUPs - Potentially Unwanted Programs, such as Conduit Search Protect and MyPC Backup. That's because although those programs are annoying, intrusive and will cause your computer to slow down and display unwanted pop-up ads, they are not technically malware, and most anti-malware products will not keep them out or remove them. (However, most PUPs are fairly simple to remove without buying or installing any security software. Usually, all you have to do is uninstall them from Programs and Features in Control Panel, and then reset your web browser to its default settings, and it's easy to find removal procedures online for the handful of PUPs that require additional steps to get rid of them.)

In addition, WebRoot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Complete is a very tiny download - just about 1MB - a plus for people with slow Internet connections. Thus, it downloads and installs very quickly. Installation is a snap, because the default settings are fine for most users. It does an initial scan of your system for malware at the end of the installation process. I've only installed it on clean systems, so I haven't seen how well it removes any malware it finds during this scan. (In my experience, the best tools for for keeping malware out aren't the best tools for removing malware and vice versa, and pcmag.com, the online magazine I consult for anti-malware product ratings, notes that most of their top-rated anti-malware products have difficulty installing on infected systems.) Once this scan is complete, the program quietly safeguards your system with such a small impact on Windows performance that you'd have to use a benchmarking tool to detect it.

I've only used this software on Windows computers, so I can't comment on how well it works on the other devices it claims to be able to protect.

Purchased and downloaded Webroot about 5 days ago. Completely removed the spy doctor from my system first. Download and install was seamless. Webroot ran an initial scan after set up and found 1 virus in my Windows folder. It has run about 23 times since installation and has not detected anything else. I have been surfing the net at some sites where spy doctor would find many issues after my visit. I am thinking that my old AV was letting stuff into my PC that Webroot does not. My PC is running fast and fine. So far, 2 thumbs up and I am very impressed!

Thanks to everyone who responded to my questions as I researched this product! And a very special thanks to Mike Rush of the Webroot Community Team who periodically monitors the reviews we post so he can proactively address any problems we may have. Talk about Customer Service!! Mike, you and Webroot Rock! Thanks!

Was not aware this product is non-returnable. This WebRoot made my IE crash. I run windows7 on 11 platform. Had to remove from my p/c and rollback. Tried to put WebRoot on laptop but would not except my product key. NOTE: This product WILL NOT and IS NOT usable on any Apple iOS phone. What really pours acid on my injury is NOW I SEE this product for $19.99, ouch. since I paid $15 more.
I will continue shopping on Amazon, I like this place, but I will be more vigilant with reading fine-print.
Thank You with reading.
****December 13,2015- Update Please. I like to bring all up to date. I responded back to WebRoot James and was very surprised, but also pleased. James pointed me in the correct area that was able to rectify my issues with WebRoot. Needless to say, I now feel like I should of contacted WebRoot prior to review. Have been so use to non-receptive help. WebRoot is now performing on my p/c & my child's lap-top. Was even given a telephone # with work order, if help was needed with other laptop issue. As with my Apple product, had loaded another app for WebRoot. Thank You James. Happy Holidays.

Sometimes it pays to heed negative reviews even if they make up just 7% of the total reviews.

I downloaded this security software about an hour ago. Unfortunately, it will not allow me to log into my account. Instead, I received an error message saying my email address was "unknown." However, this is the same email address Webroot used to send me a confirmation email. We are off to a rocky start!

I was reluctant to purchase the program because of complaints about poor customer service. A pleasant sounding gentleman named "James" has apologetically responded to almost all the negative Amazon reviews. I messaged him about this issue. I will let you know if kind, responsive, James offers any real assistance.

So until I actually receive some customer service, I can only give this product 2 Stars.

Update: 7-7-15, 5:41 CST
Kind, responsive James responded to my email within an hour. He gave me clear and concise instructions that worked! I therefore happily upgrade my review to 5 stars.

Good customer service means everything to me. Thank you James!

After growing up and realizing I couldn't use free Avast forever, I decided to try Webroot. 4 years later, this is still the one I come back to. I've noticed it catching and blocking more than norton, mcafee, or avast ever did (or at least reported). I used this on a friend's PC a few years ago to detect and quarantine a virus. I like the option to delete a file permanently with webroot. I'm sure it's no PGP shredder, but it's close enough for me. I can't say enough good things about Webroot. It runs well and doesn't affect my PC's performance. I highly recommend this to all my friends and family (who are always asking me to fix their tech).

This is by far one of the best security software I have tried. I am able to also sign up my phone through an app and this subscription code to locate and swipe it clean if ever lost, plus I have security on my computer which is very important. Several years ago an android phone of mine was destroyed because of a virus that attacked it and a computer was infected with a blaster worm that was terribly hard to remove.
I've tried several of the different big name security programs and had no issues but the added bonus here was that I am able to track and swipe my phone clean if ever lost, which is by far important- all my contacts, photos, emails are on my phone so if ever lost I wouldn't want a stranger having access to my private information. I am happy with this product and would recommend. It seems to be doing a very good job of protecting my computer and phone.

After having a Mac for several years, I finally bit the bullet and bought a gaming PC laptop knowing full well that I would have to pay yearly for antivirus but I figured I would be cheap and try the free antivirus first. After using several different free antivirus programs and my PC getting infected with trojans, viruses and adware, I finally decided to pay for a good antivirus. After a ton of research, I decided on Webroot simply because I read that it wasn't a huge program and it wouldn't bog my system down. After having this for several months, I can confidently tell you that this program does an amazing job protecting your system. I still had adware and a couple trojans on my system but after I installed Webroot, I kissed those trojans good bye! The system scans take less than a minute and the overall program takes up so little space, you forget its even there! Great antivirus!

This is my initial feedback after owning the product for a few hours. Super easy install. I just installed and the install was done and completed in the time of a click. Highly rated product that should provide good security.

I dumped one of the other name brand products because it is so bloated and causes more slowness problems on my PC then it fixes.

Update: Day 3
Backup features are very simplistic. For users who have windows 7 and a lot of pictures, videos, music or docs this is a problem since 25 GB is really small. OK for your critical docs but not for much else. No option to setup a backup to an external hard drive. For Windows 10 and 8.1 I can work around this since File History is easily configured but I still have one Windows 7 machine so I'll need to look for other options.
