On a lark, I decided to try Webroot. And within 15 minutes have uninstalled it. When I could not excluding folders from scanning, I went to the Community Forum and was shocked by the lack of functionality, but more so: the reasoning that was provided.
I have many, many files and folders that trigger various security warnings. It is an incredibly irritating and time-consuming endeavor having to pull from quarantine files that have been erroneously tagged as threats.
It is such poor product development to offer the option in the business edition but in no other. Is the logic that this alone will warrant upselling? If so then this is perhaps the stupidest reasoning ever since excluding folders is found in virtually all antivirus applications.
