    Say what you like about IObit, they sure know how to make a good GUI.
    Won't try it though.

    No. I just don't need it. I have so many AV licenses already.

    I'm just interested to see how the ransomware engine performs. The rest I don't really care

    I will test it to see if under the pretty GUI there is also the substance.

    It looks like a remake of Qihoo imo. I'm personally not interested in it. It has a nice new UI, but it's only bitdefender engine and I doubt that that new anti-ransomware engine is adding much more protection. I can be wrong of course, but in the past it wasn't really a great product.

    IOBit products have been sporting Bitdefender engine since long, but I have learned that their products aren't effective enough.
    And using BD engine in Malware Fighter needs premium. Enough said!

    Anyways, the only impressive toy is the BD engine, and its not in scarcity outside. So why bother?

    Honestly, Iobit database is not literally improving and since BD signatures is included hence an obvious results for sure.

    I'm wondering how Iobit's cloud mechanism actually work, as it perform poorly from numerous reviews.

    28 voted No, but how many are based on "They stole from Malwarebytes last century" vs "Not interested". :D

    Will definitely give this a try, post-beta release.
