SAN DIEGO, July 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For all those Comic-Con fans who are likely to spend time waiting in lines this year, Webroot hopes to make it just a bit easier by providing free and secure wireless access via roving hotspots, as well as a chance to win an Alienware laptop or a Ful Powerbag and other prizes.

Free, High-Speed Wireless
Fans just need to find the #WheresWebroot street team dressed in neon green (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbrXnJAUtRU&list=PL3CF165E8E0843CB0&index=5&feature=plpp_video), to get connected. They will provide fans with the code necessary to take advantage of the high-speed wireless capabilities while they wait in line.

Chance to Win
To be eligible to win an Alienware M11x laptop from Dell or Ful Powerbag, fans can submit entertaining photos of themselves wearing Webroot-green t-shirts (available from the #WheresWebroot team) next to celebrities, costume-clad attendees, or anything else that's cool and interesting.  The photos will be judged by Webroot, based on creativity and outrageousness (within the legal limits, of course). Photos can be submitted via email to: whereswebroot@webroot.com. Check out the contest rules at: https://www.facebook.com/Webroot/app_345244332212011.

The fan submitting the best photo will receive an Alienware M11x laptop from Dell, customized to provide the best gaming experience. The laptop, weighing less than 4.5 lbs, has almost a seven-hour battery life, features up to a 2nd Gen Intel® Core™ processors and up to 16GB DDR3 of performance memory.

Two other fans will receive a Ful Powerbag, which includes a rechargeable battery that can charge the average smartphone four times. Its USB ports fit hundreds of mobile devices, including tablets, iPods and e-readers.

Other Chances to Win
The #WheresWebroot street team will also be looking for the true fans out there who can put their knowledge to the test.  Anyone who can "beat the geek" trivia master will win movie tickets or free subscriptions to Webroot® SecureAnywhere™.

Test of Sobriety
Webroot is also offering a free "Sobriety app" that can help fans avoid posting that snarky remark or embarrassing photo to their social media page or doing something else that they might regret, when they are intoxicated.  The app tests an individual's coordination and balance through a battery of fun tests.  It can be downloaded here:
