I was part of the beta testing, then I ran the stable version for a few weeks too. It is by far, the lightest security solution that I have ever used. It runs two processes totaling about 3MG's of RAM. The machine is as snappy as with no AV installed.

That being said, I personally did not test its protection abilities because I ran it on a real test machine, and not a virtual one. I have seen some independent tests and it ranks somewhere around avast! Free in terms of detection. Other tests have shown it worse, and of course other tests have shown it better. If it were cheaper, I would think about running it, but it's way too expensive for my taste.

I love it, I have used Webroot for years and have never had a problem, Their products have caught and removed anything that has even thought of infecting my systems, the new Webroot products are still doing the same, so far nothing has got by the program, it has stopped quite a few threats, it has also stopped a few things that it called threats like driver downloads but I expected that and it was easily fixed.

I've been running Webroot SecureAnywhere Essentials now for about a month and love it! It is by far the lightest antivirus program I have ever run. Support forum for Webroot is on the Wilder's Security Forum under "Official Prevx Support Forum". With Webroot merging with Prevx both support and product are 100% better.

I agree, the software is very fast and light on memory.
