GOOD BUT NOT REAL TIME STAND ALONE DOMMAGE
(First, this does not apply to user opinions here)
While I do think this is an excellent secondary tool to use when trying to rid yourself from malware or rootkits and such, I do have an issue with all the hype this is getting (and I use this).
1. Many reviews on the internet state how this finds things others don't. It can, however many are false positives, it picks up what looks like a threat but may not be. It still picks up networking tools like SniffPass, it stated it was a trojan, it's not and to many basic users,they wouldn't know the difference.
2. I've put this up against others mentioned and it did no better (in real life scenarios)at ridding of infections than some popular others but no worse either. I found this to have it's own grade of removal just as others do.
3. Scan times can be horrendous. I've seen slow systems go for almost two days.
I've noticed many others getting a cut down but in my opinion and from constant use, I think yes, it's a great tool in ADDITION to others but it has never shown me it's that much better than others either.There are many scenarios where CureIT won't find things and others do instead. Most often you get reviews from those who had one bad infection, I remove numerous infections a day, including rootkits. (I suggest a reinstall in most cases now after data recovery) but onward...
No doubt a great tool to fight the bad guys but it's not perfect, still a must have though, fills in where others leave off and vice versa.
I went to a site that I should have known better and picked up a baaaad virus. Windows IE would not start and it messed with my settings on my audio card (couldn't play mp3's or listen to videos on the net). Tried running other programs, none of theme found anything that was causing my problems. I have been at this for almost a week trying to find a fix. I ran Dr.Web CureIt on my computer, it found 2 backdoors, first one it eradicated and the second one it ask me to do a restart (after scanning was complete) to remove it. After the restart, I opened up one of my mp3's and it played. Checked my settings for my volume control and everything was back to normal. So, I checked to see if Windows IE was working and sure enough it was back up and running! Thank You!, Thank You!, Thank You! goes out to the developer!! Great program I will never be without again. And, to think this was the free program, I will be purchasing the full version for sure!
I don't normally do reviews, but, this program is definitely worth the time to write about.
