    Does anyone know anything about BKAV?
    the link below,other than gushing about how great it is,
    is a little vague.
    I cant tell if the free version is on-demand only,or has
    real time.
    (the above link to malwarebytes site,as the CNET link provided there
    does not work when paste it here.)

    I scanned the setup file with Bitdefender, and Avira with not detection. I scanned the setup file with Avast, and it stated a virus was found. Malware Name: Win32:Virut-lJ. It could be a false positive, but regardless i'm not installing it on my machine. I'm going to send it to prevx, and see if i get a reply back from them. I sent them a link to a malware site that i saw on facebook not too long ago, but never got a reply from them. Make any suggestions on who else to send the setup file to for futher investigation.

    I guess it is too big to send to Jotti's or Virustotal.

    Well,that really does not inspire a lot of confidence,does it?
    I run Avira also,maybe i will try submitting it there.

    The download is really slow.
    Well it is time to put returnil through its pace's.

    Either the installer is infected by Virut or they have unprotected signatures.

    Did some very quick tests, which showed catastrophic detection capabilities, even on very old malware from the ITW list. No way there are 300 people working on this - or they are playing Tetris all day.

    The installer is packed with Telock, maybe that's the reason for the false positives.

    Ok,This isnt going to take down NOD-32.
    Its not even going to be a Twister.
    As far as downloading manual updates,
    I get enough of that with Avira two or three
    times a year.

    The land of no identity :D
    I suppose the "300" people include e.g. students of the university, who might be working part time on this as obviously they might need to study and enjoy life too......So yeah, its not a full-fledged team like a normal AV vendor's.
