    I'd like to try this product. I understand it is essentially a real time product with no on demand type uses. It stops malware and destroys it in real-time. But does it have some kind of quarantine system like traditional antivirus/antispyware products have?

    What happens if BoClean rids your machine of a supposed piece of malware that actually is not malware and messes your system up? That's what quarantines are for and I've dealt with this with Antivir FPs.

    Thanks.

    Oh, and would it get along fine with SAS Pro and Antivir?

    CBoc can be config'd to keep copy of the trojan, but it also has an exceptions list with drag&drop abilites for white-listing your trusted .exe's.Very easy to use!

    Upon installation, was email required, cause I didn't give it! Seems to work fine. Also, it hangs a little (takes 1 or 2 minutes) to generate the notepad file with the list of covered malware. Is that normal?

    I like this program a LOT! How easy can it get!

    Took about a minute and a half to generate on my system.

    I gave my email address when I subscribed to update notifications... a real plus if you don't care for auto updating.

    The covered malware list generation took 1 minute for me just now. I never paid attention until you asked.

    I like the program a lot too. I've been a user for more than 5 years. Also, this program generates fewer false positives than any other that I currently run or that I have tried.

    Program upgrades are not handled as seamlessly as I would like. Kevin always had a certain way of doing things (when releasing a new build) that must have been necessary, but always seem convuluted, to me. But more often than not everything worked okay at the end of the day.

    I was not a great big fan of the sale to Comodo, but I like the program enough to not let the new company spoil it for me, and I'm happy to report, they haven't.

    Good luck.

    I have it running along with SAS, AVG, SpywareBlaster, and my AV, NOD32. No conflicts at all. I haven't gotten any trojans since I installed BOClean, so I can't comment on the way they are handled. :)
