Just wondering what you all's opinions are on Immunet if any opinion at all.

With the recent release of 6.0 I got to remembering that it scored on the higher side in some of the youtube tests and was wanting to give it a try, but I wasn't wanting to have to uninstall/reinstall Kasperky if Immunets just a one off product not worth much of a glance.

Immunet is good. Kaspersky is greater :)

You don't use Immunet as your primary AV

I figured (y) there are a few drawbacks to Kaspersky Free though, notably that it doesnt auto-remove PUP threats.

Thats the thing, I would be using it as a main AV. Thats why I'm asking opinions on it to see if anyones tested it in-depth
really put it through the "Ringer" you know lol

Recently, I used Panda Free AV (which comes with PUP protection and auto USB detection) with Immunet. This combo works well. Panda Free AV is the primary AV here. I disabled ClamAV in Immunet since Panda is also providing offline protection.

I removed them and then went on a suicidal mission in the quest for a stronger security system :p

It

I've always liked Panda Cloud, but it suffers from the same condition that Bitdefender Free does on my system which is that detection popups appear about 30seconds to a full minute after the file has been removed. It really is a small annoyance but to me it is detrimental lol

Back when i tested Immunet on the Hub, i ended up quitting the test. It failed in nearly all malware samples both static and dynamic.
I saw that, but then I see the testers on youtube getting better results. But that of course brings in the question of sample age ect.

You can use Unchecky for PUPs with Panda Free AV's PUP protection

Unchecky - Keeps your checkboxes clear

It has a decent enough detection rate and is very light on resources(providing you don`t load Clamwin)Works well as an extra layer of protection to an already secure setup via CFW,VoodooShield etc or as a companion AV.

It wouldn`t be a replacement for the usual big AV vendors but then again it`s not mean`t to be.V6 has been a bit buggy on my machines so I`m using v5 until they iron it all out.

6.0.6.10600 has been a total disaster honestly. That software created more problem than resolving. I've installed it on a lab rig with specialized software and that software started to delete files here and there and mess up with temporary files... Perhaps I have been unlucky but from my perspective an antivirus that breaks stuff without any warning is no better than a virus.
