    Free year antivirus

    What do you guys think of this. Etrust was one of the very few AV's listed at http://www.icsalabs.com/html/communi...products.shtml - that was certified for both cleaning as well as detecting. Is this just another gimmick?

    I've decided to test it. It comes as a suite but I decided to just install the AV. Here's a screenshot - simple, clean interface - seems low in system resource usage as well. I'm performing a full system scan to see how long it takes.



    *edit

    Started scanning: 4:45:22 PM, 5/23/2004
    Finished scanning: 5:22:58 PM, 5/23/2004
    No file viruses detected.

    CA's Etrust is good... just a complete rip off copy of VET (used at home and work) It works flawlessly and very resourceful. And 1 year updates is good

    In processes it says, "vet32.exe" Does this company make Vet? Or as you say, it's a rip off - but so apparent as to use the same exe name?

    *edit - I ran google and found Vet AV is made by CA.

    No wonder you got so many problems with your PC Lynch, this is like the 3rd anti-virus you've installed/uninstalled.

    Already?! How many days did it last? If you keep uninstalling AVs, you should get RegCleaner, and make sure the AV is completely removed, Im sure your Registry is scrambled.!

    I heard it wasn't that great from people I know. They complained about constant lock ups and it missed a few normal viruses. I don't know though since I've never used it myself.
