I talked w/Webroot today and I asked what level of protection I received from them in download.  They said I have the level called "antivirus".  In my situation I have only my laptop.  We live in a rural area and don't have cell service, cable or any other things big city people take for granted.  So "I guess" this level is ok.  NOW is see a level called "internet security plus"....what is the difference between the two and taking my situation into account, which would you  rec. for me?

Have a look at this page and it will highlight the main differences between all 3 versions of WSA.  Personally, from what you say I would say that you are currently fine with the AV version.

That is not correct.
 
The Best Buy Subscription you have currently is  NOT  the equivelant of Webroot Antivirus.  The Best Buy version you have is the same as Webroot Internet Securiry Plus.

Just for background, some of those licenses for sale on Ebay are ones where people get free keycodes (for instance from visiting the Webroot office) and then sell them.  There are cases where we've caught people doing that and invalidated the keycode, so that's another reason to be careful.  If you do get scammed, you can file a claim with Ebay and possibly get your money back.  Deals from legitimate retailers like NewEgg are ok though.  You can sometimes find up to 50% discounts if you look around.

I found a retailer in Dallas that has amazing deals of Webroot software.  When mine is about to expire that is where I am going...even beat so called deals on Ebay.

Nic that certainly answers the discussion we all had the other day or about EBay and licenses. Right @shorTcircuiT ?

I would be very wary of that.... I have seen cases in which retailers are trying to resell expired licenses.

Completely agree with you David...as has oft been said here before..."if it seems too good to be true...then it is too good to be true...and steer WELL clear of it".
 
Not trying to scare you xbassman44...just be very careful.  I have learnt from bitter experience that the above is a truism.
