    Hence the if, and my answer to that potential question.

    Chrome itself is already isolated due to its own sandbox. It's far from vulnerable, except when you manually install malware. Just read the thread I linked.

    Pretty much the same as what's laid out in my siggy. With the recent swift popularity and competition among imaging apps from XP to Windows 8 and both 32 & 64 bit covered, there's really nothing new in security circles but the same old same olds.

    It might be interesting if some new security startups were to stir things up again like when classical HIPS and Behavior Blocker zero day programs bucked the trend and forced the same old same olds to listen and answer their license holders concerns.

    But as it is the field is pretty much limited with what we have to choose from for the foreseeable future. And as long as no serious damage can be done anymore by malware given imaging and virtualization, there's not much use for expansion in the live security field for windows.

    So as the saying goes, if it's not broke, don't fix it.

    WSA is not supplementary AV. It can be used with other AVs. But it a strong standalone AV as well.

    I looked around the WSA website for info on it being a 'supplementary' AV or being able to be used with other AVs. I could not find any info on that.

    Can somebody point me to info on that?


    Thanks,

    I'm pretty sure it appeared elsewhere, but these are the only pages I can currently find:
    http://www.webroot.com/us/en/compan...htest-and-least-demanding-consumer-protection
    http://www.webroot.com/us/en/business/products/endpoint/
    http://www.webroot.com/us/en/business/products/user-protection

    Other websites, users, and my personal experience is that WSA is compatible with many other anti-viruses. It lets Avast quarantine first without disturbing it, and catches what's missed.

    removed WSA... I cannot customize my start button (using orb changer) when I am using WSA...(Aside from testing every antivirus, I also love customizing my desktop and themes) Now I will stick with just Avast Internet Security 2014 + USB Disk Security...

    Removal of WSA was not needed. Did you report the issue in the PrevX sub-form here, Webroot Community forum or did you open a support ticket? This issue could have been resolved in no time. I hope you would be back to WSA and will ask for help if you encounter such issues.:)

    Weird, it was Avast 2014 I had to temporarily disable (due to DeepScreen) to change my start button. WSA didn't interfere.

    well, swex told me that webroot acquired prevx. and afair, prevx itself was mainly used as a supplementary av, no? (i'm talking about realtime supplementary av's here, btw).

    Although I am not a safe surfer by any means,its actually because of my dad.
    He is perhaps the worst surfer that I have come across.So I must have a combo that might look overkill to someone else.

    Tried out avira 2014 for about 10 min. I like it alot but as long as the system scan after a detection and the inability to choose default actions is still there i cant use it. So back to avast:thumb:

    I meant it seems he uses them far more frequently than others, or at least it's the case this year.
