Can anybody tell me if webroot secure anywhere will run ok with KIS2013 please.
I can't say for sure because I have never tried. If I'm not wrong, some time ago, Kaspersky would make you uninstall Webroot in order to install their AV.
It should do. Search for Baldrick on here, and you'll find he uses the two with no problems. I think it is advisable to install Kaspersky first then WSA.
This. I was running both alongside each other up until about a month ago. Only reason I switched is because KIS license ran out, and could not find any good deals.
Hmm maybe kaspersky is enough on its own.I see webroot has a firewall so i may just leave it.
Not sure i need webroot as well actually.
I have the two running well on one of mine with W8 x64OS, and will be installing them on another now Download crew have a 60% off KIS.
I see webroot has a firewall component too.
Would i be correct in saying this needs turning off.?
Or is it some sort of network outbound monitoring module.?
The latter, then you do not need to turn it off.
Ive installed the 180 day trial version.
Just hope it runs ok alongside kaspersky.
I know Kaspersky is good, and honestly, I have given up on Eset. If I were not using WSA full time it would be Kaspersky. I would use MSE before the Eset crap.
Its probably overkill using wsa also.Kaspersky is a fine product and not running heavy here at all.
I get too many service plan customers with repeat infections on Kaspersky. When they come in with an infection on Kassy for the third time, I strike them out and put WSA on there for free as part of the service plan so I don't have to deal with infections from them anymore.
Plus honestly I haven't seen many speed improvements on Kassy since the Passmark eval* ( http://www.webroot.com/shared/pdf/Webroot_SecureAnywhere_vs_antivirus_competitors_27Sept2011.pdf ). They do a little better now, but nothing beats Webroot for lightness.
*PassMark summary (Out of 98 possible points):
Webroot = 90
ESET = 62
Norton = 62
Trend = 51
AVG = 45
Kaspersky = 43
McAfee = 38
