Scan Locations: Scans Wherever & It's Lightning Fast
On installation, Webroot scans your system to see if it detects any threats. It looks at rootkits, the Master Boot Record, archived files, and potentially unwanted applications. In our installation, that scan took less than two minutes. That same scan will then happen automatically each day at approximately the same time you installed the software.
Types of Malware: You’re Covered on All Sides
Computer security is serious business, and Webroot takes that challenge very seriously. The company studies trends in malware and releases a report each year to share its findings. Those findings also inform how the company continues to improve the Webroot products.
Users benefit from this awareness in enhanced protection from viruses, malware, Trojans, rootkits, polymorphic threats, cryptojacking, ransomware attacks, and even malicious IP addresses and phishing. Even the lowest tier Webroot antivirus (Webroot Antivirus) protects from these threats. Increasing your subscription to one of the higher tiers (Internet Security Plus or Internet Security Complete) add only incremental improvements such as mobile device support, a password manager, or secure online storage.
