    Free Norman based AV! That would be stunning, tho I really don't understand anything about the website, and only see trial versions? Maybe somebody else can point to the right page/file...

    This is news!!! Will this product use the same signatures as those of Norman AV? If yes, I feel Avast, Antivir and AVG have a huge competition!!!

    Yes, the website just talks of a trial version...where can I get a full version?

    Hi Big guy !
    I was waiting for you to step in here as I know you like to PLAY with AV s . What I can gather is that the Rebel IS the progra, which contains the AV . Along with the firewall and a few other things . That is all I can figure and I am probably mistaken at that .
    My two cents . Well , half a penny's worth anyway

    Has anyone tried it yet? How has the experience been? Does this use the same engine and signatures of Norman?

    Tried to find a download but to no avail. All links were dead. Apparently an English version of the AV is available but not ready for download.
    From the Web site;

    But IMHO, Norman AV is no great shakes and I would therefore prefer both Avast and AntiVir to this AV.

    I tried this link before with both FireFox and Opera but it would not work. But apparently the English version is downloadable with IE ;)

    If i remember correctly Norman Sandbox wasn't that bad. ( If not very good )

    It is only its normal detection rate is rather low.

    Any idea on resources usage?

    I was somehow dissapointed with perfromance of Sandbox.
    Not to mention it allowed me to execute malicios file which was detected On-Demand but completely ignored by On-Access. Weird o_O

    Looks like Avast/Antivir PE/ AVG will still rule the free AV parade!

    For the single user, Normans sandbox is not available in on-access scanner.

    Technodrome,thats exacty why i was dissapointed? Whats the point of having heuristics if they don't do anything at entry point?
    I contacted Softwin because of the very same reason.
    But good difference apart from Norman Sandbox is that HiVE works in both On-Access and On-Demand scan modes.

    I agree. I guess they don't what to sacrifice the speed and performance that current version of on-access scanner benefits.

    Well I don't know the exact version number, but I think it was v5.81, and it has Sandbox for on-access for local user.

    I am running TrustPort® Workstation Antivirus. It is okay. And its sandbox is active for On-Access & On-Demand scanners, (Use virtual computer) option must be checked to activate SandBox.

    This antivirus is better & lighter than Original Norman® Antivirus, takes < 30 MB only.

    However, this AV -when sandbox s activated- is a great (PC conversion tool) it 'll convert your powerful system (3.xGHz+) to (3.59MHz-) Z80 compatible system.

    I belive you're using firewall or webfilter that removes the webpage referer.

    Now you can take 1-year free license key for home users.
    Take a look at their English website.
