    "this program will melt your hardrive."

    August 12, 2013  |   By ThatGuy90

    Pros

    literally.. it's that bad..

    Cons

    slow. heavy, bad detection rates, misses stuff that MSE finds..

    Summary

    this program needs huge improvements.. it takes forever to scan but that's not the biggest problem, the problem is.. MSE does a better job and detecting malware.

    Seriously? It scans very quickly on my computer and takes almost no resources to do so. I don't even realize it is running half of the time until I get the pop-up saying that no viruses were found. I also get a great detection rate (I have ran other antivirus programs to ensure nothing was being missed).

    Thatguy has to be a paid troll. Every Cnet forum update he's here spreading the same manure.
