Webroot Spy Sweeper 4.5, the industry's leading anti-spyware protection software created by Webroot Software, Inc., has been honored by PC World with a 2006 World Class Award – one of The 100 Best Products of the Year. The award will be revealed in the July 2006 issue of PC World.

"Products that win PC World’s World Class Awards set the standard for excellence in the IT and consumer electronics industries," stated Harry McCracken, editor in chief of PC World. "From notebook computers and security software to music players and Web sites, the editors reward the most outstanding performers in this annual awards program. Congratulations to Spy Sweeper."

Spy Sweeper 4.5 combines Comprehensive Removal Technology (CRT) with the superior blocking power of behavior-based Smart Shields. CRT uses adaptive recognition processes and proactive spyware research to completely eradicate the most debilitating types of spyware from a PC in a single sweep and restore the machine to a stable, pre-infection state. CRT effectively removes some of the most persistent and powerful spyware programs today, including Commonname, LOP, SurfSidekick, VX2/Abetterinternet/Aurora, and Elite Keylogger.

Celebrating its 24th year, the respected World Class Awards honor products that meld practical features with innovation and reflect the rapidly changing technology marketplace. To select the winners, PC World’s editors examined hundreds of products, including those that have appeared in the magazine over the past 12 months.
