Versions:

Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus 2014 - SecureAnywhere Antivirus is the entry level product. It comes with antivirus which updates itself and prevents malicious scripts from changing your settings without warning. It also blocks phishing attacks.

Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Plus 2014 - Webroot Internet Security Plus has the same features as the SecureAnywhere Antivirus version but it also includes some upgrades such as password management and protection for mobile devices. If you need a mobile tablet protected then this is your choice.

Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete 2014 - SecureAnywhere Complete includes all the previous features but it also backs up your system onto Webroot servers in case something goes drastically wrong. It also has a file shredder to prevent files from being recovered after deleting.
Strengths:

McAfee comes loaded with features in all versions that other competitors require upgrades for or do not include at all. These include features like the digital data shredder (which permanently deletes files so they cannot be recovered), a firewall, a PC tuneup and a USB and removable drive scan.
The wireless network protection is an interesting option which is often overlooked by most antivirus competitors.
Active Protection technology provides immediate protection against malicious threats to your PC. A new threat can be analyzed and blocked in a split second rather than waiting hours for traditional techniques.
Strengths:

SPEED. Webroot completes most scans in under two minutes. It's ranked the number #1 ranked antivirus for speed and performance out of 21 competitors according to an independent test study at AV Comparatives.
Webroot does not conflict with other antivirus programs so you can add it on top for additional security if you appreciate the features of another antivirus and do not want to get rid of the alternative.
Works on both Windows PC, Apple Mac, and if you have at least the Internet Security version it will protect your tablet and mobile devices as well.
