    Has anyone tried Dr. Web lately it used to be pretty good at finding hard to find malware..

    Doctor Web is the Russian developer of Dr.Web anti-virus software. We have been developing our products since 1992. The company is a key player on the Russian market for software that meets the fundamental need of any business — information security. Doctor Web is one of the few anti-virus vendors in the world to have its own technologies to detect and cure malware. Our anti-virus protection system allows the information systems of our customers to be protected from any threats, even those still unknown. Doctor Web was the first company to offer an anti-virus as a service and, to this day, is still the undisputed Russian market leader in Internet security services for service providers. Doctor Web has received state certificates and awards; our satisfied customers spanning the globe are clear evidence of the high quality of the products created by our talented Russian programmers.

    Tia :)

    I used it for a small amount of time a few years ago. Found that it was pretty light, but expensive. There arent many deals on it so it gets tossed by the way side with so many free options available.

    i used it as a scanner a couple years ago, the cure-it version is free.. check this out, a minute ago i found this report..

    The Dr.Web anti-virus from Doctor Web turned out to be the only one out of 7 widely used anti-virus programs that wouldn't give in to participants of the International Alternative Workshop on Aggressive Computing and Security under the aegis of the ESIEA.


    The first International Alternative Workshop on Aggressive Computing and Security was held on October 23-25, 2009 in Laval, France. As a part of the event seven anti-viruses were tested to determine if their self-protection could be disabled in sixty minutes. Anti-viruses were tested on Windows machines and testers had administrator's privileges in the systems. For more information about the testing, visit ESIEA's web-site .

    The test showed that self-protection of anti-viruses from such vendors as Kaspersky Lab and Eset could be disabled in 40 and 33 minutes respectively while the defence mechanism of Norton Antivirus would break much sooner, in 4 minutes. The McAfee anti-virus was the quickest to fall and surrendered to testers in 2 minutes. AVG and G Data anti-virus solutions also failed to pass the test. Russian Dr.Web turned was the only anti-virus that wasn't disabled in sixty minutes...:thumb:

    When a thread veers from one particular product to one that involves other products, it is no longer acceptable for the antivirus forum.

    Discussing one antivirus product is acceptable.
