    I'm now using it for few days and i actually quite like it. Very nice interface (probably the best i've seen), nice features and regular updates.
    What i'm wondering is if anyone has ever seen heuristic detection with Rising.
    And i'm not talking about behavior detection (well that also) but from a file scanner. You have to set File Monitor (and other monitors to) to HIGH in order to enable heuristics.
    If anyone has ever had a heuristic detection, can that person post a screenshot of it here or a detection name? I'm really interested on how good it is.

    Also can anyone point me to any recent RAV2009 tests? I'd like to see how 09 version performans compared to others.

    When I ran it for a short time I never had any heuristic detections.
    If I used the "High" setting it would have been only on the scanner.

    I don't know of any tests that included the 2009 version.
    A Google Search shows Check Mark and VB100 certification. No test results.

    Yeah, Rising AV gave me an alert while updating SAS about a certain trojan in the SAS database, and that trojan was actually just added in the SAS database, and Rising had not been updated for a week on that PC.

    Looks like it has heuristics.

    I'm willing to try it out, once I read more positive results from this product.

    First Twister AV, now this :eek:

    More choices for us consumers :D

    Detection is not bad at all and proactive features are quite nice so far.
    Plus it's ultra light. Running it on Aspire One with even less impact than avast! or AVIRA. Only on-demand scan is very slow for some reason.
    But i never do it anyway so no biggie.

    I read in another forum that the 2008 version was even better than 2009 and detection was ahead. Anyone can confirm it o_O i did not like it at all and never felt secure with Rising especially after reading here about the scandal with one of their staff or something like that. I uninstalled it right away . any feadback about rising would be appreciated here a lot
    I am so used to Avast tho`

    It did run light for me also and the proactive/prevention features were good.
    The scandal is what turned me off.

    The scandal did it for me also. I won't touch it for a few years.

    If I remember correctly, the initial scan was slow but after that the scans ran fast or faster. Reminded me of AOL AVS the old Kaspersky AV. That was the same, the first scan was slow and then after that it zipped along.

    Yes, the first initial computer scan runs so slow because a file hash checksum of every file scanned, improving files changes recognition for further scans. After did it, newer scans run faster.

    -Is the Detection of Rising AV Higher than the one AVIRA AntiVir or avast! ?

    I don't think so...

    In the last comparative I found: http://www.virusbtn.com/news/2008/09_02
    (Malware-Spyware Rates)
    -AVIRA AntiVir: 99.8%-99.0%
    -avast!: 99.3%-98.3%
    -Rising: 83.4%-77.5%

    Another thing we should NOT forget/overlook:
    Rising is a Developer with Unethical practices:
    http://chinadigitaltimes.net/tag/yu-bing/

    Now, if you judge an AV by its Look (GUI),
    then, Rising AV is great...
    BUT
    if you judge an AV by its Effectiveness (Performance),
    then, Rising AV is NOT that great!

    My only gripes are with the damned double negatives some of the settings. I dunno if I'm giving Rising AV the right to protect, be disabled or what!

    Yes! We have no ...

    Dave

    PS the Rising PC Doctor is a fairly good antispyware app, but you have to exclude its exe and dll plugin from RAV, so if you use/install Rising PC Doc, turn off RAV until you've excluded that and REBOOT.

    Don't tell me that you overlook the Low Detection rate of Rising,
    because you trust its HIPS :D so much...:D

    Well, don't underestimate their proactive part. It proved itself few times against the toughest malware like latest Virut variants. File monitor missed it but Smart Defense prevented it completelly. But it's not as annoying as Comodo's Defense+ which is one of the major pros.

    Does the 2009 version have this?

    "Smart Virtual Machine with Behaviour & Packing Pattern Recognition"

    It's listed on softpedia under key features, but I don't see that in the description anywhere else.

    Here's more on that feature from softpedia:
    "Rising Antivirus comes with an integrated smart virtual machine, which is used for virus scanning and malware recognition. RISING's proprietary smart virtual machine technology provides the additional safety for your computer without slowing down your system. Suspected code and program can be run in this virtual machine for RISING Antivirus to check for potential malicious behaviour. RISING's Behaviour & Packing Pattern Recognition allows to test such potential malware thoroughly without influencing the performance of your PC and protects your system against new viruses and unknown viruses."

    Perhaps you can ask to these "Reference Users", why are they using RISING,.......
    Perhaps by its nice look? Could be, but I don't know, and you? :argh:

    "International Clients:

    · Ajinomoto(Japan)
    · Citect(Australia)
    · Lotte(Japan)
    · Sanyo(Japan)
    · Spirax Sarco(UK)
    · Yamaha(Japan)
    · Bosch(Germany)
    · Komatsu(Japan)
    · Mitsubishi(Japan)
    · SME Bank(Korea)
    · MTL Instruments Ltd.(UK)
    · Otto Bock Healthcare(Germany)"


    (extracted from: http://www.rising-global.com/products/Rising-Antivirus-2009.html)

    If I'm remembering well, nobody here said RISING AV "is the best of...", neither "better than...".

    -Since Rising is not the BEST AV,
    and it is NOT better than AVIRA AntiVir or avast!,
    we ended up with just a nice GUI:D

    -Sorry, but the list of International Clients
    tells me Absolutely NOTHING!
    All AV vendors have International Clients...
    So, what?


    ~~ removed off-topic comment ~~


    One thing you seem to "Forget" is that Rising AV was recently accused of
    UNETHICAL practices:

    The situation in China is:

    People who do care and know how to care their pc's security don't use Rising AV.

    Besides,it is not the first time rising fighting other security software company with dishonest methods.(Calling Kaspersky "the king of FP",War with 360safe.)

    I have never been into rising because I have seen too many pcs infected with rising installed.

    It's my own opinion and maybe personal feelings about the company.

    No,I don't like Rising at all.

    Wasn't this statement connected to false detection of Rising Anti-Spyware (Rising Kaka) from KAV? I heard Kaspersky China was uncooperative and slow to fix the fp, so yeah there are two sides to that story.......:doubt:

    Rising AV has signatures for detecting adware/spyware but specialized spyware protection is only offered by the PC Doctor tool.
