    It is a quite old product...:)
    I have tried this before. Quite buggy and as I remember many AVs detected it before.

    There are much better free real-time AV's available.

    Examples include Avira Free, Avast Home, Microsoft Security Essential, and Panda Cloud Free. Honorary mention to Immunet Protect, and maybe AVG (never tried it, hate bloatware).

    It was mainly a signature based USB virus scanner. Now it is a full AV.

    I appreciate everyone's feedback, but has anyone tried it recently?
    A lot of free products start off as garbage then improve in time with new development.
    Some then even become better than many paid products.

    The reason I would like to know, is I'm starting up a website that supports and promotes only freeware products.
    I only want to add products that will do their jobs as described. I don't have time to test each product out myself.

    But this product doesn't have not one single review any place on the web good or bad.

    For now, I guess I will pass on adding it to my site.

    Thanks.:)

    This isn't a full antivirus for the computer. Just offer usb protection to prevent infections from autoruns. And it has a scanner that you can install in the usb drive to scan it.
