If you want your computer to work like new, you need an antivirus which keeps the system safe, while not slowing down the machine. That is why Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus is an excellent pick for you.
Webroot is great at blocking malware, viruses, ransomware, etc in real-time, before any attack can be executed.
The highlight of the antivirus, is actually the SecureAnywhere part, which literally means you can manage your antivirus and checking on your PC’s security remotely, from anywhere around the world. All you need to do, is to just access the SecureAnywhere website and login to your account, from any web browser, be it Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, or Google Chrome.
The interface of Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus matches its performance with an equally good and simple design. You can run a scan manually using the program, but Webroot does run scans on a regular basis on its own.
The scans in Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus are fast, lightning fast really. It takes about a minute for a scan to finish, something which other antivirus programs cannot compete with. The memory usage during scans is negligible, so you can use the computer like normal.
The antivirus, believe it or not takes 15 megabytes to install on your computer, and runs on Windows XP and all upgraded versions including Windows 10. Mac users can use it on OS X Lion and above.
The antivirus has a firewall which blocks applications from pinging unknown servers, while the network monitor can log the internet connections made to and from on your computer. You can also edit the program’s settings by disabling the shields for the antivirus, web shield, or the identity shield.
The latter, is the module in Webroot which prevents malicious websites from attacking your computer. It also serves as a phishing blocker, to prevent your financial and personal data from being stolen.
The webcam blocker in Webroot can secure your computer’s camera from being accessed without your permission by malware, and this blocking is done without the user’s intervention, i.e. automatically.
Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus is available for Windows and Mac computers.
