Re: Webroot SecureAnywhere scanning PC - suspiciously fast....
said by clocks11:If a full scan misses something in the name of speed, then, yeah, kinda looking like snake oil.
First WSA is not snake oil. Dumb comment by someone that is uninformed.
The new Webroot is based off of Prevx. It's scan checks processes running in memory, and a few critical areas. Scans that take about a minute are normal, similar to Hitman Pro.
If you were to try to run the virus file, more likely than not, WSA would scan it on execution and quarantine it. If you want to check, load up a virtual machine and try it.
