    Just installed it to try it out. It has a very simple user interface with pretty much no configurable settings except on/off. On demand has 4 scan levels turbo/quick/full/deep with advanced heuristic detection, i tried the turbo scan it actually wasn't very quick at all. It uses around 15-20mb of ram and has 105,000+ signatures in its database.
    Although its a free download its only an evaluation version which has a secure buy option if the user wants to pay $39.95 for a subscription.
    I couldn't see any noticeable difference between running this or nod32 on my dual core laptop.

    Is it just me that this thing reminds me of ViruScape AV ?

    EDIT:
    And it's detection is indeed terrible and it's apperantly not even capable of detecting Polip...

    That was indeed the official site for ViruScape, but now it holds little importance because ViruScape was discontinued and the ViruScape 2.0 code (which was supposed to be their "dynamite" :blink:) was apparently sold to another company. The details of the transaction are not made clear.
