    "Prevx acts like a "rouge" program"

    August 8, 2009  |   By phoenixx19651

    Version: Prevx CSI 3.0.0.188

    Pros

    None! Scans quick, just to mark two of my trusted programs as malware.

    Cons

    Once installed you simply can't get rid of it.

    Summary

    Do yourself a favor and DO NOT install this program. I have successfully removed worms, dialers, viruses and trojans before, but I can NOT get rid of this program. I exhausted the Google search engine trying to find out how to rid my system of it and even geeks are struggling to give concrete answers!
    It comes without an uninstall option. Neither will this program show up in "Add/remove Programs", nor will there be an uninstall option next to it in the "All Programs" Start menu. Their website offers an uninstall tool, but it's useless, even if you run it in safe mode. Trying to remove it manually fails, it eludes deletion within every single step you are taking, making you wonder if it is a "rouge" program itself.
    Worst of all, it doesn't even show up in the startup menu at "msconfig", where you think you can at least prevent it from an automatic start on bootup. Nope! It will be nagging you on startup and also in between when you are in the middle of something, popping up with the same results over and over.
    I even deleted several registry values at placers where I found them, to NO AVAIL!
    A NIGHTMARE!

    "High Marks for Prevx"

    April 2, 2009  |   By TopDog

    Version: Prevx CSI 3.0.0.188

    Pros

    Good looking and easy to use GUI.
    Low impact on system resources.
    Excellent tech support
    Provides an essential level of protection on top of other security programs

    Cons

    Can be over zealous in detection of threats.
    Requires active internet connection to its database of threats. Actually only a con if you don't have an active connection, otherwise the feature is what helps keep the impact on system resources low.

    Summary

    For layered protection on top of an AntiVirus program this cant be beat. It has not interfered or conflicted with any other security software I have used it with. When a suspected false positive is reported its acted on very quickly by the Prevx team. I reported what I suspected was a false positive and it was corrected within two hours.
    I like this program and the company that maintains it.

    "Prevx CSI is very bad"

    March 22, 2009  |   By Jasonh09

    Version: Prevx CSI 3.0.0.188

    Pros

    Beautiful GUI. That is the only part good.

    Cons

    Not really detect malware. It taged Kaspersky's DLL as malware. It is radiculous!!!
    It it not really free. It pushes user to buy the advanced version for killing the FALSE detected malware.

    Summary

    Do not trust this tool! Do not buy this tool!

    "Prevx CSI is one very good program"

    March 19, 2009  |   By Aragorn7

    Version: Prevx CSI 3.0.0.188

    Pros

    Very low system resource utilization. Very fast scanner and good removal.

    Cons

    An occasional false positive.

    Summary

    Inspite of the lying or perhaps novice reviews, Previx CSI (prevx.exe process) only uses 1576K and that's in Vista. This is very little resource usage and why should it not? It's a scanner only.

    For those critical of payment, the Prevx web site is completely clear that the free version scans only and you have to pay for removal unless you buy it to begin with. What's wrong with that? I can't provide for my family if I don't charge for my services, can anyone else?

    As for the reviews on an earlier version of Prevx CSI that it uses false positives to get you to buy the program, these are just utter drivel.

    Now, to be sure, I have run across what I believe to have been false positves with this product, but you can submit a potential false positive to Prevx and if it is, they will correct it. They are usually quite responsive. I have also discovered false positives with all the main brand products as well. Prevx CSI may be slightly more prone to false positives, but not terribly so.

    I am a computer tech. I do not work for Prevx and I do not sell their products. I have, however, been reviewing Prevx CSI and their new Edge product for potential future use with my clients and on my own PC.

    I have high regard for thoughtful knowledgeable reviews, but the reviews I've read here thus far are in my technical opinion either dishonest or the users were novices and just being over zealous in their criticisms.

    My intent here is not to be overly harsh, but to offer a more reasonable assessment of this product.

    In my opinion, Prevx CSI is a valuable adjunct to any anti-virus product.

    "Prevx CSI is NOT good"

    February 20, 2009  |   By jeffh2000

    Version: Prevx CSI 3.0.0.188

    Pros

    see nothing useful

    Cons

    1. make system slow
    2. add auto start console.exe without asking.
    3. 95% scan result are false positive. It uses the finding to ask user to buy
    4. Crash IE browser a couple of times. The error console says so.

    Summary

    This scanner really bothers. I would buy trusted big company's product instead of this one. I even could not find out where this company is.
