"Very poor in detection rates for an AV"
None at the moment
Poor scanning. Does not cleanly uninstall. Remnants remain in registry keys which you have to manually remove. Not good if you're a novice PC user.
Would not recommend this product for an AV for your computer. For a free AV I'd recommend Avast, AVG and Kingsoft AV 2012. Paid product would be Kaspersky, Avast, AVG. Have tested this program on ten computers. I'm an IT professional and test AV software.Avast has fixed that issue. I also would recommend Avira and AVG. Avast 7 is working beautifully for me, not only on my home PC, but, also on ten computers which I use to test AV software.
