    I personally have not tested the program but since there are approximately 20 references to MicroAntiVirus on the Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware List....I'll do a little more checking before recommending it to family\friends.

    First thing that i don't like is similarity with Symantec.
    Second is no trial at all and third is this one...

    Worm.SomeFool

    This is their "latest" threats list. It's the same for whole year, they just change date above.
    Tagging is also completelly off, Win32 vs W32 c'mon!? SomeFool is ClamWin detection and SDBot.gen is Kaspersky's generic detection. Not to mention @mm tag which is mainly used by McAfee and Symantec (and few others from time to time like Norman). Common sense tells me that i should avoid this junk at all cost. I recommend others to do the same...

    Wow it's everywhere. I never really checked it this way lol. Anyway stay away from it and use known AV's (approved/tested by ICSA and/or VB100%).
