    As far as I know, Webroot uses the Sophos engine, which is quite light and still has decent detection rates. Nothing bad with it at all! It's as good as any other anti-malware application. Prevx aside, of course (a highly personal thought). :D

    Long ago, word "XP" was attached to everything. These days "XP" seems to be replaced by "essentials". *Sigh*...
