    some advice please:

    Want to get licensed AT app;
    Having difficulty deciding !!!

    Want it to work well : Duh. But not have to "adjust" too much

    >TDS high powered interface, I have played withe the trial and I'm not even sure what half the options are?
    ? Too much for me. Obviously good support

    >A2: very easy interface, ??not as effective. Good support

    >Ewido: good interface seems like a strong performer. Good support
    See my comment in this thread about recent test
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=87805
    http://illusivesecurity.il.funpic.de/viewtopic.php?t=79&sid=75d80dcf1dfe74982c52f623fb54837c

    >Trojan Hunter: Good interface also strong performer. Good support.
    Noted recent angry exchanges with guests

    Suppose should also have PG, Winpatrol or other such which may tip the balance to TDS

    Currently using Teatimer and careful surfing but appreciate possible risks
    (I think)

    Dont really want to have "dozens" of security apps, but realistic layered approach for home user who potters about the web uses e-mail and doesn't feel happy fooling with the Registry. etc.

    Appreciate any comments or suggestions
    Thankyou

    Regards.

    I use BOClean (website).
    Its simple and unintrusive.
    There is no trial available, but they have a good refund policy!

    You could go freebie and still have a solid protection set up. Ex. Prevx (free), MSAS, and Ewido (free). All three will give you solid protection and all for free my friend. :D Oh, and throw in SnoopFree for free anti-keylogging protection. ;)

    Hi,

    I have licensed versions of

    1) TDS-3: very strong on-demand scan, my favorite when I am cleaning a machine. Had conflicts with other real-time apps.
    2) Ewido: The one I use for real-time and on-demand scanning for all types of malware
    3) BOClean: One of the first that I purchased but nowadays only power it up sometimes for the heck of it. No on-demand scanning available
    4) TrojanHunter: Bought it a while back. Had some problems with conflicts as I installed new security apps so I no longer run it.

    Of the four, I would say Ewido is my favorite at this time. Versatility and breath of malware detections.

    Yes, same here, running Ewido constantly..sometimes together with boclean :) but I find it one of the best performers and actualy caught spyware that nod32 missed. and that would be the whole idea ;)

    Hi Rich,

    You know that single file scan is available in BOClean, right? (Open the main window and drop a file on it to scan).

    Hi guys,

    Yes, I know about BOClean's single file scan. What I was talking about was more of full file, registry, cookie type scans. Sometimes Ewido will pick up some stray stuff that may not show up during a process scan. It is also useful when cleaning up machines.

    yes, exactly Rich. If you have the luck to get some program to work on your computer, wether it is Ewido or boclean.

    but the fact that ewido has a super filescanner too (custom list, registry cleaner for malware,...) it is my choice of protection...

    But I can only agree that boclean is topnotch too...it's all what you like...we can only advise and learn from the answers given here.

    at the end it comes down to trial and learn :)
    ain't that just great George? ...:D

    For me BoClean is the least intrusive real-time scanner that I have used.... How bout the best of both BoClean and Ewido free.

    LOL the advice is all over the place :rolleyes: . Please allow me to add to the confusion :D

    For AT. I use BoClean and A2 free on the family machine and just BoClean on my personal machine. Have never found any reason to use anything else.

    The main thing to me is you recognize the need for stand alone AT seperate from your AV. Good Move! ;)

    I have to second Rich's comments. I don't have TH and haven't had conflicts w/ anything & TDS-3, but everything else may as well be my words :)
