    Hello.

    Well, I am not using it at the moment, but recently I participated in a thread discussion which involved Prevx. Since I didn't know anything about it at that time, I was intrigued to investigate it. I liked the concept of heuristics HIPS. So, I am for now only very interested. :)

    I used the free version and recently received a license as a gift. I must say it runs smooth and it's two processes only use around 12MB of memory. I also like the GUI, and it's different features. I'm not sure why it didn't do well awhile back in the tests done by Gizmo, but I believe it has improved since then and I actually like it better than Cyberhawk, which did well in that test

    I like it too, because it doesn't ask annoying questions, which I hestitate to answer with yes or no.

    I really like its concept. I´m waiting for a build with lower resource usage.

    Hi, folks: I am not a free user. I was very skeptical and often critical about its concept and approach initially. But now I am a firm believer. My three-month lic shall expire in 2 weeks, I will definitely renew it for a whole year. A top-rated program does not come to us too often and when I see it I do keep it at all costs. :) I hope you too. ;)

    The resource usage is not really high, but it´s higher than most software I use. It is more evident when Prevx does a lookup in the online database. But I really like the software and I want to use it in a upcoming build (dedicated Audio-CD ripping machine) alongside PG Free and Kerio 2.1.5

    Right away ;)
    That means after you registered.
    Otherwise it won't ticking for the next 100 years or so.

    But you can run the free version untill you get infected +32 days, than you have to register for the full version.

    so you buy the license and from that day it starts ticking?
    or do you have to install the products put in license code and press actovate then it starts ticking?

    It used to be that it would start counting as soon as the license key was created, but it has since been changed so that it does not start counting down until you actually put in the license code and click Activate. So if you have a current subscription that ends soon, you can wait until that one ends before activating the new one :)
