    Hello,
    Does Trustport2009 still have option of multiple engines?
    If so what engines are standard and what ones are optional?

    lol, new doesnt always mean new. Some new paint, redesign a website, and poof, a whole new product. It takes a tad more then that to fool the members here.;)

    I ran the trial of the 2008 version (same antivirus and antispyware applications) and the Ewido and Grisoft engines were separate and it was a resource hog. While I liked the user interface and overall configurability, I couldn't deal with the extremely slow scanning process. The best I can remember is that it took almost fifty minutes to scan less than 5gb. I uninstalled Trustport, reinstalled, and the scan time was essentially the same. Virus Bulletin described the scan times as very slow in their latest tests.

    You can use all engines at the same time if you like, or just one or two. It's a matter of flavour really :) I find it a little too heavy on my system, so i don't use it. I see they "shined up" the GUI, in this new version :)

    Those engines simply don't impress me. ewido?! Now if they were from Avira, Norton, Kaspersky, SUPERAntiSpyware, and Malwarebytes, we could talk subscription. That's what I would call 'MegaAntiMalware'.

    Malware would have no chance with that combo.

    From what I recall about my brief (about 2 day) trial of Trustport, they advise to not use any more than two of the engines at any time, reserving the others for on-demand scanning.

    Although Trustport gets almost universally great results and ratings, I found the extremely slow scan and update times to be something I didn't want to deal with at any price. My opinion is that equally good- probably better security can be obtained using the free Avast 4.8 for my primary antivirus, Avira (free) for a second opinion, Malwarebytes (free), and the free PC Tools, Online Armor, Comodo, or Zone Alarm firewall.

    Just an opinion from someone who's tried them all.
