    What AV do you use alongside your AT and did your AT ever actually catch a trojan in real-time that got passed your AV?

    1) I'm using Ewido alongside Kaspersky for about 1.5 years.

    2) No, Ewido has never caught a trojan. Kaspersky has trapped all up to now.

    I also run BOClean now and then in real-time, but it does have high CPU spikes when I am running it - probably caused by conflicts with ProcessGuard.

    I use TDS-3 as a backup on-demand scanner.

    I'm waiting for the new version of ewido to use it with NOD32, if its resources was lower on the new version...

    I also have the a2 personal, but find some incompatibilities...

    A-squared on demand scan finds some cookies now and then.

    ewido and a-squared for me. theyre the only well-known ATs that offer a fully functional 30-day trial. plus together they can catch anything that NOD32 mightve missed.

    I'm running TDS-3's exe protection. (ProcessGuard and RegDefend, too, of course).

    No, it hasn't had any business yet - NOD32 has caught everything that needed to be caught, which is fine by me (I still feel better with TDS-3 running just in case...). Pete

    In real time I'm running Ewido (latest beta). Also, I keep TDS-3 sitting the bench for a second opinion.

    :) I'm running both Trojan Hunter and A-Squared .... both with their respective guards enabled.

    HR :cool:

    While I do have and use TDS, I only use it for OD scans, I just don't feel like there's the need to run it resident. :)

    We have the same two, HR....although I don't have the pay version of A-Squared, so I use the free for on-demand scanning. The TrojanHunter Guard does run continuously for me, though....

    None for now, I may get one in the future, but at the moment with my safe browsing habits and NOD32 I feel safe. I do have Ewido and A2 free for on-demand scans, they have never found anything, outside of a tracking cookie by Ewido.

    I currently run Pest Patrol's Mem check for real time antitrojan protection. One time I tested it against Emsisoft's fake trojan test, and Pest Patrol jumps right into action and deletes it.

    I know how famous Pest Patrol is for its false positives but its Mem Scanner is better in this area [than running actual full manual system scans] because it is far less prone to any FPs and seems to do a decent job at detecting trojans in realtime.

    I also use my AV and MSAS for their realtime scanning for malware too, not to mention all my IDS software. ;)

    NOD32 + TDS-3 here

    NOD32 has always jumped in first but both are first class in my book.

    None.
    Not even for on demand, let alone real time


    I'm not stupid enough to let trojans through this minimalist security setup. :)

    Ewido mainly tbh, nod32 (for what it's worth regarding trojans, but I don't complain cause I like a team and not a one man show...), a2 and boclean (switching between the two on VmWare Station, but I do like the two a lot more these days!!)

    trojanhunter I gave to my ex and glad I kept tds as mainly ondemand scanner. never ever felt sorry for tds-3 purchase, but you got to give it it's place in your other tools (hence memory stuff...)

    all the monitoring stuff I do not see this as antitrojan, however they do are capable of catching/blocking nasty stuff :p

    Now I'm running the a-squared guard, and seems to work very well...

    The IDS feature is good and use low resources :)

    The only one I have ever run, the only one I ever felt I needed, the one whose creator gives great service.

    BoClean=TrojanDefense ;)
