    What's different from the 2009 version and does Webroot still use Sophos av and PrivateFirewall?

    You can find out about new features in the DEMO video from the link posted above.

    It looks like a total remake. Way to go, WEBROOT!! :D

    You have to register.
    All that I read on the linked page is a new GUI. Not necessarily a switch from the engine (Sophos) that is being used.

    It seems they have created something new on online banking, password protection, but are these what we are looking for? :p

    If I recall correctly, they use Sophos for their antivirus.

    Check av-comparatives. The detection rate is low, and it suffers from many false positives.

    Sophos' AV is actually an enterprise product. As such, it may be good (?), but not as a consumer product.

    I don't think that the Webroot suite is as good as a good AV/suite (av-comparatives).
