    "Works alright for a free product"

    September 23, 2012  |   By j300ny


    1. FREE
    2. Fairly easy to use for scanning
    3. Whatever else the editor included in the description that is good
    4. Can set how many days to remind you the database it outdated and you have to update


    1. Has to always ask your permission to open...gets kind of annoying over time
    2. Not really user-friendly, but manageable
    3. Does it really work? You might have to have another program to help "pick up" anything possibly undetected


    So far, it seems good. I used it on my parent's computer and it seems to always find those malicious items. However, on my laptop, it does not seem to ever find anything (maybe because I am careful?)....only three times since I had it, which was a long time but I don't remember how long.

    For the whole does it really work thing in the con section...really, I don't know because, as stated above, it never finds anything on my computer.
