"I've used this for a few years now; always been great!"

July 30, 2011  |  By gayla-teq

 |  Version: DriveSentry Desktop 3.4.0.20

Pros

Easy to use - Customer support is quite reliable - Yearly fees for the Deluxe version are very reasonable - I've had great success with this program. I usually have a number of bids on the go and it's easy to keep track and see everything at once.

Cons

Only one downfall is not being able to snipe if my computer is turned off. I do wish that could be solved.

Summary

Overall I don't have any reason to change from this program. I've had thousands of sucessful bids and saved a bundle over the years too.

"Very lite and effective."

July 09, 2009  |  By TrailerparkPirate

 |  Version: DriveSentry 3.3.0.4

Pros

Just set it up and do one scan and that's it?
Ive tested it against some nasty stuff and it blocked every one!
No false positives so far?
It's nice to see a product actually do what's advertised for a change!

Cons

Allot of popups at the beginning but it stops after you run all your programs. After that you don,t even know it's there.
Won't let me run some of my trojan infested porn )~8

Summary

Great protection for a clean box!
As for cleaning up a box after it,s infected? Couldn't tell ya?
I stick to the tryed and trusted to do this!
M-Bam & Superantispyware,Dr Webs Cure it! and HijackThis?
Try it you can't go wrong it's free ya cheap basturds! (~8 Just a joke 8~)

"FANTASTIC!!!!!"

July 02, 2009  |  By AshleyCartier10

 |  Version: DriveSentry 3.3.0.4

Pros

FREE! Real-Time Protection. Fast. Light!

Cons

On-Demand scan is painfully slow. Around 4 hours.

Summary

This program essentially replaces Comodo BOClean as the BEST Free Real-Time Antimalware available. BOClean is no longer available or supported as a standalone AM w/ Real-Time monitoring. This is NextGen Cloud Based Tri-Security. The perfect compliment to your AV. Program is only 2.6 MB. Small. Light. Accurate. Easy to understand. One strange thing. Full scan takes over 4 hours. Quick scan takes 11 minutes!! Odd. Anyway, most good AV will stop about 92% of infections. With Drive Sentry running in the background, the other 8% don't have a chance. You are essentially 100% protected. A good feeling. Wonderful product.
If they would just add Buffer Overflow Protection to the program, it would be perfect.
