    Why are there no tests for this program yet?? The common sense reason jumps to mind but I have searched and have not found anything about it yet? It is my understanding that the inspector is working for them thus his reputation is very good but the programs??!?!?!

    Thoughts please?

    I believe testers need the vendors permission to test. Perhaps The Inspector doesn't think it's ready for that yet.

    :D sounds sweet, even if tests arent 100% accurate, theyre always fun to read.

    Just removed the software after a 15 day trial.
    It was the lightest combo I've trialled with EQSecure and the scanning was exactly as the writeup said on Sunbelt's website. No loss of performance when scanning and didn't hog resources all all.

    I was a bit disappointed to find that no-one had tested it which kinda makes it a 'chocolate fireguard' like Comodo's AV.
    Anyone can shout from the hills that their offering is the best thing since sliced bread but until someone else sings from the same hymn book it's all nonsense.

    Once Vipre gets the backing from Virus Bulletin and/or AV-Comparatives I for one will purchase the package.
    Until then I will stick to my 6 month free trial of Avira.

    :)
