    Something which I found odd is that on the home page of PSafe it is written: "the most used anti-virus in the world"

    Is it true? :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    They claim to be protecting 150 thousand PCs in Brazil and 300 million worlwide (o_O).
    Also the results on the video are far too good for a new AV.

    There's something suspicious here. It smells like an old AV with a new face.

    Ever that he is the most used in Brazil, much less in the world. I wouldn't trust them.

    I'm brazilian too and never saw this software before. If it is a rogue antivirus , they did a good job on this one.

    Edit: Not a rogue :D

    Then it's the usual marketing obviously. Does anyone know the answer of my previous question?

    Funny, i thought avast! was the worlds most used freeware antivirus and it "only" has 164 million users. So how can an antivirus no one heard about have 300 million users? I smell BS...

    The Scan Speed indicates high cloud usage...

    Is it possible that this is PrevX 3 in a new GUI ??

    That's written in Italian. Where did you get it? Psafe install .exe?

    File properties of QHEngine.dll on PSafe folder (after install from PSafeSetup.exe).

    That's written in Italian because I use Italian windows xp.
