Is it any good? It's only $20 bucks.
This is a version of CAT's Quickheal.
Not a great AV.
Your 20 bucks would be better spent purchasing Extendia AVK Pro at a place like C*mpUSA, in my opinion.
Yes, I have heard of and tested QuickHeal/WinCleaner & wished that I hadn't. Here's a summary of some of the things that I didn't like about QH/WC:
1) The number of virus "false postives' with QH heuristic processing enabled is staggering and completely unacceptable.
2) AV scanning rate is poor.
3) QH/WC currently has only weekly AV updates.
4) When QH AV Active/Monotoring was turned on, my 1.6Ghz-based PC ran like a P-700.
For only ten dollars more that QH/WC, you can buy a really GOOD product like BitDefender V7 or for the same money AVK as mentioned previously in this thread.
There's my $.02 worth,

This performance classifies this AV already in the category "rubbish"!
for me it sucked..would crash my system, win98SE halfway through a scan.
turning off programs didn't help at all
The design of the box at PC World put me off lol. Never even bothered to look on the back of the box either, just looked like cheep crap.
It is crap!!!
