    no clue if i was you i down load tds 30 day and im not sure but i think you can get the updates manuely

    so if it finds a trojan you can go to nortion free tool section and get a tool to remove specific trojans

    will for now id go with the old ants verstion at the free tool section at but do not hit update other wise you turn it in to german or worst cause its been no longher suported also gladiator and trojan check with the enghlish file droped in to its main folder when you install it

    that ought to give you some protection couldnt hurt to get gladiator to

    Hi Bethrezen,

    ANTS is in Beta - and Gladiator in Alpha. IMHO no one is able to predict when both apps will be finished/released as Final releases.

    Far too early to tell. As soon as Final releases are available, one is able to compare.

    I would suspect that Ants will be ready first.

    Only I haven't seen Andreas over at the beta testing board for a while, I just hope he is ok. :)

    I am ok but there are a few "high priority" jobs i have to do first.

    At the moment you cannot compare ANTS with any other anti trojan tool, cause its still a test version.

    If it is ready it is a mix of BOClean and TDS - and i hope its a good mix ;o). Speed and simplicity of BOClean and the "power" of TDS.

    Cause ANTS has a full documented PlugIn interface (Guard and OnDemand) every one can develope his own new features. Of course you can prohibit unknown plugins ;o).

    I finished 7 plugins at the moment.

    1. the scanning module is ready.
    2. autostart viewer is ready.
    3. netstat viewer is ready.
    4. quarantine module is ready.
    5. guard scanning module is ready.
    6. guard ids module is ready.
    7. guard task planing module is ready.

    If anyone is interested in the ANTS "sdk" or has ideas for new modules or simply wants more information just post :eek:).

    Hm some comments from me...
    First, Gladiator is not more "only" a trojan scanner.
    GAV (Gladiator AntiVirus) is already be able to detect more as 5000 viruses and sub-types.
    I take a "special" eye on backdoor / trojan detection, but like Paul said: It stills alpha so far. I am updating nearly each day and i did test the first GAV "on-access-scanner" prototype.
    That means a Realtime Monitor.
    I'm driver developer so this should not be a big problem for me.
    I think at the end of this week i have my generic unpack engine for the most common runtime-packers ready. This will be a big improve.
    And you will never have a "best" AV or AT Software.

    You can read here more about this: (this is my mind):

    Best regards,
