There's not trial version of BOclean?
No, but a money back guarentee, no questions asked, and there aren't any yearly fees, so you pay for the product and get free updates, and the oppurtunity to return it at any time and get your money back.
Plus, you can use it on multiple computers within your household (up to four I think) as a home user for the one license fee. Pretty cool! It took me awhile to catch onto BOClean, despite all the good comments I'd read - but once I did, I like it!
Would I need it if I use KAV and get ewido on demand?
Only you can determine what you need. In the case you mention, I doubt it is necessary. I like having it running as an extra layer of protection.
I use KAV and Ewido on demand and have BOClean. With KAV in real time BOClean has never had to to anything for me. The only time I have seen it do anything is if I am purposely testing something and disable KAV first. Otherwise it sits there running nice and light just waiting for the moment for KAV to slip up
I bought it as a second line of defence and was attracted by it's one-off fee (no subscription) and the multi use licence at home. If it had the same subscription and single-user type licence as the other major players, Ewido, Asquared etc. then I wouldn't have bothered.
Also, to avoid upsetting any NOD32 users, I have NOD32 running on one of my other home PCs and likewise BOClean has not needed to do anything as NOD has always kicked in first
So in summary if you have a top notch AV I don't think you do need BOClean but if you have some spare cash the cost, especially if you put it on a few home PCs, is so small for for that added layer of protection
I ordered and tried BOClean and it did not run very well on my laptop, I expercienced really high cpu spikes, so I decided to uninstall the product and request a refund. As per Digital River, I submitted the reqiured Letter of Destruction, refund was processed, then it took 6 or 7 business days before the credit appeared on my credit card account.
Are you sure it was BOClean who was the source to the problem? There seems to be a conflict with an other software on your laptop. I´ve tested several security software in combination with BOClean and never experienced any sort of high, unormal CPU spikes. Only when BOClean updates, and then runs a memory check I´ve noticed a smaller CPU spike, which is normal.
Cerxes, the only other software I was running at the time was F-prot AV. I contacted Kevin, and as far as he knew there was no issue with F-prot and BOClean. These were the only two programs running real time. After I uninstalled BOClean, cpu spikes discontinued and my system was back to normal. BOClean did not work for me, I thought it was a great program and wish I could have kept it, now I have KAV 5.0 instead.
As of today, I have removed KAV 5.0.527 and re-installed F-prot antivirus, I just really like F-prot antivirus.
You make me very sad, you have removed two of my babies...
I still a haven't gotten BOClean. I thought maybe KAV might do the trick and it is. Thanks to everyone who replied.
