    "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.

    "Should it not detect EICAR virus test file."

    September 1, 2009  |   By Fixedisk

    Version: DriveSentry Desktop 3.3.0.4

    Pros

    Sounds good as all the hype says.

    Cons

    Installed, tested with Eicar virus test file. No virus alert when eicar.com test virus was opened. Removed DS.

    Summary

    Seems to block drive from writing, but what about reading your sensitive data?

    "Very lite and effective."

    July 9, 2009  |   By TrailerparkPirate

    Version: DriveSentry Desktop 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 2, 2009  |   By AshleyCartier10

    Version: DriveSentry Desktop 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.
