    Does anyone know about this new product. It looks pretty good, with rootkit detection, antispam, registry monitoring, and just about everything you need.

    Not very, there are plenty others around who cost around the same or more.

    (Please take note of the conversion, Polish Zloty to US Dollars)
    119.56 PLN = 40.1642 USD

    it's not in euro's or dollars, but priced in PLN (dont know what that exactly means :D ). 119 PLN = 30 euro's (about 36 dollars)

    this forum is biased!
    if thats the case its not that pricey.

    buyt arcavia with anti-stealth, the name alone just reminds me of antivir with nod32's technology. *lol* :D

    Actually 30 euro's for a suit is cheap. Interface looks neat.

    Yeah, but of what I see people post at joitti, about 50 percent of the stuff is never detected by Arcavir. So I think the comparision to Antivir or Eset is mistaken.

    Its a very nice product, but sometimes misses out on common malware because they do no have access to VB and AV-comparatives test sets, as they do not participate in those tests. Its engine is very good and has a lot of potential, but I feel the product still needs some work.

    I would say it detects a bit less than Dr.Web overall. Its heuristic is sometimes "trigger-happy", but not too much.

    Every time when somebody mentions Arcavir, I automatically think about Kobra’s famous SHOWDOWN” test. :D I don’t know how this av performs lately but back 2-3 years it was nothing but average.

    Arcavir is the english version of MKS antivirus which is from Poland.
    I had a license a few years ago.
    About that time Arcavir added a firewall.
    Seems to me that they lost the english support site (Stormbyte) and that factored into it's loss of popularity.
    It was average.

    Actually, I see that ArcaVir detects far more at Virus.org's scanner than it does at Jotti's. The reason is unknown to me, perhaps Jotti uses an older version? o_O

    I think it is because Jotti is for scanning on Linux platforms. And that is why you see a difference im not sure.
