    I upgraded from Prevx 3.0 to WSA beta, Essentials beta. No problems, it was the fastest update install I' v ever seen. It completely removed all Prevx. The only problem I had was it detected gmer as malware. I upped the heuristics high. I am a raving para because I really believe the internet is wild west without lawmen.

    I reset to default. No problem. After WSA was released, I uninstalled it, downloaded a release copy, inserted my code and it installed quickly, seems less than a minute. It had the correct number of days, from Prevx, remaining in my license.

    I wondered how it would work with Online Armor Premium since Essentials has a firewall. One of the many questions I asked support was this. I really bothered them, asked dozens of questions, and received courteous, precise, and correct responses and answers.

    The Essentials (and Complete) firewall is really a firewall supplement; that's all needed since the Vista and 7 firewalls are improvement over that of XP. WSA E and C harden the installed firewalls even more. I have an apartment in the City, house in smaller city, and a vacation home in Florida, so the Essentials and Complete licenses are attractive. I dont have an android phone yet but soon I expect. Webroot should consider retaining the price they have for Antivirus but for three computers.

    WSA is Prevx 4 but plus some Webroot
    Both the old Webroot and old Prevx were highly rated and regarded.
    I believe this is better.
