    Cat Quick Heal?
    They are known for low detection rates.

    My impressions:

    1) Interface is OK.
    2) Features are passable
    3) Detection rates are very poor, CAT concentrates mainly on ITW malware
    4) It has a joke of a heuristic engine
    5) Its sales team is somewhat aggressive
    6) Never contacted their support, but I find the local support time hours somewhat low (I believe its 10AM to 6PM India Standard Time, but support should be 24/7).

    Well, I would say that stuff like HAURI Virobot and AhnLab is the worst. But QuickHeal isn't far ahead of Virobot and AhnLab. ;)

    In the past I tried Quickheal, it was not in the least impressive at all. It doesn't take very much to out perform it.:thumbd:

    The thread looks like spam. I've seen Quickheal supporters and they are the worst. People say things about this forum and nod32 but atleast nod32 deserves the attention. Last time i checked Quickheal was bugged by FPs.
