    How is the Dr. these days? I had a license for it awhile ago, but ended up trying out new things. Just wondering how it is on resources and detections rates. I dont see much mention of them any more.

    love dr web myself. they now have a more unified gui where things are centralized, detection is better imo and scan speeds are faster (well for dr web they are as it had one of the slowest scanners out there lol) overall its much better than before overall. i dont find it to heavy though it is a bit, not nearly as much as some others. ram usage is still kinda high. i would be using it if the price points were better. they are a bit to expensive imo and i hardly ever see any good deals for it anymore. the last time i bought lic's were when they ran the lic exchange thing for a competing av. still a great av i feel

    Not that it is relating to you, but I think Dr Web was the one who found the Mac Flashback Trojan that infected 700,000 Macs and was the first to sinkhole the C&C. They were the lead AV company with fellow Kaspersky to do the first days research.

    All four answers and you get a key to the e-mail for 3 months. Plus one month demo key. Through four months, you can use a demo key again. Total: 5 per month free license.

    I've used it for a year now on my main computer and love it. Some complain about a slower than average on demand scan speed, but that's irrelevant to me anyway. I like the detection and the http filter/scanner. I also have had no false positives the whole year I've used it. Its high priced but also a high quality product.

    I installed Security Space V.8 on the laptop I'm using right now. I have never installed Dr. Web before. I must say I am impressed with it so far. I have only had it installed a few hours but my 1st impression is very good! I'm going to try it for awhile & see what happens.

    I have heightened respect for Dr Web over the last 18mos or so.

    But it's on the Android platform that I use Dr. Web Light. It's awesome. Just saying. Wanted to spread some love the Dr's way. :)

    when i try to translate this page it gives me a error and says it cant.. i finally did get the trial lic. i simply went through each page and translated each question. trying it out now.

    i would love to buy a decent 3pc lic for a few years but its way to pricey for me. i really like dr web but not at that price. if i could find a great deal i would grab a lic quickly...hint hint out to dr web.....im sure many others would also.

    actually going to submit to be a reseller. will see what they say will report back..

    Dr. Web is nice, but too expensive.. It would break the bank to install it on client PC's, or even my home PC's.. I install a lot of Panda-CloudPro on client PC's because I can snag it for a few bucks a license. So Panda makes it up in volumn for sure. Anyway, they should bundle DrWeb with MBAM and make an elite version of MBAM. They could call it SpyderBytes.. :D That product would be amazing.

    I paid $43.00 for 3 years of Bullguard for 5 machines. That's a great price, making the AV market extremely competitive, great deals from ALL companies that are hard to beat.. What DrWeb people need to realize is they need to compete, or they lose money everyday. Is it better to get $40-$100, and a long term customer w/word of mouth or 0$ and nothing? $385US for the same license is ... Excessive.

    Major sales DrWeb making on corporate clients .. The License is really expensive. I asked this question on the forum, but the company could not say anything in the forum about their pricing. There was no combining with other vendors will not be. DrWeb is the only purely Russian antivirus.

    I rate Dr Web, I have Dr Web Lite on my android and it's been pretty good so far. I agree that the pricing is a little excessive, but when you break it down a 3 year 1 user license costs 60 euro's which is 20 euro's a year. Not bad at all for a very good and chock full of quality and fully featured AV.

    They need a 'home' license for say, up to 5 PC's in the home. Many of us have kids, wife, and second or third PC's where we need this. Companies that have such licenses tend to get my money, other companies charge like it is a SOHO license or something. Way too expensive.

    I am a licensed user of the good Doctor, from V6, V7 and now V8 of their Security Suite. During that time it protected me and I never had a problem or virus (knock on wood). :D
    It worked great with OS XP, then Win 7 (64 bit), but on Win 8 (64 bit) problems began.
    On all prior OS, there was no slow down in web browsing, however, with Windows 8 the slow down was noticeable, annoying and wasting my time looking at the web page loading, which took a very long time to load, compared to XP or Win 7.
    Although I have a license for the good doctor until 2014, I had to uninstall it and use another AV suite. :'(
    In my case (can't speak for anyone else), Dr Web Security Suite on Windows 8 (64 bit) is a disaster. :mad:
    For the record, I still think Dr Web Security Suite is terrific, having had the experience of using it with the previous OS's with no hint of problems.
    That is my .0002 cents.
    Cheers :D

    Are you kidding... that will rectify the slow web page loadingo_O?
    I was told (forget where I saw this, or who told me) that disabling the "cloud" reduces the effectiveness of the good doctor. :doubt:
    I am NOT disputing your input or advice, but please clarify the significance (or lack thereof) of the "cloud" in the effectiveness and efficiency of Dr Web V8?:)
    Thanks
    Cheers :D

    Bottom line: Don't run Windows 8. Wait for Blue, W7 works and everything runs fine on it. I still don't understand why people play russian roulette with Microsoft, and rush out to put these new, buggy, and potentially abandonable OS's on their machines. It's just not worth it.

    Ridiculously high pricing.. Which is why Dr. won't ever see the light of day around here for me, or my clients PCs. Their loss.

    I get the feeling Dr.Web is only "intended" for Eastern European and Russian users. That being said, way too expensive for me.

    No, no. I'm not kidding

    Cloud is designed to test the traffic by most recent online databases.The technology is still raw for DrWeb. The traffic will be checked offline databases very fine. I know what I'm talking about. Your defense will not suffer.

    I agree with your opinion that the price is too high.At the same time, I want to say that a good defense can not be very cheap.Doctor Web, one of the few vendors that use their own technology, its own development, its own detection.Throughout the world, these vendors can be counted on the fingers of one hand.
