    Level 2
    At the moment, the only second opinion scanner I would trust would be Hitman Pro. All the rest have not convinced me that they would detect anything more than an established AV vendor would..

    If it has gone through to be detected, it is possibly too late anyway. In case of infection I would nuke my system and reinstall an older system image backup..


    Level 29
    I would consider ZAM Free as a secondary opinion scanner, as I don't with your thesis based off on demand scanners, but like with everything in IT, it's alls one opinion and disagreements/agreement always happen in a civil manner.

    Otherwise great config, thanks.
