Decent4 starsby gimpguy Sep 08, 2012 (Read all my 1159 reviews)
This is definitely a scanner with many options. The interface may scare some users to the point of not liking it but it gives you a choice on what to scan, very in depth. I don't know how it actually detected since I don't have anything on this pc to catch, will have to try it on something infected later on. So far, seems fast, easy to use basic scan, great options. showReview details
More work needed3 starsby SilverFox Mar 22, 2008 (Read all my 7 reviews)
Thanks to EMCO for adding their product to the arsenal against malware. I found it scans the registry quickly, less so the file system. The interface seems clunky and confusing, with windows opening on windows. More work here would give the product a more professional appearance. There are some cryptic options, for example under 'Tools', there is a menu option: 'Total Removal Info in Database'. Presumably that refers to the definition database? Not sure why one would wish to "totally remove" that info, unless it was, say, corrupted? This is not an option I have seen on any similar program, and not sure what its purpose would be. The scanning progress notifier needs more work to show just what it is scanning at any given time. Needs a notifier to indicate when it has finished scanning also. showReview details
False finder3 starsby pantherman Feb 01, 2008 (Read all my 14 reviews)
Plus side, Fast. Minus side, Kept giving false positives. In one month of use never updated once. I checked for updates each day. showReview details
