    Definitely go with Twister. Probably will not solve your problem, but I am sure you will love it forever. Simply it is irresistable. :D

    Why are you discriminating product by region?

    There is a product called 360 Antivirus or sth, which is quite popular in China (I guess so):
    Code:
    hxxp://sd.360.cn/?src=360home
    McAfee SiteAdvisor flags the site as dangerous, unfortunately :(

    To be honest,I don't like 360 AntiVirus.I heard its engine came from Bitdefender.But I think Bitdefender wouldn't offer its complete database and technology to 360.

    Protection that is tight is what counts and free but also works. Rising catches what the prior firewalls had missed. You got the world of protection every country has some sort of AV software. Some offer more features. Rising gives network scans some others here gives you a message saying it can't scan networks because you're using the free version. Come on already! Email scanner that doesn't slow down Outlook and the list goes on and on.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I am asking for chinese anti-virus because my pc is infected with a chinese malware program. When shutting down my computer, sometimes a chinese program with chinese characters would say it is shutting down. I have tried all of the well known antivirus program and even icesword but to no effect.

    Frankly if they cant find it you would be better off Formatting then leaving the infection running why you are looking for a solution. this way it cant keep sending info over the web if that's what it is doing.

    Yeah, I agree with Fayo. it seems that the infections is deeply rooted within your system, it's better to have a fresh start than to laboriously remove every single crap out of the folders! ^^

    The .exe is most likely a downloader for the AV, Bitdefender's install exe is only 157KB.

    Reformatting and doing a clean reinstall is obviously the safest solution.

    But have you tried MBAM ?

    Prevx is what about 1 meg. Plenty of AV's out here are small like this if they are working off cloud technology.

    Well unfortunately this one is still a definition-based product, I heard it is one of the many BitDefender's OEMs.

    Like what NAMOR's said the exe is just a download manager. To download the whole installer, just replace "360sd_se.exe" by "360sd_setup.exe" in the URL.

    Btw, screenshot from BETA 2 (GUI looks good :thumb: too bad I don't speak Chinese :D )

    Just because it's used alot means nothing for how good the engine it self is. Basically means they came in as lowest bidder.
