Webroot..

.. full title Webroot SecureAnywhere..

It’s recommended by the ‘Geek Squad’ operating in Canada out of Best Buy and Futureshop, and is one of many anti-virus solutions for which one has to pay a subscription.

So, what to do when you are tired of paying for subscriptions? Use a free solution of course..

This is where Webroot gets to be a little awkward. The general thinking is that one should use a removal tool to rid yourself of what has to go and Webroot has one that doesn’t work too well. It tells you that it has but is not being entirely truthful. After running it,

The Webroot uninstaller which is in the same program folder as the working part also doesn’t remove everything, even after use of the official ‘remove everything’ tool, and it isn’t until you run Revo Uninstaller (free version) that you can honestly say that Webroot has gone.

Personally, I think that it is a little mean to have to run THREE uninstallers, one after the other.

The conclusion to all of the above is that Webroot is gone from the client’s computer, and Microsoft Security Essentials is now standing guard..
