Have been thinking about a few AV choices lately. The task is: Install an all around AV solution on some friend's PC. The scanner should be good in virus and trojan detection, i.e. without the need for an additional AT solution. -> NOD is no choice Second: The on access scanner should be fast enough to be hardly noticed, so that it can be left monitoring all the time with no user intervention -> Kaspersky and Kaspersky based AVs are out, because even with multiple adjustments (thanks to all the helpful comments in the forum ) the monitor is way too heavy, making even faster PCs feel sluggish. Third: Updates should be regular and small (dial-up connection). -> F-Prot is out with its 1.5 MB files Result: Judging by all the recent reviews and VB tests that leaves DrWeb and RAV in the selection. As I had some troubles with false positives with DrWeb I am afraid it would be no good solution for less experienced PC users. I have been evaluating RAV for a few days now and so far I am impressed. The engine is really quick, no bluescreens or other incompatabilities. Concerning detection rates: Recent tests mentioned in the forum show quite good overall performance. In short: RAV seems to be a competent all in one solution with a fast engine and small and regular updates. But I would like to hear your feedback on RAV before buying. Any long time experience? Any known issues? Thanks for your help. Oh...one last word: I have been reading the wilders forum for a long time...now it's time to participate .
