    "Don't believe the negative reviews!"

    July 27, 2010  |   By hobbiest

    Pros

    Fast and very effective. Doesn't slow PC down, is just what I wanted. I hate using malware and virus programs because of the lag time but since getting prevx and eset my computer runs just like a fresh install.

    Cons

    The people who are slamming it I would take with a grain of salt. I find daily people without knowledge the worst and the quickest to blame issues on others or things when it is truly their lack of understanding that has created their preception.

    Summary

    FAST It found a root .sys virus and fixed it when no others could. It was a browser hijacker that directed me to add sites when clicking on google search findings. I tried everything before this program. Logging in safe mode and running Rkill, malwarebytes, Super Anti-Spyware, ATF, Remove Fake Antivirus & Norman Malware Cleaner. These found many issues but that one hijacker they couldn't get rid of but Prevx did.
