"pup trojan keylogger spy code and all sorts yuk"

December 18, 2012  |  By the_fork

 |  Version: Determination MX 1.1

Pros

fast to download, but, aren't they all when there is a bug inside?

Cons

malwarebytes flagged this as a very naughty little bit of kit. my advice is proceed with caution. it could be that it needs to log certain actions in the windows environment, but no other anti virus scanners have to do this, so why this one?. so i did not install although i may return to it at some future point just for some fun. interestingly, Kaspersky did not flag this when downloading, so it may be safe, but i trust malwarebytes 101% of the time and rely heavily on its results, which were negative for this one. leave this alone if you do not have a good antivirus scanner to frisk it down before install.

Summary

no brainer, i would give it zero stars if that option was available. if you do choose to proceed, get malwarebytes first and scan it, look at the results? post on here please, i would be intersted if you get the same outcome as me

Updated on Dec 18, 2012

"This program is a TROGAN"

October 14, 2011  |  By spenner60

 |  Version: Determination MX 1.1

Pros

None at all did not get a chance to use it.

Cons

Went to start the program when Ad-Aware live stoped it as Trogen
Win32.Moniter.SuperSpy,so weather Ad-Aware is wrong or not i unistalled it well Ad-Aware did when did a scan to make sure.

Summary

So its up to you if you want to download may be cnet can confirm if it is a TROGEN or not.

""Finds" Adobe, HP Update, Secunia etc."

August 09, 2011  |  By crsecon

 |  Version: Determination MX 1.1

Pros

Finds (?) many programs/processes that COULD be malware.

Cons

Finds many programs/processes that CANNOT be malware. Asking its Database to check is no help. Many "unknowns" of wide repute.

Summary

For those that run each process in long lists through Google for fun. Get a life............

"Useful for Finding Sneaky Malware on Windows 7"

December 31, 2010  |  By mesmerx

 |  Version: Determination MX 1.1

Pros

Lists your critical system processes and shows which ones are clean, and which ones "could be" infected. Then you can make a decision based on more info provided. I think it's critical Malware/Spyware cleaner for any Windows user.

Cons

May deter those looking for push-button fix solution as there's little work involved looking at the important listed data. But then again that's what makes it powerful software because using your common sense, is way more accurate then push-button.

Summary

For 100% confidence that your Windows system is indeed clean of malware/spyware that may "secretly" steal your data... download this software and let it scan your system files in seconds. You'll then see a clear big picture of how really safe your Windows system is.

And I don't know why previous reviewer said it's infected, when my AVG anti-virus and online multi virus file scanner says it's 100% CLEAN!

"Something that does what it says it will - finally."

October 19, 2010  |  By rfrancoe

 |  Version: Determination MX 1.1

Pros

Found this cool little tool after trying out AntiEverything, their other software here on Cnet. Pretty effective tool. Does the job well.

Cons

None so far that I can see

Summary

Good for removing viruses and spyware already on your Pc. Works good like their AntiEverything program.

"Trojan.Win32GenericBT bundled with this software."

October 11, 2010  |  By 20jen10

 |  Version: Determination MX 1.1

Pros

None. Deleted before full installation.

Cons

My Rising anti-virus software picked up the trojan as soon as I unzipped the file for this software. I suspect the trojan may pass through some anti-virus software leading to a false sense of this product's "ability" to detect trojans, etc.

"I agree! Determination MX is a sleeper hit!"

August 09, 2010  |  By tumbler99

 |  Version: Determination MX 1.1

Pros

I review tons of security software, and this one is very innovative. Great to see innovation still exists, and active.

Cons

Just a few small things to be improved upon, but definitely not bad at all for a small software company to send out something like this. I have reviewed and give 5 stars to their other products as well.

GUI on Determination MX could be spruced.

Summary

No doubt about it. Proactive Patrol is very underrated, but seems they are just getting started.

I sent this to you all in a email, but if anyone from Proactive Patrol reads this, please please let someone make you a professional site! Your statement isn't coming across with your current site, maybe even discouraging people, but don't loose sight. I have tested all of your products, and they are very effective. I am impressed and wish you all the best!

Anyone else reading this, I urge you to give Determination MX a try! You can't beat their prices on the other software either for the effectiveness.
