Hi
I 'm testing and has a very clean UI, it is easy to configure. What I did not like, and also i do not understand, is how slow it is to scan .
I mean, let's see, I download this sample http://www5.zippyshare.com/v/8yAhYVQN/file.html a file of 553 kb . It took more than three minutes to scan it!

The computer has taken me a little longer to boot than the Privatefirewall + Avira free combination .
I'll keep trying for today , but I think this AV has little future on my computer,
since detection is also being lower

The differences between v3 and v4.

3.0
  • This is a paid product, but can be used as a lite free version which does not remove any threats found, but otherwise is fully functional.
  • Extremely light.
  • Includes a firewall.
  • Is highy configurable.

4.0S
  • Completely free.
  • Heavier that v3.
  • No firewall.
  • A lot less configurable than v3.
  • Slow scan times.
  • Buggy.

At the moment, version 3 is a better product due to the bugs in version 4, and is also noticably lighter. Despite being an old product, it still receives program updates, and was updated a month ago, and receives the same definition updates as v4.

Both versions can be configured to not to automatically quarantine threats. Also it is easy to ignore found threats with both versions. In v3 you can do so from the logs screen, whereas in v4 there is an option on the popup warnning when a threat is found to ignore it.

I am really liking v3 due to it being very light - even when doing scans, being able to prompt for action when a threat is found, and being easily able to add files to the whitelist.

According to this page the free version 4 lacks of important features like firewall, BB, MBR protection and ransomware protection

Someone wanted to test this product for me but I see he got ban :D
nProtect Anti-Virus/Spyware V4.0
nProtect.com
Can someone pls test both of them?
Just installed the AVS v4.0 free and works well with Immunet, ZAL, HMPA and SuperAntiSpyware

One nice thing is that it auto scans when a USB device is inserted (y)

Not sure of the NOS. Looks like it may have some overlap features with AVS 4.0 paid version like the malware monitoring and network protection features

If I'll to get the paid AVS 4.0 and NOS I'll need to get rid of HMPA and ZAL......hmmmmmm....can consider as HMPA and ZAL licenses expiring next month. Also, can get rid of MCShield and USB Disk Security for auto-scanning of USB devices

One thing I noticed it has no protection against PUP/PUA, arp protection/spoofing etc

To answer your question straight

They are independent programs. For normal net surfing the AVS 4.0 will operate. When dealing with financial transactions the NOS will come in

It's just like the Internet Security Suites which have those features incorporated into a single program. But in this case for AVS 4.0 and NOS they are separate programs.

The tech support says there seems to have no conflict to have both but they cannot operate together. Don't understand what that Korean is trying to say. :rolleyes:

Note:- I think the features in NOS will NOT protect a user when he surfs the net normally i.e. not visiting financial websites. If that's the case then having an Internet Security Suite with those combined features is better

Will have to add MBAE and Ghostpress anti-keylogger since there's no HMPA and ZAL
