    Just wondering if anyone here has tried the program called "Anti Trojan" .
    I don't see it anywhere in these forums and was wondering how good or bad a program it is.
    thanks ,
    Frank.

    Hi Paul,
    Thanks for the site but I've already been there.
    It eliminates all but 6 programs , it explains how it eliminates all the others but does not specify why each of the others were eliminated.
    I can't find any site that compares Anti Trojan to other programs .
    Not really important , just curious.
    Regards,
    Frank

    Hi Frank,

    True indeed. Fact remains, for an (unspecified) reason this software didn't come through - any of the reasons as of why it has been eliminated seems a good one to me ;).

    On a side note: since both Tauscan and The Cleaner cannot cope with polymorphic trojans, I wouldn't recommend both of them as the tester has done. But that's another story ;).

    regards.

    Makes you wonder about the rest of the test resultso_O?
    For now I'll stick with what all of you well informed people suggest until I am able to make educated decisions of my own .
    Thanks,
    Frank

    Frank,

    It depends. The results are in essence OK; one could say the test bed could have included polymorphic trojans.

    regards.

    Roman runs a very nice site indeed - although in German (obvious as it is) ;).

    regards.

    Hi, what is a polymorphic trojan and what does it do that is different? I use PestPatol and TheCleaner - can The Cleaner not see or not clean the polymorphic ones o_O

    Just for the record a friedn of mine uses Anti Trojan and downloaded one of them AOL programs that clam to freeze chat and stuff and Anti Trojan caught the trojan before it even hit if you know what I mean.
