    I am running Webroot Antivirus with Outpost Pro. I was wondering if the protected applications in Webroot will conflict with the protected applications in Outpost. This is for browsers and email. Thanks for any suggestions.

    I used that combo about a year ago, then just got tired of OP constantly asking for permission for this/that, then uninstalled and just ran WSA by itself. Been that way ever since, nothing but WSA running "Boss Hog" alone, no problems. :)

    Afaik they work differently, Outpost protects the important registry keys and files(passwords, cookies, configuration files etc) of a program, and Webroot protects the process of the program itself from keylogging, hijacking etc. You may need to put the Webroot process in the exclusions of Outposts Application Guard to make sure it can do it's job properly.

    Thanks. I think it will be ok. I have added webroot to the exceptions in Outpost protected applications.
