    Update on Jan 3
    • Operating System Support: Full Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 support!
    • User Interface Changes: The "My Community" and "Notices" features have been removed from the UI. These became redundant long ago as we found a way for our Cloud Servers to ensure all users received the full protection of Immunet's global community of over 2 million users, rather than just the few immediate users most had in their local communities.
    • User Interface Changes: We're now "Immunet 3" instead of "Immunet 3.0". There are so many minor changes since our last major release that we've had to rev our version number.
    • Engine Changes: New and improved versions of both the TETRA and Clam engines!
    • Bug Fixes: Network related issues that would cause Net Bios name resolution failures, VPN connection failures, and BSOD’s.
    • Bug Fixes: XML locking issues with the configuration files.
    • Bug Fixes: Many, many more!
    Anyone using it now? (I know KelvinW4 is using it) :)

    I got several false positives with the previous version. The free version still has crippled offline protection, which virus engine does it use?

    I try it sometimes. It goes well alone and along side any other AV i have atm. I never had prob with it. It seems to have its own and ClamAV engines. Its strength is in cloud.

    I like this change. That "Community" feature was really silly hype.

    I may be wrong but I think the Tetra engine is Bitdefender.

    The strength of Immunet free is in its cloud.

    Did you perform on-demand scans?
    Speed?
    Last time I tried it, the scanning speed was quite slow.
    Maybe it gets better when a cache of some kind is build up.

    Yes, another companion AV to run in the background! Actually, I may consider it when my WSA and/or MBAM expires (both giveaways).

    @J_L It has actually been available for a while now but it hasn't been updated until recently.

    @fblais I have run full scans, It was a 1.5hr- 2hr scan on the first one, and now the scans are down to about half an hour. (just happened to scan this morning)

    Good to know that. So, now it uses cache. :cool:

    Thanks Kelvin.
    Are you running the Pro version or in free mode, if I may ask?

    Regards,
    François

    I'm running the free version right now, so it only has cloud version. I am going to add an anti-executable program later for offline protection. current ram usage about 7mb

    Are there any third party reviews where Immunet was demonstrated to be effective?

    Yes I know that, otherwise I'd be unworthy to co-author PBFSLW (Immunet was a pioneer in companion AV's after all). It was a joke about adding it to my own setup.

    I'm curious for someone to test this for a while. It is a great concept, but last I remember it was sluggish and prone to false positives.

    I'm running it since two days.
    However I have a license so I've enabled the Tetra engine. (Bitdefender)
    Avoid the ClamAV engine in the free version if you don't want false positives.
    This engine is also very slow.
    With the cloud only, just do whole computer scans for a few days to build up the cache.

    Immunet-free is my compromise with the option of *using-no-AV-at-all*. I have been running it for a while. No frills AV. Light as a feather. Plays nicely with my other security apps.

    Im-net's initial scan of my C, D, & X drives took ~1½ hours. Subsequent scans take ~45 minutes. Good enuf!

    I prefer to pay for security apps that offer a non-free version. However, I have an always-on connection so I'm struggling to come up with a reason to buy Im-net. Your comments on this matter would be appreciated.

    P.S. Hi to my old friends here. I've not posted in a long while. Such is life (sigh).

    What would the advantage of Immunet-Free vs ClamAV+Sentinel?

    ClamAV+Sent provides non-cloud based, but same database, immunet provides cloud based version of clam, correct?

    Clam+Sent is easily the lightest, easiest, trimmest AV setup I have found yet. It's remarkable how zero of an impact it has, and stacked with MBAM, should be more than enough. Wondering how Immunet would apply in this case? Perhaps a better interface or something? Tragically, I just noticed ClamAV is owned by Cisco now.. <hangs head low> I don't view Cisco as a trustworthy company, and this acquisition is terrible, albeit belated news for me.
