    "does it job but is missing some things"

    March 2, 2006  |   By davaal

    Pros

    i love the firefox extention - clamglue - that works with it. it found viruses on a HDD i've had for YEARS and run atleast 15 different types of scans on.

    Cons

    it doesnt give you a lot of information. i could never tell if it had run a scan or not. i looked into the log and could see that it'd found a virus - but then it didnt tell me what it did with it. so i checked my preferences where i chose to have virus deleted immediately - so i assume they were deleted. they need some sort of interface that reassures us that something was done.

    the scans take a looooong time. a scan that i scheduled at 430am was still choking my CPU at 6am when i got up. thats unacceptable - it was only a 20gb HD.
