    a quick question for emisoft user, does it have many false positive?
    I read some review and they all said its very good at detection but suffer from many false positive and also so so removal capability.

    ps: I'm not trying to destroy emisoft reputation, I ask because I really interested to buy it :D

    I have had very few false positives. I used the free version for maybe two years and now the paid version for around six months.

    ROUTER: Linksys WRT54GS / Tomato / WPA2/ Norton DNS. Norton DNS has helped my mother avoid some BS. She is rocking KIS (Current version) but once again, nothing detects everything.


    My computer:
    WIN 7 64BIT:

    Real-time:
    ZoneAlarm Extreme Security (Super Scan, Scan When Reading and Writing, and added Scanning of Network Files.)
    ForceField On

    On-Demand:
    A-Squared (On USB drive)
    SuperAntiSpyware
    AviraMalwareBytes AntiMalware (Paid, however not set to active)

    Browsers:
    FireFox: NoScript, WOT,ForecastFox, FoxyTunes, Fire FTP, DownThemAll, ChatZilla, BetterPrivacy
    Chrome
    Opera

    Other:
    Virtual Box
    Panda USB vaccine

    Any suggestions for my setup? I don't browse that many "risky" sites..... Just every now and then.

    I think you're gonna like it.
    I noticed a small improvement in speed when I switched from NortonDNS to ClearCloud... one of those enhancements that are hard to document, but you feel the difference anyway?

    Well so far I've used it on a few of my sites and its about the same as norton DNS. I'll keep using it for a few days and check back in.

    Hahaha yeah, it's been flawless with Acronis (I've done a dozen recovers already) :D
    It's more like an OS issue :)

    Owh please share if its heavier (or lighter) compared to emsisoft . I'm really interested in that


    my own trial with emsisoft cmd is very nice, but the scan does take to long, I hope the new release will be blazing fast :D
