    I see this is on sale on Bits and was wondering if this is worth buying?

    I've known about this for a while but could not see spending 70 bucks on a TM replacement since there are so many others out that either cost much less or are free, but you get what you pay for in most cases.

    I have Chameleon now and am happy with it.

    I like it but it seems heavy compared to other similar programs. I personally use Process Hacker.

    I seen your earlier post on that, think I'll look that one up.

    By the way, has anyone heard about Chameleon TM having a root kit? Prevx just hit this up as having one but strangely only under virtualization.

    70 bucks. It,s like throwing 70 bucks away. I fail to understand why one will buy this software even for few bucks.

    I know what your saying Aigle, I really like the sound of Process Hacker after reading up on it.

    To be fair they lowered the price to 50 I think, and the programs installer is just loaded with crapware.

    Personally I use Sysinternals Suite or System Nucleus,but I've used Anvir free version in the past and found it to be pretty decent.I've no idea what premium features could possibly justify a $70 price tag though :eek: .

    Agreed. Process Hacker or even Comodo Cleaning Essentials (not a fan of the company but in this case...), which is based on Process Hacker...but with a twist are good alternatives.

    So I tried this Anvir, and you guys are right, what a bloated piece of crap!

    It has some pluses but not many, too many minuses to useo_O
