"For the hard-core security enthusiast..."

September 28, 2006  |  By soldierofmisfortune

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Not for the faint at heart, but try the Free edition, by all means... This software keeps an iron grip on computer security, anything critical that happens, has to ask this software for permission, and depending on the settings of the program, the user, otherwise, no go... if all else fails, this mightprotect you from the nasty end of having to start from scratch...

Cons

A little resource heavy, and renewal is confusing, but that does not impair its value...

Excellent as the 3rd program to your dish of security suites. Can recognise intrusions befer the likes of Norton or McAfee suites at times.

Bit difficult to navigate, but once used to system, works brilliant.

"Great Programme"

August 02, 2006  |  By chasenz

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Got rid of a couple of problems I had including intcodec which other more well known programmes either did not detect, or could not remove. Since installing it, it has given me a heads up on a number of gremlins who have tried to infiltrate my system and have automatically moved it to a holding cell.

"If you value pc security then this software is a MUST"

June 19, 2006  |  By tonyjover

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Far more advanced than a simple virus checker, Prevx actually analyses what's going on with your pc and blocks suspicious behaviour automatically. It's then down to you to let Prevx know whether the blocked activity is safe (intended) or unsafe (virus). It'll catch viruses days before the big boys even know that virus exists (in fact, Prevx makes part of its money by selling new virus information to the likes of McAfee, Symantec, AVG etc). I have this software on every one of my internet connected pcs and wouldn't be without it.

Cons

If you can't be bothered to read instructions and/or it's too much trouble for you to think about why Prevx has just opened a popup then it's not for you. This software is for SERIOUS users only.

"Useless product"

October 30, 2005  |  By jon_shmo

 |  Version: Not Found

Cons

It was not able to provide information about any of the applications I was using. It treats MS Office apps the same way it treats the latest malware.

It also fails to detect very common malware.

"Looks helpful but clogs computer. Interface sucks. I don't recommend."

October 09, 2005  |  By maple3s

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

blocks stuff I was looking for long time, like buffer overruns... etc. Altough, I have no idea whether this program really stops this crap effectively. But I trust it blindly.

Cons

Clogged explorer, browsers (all). While it works fine in the background, once I started to browse pages, the browser (any) started to show high CPU usage (above 80%) and I coudn't browse internet. After I uninstalled Prevx all went back to normal. All I can say is I don't blame your product, but it needs some improvement. I suspect it doesn't work with other software, like NOD32, ZoneAlarm, Process Guard... Although, those programs seem to be all right and timid. Besides - Prevx program interface really sucks! It looks like an amateur hacking program. I don't recommend installing this till they improve it.
