    Seconded. And well done for being so polite in your response - I was tempted to be a little more direct!

    Indeed, WSA is really light compared to other suites available today. I just tried the new KIS2012 and what a big difference in terms of the CPU usage. I had 1 infected file on my desktop and it needed to reboot twice and perform full scan to disinfect? Wow. Kind of stupid to go into this deep mode when it was just an infected file which I placed from my test collection. The GUI looked nice but way too much imo.

    Joe & Marco: Please continue to keep WSA as light as possible with superb protection. This is a one of the best advantage amongst other suites and your daily presence here is another bonus. :thumb:

    Thanks for the kind words :) Our goal is to be the lightest, fastest, and strongest security software and we are not satisfied until we exceed in all metrics.

    I am not sure that it is Lime colored? I believe it is more of a SeaGreen color!

    At least thats what it looks like in comparison to my signature color :D

    Lol, I think this is a great beta, but I find the color awful xD
    Perhaps there can be two versions, one with Webroots green and one in Prevx colors, like Px 3.0 has two colored versions, the normal one and blue SafeOnline one.

    Though you may find the colors attractive, they are difficult to see for many people. It's a contrast problem.
    I have have the same problem with some people's signatures and have stopped trying to read them.

    Hope I'm not stepping out of bounds w/this question:

    Has a formula been configured for license holders w/version 3.0 that have a considerable amount of time left to convert to WSA license when available? Or is it still being worked on? :doubt:

    It's still being worked on as far as I know but Joe has said we will get the same features from P3 but for the extras such as the firewall and so forth could be a small upgrade fee like when P3 added SafeOnline that was a small extra fee! But Joe will let us know when he knows! ;)

    Is it just the color that you don't like or the GUI layout itself?

    Thanks for the feedback!

    I don't like the interface at all , not just the color (couldn't care less about the color) , but the whole GUI is kinda "old" (can't find or don't want to use other words to describe it) , Prevx had much better GUI.

    I like Prevx 3.0 tray icon better! Bring the old tray icon back please! I haven't really made up my mind about the color. It just doesn't seem to be easy on the eyes.

    To avoid misunderstandings ;) , for existing customers, there is a chance that they have to pay extra for all functions in the new version o_O

    I also like the name Prevx better than SecureAnywhere. I would rather see the promotion Prevx 4.0 by Webroot than SecureAnywhere by Webroot. That's just my preference I suppose. I'm assuming SecureAnywhere was a descriptive phrase derived by Webroot marketing targeting users that have never used Prevx before. Prevx sounds like a heartburn medication, but I like the name lol SecureAnywhere may be a better name for the masses though.
