    "RAV may be the av you've been looking for"

    July 29, 2011   |   By Canker

    Version: Rising Antivirus 2011 23.00

    Pros

    Resource-light, very user friendly, install n' go simplicity, cloud technology

    Cons

    GUI is for kids, animated lion a la Clippit in MS Office

    Summary

    RAV11 is the sweetest deal I've found yet for a Windows compatible av - and I've tried many! RAV11 is an av that uses *cloud based* technology. To be truthful, I don't know much about *cloud based* tech other than it becomes more effective with more users (think of it as a very large network of users). RAV already enjoys a huge user base in China from where the prog's developer is headquartered in Beijing. With time I think RAV will quickly expand its popularity in other countries thereby making it an even more effective av.
    Of particulary note is the effectiveness of its av scanning engine. I hadn't expected much from RAV's scanning (You get what ya pay for, right?). But to my shock it uncovered a trojan on my WinXP system that another (expensive) av hadn't uprooted. RAV quarantined the trojan and I haven't had a single issue - or any malware - with this av since I installed it several months ago. With its smooth updates, simple interface, and small footprint, RAV11 is worth a serious look when considering you next av.
    If you have any problems with linking to the full program from C/NET, go directly to RAV at http://www.rising.com.cn and download. There you can get live customer support if you choose as well. Previous, some posters were unfairly berating this prog simply b/c they were too thickheaded to head for the developer's site; CNET was/is linking up for an non-functional server app.
    Though a relative unkown at present, RAV may be the av you've been looking for.

    "Didn't work at all."

    July 25, 2010   |   By twodkb1

    Version: Rising Antivirus 2010 22.03

    Pros

    I can't think of anything.

    Cons

    I clicked on "Start", and it it didn't do anything. No scanning, nothing. I clicked on other features to see if there was something else I was supposed to do, but no, there wasn't. The program didn't run, didn't do what it's supposed to.

    Summary

    Not sure if it just doesn't work on XP or doesn't work at all, but this anti-virus program just didn't do anything at all. Guess I'm going back to the memory-hogging AVG or buggy Avira or Avast. Not happy about it, but there's no choice.

    "Best free Antivirus."

    July 20, 2010   |   By Quantum6

    Version: Rising Antivirus 2010 22.03

    Pros

    Found Trojans other well known Antivirus programs missed. I will be keeping this one, Does not slow firefox when browsing. This should be up there with AVG and Avast and I have used them in the past, never again now I have found this gem.

    Cons

    Update can take a while but this is a minor complaint to how well this scans.

    Summary

    You wont go wrong with this download it now.

    "Nice Logo, Poor Product and Product Support"

    January 30, 2010   |   By islandcop

    Version: Rising Antivirus 2009 21.55.12

    Pros

    Looks nice. Cheaper than most, that is what suckered me in.

    Cons

    Has many problems with Windows 7. I spend more time tweeking the program than I do anything else.

    Summary

    I have had free virus protection that works smoother than this product. Stick with a state side company for a better product and support. I guess I got what I paid for.
