Webroot doing a Prevx but that's OK. I was able to DL it without being on FB
1) You can download Prevx FB w/out going to FB
2) Prevx FB is not a limited 6 mo. free trial; it is free with no expiration
I know that, but i guess some might not.
I wasn't directly comparing the two. Just pointing out that W are now offering on FB as P already have done
Hmm I may have to test it out, I saw it a while ago and I was wanting to wait to v7 came to test but that may be a while.
I'll try it. Any known incompatibilties with other security software?
Thnx for the heads up ...
and as asked by NoIos any incompatibilities ?
Just to make sure it's clear this free offer is for Webroot Antispyware, not the new Webroot Internet Security. Presumably you would need to add AV and use the Windows (or another 3rd party) firewall. If they were offering the suite I would definitely try it, but they're not
I don't want to go off topic, but if I remember correctly, someone said Prevx SafeOnline doesn't work well with DefenseWall. True or false? (because DW is my baby )
This thing worth to use in my setup in my siggy?
Online Armor is/was the only one that I knew having some compatibility problems with DW (and it may be fixed by now?).
It detected system explorer as an adware
Really? On Win7 x64 ( from your signature) ?
yes ..and it detected unlocker as trojan in my friends pc which is win 7 x32
Actually i have it installed on my Seven x64, and i can say the last version of Spysweeper is very light, and run smoothly with third party security without down the Internet surfing. Tested against malware sample and it detect all of them.
This new version is for me very improved than the last
About 8000 ko process memory for the engine and the interface user.
Years ago I actually paid for SS. Not asking this in an A vs B context, but does it have any components that would make a PC with anti-virus of choice more secure than one using Windows Defender and anti-virus of choice? Secondly I've installed Prevx but it does run my 1G of RAM on this XP SP3 Pent4 machine quite high. Two processes are totaling over 20,000k in Task Manager. Is this pretty normal? Thank You!
The two processes from Prevx in Task Manager here total less then 10,000k on Xp Home.
I ran Webroot Internet Security 2011. I only ran it once a month and I never liked it. Lots of false positives and false whistles on leg. programs. Got tired of the hassles and went back to prevx off facebook free. I paid for webroot and like prevx free better.
I would say the false positives came from Sophos AV engine. It uses Sophos AV engine in combination with SS's engine. Sopho's has had a lot of FP's in the past. I used Webroot's SS for several years in the past, and can't remember ever having a FP from SS. I have not used SS in 2 years so i could be wrong.
