    What protocols does Prevx scan for malware such as viruses, trojans, worms, bots, rogues, etc..? Does Prevx scan the following protocols: http, https, SMTP, POP3, and FTP?

    None of the above. Prevx strengths are on Execution and scanning of the files but SafeOnline will Protect your online banking and credentials on HTTPS sites and HTTP if you set the protection to the Max even if you are infected! You can read more on there site http://info.prevx.com/help.asp and of course PrevxHelp will add his comments. ;)

    Ok, Thank You Triple Helix! I thought that was the case. I wanted to make sure. Users on here were talking about substituting their AV with Prevx. I thought Prevx was designed to work with your AV to catch malware that your AV is prone to miss.

    Yes you can do that I still have Prevx & NOD32 on my desktop till the License runs out but as you know malware can only infect you if you execute and that's when Prevx steps in! And if Prevx can't clean it one of there Engineers will clean your machine free of charge with a paid license! ;)

    I run my Dual Boot Laptop with Prevx only now as it so light on resources as it is a complete Anti-Malware! This is very interesting http://www.prevx.com/certification.asp
