    Thanks - I have read the link but am unsure as to what I'm looking for.
    I guess I will just have to start looking for malicious home pages ? and see what happens

    well in the lnik trjam provided, it stated new heuristic, so I don't think we wil be something Avira doesnt have already.

    I honestly dont know any more then the link that was sent to me. But I would suffice most are right. I will say that they are working on a new enhanced root kit detection that may surprise all when complete. Of course I may get in hot water for saying that, but they are tolerant of me by now. I will also say that by years end, this suite will not even be close to comparable to what is plan. So if they are at the top right now, they are doing what is required to solidify that position. Nuff said.
