    It appears that they're using their own engine.It's currently being tested for the VB100 apparently.

    Looks really nice (visually). I'll test it a bit today. If it's BD, then that's not all that bad considering it's free.

    It looks like the av is free but you have pay monthly for the online backup.

    Another free AV? Detection and performance result? They are using outdated BitDefender engine.

    This program obviously never heard of Security Center inside Windows because it's not recognized by the Windows Security Center...
    There also isn't much to set so it's perfect for beginner users. I'm just preparing to test it with live malware to see how it works.

    I'm still waiting for the initial scan to complete. It's not exactly the fastest, though you have to take into account that it's running inside VirtualPC.
    But still, on hardware that i'm using (Core i7 920 and 6GB of RAM with a WD Caviar Black 2TB) it's scanning really slowly.

    From the ZenOK official site:

    "ZENOK FREE ANTIVIRUS 2010 is a FULL VERSION antivirus suite. This amazingly efficient tool is five years ahead of any other security suite"....

    What i dont like is the way they r trying to make money, through a pyramid sell scheme: http://www.zenok.com/en/affiliate/

    "The ZenOK Affiliate Program pays you once after a customer's first monthly payment, plus 20% of that customer's future monthly fees for as long as their paid account remains open."

    I'm not sure in which category is 5 years ahead of the others, but that category certainly isn't detection. Based on MDL, it detected only 1 thing (supposedly, considering i got a acess denied message, but no warning from ZenOk itself). Judging by that, i can't really recommend it. I've seen more spectacular results from completely rubbish antiviruses or even the most mediocre ones. This one just doesn't cut it. If you want an easy to use low profile thing, use MSE. At least i know it has a proven detection track record in many departments...

    Zen = Horrible

    Just compiled poison ivy to be fully undetected to their whole suite. Bypassed all levels and i am able to control the machine as i please :ninja:

    more like 10 years behind all other security suites :shifty:

    it says five years ahead of any other security suite which is at least ridiculous.... not even the major players in the industry can assert stuff like that

    I think i can safely say you're much better protected with ClamWin than with this crap.

    I just installed it and now running my first scan. They require you to give out your phone number to register which is BS.
    Of coarse I gave them a fake phone number. Once thing that I have already noticed is the AV has no configuration settings.
    Just has "Start Antivirus Full Scan Now", "Snooze Scan", "Wake Up Scan" and "Quarantine". That is it.
    No real-time settings, no scan settings, no exclusions list for false positives, no update settings, I'm not sure if it even has web protection.

    It is very basic and not ready for prime time. Hopefully they will address these issues.
    I wonder if they are trying to pass off a free antivirus just to get you to pay for their online backup service?

    I backup my files to my external Maxtor OneTouch4 Plus, I don't trust online backup.

    Thanks.:)

    It would not be wrong with all that if it would have detected at least something.
    But it has detected exactly um nothing. That's just awful even for BitDefender engine...

    So does this use an old Bitdefender engine,or a stripped down one,since it doesn't seem to compare by any means from what I read.o_O

    Also what does this 'leapfrog' heuristics technology comprise of,seeing that there doesn't appear to be any scanner settings adjustment o_O

    Zen OKo_O no, the author's Zen is definately way from ok :)

    the first time it rebooted it crashed peerblock and froze the whole pc. ctrl+alt+del don't even respond and i have to hit the reset switch to reboot :(

    second reboot seems to have done something as both booted without error. but as the other poster said, windows security centre don't even know it!

    oh, the first screen came up with nothing but wanting you to create an account. that's when i decided it has to go, period..........

    edit: why are they all like to use the umbrella icon? zenok green umbrella with small red handle, rising av with full green umbrella, and avira with red umbrella :)

    :D Because its a good idea for a security software, I think Avira is the first compagny that used it.

    What are you guys complaining about?
    They say they're "five years ahead".
    Of course the malware will have to catch up before ZenOK will detect it! ;)
