    i have used a utility called SmartCOP to detect viruses
    and it found 6 viruses NOD32 missed
    any idea about this utility and how reliable can be
    Smartcop can be found here
    http://www.s-cop.com/
    and i have used their SmartCOP Virus Scanner which is free utility
    the utility is very simple and fast and it doesn't need even installing
    just unzip and scan

    From the looks of it... those detections are possible false positives. Submit those files (if you still have a copy of them) to something like Virustotal/ Jotti's online malware scanner... im almost certain most if not all will come back CLEAN.

    Remember no one scanner can detect 100% of malware.

    hi tahoma,
    the gui isn't the issue, i am concerned about the result
    you can get the scanner from here
    http://www.s-cop.com/free-scanner.html

    try it if you are interested, i bet you will find something

    it wouldn't be the main issue if it detects viruses in your machine would it?
    does any of you who replied gave it a shot?
    i am curious

    From what i see BSPlayer's exe is supposed to be infected?As far i as i know you can only dowload it from the dev's site (secondary sites simply link to his) and i use it myself and it's definitely not infected.

    C:\Program Files\WinRAR\Default.SFX is a virus? I think not.

    Seems like SmartCop isn't very Smart.

    It's a corrupted zip. Thread seems like a sales plug anyway.

    I'm not interested, unknown company, no (independent) tests available, and found some faked user reviews written by the company itself.

    Conclusion: bad stuff and bad company, keep hands off!

    Dont trust this Anti-Virus, please. I wouldn't trust it no matter how much they advertise it!

    The only Indian company I know of, which didnt use cheap tricks to make people buy their software, is MicroWorld.

    Dont touch this software with a ten-foot pole!

    Well, Mr. "Ninja Master" they look like FP's to me as well. I'm scanning at the moment and it's turned up 2 FP already.

    Given the results you posted, its clearly a false positive. Also, keep in mind when it comes to computer security, it's best to go by the motto " it's bad until proven good." ;)

    Hi,

    False Postives can ofen cause more problems than viruses. Users, without knowing, can delete very important entries in their system making a system unusable and sometimes unrecoverable (just like a virus). Pest Patrol is an example of a well-know product that has excessive FPs. I think it is best to stay away with products that have too many FPs - though some FPs are unavoidable in all products, especially if it uses heuristics.

    Rich

    I'm sure 99% of folks here want to see SmartCOP succeed. We all benefit when a truly effective AV enters the competitive market.

    Ergo, a friend of SmartCOP should advise them that they have to BUILD a reputation -- not merely *proclaim* how good they are. For instance, sign up with Jotti as VBA32 has done; hand out free licenses to reputable testers such as Comparatives. Etc.

    I too tried it out and had the two infections you reported (Multibot Pro and Sobig.F), so it looks like the source is definitely the SmartCop free scanner. It's a good thing I had other capable products guarding my PC whilst trying it out. Worrying...
