Yeah according to the latest tests Secureanywhere is actually lighter on system resources than MSE and has has far better protection.

Guys the version of Webroot software that you're describing that exhibited this behaviour was not SecureAnywhere but rather their older 7.0 platform of products which were admittedly from a former employee a bit ****.

Webroot SecureAnywhere however is fantastic and deserves all of the praise it receives.

Hi NyaR,

I'm fairly certain that the problem you are seeing on that slow PC is not related to Webroot SecureAnywhere and is instead either a software conflict, infection or other issue. As both Copernic and Cork1958 point out, we pride ourselves on the fact that SecureAnywhere is very light on system resources.

I am interested in helping you find the cause of the problem though, and to ensure that Webroot SecureAnywhere is installed and protecting that computer properly. If you could please submit a Support ticket, our technicians will help you resolve the issue. Please click on this link to open a ticket: https://detail.webrootanywhere.com/servicewelcome.asp

Can't be WSA fault. Maybe some other software form GeekSquad. Stop posting untrue horror stories. There's no antivirus around LIGHTER than WSA in terms of RAM usage, boot time etc...

I just worked on a brand new computer that GeekSquad had pushed/sold and installed this software on. It was absolutely unusable. Boot up took over 20 minutes to clear the "mouse busy" cursor, and after that opening even simple things like My Computer took over 2 minutes for the window to even pop up. I saw it had this crapware on it and uninstalled it immediately. After the uninstaller rebooted the system, operations were back to normal and the computer was blazing fast. Your mileage may vary, but this is useless software, and a total waste of money.

Hi MacD@ddy,

Since the computer you worked on is new and took 20 minutes to boot along with the other symptoms you describe, then there is seriously something wrong with that PC. While there is the possibility that SecureAnywhere was not installed properly and is affecting it, I suspect that it has to do with other problems given the severity of the issues you describe . Not only does SecureAnywhere install in under 1 minute, scan most drives for threats in under 2 minutes, but it is also very light on System Resources and would not cause a PC to take 20 minutes to boot or 2 minutes for a window to open. I would strongly suggest that the owner of that computer contact Best Buy and the Geek Squad for assistance.

A few weeks ago I got a call from a medical office complaining of a virus on their computer and saying it was incredibly slow.

I arrived on the scene and immediately pinpointed the problem as Webroot Antivirus running at 99% CPU usage.

This was an old computer that they did not want to upgrade because it should work fine, they're right, as soon as webroot was removed usability of the computer returned.

I wouldn't use this one anyway, wouldn't use anything GeekSquad tries to pander.
