My intention here is not to rehash the same old conversations about Dr Web. Nor is it to say that Dr Web is better than X or X is better than Dr Web because of Y. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable than me can help me fill in the blanks. I've always liked Dr Web's philiosophy of concision; small yet powerful. It should be said that I do not agree with many philosophies of other products discussed here that result in the product not being the best it can be. NOD32 for instance adds definitions on a priority basis which might help most but not everyone; some are bound to be left in the cold. VBA32, while it does have powerful hueristics and seems to be rapidly adding signatures seems to have no regard for resource usage and is content with VBA32 going from lightweight to bloatware. However, these products detect more, at the moment, than Dr Web does. But will that always be the case? Both NOD32 and recently VBA32 (in the current beta) have made a point to tell the user that they are attempting to make their product an all-in-one scanner for malware, adding detection capabilities for stealth maleware as well as rootkits. Dr Web has yet to make such a claim. Will Dr Web ever intend itself to be an all-in-one solution? I ask because lisencing time is near and because I am interested. I understand Dr Web has released a beta version of the new scanning engine. But is it's intent then to improve upon existing detection scores, or is it to rise to the top in terms of what it can detect? Where does Dr Web's philosophy dictate should be the case?
