    "Watch out with the choice of language!"

    February 26, 2010  |   By giessen

    Pros

    Seems to work efficiently to find threats (though it's impossible to tell if you don't have data from objective comparative tests done by experts).

    Cons

    Gave 15 false-positives because I used it in English language on a non-English copy of Windows. But it doesn't warn about this issue.

    Summary

    I prefer English-language versions of programs over the often badly-worded translations. But apparently the interface language of IObit Security 360 also determines some details of the threat database. Some of Windows' dll files are apparently language-specific, and they were flagged as spyware. When I scanned in the Windows language, the system was clean. I think the program should make clear that the selected language doesn't just apply to the user interface but also to the malware database!

    Other than that, I like the functionality and the sparing use of resources. A full scan of my big Windows computer took about 2.5 hours, which is long, but I guess it can be done in the background while you are working. A quick scan remains within 15 minutes.
