    Looks like my beta license was also significantly extended.

    Same here, looking good for two years. And to be honest WSA was the first software I participated for beta back in those days. :)

    I am just back after having my computer in the workshop due to a failing hard drive. I was without my desktop for 2 days. Hopefully, all will be well after getting a new drive and having the data copied over onto the new drive. Also, just got the new WSA update when I booted up.

    Strange, that just after an update, a scan finds unidentified threats on my system. Also, why do I have to wait until the scan finishes, before I can see what they are?

    Good question.
    Maybe you worked the hard drive to death with all that security software running? :eek:

    Go look in the Beta Group there was a Warning of this in the current Beta so you should let them know!

    Thanks,

    Daniel :)

    I don't see why not and if you have any issues let me know as it will let others know! Just to let you know that WSA's Firewall is a Smart Outbound Firewall that works with Windows Firewall or a Third Party Firewall and the part about being Smart if infected or Unknown Malicious process try's to call out WSA will Block it. As you can see in my Signature I use Look'n'Stop Firewall on Win 7 x64 but when Win 10 is released I will be using WSA with Windows Firewall here is more info: http://www.webroot.com/En_US/SecureAnywhere/PC/WSA_PC_Help.htm#C4_Firewall/CH4a_ManagingFirewall.htm and why it doesn't show some of the features on Win 8, 8.1 & Win 10 Preview: https://community.webroot.com/t5/Id...tions-fw-control-in-Win-8-Win-8-1/idi-p/60003

    Thanks,

    I have Webroot av on one of my computers. Running well so far. My question is,why is there no need of a full scan? Or should you run one occasionally?

    Any reason for the version number update from 8.0.6.x to 8.0.7.x? Changelog doesn't seem that big.
