"Formerly "Ewido 4.0""
I purchased this product when it was "Ewido" and liked it very much. Depended on it for active protection and all. Supposedly after reading reviews on other forumns the newer app., AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 is better. (supposedly) I was advised that my "Ewido" license would transfer. (it did). everything O.K. so far right? Wrong! After the merger or buy out by "Grissoft" the signature database increased to more than 500,000 signatures. To big for an anti spy app. Ran a scan and it found C:/System_Volume_restorexxxxxx as a high risk. Now I know nasties can hide there but this one was my IE saved screen names and passwords. I didn't realize it at first so I let the app. delete the supposed trojan. WRONG!!!
False positive raised hell with my IE. Grown to big for an anti-spy app and can no longer be trusted period. Very disapointed with what "Grissoft" has done to my favorite anti-spy app. I can no longer in good concience recomend this app. Took me 45 min. to repair my IE. Confirmed the false pos. by running my other apps whis=ch found nothing!
