    Yeah, I tried it while it was still in beta. Bad move on my part.
    I started a thread on it HERE.
    Maybe you will have better luck with it.
    My advice thou is to have a good back up before you install this.

    Have they fixed the utterly absurd FPs yet?

    I remember it even went as far as to flag Internet Explorer, of all things, as a backdoor trojan. When a security software marks everyday, common and widespread programs that come with Windows itself as dangerous, it really doesn't help my opinion of said security software at all.

    Personally I dont need Mamutu or other sw like it since I run LUA, but when I tried in beta, mamutu did its job fairly well. It just sat there quiet until something suspicious hapened. Not annoying. I threw a few malware at it and it caught them, thats about what I know about its efficiency really, but as software it caused me no problems.
    If I ever go back to admin I sure would evaluate it more.
