Webroot Spy Sweeper 5.0 Wins Best Buy Award from PC World

"PC World Best Buy delivers a winning blend of performance and features." - PC World, October 2006

Boulder, CO – October 11, 2005

Webroot Spy Sweeper, the industry's leading anti-spyware protection software created and distributed by Webroot Software Inc., has earned a Best Buy Award from PC World for the beta version of its most recent release, Spy Sweeper 5.0. This award marks the second time that Spy Sweeper has won PC world's Best Buy distinction. The award was announced after the magazine performed tests on five leading anti-spyware applications, the results of which were published online and is included in PC World’s October issue.

"The beta version of Webroot Software’s Spy Sweeper 5.0 emerged as our Best Buy. It earned the top scores in our detection and disinfection tests, and it offers protection against rootkits. It also includes conveniences such as the ability to choose between a fast system scan that takes priority over other work and a slower but less intrusive scan," said PC World in the October 2006 issue’s "Spyware Specialists" article.

Spy Sweeper 5.0 combines advanced proactive protection against the most damaging types of spyware - including system monitors, keyloggers and rootkits - with a user interface that allows consumers to easily install Spy Sweeper and then quickly "set it and forget it." Powered by a Smart Shields lineup including a behavior-based Keylogger Shield, the most advanced shield ever included in an anti-spyware program, and Phileas V - the next generation of Webroot's automated spyware research system - Spy Sweeper 5.0 offers improved behavioral-based identification and removal technologies to effectively detect and remove spyware.

"We are thrilled that PC World has yet again recognized Spy Sweeper as a ’Best Buy’ anti-spyware solution for consumers, said David Moll, CEO of Webroot. "As always, we are committed to protecting consumers from the most damaging forms of spyware, but we also understand the need to provide users with an easy-to-use interface that offers clear instruction and information that is easily digestible. We commend PC World for highlighting these attributes and for educating their readership on the dangers of the spyware plague and the best way to protect against it."

The PC World Best Buy Award is given to the product(s) and/or service(s) that stand out from others in their category. A full review of Spy Sweeper 5.0 can be found on or in the October 2006 issue of PC World, on newsstands September 12th.
