Runs really well for the most part.Only 1 tiny issue here,and it's not much of an issue as i do not perform the function that often.I tried a clean install to see if it changed anything,but it did not.
issue:right click a file or folder and scan with Webroot does not work.

I did contact support about my small,rather non-issue.I don't really use the functionon a consistent basis,but someone else on win8proX64 might.Will be sure to pass along whatever i learn.

No that's good as I consider Win 8 still a very new OS and there will be more problems with it and it will be nice to get them fixed and also Microsoft and there Monthly Windows Updates could cause more conflicts! ;)
