GRISOFT, the maker of award-winning AVG Anti-Virus, today announced the release of ewido anti-spyware 4.0, which provides comprehensive protection against a wide array of security threats. This new version is the only anti-spyware software to include a powerful combination of advanced security features such as generic unpacking of compressed malware, true memory scanning, heuristics, and use of binary signatures for the most thorough analysis of programs that place users’ computers at risk.

Hi, one notices that this board already suggests using this program if a victim suspects a malware infection, the trial 30day version that is; however, whether this board suggests going on to buy it I don't know, personally I don't like paying for things on the one hand, nor the fact that ewido is a resorce hog on the other. It would seem that nothing is 100% but with an AV I imagine that one thinks of it as a comprimise between protection and weight(like a suit of armour then) where one sees that it is as important to have something sturdy as it is to have something that still allows for a certain amoumt of movement.

Actually, flea, Ewido is NOT a resource hog. :whistling: I've never had any complaints about it from people I've recommended it to.

Also, the only thing you really lose after the 30 day trial is the automatic updater for the virus database. After that, it's still fully functional, and can be updated manually. I've been using it over a year now on my own machine with no problems.

Hi Kat, not having it out with but I started a thread below to find out for myself. And also I wonder then if it isn't a resorce hog why we don't suggest it a perminant AV for the victim.

Anyway, it will be good the see how this turns out, and right or wrong I am still you fan both because of the good work you do and because only someone like you appreciate the joy of real Swiss chocolate then.

Thanks Kat, and thanks for replying there too, the question remains is whether to have it running all the time and how much resorce does that take, in fact two questions then.
