you can try here;
Does Trustport2009 still have option of multiple engines?
If so what engines are standard and what ones are optional?
same as 2008
you can see;
"TrustPort Antivirus has been designed and built upon advanced scanning technologies of renowned world manufactures (AVG, Norman, Dr. Web, VirusBlokAda a Ewido)."
So what's new according to 2008?
Pretty sure that it looks the same as version 2008?!
Yup...same as last year.
5 engines?? that thing must be a huge system hog??
Many engines are enabled..
hmm grisoft and ewido? surely it would be one engine now? since avg now owns ewido and intergrated it in to there engine
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.
wow 5 engines ?
which engine does they use?
See 3rd screenie in post #10 above
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
seriously i can not even imagine how this would bog down with all 5 engines..how is detection overall and cleanup
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.
i would actually pay a decent amount for that kind of program that would be worth it...
Now that would be ultimate ... droolware !!
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.
