    The annoucement has been made and TDS is no longer being continued. Some of us like myself feel a little lost - We looked to TDS being the best 'trojan scanner' out there but now what? Diamond says they now have the time to work on other projects for our protection but until that time comes - What is the best way to secure that layer of defense for the trojan side. Which AV scanner or Trojan scanner out there is the best now that TDS is out of the picture? And also what are some ways to even prevent trojans in the first place - so that I don't have to rely on a scanner so much?

    This posting I hope will get some response and help others as to which direction to go. Thanks for your speedy response in advance...

    Hi MakaFusion,

    This question has been discussed in other threads, e.g.

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=90064&highlight=tds-3

    I, as well as many others, have opted for Ewido. Other suggestions have included: BOClean, TrojanHunter, A-squared for real-time protection. All of these products have free trial periods except for BOClean. BOClean offers a full money-back guarantee.

    Hope this helps,
    Rich

    Well you basicly have four choices left, that are any good :

    BOClean The oldest of the bunch, daily updates including weekends.

    Ewido Also daily updates.

    A-squared (A2) Doesn't update as often the others, claims it doesn't have to.

    Trojan Hunter Does not update as often as the the two first.

    Truely, since this thread is basically asking the very same questons as in the other thread richf has linked to, and given that it would be more beneficial to everyone to keep it all in one place rather than have good suggestions bouncing back and forth between two threads on the same topic. So I'll close this one now.
