    Because it's the weekend and the person that does it only works Monday to Friday. I know Joe could but I think he leaves it up to a Team member then it shows on Webroot's website with the link that pegas posted. ;)

    Did not get it yet, even if using the built in updater under "My Account"
    I hope it solves my problem with NOT letting Comodos file: cfp.exe to start.
    I have to disable WSA and then start Comodo and then enable WSA again.
    The file is allowed in WSA but it does not help.

    You can use this download link: http://anywhere.webrootcloudav.com/zerol/wsainstall.exe Also if you have your MY Webroot Account setup there is always a download link in there. And as usual any update takes a few days to roll out to everyone. ;)

    There were a few attempts recently to use WSA in illegal manner. So the enhanced license check eliminates those attempts.

    Amit sorry but I can't give you more information. Had I did it, it might serve as a guide to others and believe me I don't want to impel for illegal acting. Only Joe, if he would be willing, can shed more light as he was closely involved in the enhanced license check functionality.

    You know, WSA and I also mean former Prevx is a one of applications which has been very successful on the field of fighting against piracy. I recall there were a few attempts to obfuscate licensing of Prevx 2 but they never worked. At Prevx and Webroot they have been doing the great job to secure their solutions. Webroot is making huge investments in venture to make WSA better with every new build and the bulletproof licensing system is a must and you can be sure WSA can boasts with such tight protection. So you don't need to be afraid that while you are a paid user there are others out there who enjoy WSA without having paid unless they are trialling WSA :)

    You're right, BitDefender really should look into that. Four FPs on four versions of the same software? That's pretty bad. But all just part of why I don't use them. At least when WSA FPs on something, the fix is global and quick. Within hours or less in my experience.

    It would be worth having their customer report this to them as they tend to answer faster when coming from someone with a real license.

    Thanks :)
