    I might test it, but I highly doubt I'll implement it with my setup.

    Who knows, it might serve a purpose for someone I know.

    Had it, but decided it was useless unless I actually get infected. Might've kept it if it can scan downloaded files before installing them.

    The point is that actually most part of malwares are complex, often they install deeply, or have many malicious functions. If possible, best way is anyway clean the system, and then restore a disk image.
