    Just installed it.No firewall with it yet.
    Very basic antivirus,i have used many and dont recognise it.
    Only demand scan option is to scan drives A,C,D,etc,you cannot add files etc.
    Full scan only scaned 23,000files,where others like nod scan 80,000
    Realtime settings are no options.I will keep it on for a test.It scans for 140,000 viruses

    It's Freedom AntiVirus and FireWall. It's a Command product.

    AV part should be good, particularly as it is free.

    Past thread is here.

    Thanks,thats the one.I like it and will stay with it.It runs very light .i have read that when they upgrade it to firewall as well ,there will be a small charge if you want the full package,so i will just keep the antivirus.

    I just couldn't activate that program because of some missing membership to certain network provider (NTL). I tried to unsinstall that proggie after I tried to install that before but some ntl folder was unable to remove. Tried with TotalUninstall too but no success. Damn proggie.

    Best regards,
    Firefighter!

    NTL is a UK ISP/Broadband provider so it would not reach as far as Finland ;)

    Does anyone use Command antivirus (Authentium)and can tell me why it would only scan 23,000 files on demand when nod or kav scans 80,000+files.
    I know antivirus count differently but such a massive difference.I select c drive with all boxes ticked,about 16,ie,documents, windows ,program files,etc

    As long as you have set the on-demand scanner to check ALL files the reason is mainly due to the difference in counting files. However, take into account that even with the latest update to the engine, compared to the likes of KAV, CSAV has a relatively poor unpacking engine.

    If you look closely over at the av-comparatives site and then select from the main menu;

    Comparatives> A separated test of other products can be found here.

    Where they state that the CSAV engine is based on the (nearly) same F-Prot engine and therefore falls into the same category of detection.

    That is Advanced (+) for on-demand detection and Standard for retrospective testing.
