Webroot SecureAnywhere Review:

Ease of Use

Installation of Webroot Internet Security is simple, with easy to follow instructions provided.  The user interface is also very easy to use.  It gives just the right amount of information at any given time.  There is not so much information that you cannot understand it, nor is there too little information for you to know what it is that you need to be doing with the software.  If you need more information you can easily display it through resizing or clicking on more info.

The user console is customizable, so that you can view only the information you want to see at any given time. The default settings are ideal for most common users of the software, although it can be easily customized to provide more monitoring or protection of your computer.  Some of the features are available through the internet, so you will have to set up an online account with Webroot during installation.  Overall, the Webroot Internet Security Complete is easy for anyone to use right out of the box.

Features

There are many great features of Webroot Internet Security Complete.  One of the best features is a free online backup that allows you to store your most precious files online.  This is a great feature because it makes it easy to restore your most needed files in case you do get a computer debilitating virus. 

Webroot Internet Security Complete is particularly helpful for gamers and power internet users.  If you are playing online games or watching movies, you can easily turn on the gamer mode of this software.  This mode temporarily defers scans, updates and other functions until the mode is turned off.  This way you do not have valuable resources being taken away from what you are doing online in order for the software to function.

Secure browsing is another great feature.  This feature allows you to see how safe a website may be before you ever enter it.  If you click on a link that may be dangerous, you will be redirected to a red or yellow warning page.  This way you can avoid the site completely.  Search results are also marked with a red, yellow, green or gray marker letting you know if the site is safe, or if it has not been scanned as of yet.  This way you can avoid clicking on links that lead to dangerous or suspicious websites.

Effectiveness

Webroot Internet Security is extremely effective in finding and removing malware from your computer.  It scans every file and folder, and effectively removes even the data files and registry entries for every piece of malware found.  It can even remove manually altered malware items.

Drawbacks

The tech support offered by Webroot leaves something to be desired.  Many users complain that their problems are not adequately solved or completely ignored by tech support when they call or submit an online support ticket.  Additionally, the scan can come up with false alarms, even on the secure browsing.  Finally, Webroot Internet Security takes so many resources that web browsing is severely slowed when it is running scans, updating virus definitions, or removing malware.

Overall rating 
 
4.3

While Webroot may be highly effective and easy to use, it is also a drain on computer resources. The gamer mode makes up for this downfall to some extent, but if you forget to turn the gamer mode off again you could be left unprotected. Overall, for a budget friendly internet security software package, Webroot lives up to its standards. We gives the software 4 stars, for its effectiveness and easy to use interface.
