I am a recent subscriber to Webroot.  For years I had been with AVG (paid version).  Initially, they gave good service.  As so many 'good starters', this, too morphed in to another venue.  Very disappointed, I searched for an alternative.  A not so good experience with one, encouraged me to try Webroot.  Two computers, a laptop and desktop.  Well secured, and once established, all is running seamlessly.  This is what it should be.  Set it up, and forget it, trust, and feel secure that all is well.
I got in to 'computers' with a Kaypro, CPM OS in the 80's.  Not many can identify with this.  I went from CPM, to DOS, to Windows etc etc, through XP which I loved, dodging the dogs (Vista, Millenium) etc., and now settled well in to WIN7.  I was part of the BB ( bulletin board) sharing, in the early years, and belonged to a Kaypro Users group in Anchorage, Alaska.  Got on the Internet in Compuserve years, loved Netscape and continued with Mozilla.  At this age, I admit, I feel quite over run with the technology.  Yet, I am so grateful for my past experiences with the transition, and count my blessings that I am able to still partake of what I love via the Internet.  Virus security gives me that assurance.
