    My security system:
    AV: Mcafee Enterprise 8 with antispyware module
    AT: Boclean
    FW: SP2
    I have 1 year ewido license. I haven't use it. Can ewido add more security to my system?

    Why not use Ewido as an on demand scanner? Sort of a double check. Ewido does detect tracking cookies and such that Boclean dosen’t fix. I also run BoClean, I think it’s a good bit of software for straight up trojan detection at the front door.

    Exactly. I use NOD32 for real time protection but run ewido once a week when I do my scans. It never finds anything but it's good to have it there in case anything slips by NOD32.

    Yes...;) you need it!!! Coz there are some other things that I think only Ewido can detects. I use the free version as an on-demand scanner and it really can find "something" that some others have misses...:p and if I got my new laptops I'll probably use the plus version for its real-time monitor protection. :cool:

    i am trialling both TH and Ewido atm (i.e. deciding which one is better and will subscribe with a better one. any suggestion?). ewido seems to pick up more malicious files than TH according to my observation. however there are two files which TH picked up in "C:\RECYCLER\ .... " folder that Ewido could not. I can't seem to locate the \RECYCLER\ folder in my C drive hence the file.

    Thanks again TopperID :) I realised that after I had cleaned my Recycle Bin these files were completely gone.
