    I see many here mentioning Webroot Security Anywhere. Its costs $40 a year, is it really that much better than the free AV's and even something like Trend Micro that I notice scores well at the test sites? Any special features to warrant paying $40 a year?

    I think WSA is the lightest AV I've ever tested.

    I was tempted to try it because it is the lightest AV but because of the massive false positives I decided to stay away.

    Try it yourself. I get almost no FPs.

    IMO, avast! Free and Bitdefender Free Edition are the best antivruses.

    Good Evening! Not only is it light on system resources...it's Service Dep't in my opinion ranks if not at the top,then in the top 3 of providing a Positive Customer Experience. It provides Excellent protection...and isn't a Prima Donna...in that it doesn't cause conflicts with Competitors Products. I've been using it when it came from the U.K. and was known as Prevx...I now own the license for Webroot Security Plus...a Superb Product...it's the one App that's a keeper. I wish I could say that about some of the other apps I've used the past Two Years. In my opinion...take it for a test drive...you simply can't go wrong! I must admit I have experienced roughly three false positives...these past two years...a very small issue and something that Webroot takes care of immediately. Try it...You Will Like It!...Sincerely...Securon
