Webroot Spy Sweeper 5.3 with Antivirus

Webroot Spy Sweeper 5.3 with Antivirus includes the makings of a powerful all-in-one application, but not every security tool has been implemented or enabled by default. Average users would be wise to use a name-brand standalone antivirus app with antispyware instead.
