They don't do much browsing except for going to baseball card sites and reading their emails, so I could always just use Microsoft Security Essentials for theirs if Webroot is going to be a problem. They have Windows 7 still and use AOL
And, before anyone suggests it, we can't get DSL, cable or Fios here. Two years ago I even got a petition with over 50 signatures on it to convince them to install the DSL equipment in the access box at the end of our road, but they still didn't do it after telling me they would consider it. Stuck with dialup or Hughesnet.
Thanks in advance for the help.

I use Dial-Up internet connection of mobile telecom internet service using a modem or dongle on a laptop. It has a download and upload speed of 230 kbps of which the speed usually roams around 190 kbps on daily usage. I'm gonna soon move on to 3G connection with 1 mbps speed. Probably next month.
I've been using WSA for 2 years now. I've never experienced any slowness or sluggishness in using the internet in presence of WSA. I had a problem with sluggishness in browsing sometime ago. I found out the problem was with another software.
I can assure you you'd feel no sluggishness when online in presence of WSA. It has offline protection. So no worries.
