    I can't even remember a "free" one at all. Ewido has a free on-demand scanner and it's the best (between "dedicated anti-trojan" on demand scanners), but it's not really "free".

    You have to start to search on web ;)

    Go to Google.com, or any other websearch, and type "ewido anti-malware", without the "".
    Then you will have a list...

    ewido anti-malware: www.ewido.net ;)

    Hi,
    check out some of the software at the end of this page - http://www.antirootkit.com/software.htm - There is prevention software available that keeps an eye on the system areas that trojans might want to use.

    regards

    Ewido hands down. It's a good Anti Malware program. Take a look at the link Blackcat posted. ;)

    The trouble with "Free", is that you get what you paid for.

    Give me a break. There are a million examples of open source software much better than commercial software.

    In case you hadn't noticed, the thread is about AT software. There is a cost in time and money to the authors to keep their definitions updated.

    Well, I'm sorry but by reading your sentence it didn't seem like you were referring to a particular kind of software:
    It can be argued that the above is (in a way) true for software that needs constant definitions updates. It certainly is NOT true for much of the rest. A BSD webserver is "free" and it's a hell of a lot more stable and secure than a Windows server.

    Unlike you, I wouldn't be mentioning the BSD webserver in a thread about AntiTrojans. It is known as being on topic.

    Cool it people, TNT was only trying to say an example of when free is better than paid, and he was definately right in his statement. You previously stated that
    and TNT was trying to give you an example of how that is not correct.

    In the terms of a free anti-trojan, it is probably best to download both a-squared and ewido since they are both free on-demand scanners.

    But unlike you, I am aware of the obvious: that 'The trouble with "Free", is that you get what you paid for' is an utter rubbish sentence that is constantly negated by facts. :D

    It really doesn't matter that you then tried to correct your ridiculous statement by saying that it is true only for antitrojans. Your sentence as it was was clearly NOT referring exclusively to anti-trojans.

    My choice is Trojan Remover. In the four years I have had this software, no Trojans whatsoever, or malware. As for the comparison review, I take that for a grain of salt, there are always hidden agena's on these reviews. However I respect everyones opinion, to each his own.

    For free I'd take Ewido without a second thought.

    Okay, then how about being *aware* of the title of this thread? It might help keep you on the topic & off the soapbox.:cautious:

    Meanwhile, back at the thread --- Ewido is excellent, free or not. A-squared is also quite good, but its free version scans on-demand only.

    I agree with Bellgamin.....on his observation. What really boils down to is what works best for you and what you are comfortable with. Whether its free and paid if your happy with it God Bless......... You have to simple try different ones out and choose....

    Does that mean I should use TrojanHunter??

    I'm confused , is this thread about free anti-trojans or just anti-trojans in general? The title doesn't say free, but the person who started this thread wants to know only about free.

    I guess that why you peeps are arguing huh? Let's all be friends!

    Or is this argument really about something else that is left undersaid?

    What about a "sandbox" to protect you. Sandboxie is free - you can search Wilders and find more info. Same goes for Bufferzone.

    Defensewall Sandbox HIPS costs USD 29.-

    Sandboxes need no updating of sigs - ever. So you need not pay every year.

    Dont know about other sandboxes, but DW works silently and no popups - ever.

    Ewido is the best free online trojan scanner I know of. I use it to check my system, but since I started surfing and emailing out of a sandbox Ewido never finds anything.

    Best Regards
