    Hello,

    How is this anti-malware? Won this from the Castlecops Contest.
    Is its IDS effective? Is this a F/P monster? Are they fast in solving f/p and how's their support?

    It has this tool(HiJackFree) which I like.

    I have had some FPs in it. The scanning is great it finds traces of spyware that can be left over from other programs that removed it. I used it to get rid of many nasty things on a computer I am cleaning now.

    I have used it as a demand scanner, and, same as Cheater said, it found things left over at times. So I'd rate it fairly highly. Frequent updates, seems to be good support, seems to be an effective cleaner.
    Definitely worht checking less obvious results against jotti or virustotal, though, had a couple of FP's, heard about a couple of others, but then, a lot of them have these at times.

    Hi

    Same here as an on demand scanner. The odd FP but nothing major as far as I'm concerned. Updates are often quite large.

    Also won a license for this at CC and will certainly find a use for it :)

    I won it also, installed it tonight. It found some left over registry entries from a long time ago from spy subtract, nothing malicious, but it did clean it up for me....Will use as on-demand, very nice product!

    A-Squared HiJackFree is also a good app from them. Very informative.

    I would have purchased A Squared if I had the cash, as I feel it would help me finally keep a software program longer than a month. I like the IDS Detection it has. I also feel the interface is simple and complete.

    I also won a copy :D ! I also have the free version and like it. There are some FPs, and they are quick to fix them. They also have lots of updates.

    Another question, does it cover more types of malware than SUPERAntiSpyware?
    I have also won SAS from the contest and can't decide which to use.

    If you were me, what will you use?

    That's why you have to use SUPERAntiSpyware.
    Do you realize what Multi-Dimensional means ? That's more than 2D and 3D together.

    The rest you can read here :

    Wow thanks ErikAlbert,
    I will use a-squared Anti-Malware instead.

    PS: I know what "Multi-Dimensional" is.
