    yes, some reviews pointed out the fact that Tauscan doesn't deal with polymorphic trojans, when some others do.

    If you have Trojan Hunter and run this with real-time monitor enabled together with Kaspersky, then you don't need Tauscan or The Cleaner.

    Yes you can add the free versions of both Ewido & A2, A2's on-demand scanner is not that great, but i have used it with Kaspersky without trouble.

    Take my word for it. Neither of those two anti Trojan scanners are any good. I used both and was very unsatisfied. I recommend Trojanhunter or even better BoClean.

    Hopefully not all in real time. IMHO, just run KAV in real time and the free Ewido/Trojan Hunter as file scanners for AT protection.

    Then if you visit high-risk sites, load up the TH Guard. No need for the Cleaner or Tauscan with your present software.

    Years ago 'The Cleaner' was the one people talked about, and when people had trouble with Trojans on their system the advice I used to hear was to get a copy of that. We have gone a long way since then, and many other products have sprung up. It's sometimes difficult for a "newbie" to know what's best to do.
