Hi I'm Austin with Top Ten Reviews, with our overview of Webroot AntiVirus 2010. When its flu season, most people think about getting a flu shot. Well for hackers and other mischievous programmers, it’s always open season to send computer viruses your way. Having some kind of protection on your computer is always a good idea and Webroot 2010 covers all your basics. The antivirus software runs 17 different shields to protect you from not just viruses but adwares, spyware, trojans, malware, keyloggers, worms, rootkits, browser hijackers, and trackers. Pretty much any kind of malicious software is kept off of your system. Updates are regular and automatic and among other awards, Webroot has won the Virus Bolt in 100 awards 39 times for detecting 100 percent of the viruses thrown at it. With such a thorough system, you might expect Webroot to be rather technical or complex to use. But the interface has straightforward menu options. Installation is as simple and for most users, the default settings will completely protect your system. Just make sure you have a little more than the minimal systems settings. Technically, you could run Webroot without much RAM, the box says you only need 256 megabytes. But if you plan on doing anything else on your computer besides running the antivirus, make sure you have at least double that. If you tried antivirus software before and had it slowed down your computer, you want to know about Webroot’s gamer mode. When you're watching movies or playing online games, Webroot gives you the option pausing some of its processes so you can make sure there's no lag time. Webroot also offers the option to back up and store files online. That way, even if you lost your computer in some kind of catastrophe, you’d still have your information. Now that’s security. If there are any problems, Webroot's support is available on the phone and online. You can even let a technician remotely access your computer to diagnose and solve issues. I'm Austin with Top Ten Reviews, we do the research so you don’t have to.
