    Hello,

    I am choicin between the two anti trojan scanners/ anti malware scanners.

    I believe the top of the hill is Boclean or Ewido.

    For which one should you advice me to run near NOD32?

    Regards
    Jordi

    I use NOD32 and currently use Ewido. I also have a licence for BOClean. They both work fine with NOD. I would suggest BOClean for a older machine that has a slower processor with 512k memory or less as Ewido uses more resources.

    BOClean doesnt have a on-demand scanner, so keep ewido free for scans. best of both worlds.

    You can use both of them without any problem with nod32, but if you run an older machine I would follow Hammers suggestion.

    I was thinking of putting Ewido on my family machine and keeping Boclean on my older compaq...but now this AVG-Ewido marriage of a sort has caused me to reconsider. :cautious: For now BoClean all the way.

    Just limit yourself to the one year licence for Ewido and stay clear of the "Lifetime Licence."

    Prior to being purchased by AVG, Ewido offered a lifetime licence option which entitled you to program and definition updates. I think the cost may have been around $80.00. But after checking Ewido's web site just now that option appears to no longer exist.
