RE: Ad-Aware 11 Sneak Peek Preview Public

Lavasoft need to fix their blog issues, because:
1) I can never view any of their images
2) Blog posts always go missing

Probably the main reason for dumping VIPRE is compatibility issues, however I agree that there are just too many AV's using BitDefender's engine and they all have their issues with high false positives.

It would be nice to see more AV's using Kaspersky or ESET.

Thanks. :D

AFAIK, none using ESET, only Zonealarm using Kaspersky, Baidu using Avira, UnThreat using Vipre, and many using Bitdefender.

it will be good to see if some more paid engines comes with free version antivirus, Kaspersky would be great, zonelalarm is good, but its toooooo heavy
