That's why I'm very satisfied with my Dr.Web Security Space suite and SpyShelter Premium anti-keylogger, and do not plan on swapping them anytime soon!

I have a 3 year license to Dr. Web I don't use and have no use for.

I love the product but the false positives got annoying. But the real problem is, Dr. Web can't handle internet connections over 450Mbps. It totally throttles anything over 450Mbps. Even without the firewall installed it caps out my internet at 450Mbps. This is a huge problem for me because I am on a 1000Mbps connection. Unfortunately their support seems to lack in English so I was never able to work through this with them. I tested this on multiple machines, multiple settings/configurations of Dr. Web and it still throttled so it had to go away and I had to go back to Trend.

their support is really slow, even in responding to submitted files.

I wouldn't be surprised if this thread gets locked soon.

But in case it doesn't, guys remember that this thread is about Webroot's update issue. It might be for the best to take other conversations to either your own profile or PM

I'm sure Azure Phoenix he's heard it all before.
