    NOD32 is lighter but both of them are good heuristic-based scanners :D

    Answered in www.av-comparatives.org with their latest retrospective tests. Nod32 1st with 70% detection, Bitdefender 2nd with 49% detection.

    Cheers :D

    But it was with Bitdefender 8...did not Bitdefender 9 improved its heuristics?

    Only about an hour ago I trialed Panda Truprevent 2005 and it detected and eliminated after updating 3 nasties from my Windows Registry.

    Dialer.BJP
    Dialer.AKD
    Adware/ExactSearch

    I have scanned my Laptop before with DrWeb 4.32b with risky/nasty beta defs, Vba32 v3.10.5 beta, NOD32 for Windows 2003/XP - 64 BIT v2.51.8 with AH, the new KAV online scan, Ewido 3.5 Plus, M$ AntiSpyware beta, Ad-Aware SE 1.06 Personal, SpyBot 1.4 with Beta defs, F-secure Blacklight beta plus I have SpywareGuard, SpywareBlaster and BOClean 4.12 installed on my Laptop too. After all these they still detected nothing. :mad:

    Best regards,
    Firefighter!

    As I said from day one: Panda has very good detection, but it's a hog which is the only reason why I'm not using their software anymore, even though I still have 376 days left of my license :)

    Truprevent is not an entire antivirus program, it's like a sandbox, almost.

    Aren't the only programs that actually scan the registry the antispyware programs?
    (Did you actually have the malware are just the supposed registry entries for them?)

    Is it likely that Truprevent would conflict with other AVs such as Bit Defender?

    Thanks,
    Jerry

    Apparently it works with many but has been said by some reviewers to cause slowdowns.

    NOD32's Heuristics are worthless, they detect nothing.

    Your persuasive writing skills need a little improvement... when you make a claim you need to back that claim up with evidence from a credible source. :)

    No chance of FP? You seemed to have scanned with everyting but the kitchen sink.

    Either those are false positives or we should all dump our current security programs and download Panda! :)

    Or they are valid findings pointing to malware that has been already dealt with. The registry is a database, it contains configuration and state information. These entries could be neglected orphans. It's good practice to deal with them, but they are not a sign of active infestation.

    Agreed, a reg cleaner should have found these, or a manual inspection after an infection.

    Maybe, but not that EasyCleaner which made a full all possible clean just before the Truprevent installation. :eek:

    Even this VGrep shows about that Adware/ExactSearch, that they are not all so easy to detect.
