    Hi,

    could someone please send me personal email addresses of the producers of the following AT's:
    a² (a-squared)
    AntiTrojanElite
    AntiTrojanShield
    DigitalPatrol
    Ewido
    PC DoorGuard
    Tauscan
    TheCleaner
    TrojanHunter
    TrojanRemover

    Maybe I plan something and I need to ask them directly their opinion. ;)
    let me know in case I forgot some other known AT programs.
    thx!

    Best regards,
    IBK

    Is it true, these AT companies do have cold feet in putting up their softwares for testing:

    Tauscan - CEO: Mikhail Zakhryapin
    TheCleaner - CEO: Daniel Otis-Vigil
    TrojanHunter - Magnus Mischel

    I can see why Agnitum does: Tauscan is in effect fairly obsolete. I do fail to see any reason for Otis-Vigil and Mischel to be this afraid...

    What on earth are you talking about? TrojanHunter can be downloaded and tested by anyone at any time at http://www.misec.net/products/TrojanHunter.exe

    Now? I distinctly remember replying to your email about testing, though I suppose I could have just hallucinated it...

    Edit: Nope, not hallucinating. This is sitting in my email outbox:

    Can you add BOClean to your list?

    As you know they don't have a scanner, but their ProActive defense is very nice
    and most would be interested in how it compares (if you'll test that way).

    Also, throw in a few top AVs like KAV and NOD to see if an AT is even needed at all
    with them.

    and Thanks for great work on your AV-comparatives!

    No, I can not, as it will be just an on-demand test.
    No matter what the results will be (or if some AV would have higher scores), having an AT is a good addition, e.g. due the other features they offer which some AV's do not have.
