    It requires a reboot after install and updates,Hence in shadow mode will lose changes on reboot,therefore I can not judge it based that its not fully updated or written to the actual drive.

    Thanks.
    Yes, it's a bit difficult to see the other from here and even trying to figure out what it looks like.

    @ Macstorm your Welcome.


    @ giddyup,Hey I just gave Solo a full install updated and gave it A RUN.The Scan speed is pretty fast. I had one FP that of my cyberlink was a trojan.The scan speeds are pretty fast and the foot print is light but however a simple test of the eicar failed detection I tried a few times same results.

    Solo is an Indian AV solution. It detects most samples that exist in wild (in India). Has weak spyware/adware protection.
    Its popular among cybercafe owners in India. Seems they have stuck a deal with some of the associations.

    Expect it to detect between 30-40% malware from worldwide wild sample set. Virus.gr tests says Solo 7.0 detected 21% samples.

    I thought surly someone would remember Solo antivirus, it has been around for a while in one form or another. I don't remember it ever being to popular though.


    an older version== Solo AntiVirus 2007 5.1.5.7.3
