    Ok, now that I have just realized that I have both and they are good for next 347 and 360+ days respectively. Is there anything that would warrant switching my real time from TMIS to EZ 6.2? I really like Trend and don't have any reason personally. I mean is there something that EZ can do that TMIS does not? Just would like to make sure that I have the right real time and on demand for this pc. :D

    If you like Trend and the way it runs, why change? Then again, you could run one for a month and the other for the next month.
    On my end, I run the one I like, not somebodys opinion of what I should run. :D

    i'd bet my bucks on EZ 6.2 as it has the latest VET engine which has the full heuristic capability. TMIS is nice but you won't get full heuristic support. TMIS has heuristic at the database level only.

    I do run the one that I like, lol. I just wanted to know if the the new 6.2 had something that this one didn't. I prob will keep EZ as on demand unless there is dang good reason to swap them.

TMIS is nice but you won't get full heuristic support. the TMIS engine has macro and script heuristics but not for win32 viruses and worms or trojans. TMIS has heuristic at the database level only for those.

    as u have both licenses, keep EZ as the on-access and TMIS as on demand. no need to uninstall TMIS. use the PCCTools.exe or PCCtool.exe in TMIS folder to disable on access services.

    OK, now E-Trust is scanning over 40,000 MORE files than either NOD with AH or TMIS did. What is it scanning that they did not?

    Different av scanners just count files and folders differently. One might call a compressed folder with with six files in it as 1 scanned object where as the next one might count it as six objects but they both scanned the same amount.

    Thanks bigc. Glad to know that NOD32 is scanning them all since I just put it on here again after finding out that it was not my problem.

    POP3 scanning is introduced in this version 6.2 so don't expect it to be bug-free.
