    Nice review there jmonge, as always! :D One great feature about it, is also that it is probably the AV that doesn't conflict with any other security application, ever and you can even run it next to your existing AV.

    Isn't that great! :D

    Well I thought this was very funny, but sadly I know many people who would have easily fallen for this. Made me smile - thanks Fajo! I've uninstalled FD-ISR, SandboxIE, Shadow Defender, Symantec Endpoint Protection and my entire operating system and am running PlaceboAV on it's own. It's a definite keeper for me! :thumb:

    Finally, an AntiVirus being developed that realizes that producing an endless number of signatures is simply not sustainable. The heuristics in this AV are exceptional and I suspect all its competitors are busy reverse engineering it, as we speak. :thumb:

    Did you check the posts I mentioned? Maybe after then you too would be sarcastic.

    Placebo doesn't do anything on Linux either.
    Great addition to rkhunter!

    At least you will always know where your AV will rank in tests.. None of that up and down roller coaster.

    I tried to download PlaceboAV but couldn't.
    Then it struck me; It's so good, it doesn't need to be downloaded or installed.

    Total protection freeware and no updating headaches, plus absolutely no drag on my system.

    Only one thing; where is the link to submit FPs ?
