Hi buteman Just in from the daily grind so apologies for the delayed response. I would assume the low download figure is due to the fact that it is brand new. I have tried it and for some odd reason it thought that my ram boost proggy was "suspicous" but other than that it seem to run very smoothly. As I said before installation is not required - it will run straight off the .exe.
Hi skidzy How inadequate do I feel now? - with my old xp machine with Celeron D CPU!!! Joking apart my scan took 70 seconds and still insists that my TweakRam prog is suspicious (only suspicious - not bad) which - as it has been run through every other security prog on the system and comes up clean - needs further investigation in Prevx's database as to how they categorise the threat level. As you so rightly say - another tool in the box-no more no less.
Good afternoon cocteau48, I have just installed it, updated and run it.Nothing suspicious was found, so I ran my Ad Aware Pro and it found 4 tracking cookies. I used to use the old "Real Time Prevx", which I thought was good but eventually it wouldn't run unless I paid for it. However I can't say that I am particularly impressed by this performance. Still it was worth a look.
This could be intersting when i get back to the Vista machine with a quick cpu and plenty of ram...will try it.
Im currently building a test machine that will have various programs installed,some good and some not so good...will be interested if i knowingly load something containing Malware/Spyware and see if this scanner actually picks it up.
However Prevx is a good company and i would expect a decent program from them.
