A-Squared is actually a excellent security program.

But no two computers are alike, therefore some will have no
troubles with certain programs, and others have heaps of it.
That goes nearly for all software that needs to install so
deep in the system.

A-Squared have false positives from time to time, but thats
because it is so aggressive. But rather one false positive
to many, than the other way around :)

The person at another forum who posted the link had the same problem memory issue I did. I like the program itself and have plenty of memory to spare for 100mb and it loads up faster than anything I've used before. I also like the web traffic protection or whatever it is called, so I'm keeping it until I find something that really turns me off.

The problems I have with it are not what it finds or how it protects but when it removes the infections. I have used it on 5 or so separate computers that were infected 3 of them it made blue screen which I was unable to repair and had to do a format reinstall. 1 it fixed fine and the other also blue screened but I was able to fix it. As far as a regular removal tool I wouldn't recommend it to customers.
