    Since the 2015 seems to be dead. I thought of creating one.

    Currently running the AV in trial mode, not a big fan of the GUI but who cares.

    The initial signatures update took well over 5 minutes on my 100 MBPS Down connection.

    Any thoughts about this? I like how the AV only has no HTTP scanner. That's all I need, a file scanner with nothing that may or may not cripple my internet connection.

    I hope it's stable and doesn't have any quirks.

    They are ranked pretty well according to the latest VB100 report:

    hmmm, that's not good.

    Can you share more details on that incident? What did their tech support say about that?

    I mean, did it just randomly decide to delete system files or whatnot?

    PC Magazine reviewed the 2015 ver. here: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2476376,00.asp with the comment that malware detection quite good. Rube didn't care for the HIPS as noted below since it appears to be "tightly configured." Good for those w/tech smarts and bad for the average user.

    I just sent an email to TrustPort's tech support asking them how to disable scanning of newly inserted devices. I received a reply within 15 minutes. Excellent support:

    It decided to delete system files after an update. Tech support didnt have an answer.

    I just sent TrustPort's support an email asking them about my license and if I want to reinstall the AV after a format how is it handled. They replied within 5 minutes telling me that I am free to do so as they monitor how many computers are using the license at the same time. Nice to know that I don't have to deal with de-activating the license and any re-activation limits.

    Great support I always get a reply very quickly.

    AFAIK it runs an optimization scan when system is idle. After that it feels light.

    I have been preaching how good it is for 2 years. I realize BigC had issues bit that can happen to anyone with any product. Personally it is what I use and works very well.

    Hopefully no one else will have the problems I had with it. I actually liked it until Armageddon came down on my PC.

    got my refund today. I got more FPs than I consider normal and adding them to the exclusions is not very easy
