This review is from: AntiVirus 2015 3 Device 1 Year PC
Fast. Fairly good job keeping away malware. Minus 1 egg, because if you get fooled (like my dad did) into downloading & installing malware from a scam pop-up window at a website that says "You need to install Flash Player" (or some scan like that), then Webroot won't stop you from installing that malware onto your computer (nor will the automatic scans clean it off -- you CAN use Webroot's thorough "Deep Scan" to clean it off, but you have to initiate that manually, since it's not the default scan setting.
A very annoying pop-up reminder "Renew your subscription now!" will start appearing 30-DAYS BEFORE your subscription expires, and will keep coming back EVERY SINGLE TIME you boot up your PC. If you get annoyed and buy another Webroot CD and enter another 1-year subscription code before your 1-year subscription expires, you get 12 months from that date you entered the code ONLY -- it DOES NOT add 12-months MORE to the end of your subscription expiration date. So then you lose your last 30 days or so of paid subscription. Thus, it's best to simply wait until AFTER your subscription expires to enter your new 1-year subscription code. (But then, you'd have to deal with that annoying pop-up every time you turn on the computer, even though you still have 30-days left on your subscription.)
