It doesn't say anything about the addition of System Optimizer? And agree with David the packaging looks awesome!

Yes.. that is one of the reasons I asked for it to be added to the product comparisan page on a different thread this morning.  It would really make the features stand out better I think.

And from Amazon it says this?
 
  • Optimize Your Gaming System. Analyzes devices and operating systems to detect system issues for optimal performance, wipes away all traces of online activity and makes deleted files unrecoverable.
Which would make me think that it has System Analyzer also?
 
And from Newegg?

small request pleae,
 
can you add Pale Moon to the cleaning options. It is a very popular Firefox based browser that uses the same code but optimized for maximum speed and use of today's new hardware.
 
The location of the profile is storedin:
 
C:UsersMaXimusAppDataLocalMoonchild ProductionsPale MoonProfiles
 
and
 
C:UsersMaXimusAppDataRoamingMoonchild ProductionsPale MoonProfiles
 
This browser is fully compatible with Firefox's addons 100% but gives you the speed of Google Chrome with the interface of firefox + its amazing addons

I'm actually not sure what the system analyzer is or where in the UI to find it so I can't answer that one :8

Thanks Daniel :D

Right now I am using someone else's computer (I am in the process of setting up a triple boot on my own computer so it's kind of unusable... :P) so I can't look just yet to see if it has the analyzer in it, but I will as soon as my computer is ready.

Hi guys,

I just checked and no, it doesn't have the system analyzer, but it does have the optimizer and file shredder.

Thanks Shran that is what I thought but the description from Amazon & Newegg was confusing.

This is great! I use the optimizer more often then WSA itself. I dont get infected often, but who likes temps? As a PC gamer I would never run a real time protection antivirus, I like my CPU cycles too much. But webroot is light enough that its a product I use regularly. 
 
I think if we were to sponsor an e-sports event, we could make a huge splash with the younger tech savvy generation... Word will spread!

We are doing just that! 
 
I've been building a relationship with Denver Pro Gaming and this is just the beginning. Come to one of the tournaments we are sponsoring next month. :D

Ahh.Gaming tournaments.How i miss them.My reflexes aren't what they once were back in the early days of Madden,Street Fighter,King of Fighters,etc.I have found pc gaming suits me perfectly,and pc gaming with Webroot has been a godsend.There is no shortage of online gamers who complain about lag on a regular basis.Sponsoring tournaments is a perfect idea for Webroot and a home run business wise once word spreads.Wish WSA had been around when i was in my gaming prime.
It's been a while, but that almost makes me want to start playing competitively again... If anyone in the Denver area plays Starcraft or LoL, PM me if you would like a practice partner!
