    Well.

    That's a heck of a SKU for them. XD

    Okay, so that's AV-Only version plus System Optimizer functionality. Your Complete version has More Stuff that is helpful and probably cost more.

    You've got the same stuff that has plus more. Just a lot of gamers don't care about sync or passwords on web pages.

    Extra trivia: Kit and Jim and Kat (Not Cat) made a major push toward marketing Webroot to gamers before leaving the company.

    You're good to go with WSA Complete - as Techfox1976 said, it is the base AV product with System Optimizer included.

    This has been a long time coming and we're very excited for it as we think WSA is a perfect fit for gaming systems.

    Off topic, but IMO they did a good job so why did they leave? Unless it's confidential of course but it doesn't hurt asking :)

    gaming AV?
    Webroot isn't going the same route like others company's...is it??

    If you are a gamer...in my humble experience, Webroot AV, keeping your operation system and third party software up to date...

    Jim was overworked an under-appreciated by his own words, so he moved on to Bigger and Better Things.

    Kit found a bug in a web system. Possible somebody didn't want him to find it, but an error was made and corrected, however the error was of a nature that some people pushed for his dismissal. Those people are gone now, it was a mess left behind. He's doing okay last I heard. Took him 18 days to find new work and makes more now, though he's underpaid as such.
