Conclusion:
Quote:
Fast detection rate, can block drive-by downloads so user won't accidentally download the wrong/malware files, also able to block web exploit websites as well. User can register for the free key via their website, slightly higher memory usage due to it's web scanner, hopefully it will be improved on their next version [still in beta atm]. The user interface might not be that fancy, and might annoys some users, but they can replace it with custom skin, next version should have better skin than this one. Recommended antivirus software for most of the users that wanted free and yet better protection, if can put aside the memory usage for the webscanner feature.
