    I bring to your attention Cysec. A free anti-virus with apparently one of the highest detection rates. More of a single file scanner. It uses Trend Micro House Call for the full scan.

    Regards

    "On detection rate CYSEC was always going to be the winner, why? Because they use a central database that test the file against every known AV vendor on the market, over a 1000 different test Malware CYSEC detected 97% of all Malware, AVG with 86% came in a distant second and AVAST with 84% scooting up behind. The Anti-Virus tool has the advantage that it will allow you to scan a file against EVERY single anti-virus product on the planet, well 30 of the bigger players in the Malware detection market.

    This one is certainly different. Single file scanner, no real time protection and yet it still installs itself to be started with Windows (God knows why), and to add insult to uselessness to do a full scan one must download and install the thoroughly horrible HouseCall.

    Definitely a keeper (she adds with sarcasm).

    Hi Kees,
    Those images at the top are really classy :D I wonder if they are present in the installation as separate files ?
    Also did you try it against real malware ?

    Bug-free software... God I haven't laughed so much for a long time thanks :rolleyes:

    No problem. I expect software to have a bug or two, but I expect a company that knows about them and has known for months to fix them and not ban people for bringing it up.
