Webroot Trumpets Spyware Remover Tests

Boulder, Colorado-based Webroot is trumpeting its performance in a recent anti-spyware software test. The firm reported that its testing by VeriTest shows that its spyware cleaning tool is three times as effective as competition from Sunbelt, and twice as effective as tools from McAfee. Webroot said that its tool fully cleaned 94 percent of the test bed, versus only 53 percent for McAfee and 26 percent for Sunbelt. VeriTest is an independent test lab, which typically tests software for clients such as Webroot.
