    Thank you roger for your reply, I appreciate your input.

    I am currently testing this on one of my testbed junker PCs and noticed a few thing's

    What I like:

    • The layout and the overall interface/look is nice, simple and clean.
    • Features are quite nice
    • Memory consumption is very small
    • Installing and Uninstalling the program was fast
    • No third-party junk.

    What I don't like:
    • It appears to not work along side Sandboxie, I'm sure it would require some tweaking (Launching browsers through Sandboxie)
    • Permanent deselection of sub categories aren't present or isn't working correctly (Example: Deselecting Invalid Shortcuts or Windows Logs from the scan options doesn't remember your choice for next cleanup, it always remains selected by default)
    • I don't like the lock in feature for the "Default Search Engine" area, especially if I am choosing to use a different search engine, such as DuckDuckGo or Starpage. Unfortunately, only the popular search engines are selectable

    I posted the above, just in case others may want to give it a try.

    Also there's no ignore list as of yet. For example it it wants to remove the Java updater from Windows startup and I have to uncheck after every scan before doing a clean.

    Baidu's PC Faster was the same, but recently they added an ignore list.

    Also, I don't know why it wants to clean the prefetch folder. I would seem that by default it wants to clean everything in there.

    Still, it is a very polished and professional looking product for something so new.

    It definitely has it's quirks, hopefully they'll fix them soon.

    I agree, it is very polished and professional looking, especially for it being new.

    I disabled SRP and removed Sandboxie. After few years I installed Kaspersky AV. I must say I'm really impressed with it. It's really light! :thumb:

    Not having too much fun with avast's latest DeepScreen technology, been having problems left and right (False positives with uninstallers).

    I understand it's an RC and it has to go through extensive testing, but it kind of makes me less excited for version 9/2014. So, that being said, I'm going to be taking a break from avast for awhile.

    So, here is what I'm using now.

    Avira Free Antivirus + K9 Web Protection + NoVirusThanks EXE Radar Pro

    Webroot SecureAnywhere Firewall is very efficient.

    From here,

    Removed TinyWall due to bugs (had trouble even uninstalling it), incompatibility with CyberGhost VPN and iTunes WiFi Sync (need to disable TinyWall), and general lack of need for outbound control on a clean system. Oh well, it was interesting.

    Shadow Defender 1.3.0.457 and the new AVAST 2014 RC3 (free).

    Firewall is Windows and hardware = router.

    Also have Emsisoft Emergency Kit for 2nd opinion - run once a month or so.

    Added Avast Antivirus beta 8.

    Removed Bitdefender, it was too heavy on resources and too many false positives which didn't get quarantined.
