    I didn't knew they had an antivirus ... I know sigs counting doesn't say a lot but I saw they had like 115000 sigs allready a year ago, personaly I find this quite impressive and if this product is as good as their antispyware then...then it's good :)

    maybe this AV has been discussed before, if this is the case: oops ...

    I'll try it this eve, let's hope the mem usage is less then their AS :) (doesn't mean that much, I know...)

    we'll see this eve ...

    I believe they are using someone else's Av engine.

    Yes, it's another KAV clone.

    Take a look here.

    that's funny, the same opinion like me...lol

    anyway, I'm still gonna try it but since I it's a clone, I always would choose the original ;)

    thanx blackcat,

    I think that with PCTools AntiVirus, you get no extended database whatsoever (since they got their own AntiSpyware product to do this). Due to that, I consider th original Russian KAV to be the better package. :)
