    @ Paul2
    How did you do that? I thought the downloads offered are in german and contained a 1 year license in the installer? (i'm not home so didn't try out myself yet)

    Simple, the installer comes in many languages and auto install himself in the computer native language (my case english) .

    As for PestPatrol :

    I only have the "original" version of it, and not the newer one from CA (although I can get definition-updates).
    So I cannot speak about the newer version from CA.
    But I would warn for false positives from PP !!!
    The FP's from PP are ridiculous :(

    Only two examples (on a W98SE machine) :

    But, as I said, this was not from the latest CA-version of PestPatrol.

    Smokey. nice find smokey! Never thought Pest Patrol would ever be given as a freebe. Tryed the anti virus a while back an it was un-stable on my os.
    There are some youngsters I know who may have a use for PP.

    thanks for the heads-up

    It's my pleasure;)

    Wilders Security Forums is for me the best place to share all security items, and to give info about free commercial software belongs to the same chapter.

    IMHO we are all here to help each other and sharing information is one of the most important issues on Wilders;)

    Last time I tried PP was about a year ago . It was pathetic compared to others in that type of class . I am curious as to how well this " new " version will fare .
    NOTOK . Very nice site . I must say that it pretty much shows the truly GREATS in security . Well done and Kudos to you . Probably the best I have seen as the apps you mention are top class !

    Hi,

    First of all: thanks to Smokey for giving the info !!!!! :D

    My reply is only for the PestPatrol part of it.

    I have to admit that I find it a little bit difficult to answer.
    For several reasons:
    1.
    I have only Windows 98 SE Dutch.
    2.
    I don't have the latest version of PestPatrol (PP) from CA.

    I have the "original" version of PP for several years, almost from the start of it.
    I have never ever let PP run resident.
    I only let it do scans on-demand; and not even that very frequently.
    I hate to say it, but PP has for so many times giving false positives.
    In my humble opinion you cannot trust its results.
    But that might have changed in the latest version from CA; I don't know...

    Ask how many Spyware-fighters rely on it or recommand it.
    My guess : not many ...

    You can let PP do a free scan of your system:
    http://www.pestpatrol.com/prescan.htm
    I haven't done it.

    You can also for example let Panda do a free online scan:
    http://www.pandasoftware.com/products/activescan.htm
    and KAV:
    http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner
    and Trend Micro:
    http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

    There is the free version of Ewido (not running on W98SE).
    The free version is only for on-demand scanning.
    http://www.ewido.net/en/

    And all those free versions of SpywareBlaster, SpywareGuard, IE-SPYAD, MVPS HOSTS-file, Ad-Aware, Spybot S&D, etc.


    And, if parents of kids can afford it:
    (no, this is not an advertisement)
    get BOClean (of course in combination of an anti-virus (AV)) !!!
    It's a one time pay (well, at least for now). Set it up in unattended cleaning mode.
    Or TrojanHunter.
    Or Ewido.
