Another individual (who happens to be the owner and chief editor of 7tutorials) has reviewed Webroot SecureAnywhere Essentials recently and is advising people who follow his site to "stay away" from it... ...owner and chief editor...you'd hope someone with that title would have a bit more awareness... Although amazed by the installer size, and the memory used being lower than any other suite this person has tested, not to mention the fast scan time, he was not impressed with the protection. He claims to have filled a USB with malware, scanned it, and Webroot detected and cleaned everything; but when he unplugged it from the Internet, Webroot found nothing. He also claims that Webroot is not suitable for advanced, power users, because it is not configurable enough. And, he is upset that Webroot offers no way to exclude files from detection. Now as you probably know all of the above complaints are non-issues, and those features all exist! Furthermore, Webroot has advanced, intelligent heuristics that would have caught all that malware if he actually executed it. He acknowledges that it is a cloud product; then he knocks it for not detecting dormant files when the Internet is disconnected. Are you stupid? Webroot isn't configurable enough? Wow. Compare Prevx 3.0 to WSA and tell me that again. Look at all those settings you moron! And you CAN turn off automatic malware remediation in the real-time shield settings! And PC Security > Quarantine > Detection Configuration. Are you stupid? Care to fully explore a product before you right an extensive review on it? And to top it off, towards the bottom, he claims AV-Comparitives was going to test Webroot but didn't publish their results because of "issues with their cloud"...is he making this up? I certainly did not hear anything about this. I was under the assumption that Webroot will have detection results in the next AV-C test round. Perhaps the only thing of real concern in his review is that he claims he pre-infected himself with a particularly nasty rogue antivirus, and Webroot failed to detect let alone remove it. Of course, he provides no details of which incarnation of this rogue he used, nor if it was a zero-day version or not. I thought I should debunk this before someone posts this and gets everyone worried that Webroot didn't perform well in this person's "test". I'm going to go to Home Depot and buy some weed killer spray to stop these home grown tests. http://www.7tutorials.com/security-everyone-webroot-secureanywhere-essentials-2012 Read with a grain of salt and a bag of popcorn as it's mostly entertainment since almost everything he says is wrong information. Bottom Line: Part of reviewing a product CORRECTLY is to spend some quality time with the product and get to know it, like it is your friend. This is what really separates Matt Rizos from the rest of the online, individual testers. Obviously, this guy who reviewed Webroot here did NOT spend enough time to even learn the basics of the GUI. This to me alone makes this review invalid.
