    The best thing I can say about Webroot, and this is scraping the proverbial barrel, is that it is better than McAfee Internet Security Suite 2008 - Complete package - 3 users - DVD - Win - English. But only just. It took me about a week to get peed off with this instead of the twenty-four hours that McAfee survived. Webroot seems to want to 'update' all the time which involves paralysing your computer for an hour whether you want it to or not. Even when it isn't doing this my system still takes about five whole minutes to load a web page when it used to take about ten seconds. I'm not exaggerating.

    After all that time it didn't really do anything special anyway, it just "quarantined" some harmless cookies that are actually quite helpful to me because they remember my logging in details for a number of websites that I visit regularly. So I am inconvenienced because I have to input all those details again.

    The problem is the same, but the degree is less. I'm talking about processing speed. This little beast slows down my computer to the speed of a slug that has been sprinkled with salt, only I suppose it gets some points for not writhing about so much or lathering goo bubbles. That would be unsettling and hard to clean up after. The unacceptable bit is that on the front of the box Webroot proudly proclaims that the user "shouldn't have to choose between protection and performance". Why? Because Webroot decides for you! You're not having performance and that's that. See? No choosing.

    Also, I'm a bit suspicious of the alleged clean-up option that you get with this software.

    This package offers a good level of protection for beginners and advanced. The suite comes with a self-updating virus checker, a decent firewall, a secure file deletion tool and the opportunity to backup the contents of folders to a remote server (part of the licence).

    Out of the box the CD auto mounts and starts the install process. However the CD wasn't actually used. If you are connected to the internet at time of install it will go off and download the latest version. For the beginner you can just accept all defaults and be up and running in a few minutes. The more advanced user may want to make some tweaks. An "ASK" tool-bar (search engine) is an optional install (Default is to install), so you may want to watch out for it.

    The package integrates nicely into Windows security and switches off the Windows firewall. Webroots firewall will stop both incoming and outgoing connections (Windows only stops incoming). You will get a warning if something tries to get through and you are given the usual options to allow, refuse, always allow or always refuse. I tried to install a trojan keylogger and it got picked up straight away. I allowed the install and activated it, when it tried to call out it couldn't get through the firewall. So it does what it says. An option is also available to block/warn you of any software that tries to launch at startup, change homepage, add favourites or change security settings

    Tried a few other virus infected files at Webroot and they got stopped. A scan of my drive picked up a few false alarms on keygen files which was to be expected. There have been regular updates to the virus database and these are done quickly and cleanly.

    So, we have yet another anti-virus product. Is it any better than the vast array of others on the market? Hard to say. We all have to choose one at some stage and if you want to pay you might as well get one that suits you the best. This product is going to suit those who want things nice and simple. Casual computer users, technophobes and those that want things without fuss will appreciate this product. IT is by the far the simplest interface you are likely to encounter. On top of this, you are able to use the programme on three separate computers.

    Everything about Webroot Internet Essentials is technophobe proof. Installation, via a single disc, is as easy as inserting the disc and clicking "run installation" with the process itself taking about three clicks in total. There is a slight wait for updates to be downloaded, but aside from that it's remarkably simple.

    The program's interface is also very easy to navigate around and separates Internet security into four windows: "sweep", "shields" and "firewall" and "cleanup". Sweeps - otherwise known as system scans - are program searches that scan through your entire computer for viruses, spyware, trojans, tracking cookies etc. There is the option for full, quick and custom scans. A full scan takes a good while - over an hour. Make a cuppa and come back to it or do it overnight. Shields is the part of the program that pre-empts viruses and spyware problems and zaps them before they are an issue. So that means your browser, network, windows, startup and email are looked after. The firewall provides a discreet barrier to all the nasties. It sets itself up automatically and you rarely need to deal with it. Cleanup is a useful too to help de-clutter your browser and windows functions.
