    im looking at webroot again... but something i love about eset is the popup asking if it should scan the device just plugged it. i a lot of times will use various usb drives to look at and analyze files to see what they are and also upload them to virus total or jotti etc... MOST av's would start deleting as soon as the device is plugged into the usb slot. but with eset i can choose to not immediately scan the drive. can this be done somehow with webroot. otherwise ill be having to turn it off directly all the time which i do not want to do because then it will leave the rest of the system open to infections.

    WSA waits for code to load from the USB stick so you shouldn't see the conflict other products may have had.
