    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. :)

    Hello all,

    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"!

    You know we don't like the bashing of products, so please state the reasons why you think this product is unworthy of installing.
