"A backup tool, not meant for standalone application"

January 23, 2012  |  By IziNingishzidda

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Has caught quite a few bugs the big names like MBAM, Ad-Aware, AVG etc have not been able to. I consider it pretty powerful given the way it handles some bugs that bigger name tools cant get. Also if you get a virus that target disables protection software, Sophos usually survives this.

Cons

Not a standalone package, needs to be run seldomly

Summary

great for what it is, don't get caught without this in your emergency computer cure kit, it might be the solution!

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Uses a DB built using information published on the Net.

Cons

It tries to imitate other programs but fails terribly.

Summary

It relies on data it collects from the internet not a real analysis of the product.
