  5. I tried it and it gave me all kinds of false positives. It told me I had about a dozen trojans and other problems. No other anti-malware software has revealed any problems on my system, so I know they're False Positives. One was JAP, I think.

    I would say it needs some work. But it does look very promising! After the bugs are worked out i'll bet it will be a really good and very useful program to have.

    I use Pest Patrol, SpySweeper, Spybot, Ad-aware, NAV 2005, Prevx, WinPatrol, MS anti-spyware, A2 and quite a few other anti-malware programs, with latest sigs..... No problems detected using these programs on Win XP sp2, so I'm almost positive they're FPs.

    I would refer anybody to THIS THREAD as the advice still holds good
    None of the automatic Analysers are particularly effective at the moment and are unlikely to be with the new style of malware taht is around now

    This particular analyser is somewhat different to the standard HJT analysers but I have tried it and it is still somewhat lacking even though it is an improvement over other analysers

    Warning: This tool is only suitable for advanced users as it's all too easy to totally wreck your system with it as it is with HJT or DiamondCS version or any of the other system analysis tools
