Excellent against zero-day malware Plenty of settings to play with.
No time remaining or download bar on how long for definition updates Not marketed enough
Auslogics Antivirus uses Bitdefender's engine for virus definitions which makes this AV, in my opinion, one of the best. It even tells you if you haven't updated your Windows updates and other things.
Has plenty of settings to play with which can be overwhelming for some. I tested this program the way it came. No setting changes. Stopped everything I threw at it with no problems. From newly infected websites to Ransomware. Even the Deep Scan (most thorough scanner)scanned my PC in just 65 min.
In my opinion, this AV SHOULD be considered as one of the best paid AVs in the market. Too bad that it isn't well known as Norton, Vipre or even the free AVs out there... It's just that good!!
This antivirus scored very high on the Virus Bulletin charts when they tested dozens of different AV programs. It does not slow down my older computer, seems to be light on resources. It does not conflict with the free version of MBAM, which I run weekly.
The way the download worked seemed unusual to me and confused me a little at first - I downloaded the installer first and then launched it to get the program, but it was all worth it in the end.
It scored even higher than some big names in detection rates in VB tests. I was intrigued and, since I use other software from this company, I felt I needed to give the AV a try. I found it perfect for my older computer - doesn't slow it down like some other AV's did and I feel well protected knowing that it got such high marks in expert tests.
Sounds effective to those on this thread; but read what I posted in the Bottom-line summary.
I watched a vid where it failed.
I watched this video on Youtube and am a little hesitant. This vid is the 2010 version. I suppose that they have made some sugnificant changes. In this video it failed though. I run Vipre Antivirus Home Premium. I very pleased with it; but I am always looking for better programs if they are out there. I guess what I am saying is that someone on here may have some convincing to do to sell to this individual!
