Last Customer Reviews: Malwarebytes vs Webroot

Miles
Took 3 hours and didn't even get halfway through. Had to disable it with task manager and now it's not doing anything. Can't rate 0 stars so 1 will have to do.

I noticed this - I have full powered SSD WinX, good gfx card, fast PC, lots of ram (64gb).... But when Malwarebytes is started - system is slown down for maybe 30-40% (!). When I right-click on icon bottom right and DISABLE IT - immediately system speeds up to nearly normal. Just one more thing - disabling iCloudPhotos app (for iPhone) - also takes too much HD and CPU...

When Norton failed to protect me from a nasty virus that virtually wrecked my PC, It was suggested that Malwarebytes was capable of fixing the problem. So I downloaded the free version, and by the time it was finished it had found and quarantined multiple viruses, and my PC ran great! Now I run free MSE , good for basic coverage, and Malwarebytes Premium for the nasty new stuff always showing up. it has never let me down, even on a computer that is connecting to websites and using servers world wide. Plus it doesn't use excessive HD space, my machine runs top speed all the time even when scanning, 40 bucks a year for premium is well worth it, but I recommend you use it with MicroSoft Essentials.

Webroot customer service is rubbish. They have a phone line which leave you perpetually on hold. They also run a pure scam in terms of renewals. First element of the scam is to set up as automatic renewal and then charge excess fees for second and subsequent years. The other part of the scam is to have URGENT ALERTS notifying that the subscription expires soon and urging immediate payment. Those expiry notices are more than two months before expiry. But when they get payment they 'renew' the subscription for 365 days from that date, effectively then charging for one year subscription but only providing 10 months. I know these scams are also perpetrated by other internet businesses, but that is no excuse. Webroot demonstrate that they have no customer service and no ethics and people should avoid scam businesses of this type.

We're really sorry to know that you had such a bad experience with Webroot. Unfortunately, we can't test the payment options or the recurring payment conditions. However, we strongly advice to check out other reviews of the products with really immaculate reputation. For instance, Norton Antivirus or Total AV Best regards, BestAntivirusPro.org team
