    if you search around this forum you will find it how reputable is that specific av. i use it on my mobile because it has good parental control on android but i think it is a little to aggressive on normal things and little to silent on important stuff. well i am no expert here and i believe others may help you a little further . .

    I'have seen some tests and it has not fared particularly well. It is not very popular

    USA still the best. But getting worse!
    Afair the yearly cost is high.
    In the past I have used & enjoyed the totally free not the trial version of their Android app.

    IMO, Dr. Web is mediocre at best. If I were you, I would stick with one of the popular AV solutions (Avira, Avast, Bitdefender, Eset, Kaspersky etc.).
    If you don't know what AV solution is best for you, just download the trial version of your choice and give it a try.

    I used to use it in the version 3/4 days, and I liked it very much. Nowdays, I cannot recommend it. In fact, I can't recommend any anti malware/antivirus. They cannot keep up. You're much better off grabbing cureit, the free Dr Web on-demand scanner, and pairing that with something like OSArmor or Voodooshield,

    Dr Web (a.k.a. "the good doctor") was very popular here at Wilders back in the days of Win98, WinME, & WinXP. Then they hit the skids & are no longer as effective as other choices such as Kaspersky & ESET.

    FREE but very strong set-up for your consideration: Windows Defender (antivirus) plus OSArmor (behavior blocker). Their Wilders threads are at HERE (WinDef) & HERE (OSA).

    Grace & peace to all.

    Agreed! Throw sandboxie into the mix and nothing will harm your system.
