    The fundamentalist attitude... Just like there are Muslim fundamentalists, there are Christian ones in especially America. I include the neo-cons in that. But that's my last piece on this, because otherwise it will become a political/religious thread. I though, will not make use of software made by this 37.4 group, even if this was the last piece of av software on the planet.

    Yes, this is typical of how complete diversion can occur and pedantics begin to freely flow. I can find ONE (unforgivable!) sentence mentioning God on their
    site, and look what happens!
    Their total focus is on Security Software. Their charity committment looks commendable.Give them a fair chance!

    I just downloaded this, mainly because I was bored but I like the looks of it. I ran a scan and it found some leftover entries in the registry that I guess MBAM had missed, nothing dangerous. Got a lot of features. Has anyone else tried it?

    I guess I don't understand. Why all the side comments in this thread? What do they have to do with the performance of the software. I mean are you folks just trying to increase your post count?

    There is nothing else to talk about on the subject. Frankly there is enough AV's out there to sink a ship and with the constant "NEW AV Post" It gets really old really fast. Now its to the point of who the hell cares its just become a joke.

    If you don't like what we post simply ignore it because all it seems to do is pad your post count as well as ours. :blink:

    Ok so i was using FF, but 200 MB?

    Your system is not having enough disk space. For Online Scan minimum 200 MB free disk Space is required

    Cheap price considering the features:
    http://www.thirtyseven4.com/components.html

    I'd give him a chance considering his service to the industry.
    http://www.pr.com/press-release/205113

    Rather than test it and throw one rogue at it, which it might not detect, and then label it as crud, how about someone give it an actual go?

    Why don't you do it then moron?! I would, but this machine is running so damn nice. ;) Edit - about new antiviruses, sure there have been some duds posted, but then there have been the stand-outs like twister and hitman pro.

    It certainly seems interesting, though not always in a good way.

    The dodgy grammar in the screenshot posted above ("not having enough diskspace" or whatever it said) makes it look more like a foreign rogue than a proper security suite. Their one customer testimonial also strikes me as odd - its from a business who apparently switched to using ThirtySeven4, yet all they do is compare it to Norton and not Symantec. The company in question (Richfield Financial Group) doesn't exactly have a website that fills me with confidence either!

    The other stuff on their website (mainly stuff about the company) I find objectionable personally, but can see why this would be acceptable in the bible belt of America.

    To sum up, it has some of the characteristics I teach people to look out for, in case the program they are looking at is a rogue. :)

    Slightly off topic but would you feel any better if they were scientologists instead?

    As far as I am aware there are a very few well known security and software companies connected to the scientology movement. It doesn't bother me as long as the software works because I do not judge a company or person based on their religious beliefs :)

    This av is interesting in that it uses Quick Heal's engine.
    You don't see that much.

    I see that the single license/1 year is $22.95 US.
    If the program is any good that's a reasonable price.

    very slow scanning. i had to try the install a few times as i kept getting errors. and the uninstall did not go well either. i got a error before shutdown and after restart i had to remove some things manually. i may play with it more later but be careful on a every day system.
