    PandaLabs has developed a new engine that scan the PC in a minute called Nanoscan, tried it to test it, it took 1 to 2 min to install the activex and 55 sec to scan my PC. Congratulations! for me no viruses, spyware, Trojans, or any other ACTIVE threats on my PC( I'm using F-secure client Security 2007 ).

    I think the new nano is some how like Prevx ! in their blog the wrote that the Nano based on three main pillars:

    1) Collection of data from the Web community.The system centrally collects and stores behavioral patterns of programs, file traces, new malware samples, etc. This data comes from Panda users,....

    2) Automatic leverage of data. The system automatically analyzes and classifies the thousands of new samples received every day.....

    3) Making the knowledge available.This knowledge is delivered to users as web services or through signature file updates.

    The nanoscan doesn't support Firefox now, but it will be available in April!

    I hope they put this engine in their new product

    the site is http://www.nanoscan.com

    TotalScan is not new, I know it Beta but it's the ActiveScan 2.

    Oh and Sorry The One I didn't know that it was mentioned before. I'll be more careful in the future.

    That's ok Bo9us

    It's a really good security tool.
    First you are able to scan with the nanscan than you are redirected to activescan 2.

    Both are effective and very fast

    I ran the nanoscan just before xmas and chnged to avira antiviri a day or so later.

    It flagged up the nanoscan as a suspicios object. It had left a couple of folders in c\windows\system32\Panda software\nanoscan. One of them was 13.1mb!!

    It only scans for active threats (memory), that's why it's so fast.
    It probably scans some essential OS files too with heuristics enabled, otherwise the scan time would be a lot less.
    It kinda reminds of those antivirus applications that doesn't require any signature updates to detect threats, but people know they are crap - Antivirus applications needs signatures to detect threats & prevent false/positive detections.

    But since it's Panda (my old preferred AV app) I'm gonna wait & see how this turns out.
    They are quite good at developing new tech but this ... Well let's just say I don't expect miracles.
