Conclusion:
Quote:
Pretty fast detection rate and heuristic detection, prevented users from installing rogue software. It's recommended for those who need antivirus protection yet it's free. Although the downside for the free version that it doesn't have web scanning, so probably users will be exposed to some web exploit sites. Also, users might get annoyed by the nag screen that asks you to buy paid version, and also sometime the update server is unavailable.
