    im not sure but i think virus chase used the dr.web engine or was it virus buster? Well one of those 2 uses the dr.web engine.. i pretty sure virus chaser uses the dr.web engine.

    Yes, VirusChaser uses the Dr. Web engine with some modifications in the heuristics.

    You can unlock the VirusChaser's heuristics manually.
    :D

    To unlock the heuristics,you should replace your VC's update server url with update.viruschaser.com.cn or update1.viruschaser.com.cn

    and then patch your VC 's real-time scan heuristics with the patch followed

    THEY RELEASED THE HEURISTIC UPDATE? :eek:

    Now I'm a happy boy :D

    But is it necessary that I have to use the China update server? Doesn't the HK server get the heuristic update as well? And is this patch not an automatic update o_O

    I was gonna give it a trial but, I can't seem to reach their HK site ( www.viruschaser.com.hk/eng/ ). Anywhere else I can DL the trial from?
